What is an OSP file?

An OSP file is a video editing project file created by OpenShot, an open-source video editor for Linux. It contains references to audio, video, and image files, as well as transitions, effects, and sequencing information. OSP files are used for saving and loading video editing projects and exporting them to one of several supported output video formats.
