Editors' Review

NCH's VideoPad Master's Edition 3.74 adds unlimited audio tracks and plugin support to a fast and easy-to-use video suite. You can drag and drop clips into Timeline and Storyboard tabs for easy editing, rearranging, and converting. It's compatible with camcorder feeds, HD, and 3D and includes a wide range of filters, effects, and transitions.

Pros

Office-style layout: A Ribbon-style toolbar and a multi-window layout provide a familiar look and intuitive feel to VideoPad's well-rendered user interface. It's clean and efficient, thanks in part to embedded controls that appear in every clip for fast, on-the-spot editing.

Many controls: Every menu is full of useful items, and every tab has sub-tabs in VideoPad's control suite. For example, the Transitions menu has 12 selections, including Fade, Wipe, and Reveal; clicking More Transitions uncovers 24 more choices, from Diamond to Page Curl to four kinds of Split.

Add SFX, Suite, and Help: The Audio tab's Add SFX button downloads clips from a stock sound effects library. Clicking Suite accesses NCH tools that integrate with VideoPad. The Help menu is packed with resources.

Cons

Pop-up nags: Pop-ups noting we'd downloaded VideoPad and asking what we thought of it were annoying.

Bottom Line

VideoPad Master's Edition impressed with its no-nonsense performance and well-thought-out features. It belongs on any shortlist of top-quality video suites for home users.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of VideoPad Master's Edition 3.74.

February 02, 2016  |  By halseyho

 |  Version: VideoPad Masters Edition 4.21

Pros

it's easy to use

Cons

things that used to be a one step things with the update became like a 7 step process which i'm not here for

Summary

i like it, i'm still going to use it, but i find things like cropping or rotating a video that are supposed to be (and used to be) SO SIMPLE now INCREDIBLY complicated

"If EA would make a video editor, it would be this."

January 19, 2016  |  By Matej Mijuskovic

2016-01-19 22:12:41  |  By Matej Mijuskovic

 |  Version: VideoPad Masters Edition 4.21

Pros

There are separate tracks for the music and the video, which every basic video editor should have.

Cons

These guys are capitalist fat bastards that like to roll around in money. I thought this was a free editor that lacked some advanced features. I didn't expect exporting the video was an advanced feature. So I worked my ass off to do a long video, and then it wanted me to buy the piece of ****, when I could just as well use movie maker.

 |  Version: VideoPad Masters Edition 4.21

Pros

Easy sequencing. Easy splitting where You want it. Easy audio adaption and adding

Cons

Sequences cannot be reorganized or shuffled when first arranged.
Themes not allways loaded properly..

Summary

All in all the best and easiest video editor I have used and really worked with.
Use the best part of an afternoon, and You are fit to go on creating Your videos.
PS: I'm no expert at all, but this software makes it look like I am :-)

"Great with "home use" that doesn´t leave watermark!"

December 26, 2015

2015-12-26 07:13:08

 |  Version: VideoPad Masters Edition 4.21

Pros

- easy cutting and producing sequences that can be saved seperatley
- great variety of encoding options
- extremely easy to handle even for "first-time users"
- no watermark in the "free version"

Cons

- sometimes instability and crashing (rare)
- happened that suddenly sound was missing after 2mins video (rare)
- little options for fade and effects

Summary

I really recommend this program because for home use it has really everything (and more) you need. It is easy to understand and once you make your first video you pretty much have ability to make something bit more complex. The variety of fades and Effects is very small (in home use!) but ok ... fair enough for open source! In general I am very satisfied with NCH Soft!
