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.

"With no skills, Videopad empowers me to do awesome vids"

February 17, 2015  |  By voize

 |  Version: VideoPad Masters Edition 3.81

Pros

Once I got into the tools, it was incredibly easy to do incredibly much. The ability to create key frames for each effect for each clip or photo, combined with ability to add and blend layer upon layer of imagery, video, or sound with frame by frame control of how they interacted, makes it much more rich in features than what I first thought.
All this in a user interface so intuitive that I did not need to look at any instructions to do really cool and effect loaded videos (although the help files made me capable of even more!)

Cons

Honestly, the only cons I see is that it requires a pretty powerful processor and spacious RAM, and that once you get really hooked on the program it sucks having to pay (but that is just because I am a poor student)

Summary

Seriously, if you can pay and you love doing video editing, it is more than worth it!

"A nice step up from basic editors like WMM"

January 27, 2015  |  By kraftlos

 |  Version: VideoPad Masters Edition 3.81

Pros

Familiar interface, support for multiple audio tracks. Wide range of audio and video effects. Support for a wide range of formats.

Cons

Subtitles look really basic, timing is often ignored. Program often ignores timing for still images as well. Difficult to handle more than one video stream (ie A-Roll / B-Roll)

Summary

If you like Windows Movie Maker and want some more features, this is a good choice. It's not at all like the professional suites, but it's almost not nearly as expensive, and the free version isn't bad either.

Updated on Jan 27, 2015

Note that my review is for version 2.41. I've tried the interface in version 3.0 and above and can't stand it.

"the free version is great"

January 18, 2015  |  By GMS_Prime

 |  Version: VideoPad Masters Edition 3.81

Pros

it's intuitive, easy to use and runs nicely on my windows 7 PC. if you go into Control panel and uninstall/change and select the option to "roll-back to previous versions" it will remain free and fully usable. except you can't DL any new filters, but otherwise the program works great and you can export as many videos as you wish.

Cons

the new version is crap. the UI is terrible and not intuitive and it's laggy. also it's export video option expires after 4 uses. (see above for a fix)

Summary

an overall good program, but they need to retain the free version for those of us who don't want to or cannot afford to pay $40-$60 for the pro version.
