Editors' Review

+

NCH's VideoPad Master's Edition 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.

"Great editing software, can't believe this is free"

October 26, 2016  |  By BattleLizzy

2016-10-26 18:04:26  |  By BattleLizzy

 |  Version: VideoPad Masters Edition 4.48

Pros

- Intuitive
- fast response time
- LOTS of features compared to other video editing software, like Windows Movie Maker
- No watermark on final output
- Free!

Cons

- so far I haven't found any. There are a few things that I'm not sure how to do yet, but I think that's because I haven't found out how to do it, not that the program can't do it. Overall, it seems really well thought out.

Summary

I'm using the free version. I've used this to cut together a short demo video and it worked great! Super fast, responsive, intuitive, lots of options and channels. Also not sooo heavily featured that it becomes overwhelming to use and learn. I'd say overall, it's great for someone between a pro and an amateur to use. Note, I do have experience using other video editing software and I found this easy to pick up, maybe partly because of my previous video editing experience.

Updated on Nov 3, 2016

Update:
I didn't realize I was only using the demo version of this product. Once the demo expires, you can not export your videos anymore. Wish I'd known that before spending so much time on a project. Boo. Would downgrade this if I could as the software never said anything about this initially.

"A great Win10 video editor with lots of features"

July 23, 2016  |  By lovedrdave

2016-07-23 17:50:51  |  By lovedrdave

 |  Version: VideoPad Masters Edition 4.48

Pros

I can import many different file types, and it's easy to export many different types too... or even export directly to YouTube and others. Plus, the titles and transitions make your videos look better.
You can also add audio tracks, rearrange tracks, add two video tracks on top of each other, and many more features.

Cons

None. It works fine in Windows 10, so I'm very happy!

Summary

A great piece of video software for a great price! (Note, I purchased the boxed version at a local retail store and it's well worth it.)

"Waste of Time and Money"

June 30, 2016  |  By mrlorin2019

2016-06-30 23:23:48  |  By mrlorin2019

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

It is fun to un install this product

Cons

Unintuitive, painful to learn and frustrating to use.
Exported video is corrupt and doesn't play properly using the Windows 10 Movies & TV App.

Summary

NCH software is a scam.

"Excellent!!"

Pros

Very good software!

Cons

The only problem is it generates some temp files during operation which software need to clean up before closing. As of now we would need to manually clean those files.

"Simple and easy to use video editor for begginers"

February 25, 2016  |  By Ethan Nguyen

2016-02-25 20:16:11  |  By Ethan Nguyen

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

I love how the main screen makes sense, and how you can put audio and video tracks on top of eachother easily. This really helps me because i am a youtuber and I have to edit my videos and stack all sorts of text and other weird stuff on top of a video.

Cons

One thing I think that could be improved it the size editing, sometimes when I try to resize something thats on the screen it starts derping, but that might just be me

Summary

Great product, could use a bit of touch up, but overall my favorite

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: Not Found

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: Not Found

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: Not Found

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!
