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.


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.


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

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


- 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.


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.

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"

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.


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


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.)
