Editors' Review


NCH Software's VideoPad Video Editor Professional is a full-featured video-editing tool that is surprisingly easy to use. It can combine numerous clips and soundtracks in a wide range of video formats into movie projects, or build an entire production out of a single clip. It supports drag-and-drop editing, real-time effects previews, format conversion, importing and exporting files, captions, narration, and more. It can burn DVDs, HDs, and Blu-ray discs and output video to portable devices. It can also capture video from camcorders and other devices.

It's a rare video editor that you can just fire up and start making movies with, but that's what we did with VideoPad Pro. We browsed to a cartoon saved as an MPG file. VideoPad Pro scanned it and displayed it in the left half of the split main view, with its frames running sequentially along the bottom of a main preview window in a scrollable, time-marked view, and also displayed its information in the left-hand Media List panel. Pressing the Play button played the clip normally. Extracting clips from the main clip was incredibly simple; using the timeline, we selected an In Point and an Out Point and clicked the green down arrow. VideoPad extracted the clip and displayed it below in the Video Track section, which is just above the similar Audio Track. In this manner, we quickly cut up and rearranged the cartoon out of sequence, and then previewed it in the right-hand pane. The transitions between merged clips were seamless. We could save our finished clip or subject it to a wide range of processing and production tools. Toolbar icons let us quickly insert blank spaces or add narration, captions, and other effects. Clicking Build Movie called up a dialog that let us select the video format and whether to burn a disc, send it to a portable device, upload it to YouTube, and other choices.

With smartphones, video sharing sites, and Webcams everywhere, there's no lack of raw video resources, just a need for a powerful, easy-to-use tool like VideoPad Video Editor Professional to put your projects together, polish them up, and present them in the format of your choice. More than just fast and competent, though, we also found it fun to use.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of VideoPad Video Editor Professional 2.2.0. The trial version is limited to 14 days.

"Questionable Review Reliability"

September 15, 2013  |  By alurlyrx

 |  Version: VideoPad Video Editor Professional 3.10


It's a video editor.


The add-on prices are scary, especially the support costs. I wouldn't go near a product that charges for support for the first 30 days.


CNET reviews are questionable when the first three reviewers ratings are so far off from CNET. What is going on? I honestly don't trust CNET reviews anymore after trying this product.

"Worst software and customer support ever!!!"

August 29, 2013  |  By Namaste1234

 |  Version: VideoPad Video Editor Professional 3.10


It was able to edit multi channels of audio and video, until about three minunites in length... then it starts crashing


Totally sucks and crashes every minute. ZERO customer support after many a request. NEVER BUY THIS SOFTWARE!

"Might be good but undocumented"

August 28, 2013  |  By dsteiny100

 |  Version: VideoPad Video Editor Professional 3.10


I did have good luck turning a .mov file into mp4 and attaching an audio track to a video track.


The only documentation is a few videos that are poorly done. They do not tell, for instance, how to rearrange clips or obvious things but spend minutes on how to speed up and slow down the videos, something that is simple and obvious. There is little written documentation and it has no examples. I signed up for silver support hoping to get some answers to how to use it and was told I was on my own. The company itself is unprofessional. Not having documentation is pretty lame and charging for support and not giving it is lame as well. Think of what your time is worth and get something that is documented and has a user community that can help you.


The software is virtually undocumented and the support is terrible (I paid for both). For instance, after I paid for support I got a link to a chat box that required a password that was supposed to have come in the receipt but wasn't there. Think of what your time is worth and get something that is documented and has a user community that can help you. You won't really save money buying this software. The company is amateurish and the software is not ready for prime time.
