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.

"Crashes and contained goonsearch spyware"

October 07, 2014  |  By donderutoo

Crashes often, fails to open large mp4


Their support is only good for one instance then you pay.
I believe they deliberately have lousy software so you have to phone and pay for support. Then when you do phone for support it is no good.

"This product is fantastic! Works for a professional!"

October 06, 2014  |  By Chris Wagoner

 |  Version: VideoPad Masters Edition 3.72


Save completed projects in many formats!
Able to edit sound in the video also!
Upload videos directly to YouTube or other services!
Has many transitions and formats already available (no additional cost)!
Fast rendering compared to others I have used many!


Not any I can think of..


I own and moderate the largest Military Videos channel on YouTube (US Military Videos & Photos) and have used this product through several versions including the current. I love it! I tried others but this one is very intuitive and I have had to use the help file only once or twice in the last few years. The program is very simple to use and turns out a great professional looking product.

The transitions are easy to use and look good. You can adjust them with ease. You can make your own opening clips and credits by a simple one click option and then edit them with ease. You can combine different types of media (videos, photos, and sound files!) And then create and save your productions in one of many formats!! It just so easy there is no need to tell you here. I use this program almost daily and it has never given me any problems.

If you need to edit video or audio, and want a easy to use, full featured editor that will give you the options you need then this is the one you need! I love it.
