    In my opinion, the support team could be a bit easier to reach.

    While it'd be nice if installation was faster, the process itself is really simple.

    On the one hand, the team members seem like they're trying really hard, but on the other hand, I'm just not convinced they know what they need to.

    Pretty decent value for the money, with some room for improvement.

    I don't think all beginners will get the hang of the program right away.

    The price is fair considering the amount of options and extra features available.

    While it does take a certain amount of time to learn how to use, the software can definitely be used by non-experts.

    Sure, the video editing software could be a bit cheaper, but it's not too expensive either.

    Loren

    Most features are pretty easy for beginners to use, but that doesn't apply to all the features available.

    Jacob

    The software has enough extra features.

    Oliver
    03/11/2020

    Apart from one or two additional features, I'm really satisfied with the software's range of extra features.

    It's got a couple of extra features... not more than that, though.

Importfunctions

The VideoPad software can capture videos from various devices, including camcorders, VHS recorders, webcams, and GoPro cameras, or import existing media files. It supports videos in all major formats, such as AVI, DIVX, MOV, MP4, MPEG, and WMV. Audio files in the standard formats MP3, WAV, AAC, or OGG are also easy to import. Additionally, the VideoPad video editor supports the major image formats GIF, JPG, BMP, PNG, and TIF. Locally stored media files can be imported into the clearly arranged user interface in just a few clicks and comfortably edited there.

 

The German user interface features an intuitive design. The menus and functions are self-explanatory and can be operated without a learning period. With the push of a button, users can record new videos from their webcam, import media files from connected devices, and then edit these within the software. They can also easily take, modify, and export screenshots with the video editor. All media files are located in the top left area. The programme automatically categorises them into video, audio, and image files.

Video Editing

With VideoPad, users can cut, edit, extend, or compile their films. The editing programme provides its users with a huge selection of video editing functions. Still, the software is neither overloaded nor cluttered. To remove uninteresting sections from films, all users need to do is drag the blue and red clips to the desired position in the clip preview and thereby set the beginning and end. By clicking on “Share clip”, they can easily turn larger videos into smaller films by placing the red cursor and clicking on the scissor symbol. Individual sections of larger films can be extracted as independent clips without great effort.

The media files can be viewed in timeline or story mode and modified in just a few clicks. Thanks to the intuitive control elements, cutting and editing is even easy for beginners. Users can view the changes at any time in the preview window. They can also record, edit, and modify music and audio recordings with the VideoPad video editor. This means that no additional software is required to record commentary or sound effects. With the practical “text-to-speech function”, the software will read written words out loud.

Effects

Users have access to a huge selection of templates, screens, transitions, sounds, and cinema-ready special effects. They can cut their films and remove an undesirable background, rotate their clips, zoom into them, and individually adapt colours and temperatures. Thanks to more than 50 effects, such as sepia or black-and-white, it is possible to create an old movie, for example, with just a few clicks. The video can be played in slow motion, sped up, or in reverse. Due to the integrated improvement function, shaky shots and other issues can be fixed at the push of a button.

With the VideoPad video editor, users can add transitions and overlays or carry out a stereoscopic conversion. They can integrate texts and captions into the videos in just a few clicks, and thanks to the chroma key green screen, produce impressive films. Numerous templates help create appealing animations within seconds. Various audio effects, music, and sounds can be imported and mixed. Users can generate entire sequences using digital images or photos. At the touch of a button, they can record their own commentary or create animated GIFs. The possibilities are almost endless.

Export-Functions

Recorded and edited videos can be saved in various formats with the VideoPad video editor and exported for different uses. Among others, the software supports the formats WMV, AVI, MP4, MPG, and MKV. Thanks to the many different export possibilities, the edited videos can be played directly on an iPad, on a PSP, on various gaming consoles, or on mobiles. It just takes a few clicks for users to create CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays, and HD DVDs. The videos can be saved in many different resolutions, including full HD, 2K, and 4K. The NCH Software video editor also allows for the creation of impressive 360-degree films.

Features

The video editing software can be installed and used on newer and older computers. VideoPad even runs on Windows XP and Vista. In addition, a version for Macintosh computers, mobile apps for Android and iOS devices, and a special version for Amazon Kindle are available. Users who want to share their videos with others will appreciate an especially handy function: without any additional tools, they can upload their created films onto the online platforms YouTube, Facebook, and Flickr. If users save their login data, they can share their films in just a few clicks.

Thanks to the German programme interface, the clearly arranged menus, and easily understandable functions, VideoPad is even suitable for beginners. Despite the huge range of features, users can learn how to operate the software within minutes. On the German NCH Software website, users can find plenty of helpful information, manuals, and instructions. If they have questions or problems, users can contact technical support through an online contact form.

PlugIns

The range of functions of the VideoPad software can certainly compete with rival software. If needed, the range can even be further extended. Thanks to the integrated plug-in-support, users can take advantage of additional tools and a large number of impressive effects without great effort. Among others, VirtualDub plug-ins and effects can be downloaded from the internet. Via the VideoPad menu, users can add or remove new effects such as cartoon rendering, deinterlacing, and logo removal.

Summary

VideoPad is one of the best and most popular NCH Software programmes for good reason. Downloadable at no cost, the video editor can certainly compete with the video editing software from well-known companies and offers convincing features such as an extensive range of functions and intuitive operation. Users can record or import videos, individually edit media files, export films in different formats, and publish them online. VideoPad might not be the biggest name, but it impresses with its varied functions and possibilities. The home edition is available at the affordable price of 35 euros, the professional master’s edition costs 60 euros. At a more than fair price, buyers receive an extensively equipped, easily usable, and powerful video editing programme.
