VideoPad Video Editorfor Windows



Your first steps as a video maker

If you express interest in video making and editing, but don’t know where to begin, VideoPad is the software you have been looking for.

Great content with little effort

VideoPad is a great place to start for all novice video makers.

VideoPad editor is one of the most user-friendly media editors in the market. This software is created for those who have little to no experience with editing. This is evident in the ‘Help’ section. This option gives you all the necessary information required to overcome an editing obstacle.

The interface takes the shape of a program that an experienced professional multimedia editor would use: a double built-in screen and separate timelines for video and audio.

The only thing you need to start experimenting with editing is a yearning to do so. All video effects in this software modify light, text snippets, and color. Three more transition options expand the scope of experimentation. The developers integrated multiple exporting options in this editing tool. This means that your content can interact with a large variety of other applications and platforms. You can share everything between Windows, MAC, iOS and Android devices.

You’ll quickly reach the ceiling of VideoPad’s potential. Professional designers and video makers alike might struggle to find use in this software. This software offers a limited variety of video effects. Because of that, your content can feel monotonous on occasions. The lack of video effects and finesses works just fine with beginners and those who edit and make videos as a hobby.

Where can you run this program?

VideoPad Video Editor runs on Windows XP and later. It is also available for macOS.

Is there a better alternative?

Yes. VideoPad is a tool for beginners. Once your editing skills surpass this software’s capabilities, download Adobe Premiere Pro or CyberLink PowerDirector.

Our take

This is a perfect tool for those who want to create and edit videos, but lack any previous experience. This software is a friendly and effective introduction to this world.

Should you download it?

Yes. With VideoPad you’ll take your first steps as a multimedia video editor. Experienced editors might find it a bit lacking, though.
