Our Review:

VideoPad Video Editor is a non-linear video editing software, but its free version allows you to use it as a linear tool. That means you will be able to work with only one video track and one audio track at a time. The interface is clear and intuitive; there are built-in and pop-up suggestions on what to do next - helpful for a first-time user.

At a glance VideoPad has everything for basic video editing: video and audio effects, blending, color correction, transitions, tools for recording video, audio or capturing desktop. For export, there are three options: you can either upload video directly to social networks, record it to a DVD or save it on your computer in avi, wmv, mpg, 3gp, mp4 or mov formats.

Although installation process is fast and smooth, for some reason even a short video export takes untypically long time in comparison with other tools.

Hi. I used this and liked it! BUT.. after a short time, a matter of days, it reverted to the "trial ended". You can use it, but you can't export video. So, it wasn't worth $69 for the paid version. I gotta uninstall it. Too bad.
