VideoPad is a freeware version of a popular video editing suite perfect for beginners. With that said, it does include a lot of easy-to-use features and effects perfect for those starting out a career in video editing, whether it be for YouTube or creating personal DVD presentations for the family.
The program couldn't be easier if you look at competing products. VideoPad Free Version includes support for some of the most popular video compression formats and can create some cool looking end videos with the excellent effects and transitions included.
The overall layout of VideoPad looks rather professional and can be compared to some of the paid solutions out there for end users. Even if you are a professional, VideoPad might include some features you would find useful for quick edits.
Unfortunately, though, as a free version of a paid product, it has been stripped down quite a bit and the transition effects amount to 3 at writing this. The full version available from NCH might have more to offer if you're looking for a full video editing suite.
