Videopad Video Editor is a good video editing utility that falls between some of the low-end products and professional-grade programs that are on the market today. It is easy enough for beginners to use and enjoy, but it also has features and flexibility that may get the attention of professionals as well.

The trial version provides a free glimpse into what this program offers, and it offers quite a bit. Users can edit, splice and merge video clips, integrate and modify audio tracks and add a lot of different effects. The interface is similar to what is found in many other programs, and it is also rather intuitive. This means that getting oriented and started on a project won't require a lot of tutorials.

The software includes customizable transition effects, overlays, captioning, narration and voice-over recording along with a small sound effect library as well. It lacks some of the power and fine-tuning capabilities that are found in other titles that are geared for the true professional. However, it also offers a lot of features that are found in more expensive products, and this program is not very resource intensive. Audio, images and video files can be imported and manipulated with ease, and it is possible to mix music in addition to simply adding and editing basic audio tracks.

It comes with the capability to produce videos in a number of common formats, offers the option to upload to popular video sharing sites and gives users the standard control over output settings. HD capability is also available, but it takes a long time to process these types of videos. Users can also burn completed files to disk, and this includes Blu-ray and HD DVD formats.

The developers have even made a version that is designed for the Android operating system, but the true strength, flexibility and power of this program will truly be appreciated on a windows-based desktop or laptop computer. This is a payware program, and there are different pricing structures to choose from once the trial expires. This is a fantastic tool to use for almost any project, but prices could be a little bit more consistent.
