Tried their Videopad - video editing software. On their website, Videopad is advertised like this: "This full featured, free video editor lets you create professional looking videos in just minutes." Ok. I found on some software review sites that Videopad is free for home use only. HOWEVER, after 3 exports, Videopad asks for a license! I tried to export parts of the video I was trying to edit because of some bugs with the zoom video effect. I was planning to import back those bits of the video for further editing. But after 3 exports, Videopad starts asking for a license. I could not even complete some simple tasks and Videopad is already asking me to buy it. It seems that was a sneaky trap. If I had a real finished project I wanted to export, I would have been forced to buy a license in order not to lose all the work. I hate dishonest companies that use all kinds of deceitful marketing tactics to get you hooked on their product. I notice that it's a trend for dishonest software companies NOT to warn upfront what exactly are the limitations of their "FREE" or "TRIAL" offers. They let you find out the hard way. Or they'll point you to some fine print or policy document... I was actually looking to BUY a video editor but before I do, show me that it is worth it. And one more thing. Don't you ever believe a software company that tells you they have a Money-Back Guarantee. This is yet another big fat lie with fine prints that will prevent you from getting a refund if you are not satisfied with that piece of software.

I tried the free-trial and found that you could not burn to DVD until paying for the program.
After many evaluations of other video editing software, I decided to buy NCH's VideoPad. Some bugs, no explanations under their support subjects page for questions on common features (such as music). (Figured it out through laborious trial and error.) But, worst of all is that after spending many hours editing a 40 minute home video, adding text-titles, a bit of music, reviewing and reviewing, I found out that you cannot Burn to a DVD so that the video can be played on a DVD or BluRay player and watched on a TV. Maybe it's a way to sell more product such as their converter or burner software.

I have been using this software for over 10 years. it is the easiest one for me to use and understand. I make what I call music for a Non profit Haunted House. I will say this though, I am trying to share what I have come up with so far to the president of the club on the Video Pad and it will not let me share it with them which is frustrating. I purchase all the software but this one isn't needed until I want to share it with them. Great Product!!!

After changing my PC, I was forced to buy upgrade to newer version of Videopad Editor. Since I help my autistic son making videos on Youtube, I gladly paid for this.
However trying different sizes of jpg-images and png-files for watermarks, the program fails to do justice and the images are forced to stay in the middle. I had success with 1 size image as watermark, but resizing that, you cant impossible see anything from that logo.
I contacted support many times and finally spend time doing screenshots - in the end a new "worker" took over and just send me the same link to their instructions from youtube. With all my screenshot doing more than 100s videoes with watermarks, I know what I am doing. Also tried to reinstall a few times.
I will change to 4 stars since you have the right intentions. You might be unlucky that the "watermark issue" only applies to some computer systems or maybe I used the wrong sequence from the newer version causing the format to change somehow. I will try to get the old version to solve the issue.

I have purchased 3 copies of “Express Rip CD Ripping Sofware” and I have used it daily for over a year to rip my collection of CD’s (5000+ CD’s). The software would get a 5 for everything except its ability to identify the correct CD. I have tried both options: “FreeDB Server” is correct maybe 70% of the time (I’m being generous) and “Misicbranz” does not respond at all with any info, just a dialog box saying it could not contact “Musicbranz”. I guess that’s a glitch, since all my copies do the same thing with “Musicbranz”.
As a result, I have been forced to buy Roxio’s products as well as theirs to complete my task. Roxio can identify the correct disc around 90% of the time.
I wish they would use better ID services so I could use their products exclusively in the future. I prefer the speed and the extra data your product provides (very important) but I can only use it 70% of the time. I only have around 1000 CD’s to go and I have seen no updates to their product that I can download to fix the problem, so I can only give you 3 stars on the overall evaluation of “Express Rip” software.

Have been using their invoicing program since 2012. The program works well but their customer service is horrible. Apparently if you switch computers and try to download the program on your new computer and you're registration code is older than 2015 your s*** out of luck. Tried to work with their customer service online and they're only response was I needed a receipt for my purchase in 2012 in order for them to not charge me for a new program. I also provided them the email I used to purchase the program which they said was required to get the registration code back but they told me they had no record of my email. I would have never re-bought the program but all my information was locked out and I needed to do my billing for the next month.

I used NCH screen Recorder Debut. Its output is the best comparing to other recording softwares. Its memory consumption(ram) is low while capturing and encoding compatibility is very good too. So I would recommend to others to use it.It has all the features which we need in screen recording. One thing I would recommend to
developers to add time bar during screen recording.

Wasted a lot of time trying to get a 9 split video to work in NCH Videopad Editor, but it is clear to me now that
(1) the product has inefficient code, eating both CPU and RAM while others need a fraction to do the same kind of work
(2) the product has bugs, making some video streams pause while exporting the video
(3) the product crashed several times and the only way I could test it was to install it on a second computer where I was allowed to export the video one time before hitting the end of the demo.
It is clear that NCH wants us to be forced into buying this crap before we can properly test it out. To not have at least 24 hours to try the program out and find out about all the bugs, crashes and missing features puts them to shame. Sorry, but you will not get my money. Avidemux actually does a better job, even if it lacks even more features - it works.
Even tried on a third computer and with only 4 way split video instead of 9 way split video. Even this did not work and the exported video freeze after a few minutes, showing the exact same frame for the rest of the video length. NCH Videopad has gotten the chance, and showed what a failure this software is. Do not waste your time - it is not worth it.

This software company is the worst company I have ever had experience with. They charged me falsely over £200. Then failed to communicate and refund fully. I would never use them again. The software itself was okay but not brilliant. After this horrible experience I find it difficult to say anything positive about this company.

This program is very intuitive and easy to use. No watermarks or other annoying things, just a single pop-up when you close the program asking you to rate it like this and a suggestion to buy the upgraded version.

easy to use and when I lost Videopad Video Editor due to a Windows reset all I had to do was go to support and click the send registration email used for product purchase and I had my licensed version back within a minute. It also helped me make backup by using a CD/DVD burner application. Flawless operation. Well worth the money spent
