I have been on the hunt for free video editing software for a while. I have tried all the usual suspects with none of them satisfying my need for a simple program that allows me to chop up video, mash together chopped up pieces and then save the video in a file format that makes sense.
I have tried to use Virtual Dub, to call it clunky would be gracious. The fact that I still can’t chop up multiple videos into multiple parts and then mix them back together again without an esoteric knowledge of this and a few other assisting software packages is unacceptable.
I have tried almost every free piece of software on Wikipedia’s List of Video Editing Software and at the time that I went through them I came up with nothing that would satisfy my simple requirement of chopping up videos and mixing the chopped up portions back together again simply and quickly via a nice gui.
Recently I stumbled across NCH Software’s Video Pad
This piece of software is amazing for a free product. If you were on the hunt for a free video editor that is actually usable and can still be found then I highly recommend Video pad to you. While your at it check out NCH’s other software. These people crank out some very interesting software that I don’t see from anyone else on the market for the prices they offer it at.
