I really needed an app that allowed me to cheaply edit screen casts to make them < 5 minutes to keep co-workers attention and share information with the rest of my team. This app is awesome, especially for being free! Yes, as far as paid apps go, for the full version, the UI and effects is lacking quite a bit, but for what you are getting for free this is awesome.
I was able to record a new screen cast using Quicktime built into OSX, edit it in VideoPad, and then export as a valid MP4 with H.264 encoding, all without needing any help, or reading documentation. H.264 is critical to me as all of my co-workers’ devices can play my short and sweet screen casts. To be fair, I am used to non-linear editors, such as AVS4YOU and Movavi, so this has a very standard interface that is easy to pick up for those with a little experience.
Bottom Line: I have not found a better non-linear video editor for free such as this tool and think the developer has done a great job in offering basic functionality, and then allowing more advanced functionality to be purchased in the future. Very awesome, easy to share with co-workers without a PO.
