This is a really nice program. I just did a video overlay with ease and the quality of the output is far better than MS Essential Encoder 4 Pro. However, I can see there is a slight learning curve to master all this program can do but it seems worthwhile to learn it. The only knock I have against NCH is the continual nagware messages but some go away permanently once you click them. Overall, its a keeper for me!

I'm having a real nightmare with videopad, I use to work with its older versions and I love it, but this late (v 4.00) is a real pain for me. The interface is unfriendly at most and is driving me crazy. My problem right now is the effect of cropping. I try to crop as ussual but then the program don't resize the portion croped, and then it let the rest in blanck. What can I do?

The authors apparently don't know that the resolution for PAL DVDs is 720x576 pixels - doesn't exactly fill me with confidence! (Although they do talk about 720x576 resolution in the on-line help!?!)

I use free (for non-commercial use) version, mainly for cleaning .ts videos recorded from DTV (removing ads, trimming unwanted parts at the beginning or at the end) and converting them to .mp4 720p. For this use, it replaces advantageously my previous tool (Sony's VEGAS 10) I couldnt re-install when I changed the OS.
I particularly appreciate the Quality setting (1 to 51) when converting videos. I only found this kind of adjustement on GOM Video Converter, so far.
Interface and handling are very good.
Conversion speed depends on video quality settings. With quality setting to 1 (best) an 1h48min movie was converted in 75min, with a resulting 20GB .mp4 file. With quality setting to 25, the same movie was converted in less than 30min, with a resulting 1GB .mp4 file.
I couldnt perceive a visual difference between the 2 resulting files.
Good tutorials and manual on NCH Software website

Best of the free video editing tools. Very easy to use editing interface. Allows you to split and combine files simply and naturally. Converts quickly and easily between formats. I've been looking for something like this for a long time.

Excellent software! I have been looking for something like this for ages. It works with the 1024x600 resolution on my Compaq Mini netbook. In fact, unlike some many tools I've tried, it works!
