    Hey, everyone...

    Some of you may already be aware of this software but since it was new to me...and I've seen multiple posts over the past few months inquiring about free video rendering software...well, here's a great one:

    VideoPad

    I believe it's relatively new (it was first reviewed at the end of last year on CNET). I've been playing with the free version of this software for the past several months and I really can't say enough about it.

    It does everything you need it to do for most YT videos, it's intuitive - even for those completely new to editing/creating video and even in the free version, you can do some pretty impressive stuff. I'm not sure why I would buy this, to be honest. The free version seems to do everything I need it to do - no features are blocked that I can see, etc. But, I'm seriously considering looking into the paid version (if the free version does this much, I'd like to see what the paid one has to offer).

    General disclaimer - I have no affiliation with the software. Just posting it to help out my fellow BHW members. Enjoy! :D

    Would you say this is better than Camtasia Studio?
    Because I've been using that for so long and I love it, but it just doesn't give enough effects for the video.

    I agree, Cantasia studio seems pretty basic, actually. But I guess you don't need a ton of crazy transitions for your vids, though. It renders into HD nicely though.

    I think Camtasia supports direct upload, although I wouldn't want to use it.

    Camtasia seems to process longer videos (above 2 minutes) slow, even though I am stretching only a single image to the full length. I would be glad to find another tool that allowed me to use a single image as the full video and watermark the first half of it (e.g. the first minute). Does this program do it?

    Sorry for the slow reply! Got busy with Grammy video-makin' (using this very tool, actually)

    Thub15 put it best and I concur:

    My only issue with VideoPad would be the slow rendering for HD too. I think that this has more to do with your machine than either VideoPad or Camtasia, though. I have a pretty bad-ass processor on the desktop that I use for video production but it still can take up to an hour for an HD rendering. Depending on what you're doing, though, HD may not be needed. I recommend making HD videos whenever possible (they just look better and give your product a high-end image, in my opinion).

    Absolutely. Do make sure that you have plenty of space on your drives (or delete the videos once you upload them; depends on if you want to save them once you've uploaded to YT, Vimeo, etc) - the files, especially in HD, are understandably huge.

    The more I use VideoPad, the more I'm impressed. Their website kinda sucks, though. In fact, it's a good study for all of us Internet Marketers. They do a terrible job of upselling. lol. I still can't understand how they benefit by giving this away for free. I keep waiting for some sort of 'catch' :D Well, good for us, I guess.

    Just an update to this thread for anyone browsing. After a few months - my trial seems to finally be expiring! The website for this software does a really poor job of explaining the trial terms, how long it lasts, etc. So, it appears to have lasted two months (?? that's a weird trial period - but anyway).

    So...it's not free forever. But, that having been said, I still highly recommend it. It's really great software. In fact, I'm going to go ahead and buy it when the trial runs out. It's only $70 and I'd say well worth it. I've used it non-stop since downloading the trial around the holidays.

    Enjoy!

    lol.. great marketing video, never seen phneibut promoted quite like that before.

    Tell me is this your "legal high" supplement you were referring to on your other thread??

    Been a Gaba / Phenibut user myself for a few yrs and yes it works, but trust me take 7X usual dose and its gets into the *friday dance pills* region, great sex that just goes on and on.. last long too but its very harsh on the stomach.

    Also I know Mike McCandless hes the owner of Primaforce, also owns Scivation and a couple of other bodybuilding brands, you can buy Phenibut wholesale for around $50 / KG, it retails for $20 - $25 / 100g = 500% markup.

    You should release your own phenibut range and package it differently and call it something more luscious, add in some b-vitamins and acai powder as it tastes freekin awful and sell 50g packs for $19.95.

    Trust me 50g would last a medium user over a month. Thats what I would do anyway.

    Indeed it is, 2 4 K. Going to send you a PM!

    We're marketing this in a number of different ways. The sexual stimulant is just one angle. So far...very good. And we're only a few months into it.

    More details in the PM!
