    Totally new to video editing

    I'm absolutely new to video editing & VideoPad Video Editor too. I found the understanding of the basics and principles obviously hard and really get the impression that the help tutorials are geared towards those who at least know something about the subject already. I'm thinking that it would of been great to have had a help section just for absolute beginners who know nothing about it all, with the basic essential concepts explained, and written in a way that an absolute beginner can understand. It would be a shame if absolute beginners were put off by how complex it can seem at 1st and never got to realize how great & powerful this piece of software really is. NONE of the tutorials I find online offer this simplicity. I'm Not stupid, hell, I take computer Viruses, worms, trojans, key loggers, and other back door crap off of peoples computers all the time!! I deal with people 24/7 (even in my off-time) getting crapware off their computers....and don't get a headache...lol. I get a freaking Migraine Headache trying to understand your software, even with your tutorials....WOW. There is Nothing in your tutorials geared toward the ABSOLUTE BEGINNER. <SIGH> I chase windmill blades around, and steer them around corners (120 to over 200 feet long). My dash cam records in 2 minute segments...minimum. All I want to do is edit and delete portions of the video where no turn is being done.....then repost them to my facebook page for other pilot cars, truck drivers and steerman to view. I've looked at other video editing software, and yours seems to be the easiest to learn, or so I thought. IF I can learn the free software program fairly easy and quick, I'm going to Buy the software. HELP Don
