Videopad performance

Gilberto Rivelino

Recommended Posts


This is what i have as my Lap top features. 


Processor: 1.5 GHZ

Memory : 4GB RAM

Storage :  more than 30GB available.

Software is too slow when saving and reproducing final video. AUDIO FREEZES, VIDEO FREEZES.

And it takes too much time to saving and exporting the final VIDEO after making all the proper changes?

¿ Any advise about how to improve  VIDEO PAD PERFORMANCE ( PAID VERSION )  ?

Thank you in advance!

Video editing is resource intensive.  That's not to say that simple VP projects won't succeed on your PC.  But, yes, this can be slow and error prone.

Close all other programs and apps when editing.  Be sure that your video driver and Direct-X are up-to-date...  https://www.nch.com.au/kb/10265.html

Plan minimal effects, transitions, sequences and tracks, and load only those files/clips that are to be used in the project.

Convert source files to lower resolution.  https://www.nchsoftware.com/prism/index.html

Export at a lower resolution.

  • borate changed the title to Videopad performance
  • 3 weeks later...

I already changed file sizes to a lower resolution using:  https://www.nchsoftware.com/prism/index.html

* Prism Does not change the size too much, only a few MB.

* I updated AMD graphic drivers for WINDOWS.

* The format options on PRISM convertor are fine.

* Im speeding up x 10 000  every video im placing on the project (40 videos - 10 minutes per video ), and adding an specific song.

* NCH SOFTWARE is still too slow when using it , and im not able to listen audio and reproducing a fluent video with an audio inserted. 

Any advice on this situation ? 

Thank you!

If clips are truly being sped up by 10,000 then that's heavy-duty work.  Pre-produce original (not low-res) clips, sped up individually.  Then export each.  Bring them back in as clips, then add your song.  That way, the clips will little tax your system. 

After completing several songs, exporting those then starting a new session containing only intermediate exports may be an option.   Whether this is a valid approach for you depends upon how you mate the song to the video and how you envision its final form.

In lieu of a single completed video, the project may have to be broken up into multiple exports, each containing several earlier exports of completed videos.

Videopad is rather slow for such a small package and is always recoding things in the background.

I think your computer would mostly benefit from some ssd storage.

Buy a cheap pci card plus a m.2 sdd and make sure videopad uses that storage for its cache files.

Thank you for the advice, I will buy it !
