VideoPad is a well designed video editor that puts powerful tools within reach of new users. If you’ve ever used Windows Movie Maker, you’ll get to grips with its settings in moments. Unlike some free video editing software, it won’t apply watermarks to your finished projects when you export them. However, still some users have Blu-ray and VideoPad editing issues like: Can’t load Blu-ray clips to VideoPad, the imported Blu-ray clips are not complete in VideoPad, etc. So, in this article, we’ll talk about how to import Blu-ray clips to VideoPad for editing. Read on for more details.
As most commercial Blu-ray discs are copy protected and encrypted, you can’t import the directly copied Blu-ray Video_TS folder to VideoPad. I suggest you remove Blu-ray copy protection and rip/convert Blu-ray video to VideoPad supported video formats via a third party Blu-ray ripping tool first.
The job can be done relatively easy with the help of Brorsoft Blu-ray Ripper (Win /Mac). With it, you can quickly and easily remove Blu-ray copy protection and rip/convert Blu-ray to VideoPad compatible DivX .avi (preferred) and other formats without losing quality. Besides, you can also convert Blu-ray to an edit-friendly format for Sony Movie Studio, Adobe Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas Pro, Edius Pro and more.
