CyberLink PowerDirector is a complete video editing suite with which you can create professional looking videos by mixing all sorts of multimedia elements including videos, images, transition effects, clipart, text layers all with a custom background soundtrack.

Powerful but easy to use editing suite

CyberLink PowerDirector claims to be the fastest video editor around and while this is a bold claim, it does have a simplified, streamlined editing workflow which makes creating quality videos surprisingly easy. There are many templates to choose from which do much of the hard work and the rest is just a case of dragging and dropping footage as you please. It also includes a 3D Theme Designer that allows you to create 3D themes for your videos although some of these do look a bit cheap.

Other than that, CyberLink PowerDirector includes all of the necessary tools to get creative with your videos, from assisting you in with the very first step (capturing video from several different sources) to adding the final touches to your creation via a customizable DVD-style menu.

When you're done, CyberLink PowerDirector lets you save your video on your hard drive in different formats, publish it to YouTube, share it on Facebook or output it to a camcorder.

Most recently, CyberLink PowerDirector has been updated with enhanced 3D features and includes new ways to share creations with other Cyberlink users via Cyberlink's DirectorZone plus a few new 3D editing tools to complement to the 3D Theme Designer. If you want more effects, you can also download them from DirectorZone.

Drag and drop video timeline interface

The interface in CyberLink PowerDirector is divided into four main tabs (Capture, Edit, Produce and Create Disc), all of them pretty self-explanatory. The layout is that of a standard video editor with raw footage divided from the editing timeline below.

The editor in CyberLink PowerDirector includes all the essential video editing tools, with a library window to browse your media collection, a timeline to drag and drop elements and a preview window to check what your creation looks like when you put all the elements together.

The Theme Creator uses a wizard style system to help you create your own theme and is easy to follow although the results can look quite cheap.

A solid multimedia presentation suite

With CyberLink PowerDirector you can easily create multimedia presentations with video, photos and music. Whatever your presentation needs, Cyberlink PowerDirector is an excellent choice.

FAST & FLEXIBLE Video Editing

PowerDirector Ultra is an unbelievably fast and flexible video solution, offering a unique combination of high-end performance and advanced editing features. Its intuitive interface makes it accessible to creators of all skill levels, from beginners to experts. A huge selection of customizable design tools, including unique alpha transitions, animated titles, particles and PiP objects, give you the freedom to explore your creativity and reflect it in your video creations.

Create with over 500 Professional Effects

New non-linear motion technology for PiP objects and titles lets you add hyper-realistic animations to your video projects, while a host of fresh fade-in and fade-out effects for the Title Room present exciting new creative options. Also brand new in PowerDirector 14 are 20 versatile alpha transitions that use a range of geometric shapes.

Action Camera Center

PowerDirector 14 introduces an all new Action Camera Center, which brings together all the ultra-powered features action enthusiasts need to create high impact videos—all in one place.

Stabilize shaky action video, correct fish-eye distortion, apply slow motion or freeze & zoom highlights to parts of your footage, and correct color problems from filming in snow or underwater, all in a single, intuitive module.

Motion Tracking NEW

Powerful new technology for motion tracking opens up great options to add new layers of creativity and sophistication to your projects. PowerDirector simplifies motion tracking from start to finish, enabling anyone to accurately track objects or people in video footage. Here are just a few examples of what can be accomplished with Motion Tracker:

TrueTheater® Video Stabilizer

PowerDirector Video Stabilizer function in the Action Camera center is ideal for use with videos taken without a tripod or recorded while moving. It removes the shakiness from footage on all axes, even shakiness caused by rotational movement of the camera.

100-Track Multicam Editing

Multicam editing is growing in popularity—editing video clips from different cameras into a single video is an effective way to add depth to a project by showing different perspectives.
