"Not for commercial use."

October 24, 2014  |  By SoNic 67

 |  Version: CyberLink PowerDirector 13.0

Pros

1. Plenty of features and effects for a home user.
2. Some level of GPU acceleration for effects and encoding (with some caveats).
3. Price.

Cons

1. GPU acceleration for nVidia is incompatible with newest drivers.
2. Licensing agreement states is not for commercial usage because licenses for the output video formats (MPEG2, MPEG4) are not included:

"Don't buy this product."

October 09, 2014  |  By tymothil

 |  Version: CyberLink PowerDirector 13.0

Pros

It's affordable. When you can get it working properly, it's occasionally useful.

Cons

Very glitchy UI. Counter-intuitive UI. Crashes often. Slow processing. Product crippling bugs in version 13. Support is not helpful, and expensive if you want to actually talk to someone.

Summary

was using PowerDirector 12, and upgraded to PowerDirector 13. It was a mistake. The program, in general, has always had a lack of polish, including redraw problems (where all the UI interface elements disappear after completing an action), counter-intuitive interface design, random crashes, and weird bugs (occasionally all transitions in a project will suddenly switch which element is A and which is B, and many others). Those are all still present; in fact, the UI has managed to take a step backwards, never remembering window positions and sizes, and the redraw is even worse than before. Now, however, there is a bug where any AVI file imported will rotate the image 90 degrees, while leaving the image frame not rotated, so everything looks like it was taken on a vertical camera phone, but is also rotated the wrong direction. Contacting support resulted in a series of form-letter responses with occasional bits of unhelpful advice. And to actually talk to a live human is 30 dollars for 2 months of phone support. No official response on their forum after multiple people posted about the bug over a few weeks. I strongly advise against purchasing this program.

"ALERT!! AVOID!! Installed a Browser Hijacker!!"

October 07, 2014  |  By donderutoo

 |  Version: CyberLink PowerDirector 13.0

Pros

Not much. I tried to create a picture show with music. Easily dragged over 8 pictures and added music, but couldn't figure out how to add more pics. Frustrated at the performance (slow!) and UI. Ended up starting a new project, but it choked on my 400+ pictures and took over 20 minutes to import them. Ended up not using what I tried to create as it took too long and I had to go.

Cons

It installed a browser hijacker that routes searches and your home page to a "trovi" (or something like that) site. PC slowed down tremendously, too. If you get this, anti-virus sw won't see it and Malwarebytes said they cleaned it, but didn't. Use the ad-blocker software, i.e. Superantispyware, adware, etc. and they will take care of it. You can also search on how to clean the trovi browser hijacker.

Summary

Slow sw package that installed a browser hijacker/virus. Wouldn't recommend
