"CRASHES CONSTANTLY"

July 11, 2011  |  By Calchick7

 |  Version: CyberLink PowerDirector 9.0

Pros

If you can keep it from crashing it has good features and was fairly easy to use.

Cons

CRASHES probably 9 out of 10 times I try to use it. This happens either right away, or after I have been editing for along time, then poof -my work is lost. Use Windows Live Movie Maker to be able to save my movies to DVD

Summary

Don't waste your money. I have a brand new computer 1.5 TB and 8GB RAM AMD Radeon HD 6570 with a ton of dedicated graphics- and tried using PD8 again in the new computer, STILL CRASHES!

"great software if you never need customer service"

May 29, 2011  |  By bmons

 |  Version: CyberLink PowerDirector 9.0

Pros

good tools, fairly intuitive layout. many template options

Cons

absolutely NO customer service available and you have to pay additional $$$ to talk to someone to get a questions turn around under 24 hours.

Summary

I purchased Powerdirector 9 for a work porject, and also purchased the "multiple downloads for 2 years option" incase my program ever got corrupted or lost. it worked well but then my computer crashed-- I thought no big deal I have the multiple downloads. Well, no so. I could not find any possible place to use my multiple downloads and get another copy downloaded. I could only find a 30 day free trial download. I tired contacting customer service and found that the only way to contact them was via email unless you want to pay an additional $20 for 1 year of customer support. Email worked fine initially because I was just looking to be directed to a websiter for a download, but then that download wouldn't work. Now remember every time you attempt to ask a questoin it takes 24 hours to get a response and your explainations are limited to typing and trying to explain yourself over email. As you can expect the answers show little sign of understanding my issues. needless to say it is a week now that I have been working through this problem and I am no where closer to solving this issue than I was a week ago.

Bottom line, I believe power director is a good product when it works, but if you need any customer service it is not there. There are plenty of good video editiog software programs out there that will support their product, and lets be honest, video editing software has more than it's fair share of glitches that you need help with. I would recommend oine of them and avoid cyberlink products all together. that is unless you dont mind paying an extra $20 to resolve issues you WILL have.

"GOOD PROGRAM BUT NOT GREAT"

May 19, 2011  |  By mjraines

 |  Version: CyberLink PowerDirector 9.0

Pros

Simple process to import videos, good transitions, downloads of titles etc. is a plus. Uploads to youtube is a simple process.

Cons

Does not handle VOB files well. Frame by frame control makes you work.

Summary

Good program if you don't import/use VOB files
