    "Very Disappointed"

    January 26, 2015  |   By Hemodynamic

    Version: CyberLink PowerDirector 13

    Pros

    Cost. Slide shows

    Cons

    Regarding Video making all my computer has done is stall and create saccadic playbacks with every video I have made if I add any changes to the original video (time lapse, reverse, rotate )
    I searched multiple forums and there are a lot of people having problems.
    I recently purchased Adobe cloud and downloaded Adobe Premier Pro CC and have had no problems what so ever on the same computer.
    Intel Core 2 Duo ProV 2.66 Ghz, Windows 7 65 bit Pro, 8 GB 800 Mhz Ram, NVidia 2GB GT 610, 150 GB HDD (7500 rpm).

    Summary

    Don't believe the hype! PowerDirector is a dog and very frustrating for video editing.
    If you don't want to be frustrated with making video productions, even small home type stuff then get the Creative cloud and download Premier Pro. It's totally worth it!

    "Does not cut the mustard.... (Not recommended)"

    January 17, 2015  |   By love2succeed

    Version: CyberLink PowerDirector 13

    Pros

    The pros are... I am using a real tool now - Adobe.

    Cons

    Waste of money. Performance is poor. Not built smart nor intuitive - still hanging on to old technology. The documentation was unintelligent - try following the steps. For example, in order to do Noise reduction - Cyberlink tells you to click the "noise reduction" (makes sense). However they leave out major details like...the noise reduction option is under the menu "Restore" Typically users are in the edit mode... meanwhile you are searching all over the screen for the "noise reduction button." You go to help ? button within their application... try clicking on the help links... and wha-la - that's broken also. And I should not use "Customer Service" in the same sentence with Cyberlink...

    Summary

    This tool is not for people who are serious about doing "nice" video editing and /or audio. If you have time to burn with a system that hangs - then so be it.

    I am not interested in buying Cyberlink's products ever again. I am prefer Adobe's products, Final Cut. or a "real video editing software."
