Editors' Review

PowerProducer 6 takes advantage of Cyberlink's video heritage to help you create differentiated disc creations of your videos, photos, or a mix of the two. Editing is also enhanced by some good tools and a number of templates that will help you arrive at an overall attractive result.

Pros

Good guidance through creation stages: Cyberlink PowerProducer 6 targets home video users who wish to be well guided through the whole process of creating a presentation. We found all steps very pleasurable to follow, and the end results were above what most home users would manage in a manual environment.

Photo and video editing tools: You can enhance photos with all the auto and manual adjustments you would expect from a basic photo editor. For video, the addition of subtitles, screen text, and dialog balloons are all nice touches that have been introduced in this version.

Cons

Transition and video enhancement limitations: Once you choose a template, no further changes to the general format can be made. We found clip editing much in line with that of a dedicated video editor but without any tools for quality enhancements.

Few templates: We are talking about a single-digit number of readily available templates. This surely does not go down well for a $49.99 package.

Deluxe vs Ultra version: Once you decide to go for the paid version, you will find that the deluxe version does not support H.264 video and Blu-ray discs -- you have to go all the way to the even more expensive Ultra version.

Bottom Line

CyberLink PowerProducer 6 aspires to take the strain from the creation of quality home videos, but is not very well rounded in all areas. While sufficiently strong for photo editing, it fails to bring any quality enhancements to video content. As to templates, they are both a blessing and a limitation. All things considered, if you want to put together some video clips quickly without too much hassle, this app will do.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of CyberLink PowerProducer 6.
