"The previous post is theatrical and in my opinion is also inaccurate." - It's clear that nicksson hasn't used this tool in anger as this software is a triumph of style over substance which is exemplified by the grandiose statement that "It comes with over $650 worth of premium effects and templates to enrich your video creation"; in whose opinion is that? And another wopper is "use magic tools in your production?". No! the real test of a decent video tool is that it produces good quality video which is compatible with the widest range of other vendor's software & this tool produces video which continually causes other packages to crash. You can't not use the internal codecs either - their mpeg2 encoder produced some really ugly interlace artifacts when resampling from HD to DVD. It really ought to be able to offer a frameserver or a vfw (or equivalent) plug-in interface for third party encoders.

Two positives about PowerDirector is the multicam tool (synchronising seperate audio & video clips from the same scene) and that it is the only tool I found that at a reasonable price point that can author valid AVCHD-DVD discs.

So if you are not too fussed about overall quality & high bit rates this tool may suite you as a one stop package.

The previous post is theatrical and in my opinion is also inaccurate. Cyberlink PD is a very easy to use software and without exaggerated needs. Of course, if you have a wood PC then for you PD will be for sure a CPU and RAM killer. Although PD is considered a "consumer" or a "prosumer" soft, you can do easily a lot of things, you have a lot of effects, transitions, tools, enchancements - right out of the box, and the final quality is very good for home-made videos. Yes, it have also a lot of issues and frecvently crashes for various reasons, but it is the best and most complete package in its price range and target. I have tryed not only PD from 10 to 13, but also many other video editors, inclusive Adobe and Sony products, but for my comfort and because of the multitude of EASY to use tools I constantly returned to PD.
So, if you are not satisfyed with PD, dont buy it, but for me definitively does WORTH to try and use it.

After last probes seems that a little more encoding speed (50% increase) and more time (lenght) of encoded video (20% more lenght) upon the CyberLink freez.
Solution execute:
1.presentation font cahe (wpf 3.0 also know as PresentationFontCahe.exe as is apear in task manager)from services (where apear like Windows Presentation Font Cache 3.0.0.0),
2.change logon account of Cyberlink RichVide Service (CVBS)from System to LocalService (also from Services of ControlPanel-Performance and Maintenance-Administrative Tools in XP

I have tried so many video editing/DVD production programs, I was ready to give up many times.
After reading reviews on several suites, I decided to try PowerDirector 13. I am impressed.

I finally was able to actually produce a movie of our senior center stage performances, with a menu that actually worked, and played straight through on my DVD player without skipping, hanging, or otherwise being a non-functional PITA. I have never been able to do that before because so many other program directions are convoluted, or non-existent. I have a lot of learning to do, but Cyberlink provides great tutorials to help you get going.

Thank you Cyberlink. You saved my sanity.

This is, overall, a very decent application. There are, however, several limitations you may want to be aware of before you buy it.

It is true that you can modify and add things to their basic template. You can even download templates that others have created. However, you are required to include the following items in every DVD/Blu-Ray project:

Main Menu
- My Videos label (which you can change to say anything, but you cannot remove)
- Play button (you can link this to any video and rename it, but you cannot remove or hide it)
- Scenes/Chapters button (you can link this to submenus and rename it, but you cannot remove or hide it)
- Subtitle button (this is linked to the pre-defined Subtitle menu. you can rename it but you can't remove or hide it)
- for the scene/chapter pages, you can set the number of buttons to be 1 or higher, but you must have at least 1 scene menu page with at least 1 scene.

In other words, if you want to have a single film with no chapters and no subtitle page, you cannot do it with this software. That's a real pain in the ass.

On the upside, you can create a full film including subtitles. And while you can force the subtitles to always be on, you cannot set those subtitles to be on by default while still allowing someone to turn them off.

Hope this helps you choose the right product.

This is the only editing software I've found that supports smart-rendering for AVCHD files. It's been phenomenal for my needs. I was able to take a small test file (720p/60 w/5.1 AC3), cut/trim, add a fade-in, and produce a 4-minute output file in less than one minute.

Everything else I tried forced me to re-render the entire file, take anywhere from 10-45 minutes, depending on the software, and none could match quality and size of the original source.

I cannot recommend this highly enough. Give it a shot.

A decent software program when it works, has some bugs and can be unstable at times. It WILL not auto download and install templates. It hangs and will screw up the application when you have to end task it and start over. If you need a new template, download and install it manually! Also, don't expect any help from these guys, you are on your own...

I do have a gripe ... the working resolution ... I use a Sony HDTV and my resolution is ... 1280 x 720 ... I have to change my resolution to 1024 x 768 ... to use it ... what was round is not round in that resolution.

I keep ... QuickResNT ... running in the background ... not hard to change resolutions but I really wish I could use PowerDirector 8 with the resolution ... 1280 x 720.

This software is NON-FUNCTIONAL, since it is unable to produce any output without crashing. I was never able to produce a blu-ray disk or produce any finished project file, because it crashed. The only thing it can do is crash. It runs for 5 minutes and then crashes. There is no free phone tech support, so I tried using the web-based support. Nothing got fixed. AVOID THIS SOFTWARE LIKE THE PLAGUE IT IS.

I read about all the crashes users experience, and customer support not responding, here is my experience:
I received Power Director with my JVC HDcamcorder, ithin a few days I figured out it wasn't a full working version, burning DVDs was impossible. I decided to upgrade via download. The program kept crashing every few minutes, my auto-saved project simpkly disappeared and the BAK file was unusable.
I contacted customer support (you have to register and be a member, which is free) and although it was weekend, I received a response.
Here is what makes the software work:
1. You have to have the latest Version of DirectX, which should be 10, they suggest 9.0C.
2. Display should be set to 1024 x 768 and color 32 bit (mine is higher and it is ok).
3. Increase virtual memory: right klick on MyComputer, then properties, advanced, under virtual memory select custom, enter initial value as 512 and max value 1024. If your settings are higher, leave it that way.
4. Disable Antivirus software!!!!!! That seems to be the most important part.

I followed their advice, the program did not crash again.
Regarding the unsuable BAK file:
Rename BAK file in MPG file, open Power Director and import the file, if it doesn't work, you have to redo your project.

I have used it some, and it is better than I was expecting. I've used plenty other software that I just wanted to use to trim films. This does trimming and a lot more, and ealily. The only problem I've had is that it sometimes imports VOBs and chops them up into 30sec chunks AND puts them in reverse order!

While PowerDirector 5.0 is extremely easy to use for simple video creation, you have to squeeze your work in between crashes. In 20 years of installing and using all sorts of software, I have never run across such a temperamental program.

The program crashes when loading, crashes when adding files, crashes when cutting or splitting video, in short, you are always on the edge of your seat while using it. I took to saving my work after each change I made.

Lest you think this is a problem with my computer, I tried the program on 2 other computers with similiar results. Cyberlink sent me the CD just in case both of my 2 downloads were bad. (Of course, same results.)

In short, you take your chances with this product. Save your money and keep shopping.

Pinnacle - unstable. Vegas & Ulead - lack of functionality. But I love this particular program, but obviously, Cyberlink are NOT listening.

It crashes when you open your save file. When you try to burn the DVD, it has errors or either it wouldn't allow you to burn your dvd. Duh! That is why I bought the program in the first place - it is to burn the video onto the DVD, not keep it on the computer. Anyway, with the patches they recommended, it did not resolved any of the issues. I am guessing they saying the files are patches but it is not.!

Somebody in Cyberlink should be shot for using old DLLs. I saw 2 old DLLs in the program directory, comctl32.dll and msvcp60.dll. Try copying these 2 dlls from your Windows directory and paste them into the PowerDirector directory. After I pasted these 2 DLLs, the program could at least load nicely. Don't know about crashes at other places.

I am giving all scores 5 because I haven't played much with it yet. Just writing this reply in case anyone can't get it to run during startup.

I too have a problem. I purchased directly from them ver 5. Program starts ok, but as soon as I click on capture, it starts initializing then crashes. It gives me the same error message. I emailed tech support several times. I never even got an answer. I tried it on two different computers. Same result. There tech support section on there website is a joke. The FAQ is mostly about serial number installation and general installation. Very little, if none concerning crashes, bugs, etc. BTW, I did upgrade using the patch. Still no luck. I did search of other forums concerning this product and it seems many people have a problem with this program. I would stay away from it. There are many other programs that do the same thing and more. Wish I was aware before I bought it.

This is a very easy to use video editor, video converter and dvd authoring suite. It's ideal for put home digital video (DV etc) into DVDs for watching. You can do it all from this one app.

It's super easy to use compared to the other apps with only Ulead coming close. It comes with timeline editing, menus, dissolves, titles, audio etc etc and you can put together perfectly decent disks.

The DVD authoring part (EZ Producer) does a good but basic job of authoring DVDs and will convert most common formats for you. I not use this as my standard method of coverting TV series AVIs to DVD. I can just select say 4 AVI episodes, design a basic menu and click burn - it will do all the conversion and authoring for me and it's quick too. The results are just as good as using WinAVI + TMPG DVD Author and LOT quicker. It comes with DivX.

If you are a serious video nut then this won't be of interest but for most people just looking to do basic editing, format conversion and disk authoring.

An idiot can use it with no manual

I have had this program from V4.0 and each update gets buggier and crashes more frequntly than the last, after the latest update I have finally consigned it to the bin to say it is useless is an understatement, there is virtually nothing that this program will complete it crashes more frequntly than any other software I have tried, it manages about 3 to 4 mins into anything and away it goes.
The tech support whilst pleasant enough are a joke they can't resolve anything, if you like a challenge go ahead but like me if you expect the software to work as it should then do yourself a favour and stay away from this!!
