Software seemed fine, then I started to have problems with it freezing while trying to record. Could not close the program or stop the recording. Had to kill it under the task manager.
Tried using support. They are useless.
Suggested my computer was not spec'd high enough.
Its a gaming machine. Highest spec available.
They obviously have no idea how to read debug files or how to do faults.... numpties.



Review by Henri on May 23, 2018 Version: powerDirector 15 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 6/10 Overall: 2/10




"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.

Final Decision

CYBERLINK it is a CPU and RAM KILLER,
also i tried version from 8 to 13
uninstal this shet and reinstal OS

DONT USE DONT WORTH

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

speed up but still freeez
