What does it include? 4 programs in one package; Power director (video editing), Color Director, Photo Director, and Audio Director. All 4 programs meet my particular needs in easily creating short video clips to share online (via social networking) and business outreach. I'm truly amazed how simple and easy this program is to use!
POWER DIRECTOR "intuitive movie making" makes the task of video creation a no brainer, even for beginners like me. There are tons of features built directly into the program that cuts down time considerably with having to use other photo editing programs (for static images). There's also a 360 degree video effect and vertical video for video shot on mobile phones, both super cool features that I have yet to try out.
COLOR DIRECTOR: Color Director is a color grading program that allows you to creatively edit your videos for mood or to correct lighting problems.
AUDIO DIRECTOR: Sound editing for your videos, this is a very simple program but completely adequate for most users unless you're seeking more tools for a more professional sound experience. It includes: noise reduction, hum & hiss removal, click and clipping removal.
PHOTO DIRECTOR: Not only can I correct my static images, I can also add some creativity to the mix, there are a number of tools to add effects, create layers, video to photo feature, create multi exposure photos, and more.
My first experience was with a video/still image compilation that spanned 3 minutes to show our organic farming operation (what we do & how) and I used Express Projects. It was my pickiness at perfection that slowed me down (edits are easy!), but I have a very professional looking video "calling card" to send out whenever needed.
The Express Projects task pane (accessed from the welcome screen) includes a 3 step process to create professional looking short videos; import your video from the power director, drag and drop the clips you want to include, then produce and share your project. Each step guides you through each step in the process. You can include video clips, images, effects, text, and sample audio clips. You can also preview your video. Text can be added over your video or images directly in the program with a number of font styles and sizes. YES! I can't believe what a nice mini movie I've made without the intimidation of a difficult program. I'm actually looking forward to creating more videos, I had a lot of fun doing the first one. I created a chicken shaped transition between images that I think will be our "signature", just by experimenting with the program. You can create custom transitions in addition to the more traditional ones we're all familiar with included in the program. I also plan on making some family videos including our travels and an upcoming wedding (as a gift to the bride and groom). What fun!
I found it super easy to upload this program (it's HUGE, you must have a good amount of space to accommodate it) and had no issues with my Win 10 system. I was up and running in no time, and couldn't wait to try it out. So far so good, I absolutely LOVE this program and will use it often. Cyberlink makes learning very easy, they have a youtube channel called CyberLinkChannel that includes webinar based training for the entire program and smaller training vids for specific tasks and features. If you're on the fence about purchasing, you can download a free trial to check it out and see if it works for you. Make certain you have plenty of hard drive space! I find this program to be super simple, fun, and easy to use for great videos/commercial projects. 5 stars. Highly recommended!
This is not something you are going to be able to pick up and be able to get the most out of it right away. The printed startup guide is minimal. Clicking on help will bring you to their website with 4 videos which will give you some idea of the capabilities of this program. To get the most out of you have to navigate the in-program help menu.
For instance when working with layers I was having a real hard time figuring out how to get the select tool to let me adjust the size of the working layer and move it. I had to unclick one of the boxes under the zoom icon to allow me to manipulate that layer. I'm sure that was buried in the directions but I love to dive right in (though that doesn't always serve me well.)
This program has an AMAZING background removing tool- I absolutely love it. It is easy to use and QUICK once you get the hang of it. It also lets you compare the original photo to the one you are working on which can help you decide what edits to make and keep.
There is also a gradient tool that will allow you to blend them together so you can have multiple areas of transitioning color.
However a big chunk of the tools are for editing people/faces. Since I am more interested in using this for family pictures some of those built in tools don't have a great deal of appeal to me beyond blemish removal tools. For those who are interested in that aspect they were all easy to use- you are easily able to adjust the brightness of a smile or eyes, increase the overall size of the eyes, slim down the jaw, easily adjust the skin tone, blending tools can help smooth fly away hair and make it look soft and romantic with a few clicks.
I can easily see the value of this program for a small business creating some marketing materials in house. If you are artistically inclined and have a vision this could be an inexpensive way to build your brand presence on social media or prepare posters, flyers, or other print materials.
The only reason I'd deducting a star is I've had a hard time learning how to navigate/save the product I'm working on. I'm sure it is just because I'm used to my old photo editing software but I'm finding that part quite frustrating.
Cyberlink Director was easy to install, first of all. I popped the cd in the drive and it started all on it's own. I installed everything and within about five minutes the programs were ready for me to use. I started out first working on editing a few photos that I needed to do for an upcoming video I am publishing. I found that it was easy to add and take out pictures from other pictures and changing the colors and making them look better, more polished.
I then had a few more videos to edit so I figured I would check out the video editing software. It works great! and so much better than the other program I have been using. It was simple to begin using and editing the videos don't take me as long as it did through the windows program. I could cut the videos, add music and other things with just a few clicks of the mouse and everything gets done just the way I want it. So much easier.
Everything just works so great alone and together in this suite. I am really liking it and I can't wait to discover more awesome things in this suite.
