CyberLink PowerDirector

I have to do some video work for a client so they sent me a new copy of CyberLink PowerDirector.  I started playing with it this morning, just trying to get used to the interface and nuances.

As a test video, I made this YouTube video.


This product is amazingly easy to use and offers a ton of production options, including directly uploading to YouTube, along with all the video metadata.  Very cool!

I don’t know if I would have spend the $90 for this since I don’t do much video work, but no that I have it I can’t imagine using MovieMaker again.  PowerDirector offers so many more options and it is fast compared to MovieMaker.  It seems to encode video at least 2x faster.

If you need more than casual video editing capability this is a fine product for the price.
