1 out of 5 eggsHorrific Support

Pros: ZERO, Free software does a better job

Cons: Horrific

Cyberlink Power Director has an issue with older tapes the internal coding seems to detect static found on older media as copy protection and will abort the process, I sent an email to their support staff figured a simple patch or update would remedy the issue this is their reply
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cyberlink’s response
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thank you for contacting Cyberlink Technical Support.

I understand your concern related to copyright error when trying to capture home movies using Power Director 12 software.

I would like to inform you that with old tapes, this is a common issue of getting copyright protected error. This error occurs due to weak magnetic field on the VHS tapes.

Please note that this error generally occurs when the source tapes are very old or have physical errors on them. Please try and use a different (new) tapes and let us know if the issue persists.

I would suggest you to update capture card drivers and see if it helps in resolving the issue.

If issue persists then the problem is old VHS tape specific. In that case, you should use new tapes.

I have been an IT pro for 25 years, I am in customer service customers pay tens of thousands of dollars to call us when their systems go down, if I ever dismissed a customer’s issue in the manner Cyberlink dismissed mine I would be fired on the spot,
Can you even find new VHS tapes anymore? Does Cyberlink have a Time machine I can borrow to go back 20 years and reshoot my home movies? And how is updating my hardware drivers supposed to keep an Error in their software that they know about from happening again?

Other Thoughts: Would return this if I could it is a waste of money

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value

Pros: Will edit 4K and 2K using a proxy so older computers can be used. They use excellent codecs.

My computer is a 3 year old i7920, 12GB . yet no problems editing and burning. Now have my own Sony AX100 4K camera and no problems. Have used PD11 and 12.
It does an excellent job converting from 4K to 2K for burning etc.

Excellent product, have used or tested about 10 different editing programs, for the money this is the one.

Cons: Could have more transitions, customer service is poor but have an excellent forum that makes up for that..Using menus could be easier.

Other Thoughts: Have edited downloaded 4K video for a year, got my AX100 a month ago, jaw dropping video !

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Software

Pros: Powerdirector has almost anything you can find on other editing softwares, and more, but with an easy-to-learn interface. I love all the downloads available directly from other users through the program itself, it makes me feel alot safer about downloading new content.

Cons: I experienced a very rare bug that dropped quality of an importation, upon searching the internet for solutions, I decided to try and import the movie again, and bam! Problem solved. It appears this bug is very rare, as I only found one mention of it online, and I have only ever experienced it once.

Other Thoughts: Over all, this is a great program. I'm very, very happy with my purchase.

1 out of 5 eggsWould probably be great if i could even use it!

Pros: none

Cons: Every time I try to install it it always fails! I checked the requirements and i got everything I need to install this thing, but still nope! I've went to cyberlinks website to see if there was anything there to help. it said to delete some codecs and then download apple quick-time. i did that and still IT WONT WORK!!!! I give this item one star for making me waste my time and money and making me frustrated.
