This review is from: CyberLink PowerDirector 9 Ultra 64


Simple/intuitive interface; impressive specs, loads of features that look good on paper. Free trial saved me $$.


Long on promise, short on delivery. Out of three attempts to render 20GB HD video, program froze at 5% every time. Pinnacle 15 HD, Corel Pro x3, Nero 10, & Adobe Elements Premiere 8 all handled the exact same sequence of video just fine, no glitches. Finished Blu-Ray discs all rock. PD9 rendered 5% & choked.

Other Thoughts:

Intel Core i7 940, 12MB Corsair Dominator, EVGA SLI x58, Radeon 5850, 2 WD Velociraptor 600GB RAID 0. 450GB available, Windows 7 x64 SP1.

Totally cleaned & defragged system prior to install: CCleaner, Glary Utilities, Norton Utilities, Smart Defrag 2. Yes, cleaned with three different products, defragged with one.

Norton Internet Security 2011 (should it matter?)

Also, bought a Pioneer Blu-Ray writer about a year ago that came with Cyberlink's BD Solutions: Power DVD 8, PowerDirector 7 & Power2Go 6.0. Couldn't even get the programs to install properly. Never loaded, never tried. Apparently my machine doesn't like Cyberlink's products.

In fairness to Cyberlink, its software that came with my JVC video camera back in 2006 worked flawlessly with standard video files & my AMD Athlon 64 X2 3200+ 939 & MSI K8T Neo-FSR, 2GB RAM setup. Perhaps Cyberlink prefers AMD?

Unfortunately, Power Director 9 doesn't play nice with my current Intel system. Perhaps you'll have better luck wi
