CyberLink PowerDirector is a complete video editor with which you can create colorful video presentations, mixing all sorts of multimedia elements: videos, images, transition effects, clipart, text layers and, of course, a custom background soundtrack.
The interface in CyberLink PowerDirector is divided into four main tabs (Capture, Edit, Produce and Create Disc), all of them pretty self-explanatory. As for the Edit part in CyberLink PowerDirector – the most complex one – it features the standard design in video editing tools, with a library window to browse your media collection, a timeline to drag and drop elements and a preview window to check what your creation looks like when you put all the elements together.
CyberLink PowerDirector includes all the necessary tools for the whole creative process, from assisting you in with the very first step (capturing video from several different sources) to adding the final touches to your creation, such as a totally customizable DVD-style menu.
When you're done, CyberLink PowerDirector lets you save your video on your hard drive in different formats, publish it to YouTube straight away, share it on Facebook or output it to a camcorder.
Most recently, CyberLink PowerDirector has been updated to include ways to share your creations via DirectorZone and 3D editing tools to create stunning 3D movies.
With CyberLink PowerDirector you can easily create multimedia presentations with video, photos and music.

When I started making videos I knew absolutely nothing about editing or editing software. What little I had seen up to that point was like looking at the flight panel of the space shuttle. I never thought I'd ever be able to figure out how to use it. A friend recommended PowerDirector to me and with about 15 minutes of instruction I was able to make some simple edits. After that I found that just playing around with different things led to amazing results. I've been a convert to PowerDirector ever since and i highly recommend it to anyone that is just starting out. Don't get me wrong, it has enough advanced features that higher level users can benefit from it too.
great video editing software! easy UI with many effects! worth to try!
