CyberLink goes ahead and beyond what is required of such a program and offers users an online community called DirectorZone. With that, you can download oodles of additional effects, transitions, menus and access tutorials on producing stunning video presentations.
A review of PowerDirector wouldn't be complete without mentioning the 3D aspect of video editing which CyberLink has integrated into this wonderful program. With the growth in 3D movies, players and television sets, 3D video has been making its mark. With the introduction of 3D video on mobile phones, the trend is growing even faster and that's where the competition of PowerDirector fall behind. It fully supports conversion between 2D and 3D formats and provides users with great 3D effects.
Without futher mention of the cool video effects you can create, PowerDirector also provides some very professional audio effects including the Audio Beat Marker which can find points in the audio track where beats occur, perfect for synchornizing audio and video effects.
