Pros: There appear to be a ton of additional stock intros and picture-in-picture objects that you can download. For basically half the price of Adobe Premiere Elements, it is definitely an alternative worth considering.
Cons: Why have I not heard of this before now?
I honestly hadn’t heard of PowerDirector until recently, but it has received all kinds of awards from PC Magazine, so I decided to give it a try. To start, PowerDirector has an “Easy Editor” mode that takes you to a wizard that walks you through a very basic video creation process. I went straight for the “Full-Featured Editor.”
There are more than enough features for improving video quality and colors. You also have effects you can apply, stock intros you can use, picture-in-picture objects you can insert, transitions you can apply between scenes, audio recording options, and an easy-to-use subtitle input area. It seems to be in line with the feature set of Adobe Premiere Elements, but I personally think this interface might be a little easier to use.
However, just like Adobe Premiere Elements, Cyberlink PowerDirector can’t work well with DVD files perfectly, How to solve it ?
To solve those problems, the quick workaround is to transcode DVD files to PowerDirector natively supported formats. Along with some help from third-party software like Dimo DVD Ripper.
With it, you can quickly capture DVD movies to PowerDirector fully compatible with mpeg-2 files without loss of quality. At the same time, this DVD application allows you to convert DVD files to Pinnacle Studio, Adobe Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas, Windows Movie Maker, Avid Studio, Magix Movie Edit Pro and other NLEs editable formats.
