CyberLink PowerDirector 10 Ultra video review



Read the full CyberLink PowerDirector 10 Ultra review

CyberLink took a technology lead with the last version of PowerDirector, which was the first consumer-grade video editing app to go 64-bit. The tenth incarnation doesn't have anything quite so groundbreaking to brag about, but it still has plenty of reasons to proffer as to why you should be considering it alongside Adobe Premiere Elements and Corel VideoStudio. Not only has the rendering engine been further improved, but there's also significant support for 3D.

>> maintain Full HD resolution in 3D, unlike the side-by-side alternative

Isn't it only Half SBS with this limitation, were as Full SBS is 3840x1080, so you get Full HD.

> Keithe6e:

I could well be wrong - but I think the review infers that JVC don't use the side-by-side system - and instead capture two separate, but Full HD frames (in a non-SBS format).

Yes I understand that part, but his sentence infers that SBS cannot handle Full HD.

I maybe didn't quote enough to make that obvious.
>>which is a shame as they maintain Full HD resolution in 3D, unlike the side-by-side alternative.

It's only Half SBS that can't handle Full HD resolution.

The JVC GS-TD1 will record either MVC or Half SBS. None of the current consumer-grade camcorders I've tested will do Full SBS, so it's a bit irrelevant to this discussion. They squeeze Half SBS into a single frame of Full HD AVCHD instead.

What Blessing PowerDirector 10 Ultra is. It is relatively simple (one can go from the now-excellent free Windows Live MovieMaker to PD 10 Ultra with few hiccups. Its edit/timeline function is well-integrated with its Disk Authoring (6 weeks ago I bought Corel Videostudio X4 Pro which wiped out hours of work every time ONe chapter point was removed shifted.
The only quibble is that in the Menu/Disk authoring stage objects are often seen as overlapping when it is not apparent where this is occurring - no more than 4 thumbnails per page (6 is possible but a lot of farting about). The Cyberling community templates are great but I wish Cyberlink had supplied more generic, customisable templates (e.g. 6 thumbs per page). Otherwise a blessed dream - and STABLE - after Videostudio X4 - Congratulations Corel
