Allow me to show you a time period that is long gone. Think back to 2012 if you will; when Windows Movie Maker was on every windows computer, when amv videos were all over YouTube and were always set to songs like ‘everytime we touch’ by Peter Risavy, and when everyone thought the world was about ready to end. Those were the good days, far back in the past. Nowadays, video media has grown and people have begun to use it to entertain, educate, and comfort themselves for hours every day. With this boom in creative media by the likes of Game Theory, Pewdiepie, Thomas Sanders, and other creators, the need for a video editor is larger than ever. That’s where CyberLink PowerDirector comes into play.
This inventive, and rather cheap, video editing software was made by Taiwanese company, CyberLink, back in 2005. Currently the program is available for Windows versions 7, 8, and 10, with a recommendation for the 64-bit version. Not only that but you can also use it via iOS and Android, which makes editing on the go extremely easy. On top of that there are five different editions all for very different needs and wants. It is also available in multiple languages and in multiple different regions. This program also received the PC Editor’s Choice rating of 4.5/5, displaying just how wonderful the program truly is.
In terms of payment plans, there are five different plans that one can go with, two of which, PowerDirector Ultra and PowerDirector Ultimate, come with one flat payment. With Ultra it is a one-time payment of $99.99, and with Ultimate it is a one-time payment of $199.99. If those are a bit too pricy to afford all at once then there are three plans that can bill either annually or monthly, however it isn’t a pay-off plan so as long as you are using the service you will be making these payments.
To start there is PowerDirector 365, which is $51.99 every year and $19.99 every month. After that there is Director Suite 365, which is $96.99 for every year and $29.99 every month. Following that plan there is the final plan of PowerDirector 365 Business, which is $149.99 every year and $69.99 every month. As to be expected each of these plans have their own pros and cons. Some plans will work for some people, and others will work for others. Some people may not need the perks that 365 Business gives, whereas many more may need such services. While the programs themselves may be a bit on the pricy side, in the end they all do their job, and they do their job very well.
In this day and age, a good software for video editing is a requirement for anyone who wishes to go into the digital media market. Whether that be on youtube or in freelance advertising, wherever you go a program like CyberLink PowerDirector may help you in your ventures. Of course, if you are unsure of your success, or if you are doing this for a hobby, there is always other options but otherwise PowerDirector is as good as you will get.
