We have rock n rolled onto the tenth day of the TechPP Christmas Giveaway and most of the softwares we reviewed and gave away were something popular for daily use. And today, we present a professional video editing software, Cyberlink’s PowerDirector 8.

PowerDirector 8 is a powerful video editing solution with numerous features to satisfy both amateurs and professionals alike. It has been rated Very Good by PC World and many others. Simply capture your handycam HD footage and start editing on your computer with simple software features that make the whole process seamless. We have 5 free licenses of PowerDirector 8 Deluxe to be given away, each license costing $70!

Cyberlink PowerDirector 8 – Powerful Video Editing Solution


CyberLink is always known to be held back by a distinct lack of features compared to Adobe and Corel alternatives. But, with PowerDirector 8, CyberLink brought the app much closer to the competition and with a competitive price, it has now the best price-to-feature ratio.

Cyberlink’s PowerDirector 8 is one of the best video editing software solutions available, combining all the right features in a professional and easy-to-use video editing package. PowerDirector combines a good balance of simplicity and versatility. The software takes advantage of technology and has so many professional-grade tools, but it’s easy enough that you can actually use it and this is where I see it better than its competitors.


Standard Features of PowerDirector 8


  • Upscaling Video Resolution
  • Adding Surround Sound
  • Fixing Colors & Lighting
  • Smoothing Slo-mo Effects
  • Magic Movie Wizard
  • Customizable slideshows
  • Auto shutdown

Some of the unique Features I like:


  • Direct upload to YouTube and Facebook
  • Particle Effects
  • SD to HD up-scaling
  • Impressive list of output formats, including files for your iPhone, PSP, PS3, Xbox, and Zune
  • Automated “Magic” Editing Tools – Magic Style, Magic Music, Magic Cut

Capturing video in PowerDirector 8 Deluxe is simple, whether you’re using input content from your camcorder or importing from a flash drive or hard drive. PowerDirector supports all major formats (MPEG-2, AVCHD, VOB, VRO, DVRMS to name a few, and will work seamlessly with your old SD camcorder, newer HDV camcorder, DVD camcorder, or even your digital camera.


PowerDirector comes in 2 versions – Ultra and Deluxe. PowerDirector 8 Deluxe is extremely simple to use. The interface is sleek and intuitive, and makes for a pretty efficient workflow. The workspace is quite flexible, allowing you to resize the windows and adjust various components. Making a video slideshow is extremely easy. Simply upload your images, choose from 8 slideshow choices and choose some music.

  • Soon

    Honestly, I never use Cyberlink Power Director 8 before. The only video editor that I used is Corel Video Studio Pro 12 which I bought last year for a promotion price. However, I was shocked when I saw so many edit track from the screen shot above. All I can say is it is not less powerful compare to Corel video studio as it can support so many edit track which Corel video studio does have its limitation. I would anticipate if I can win a license. Good luck for every one.Thanks, techpp.
