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.
