CyberLink's high-end suite comes packed with post-production goodies
Director Suite 2 is CyberLink's most powerful post-production suite, which includes PowerDirector 12 Ultimate, PhotoDirector 5, ColorDirector 2, AudioDirector 4 and three CyberLink Creative Design Packs.
PowerDirector 12 includes everything you need to create professional videos. There's a 100 track timeline to organise your movie; more than 400 effects, transitions and objects to apply; smart tools to stabilise shaky camera work, remove noise and fix lighting issues; powerful audio tools, excellent 3D support, a huge selection of export options (DVDs, Blu-rays, a host of video formats, direct uploading to Facebook, YouTube, DailyMotion and more).
This is no minor update, either. PowerDirector 12 comes with a lengthy list of new and enhanced features, and gives you even more creative options and opportunities.
Everyone will appreciate the major leap in performance, with CyberLink claiming a 40% speed increase in H.264 encoding, and a 300% increase when using Intel's AVX2.
Director Suite goes further and bundles a selection of other professional CyberLink tools.
ColorDirector 2 is a professional colour correction tool which uses advanced motion tracking to help enhance, correct and adjust the colour temperature and intensity of your videos.
AudioDirector 4 is a capable and very complete sound designer which can apply special effects to your soundtrack, repair audio problems, record custom audio, mix tracks and more.
And the suite also includes PhotoDirector 5, a powerful tool for transforming regular images into polished, professional photos.
You also receive the PowerDirector 12 Ultimate benefits, including 3 Creative Design packs and much more.
Note that you receive the full Director Suite 2 build after purchase, which is approximately 6.5GB with all the extra content. The trial download here is much smaller. There is no backup/install disc option for Director Suite 2, it's download only. Director Suite 2 is not available from retail.
