Product description

CyberLink PowerDirector 16 Ultra (Download) allows the enthusiast editor to create truly artistic and stylish videos. PowerDirector is a consumer-level editing system but from beginning to end it's loaded with pro-level features. The difference? PowerDirector lets you do everything quicker and easier, by drag-and-drop and similar methods. But it nonetheless provides the tools to not only cut and organize a video and spruce it up with effects, but also to fix footage, manipulate it, color-correct it, and much more, and most of this with simple one-click presets.

PowerDirector 16 is a comprehensive software with a 100-track timeline and support for popular file formats and up to 4K resolution video. It's Windows-compatible and operates on minimal system requirements (please see Specs). The Ultra version comes with 6 effects/templates packages and includes 25GB of CyberLink Cloud Service for one year.

For those on the go, PowerDirector offers an express editing feature where you simply select a template, drag and drop clips in the beginning, middle, and end of the template, and PowerDirector will take care of the rest, returning to you a fully edited video with transitions, effects, etc. You can also choose to share this video on social media direct from PowerDirector with the press of just another button, or similarly to burn it to DVD or Blu-ray (burner required) complete with a menu.

Among the more advanced features you'll find motion tracking, audio ducking, look-up table support, split toning and HDR effect, chroma key, and much more. A popular feature that's also built in is a screen capture tool that allows you to record whatever's happening on your desktop. This function is ideal for creating software tutorials, recording game play, and recording your screen for vlogs. Furthermore, CyberLink WaveEditor Express is also included for recording and editing audio.

Subject: voice over recording
Date: 04.03.2021 09:55:47Name: Joy
I am dubbing a video. I loaded the original video in Track 1. Then loaded the recorded voice (dub) on Track 2. How come these 2 are placed - stereo-wise - one track on the left and the other on the right when I did not do any panning?(... I don't want to) This is not the first time I've "produced" a dubbed video and this hasn't happened. Maybe I have accidentally set a split without being aware of it. But where do I adjust?
