CyberLink PowerDirector 11 Ultra
Transform ordinary home videos into polished, professional movies with this powerful, easy-to-use editor

CyberLink PowerDirector 11 is the latest edition of this popular, feature-packed consumer video editor.

As with previous releases, the program provides everything you need to create professional videos, complete with soundtrack, transitions, special effects and more, before exporting your project to a file, sharing it online, or burning it to disc, complete with your own custom menus.

And this is no minor update. Rather, PowerDirector 11 includes some very significant additions which will make a real difference to the editing experience, and this will be obvious from the moment you launch the program.

There's no longer any need to waste an age manually browsing lengthy movies, for instance, identifying the key sections you'd like to import, because PowerDirector 11's new content-aware editing can now do this for you. In just a click you have the program analyze any clip, quickly picking out the important scenes - the shots with zoom, pan, motion, faces and more. All you have to do is select these with the mouse, and import them for further work: much quicker and easier than ever before.

And your subsequent edits should also be much faster with PowerDirector 11, as the program now properly optimizes itself for your graphic technology (AMD VISION, nVidia GeForce or Intel 3rd Generation Core). While new multi GPGPU support means the program can, say, use the GPU processor in an integrated and additional graphics card to deliver even more performance (CyberLink quote a 38% speed increase as typical).

If you like to live on the leading edge then one of the ways you might use this extra power is via the program's new end-to-end support for 4K Ultra HD resolution; 4,096 x 3,072 (60p/60i) or 4,096 x 2,304 (60p/ 60i). Whether you want to import 4K footage directly from the latest cameras, edit it more effectively or publish to that resolution yourself, PowerDirector 11 has you covered.

But if you're more interested in simple, down-to-earth improvements which everyone can use, don't worry - the program has plenty of those, too.

A new flexibility in the interface, for instance, means it's now easy to adjust the media room thumbnail size and timeline track height, so giving you a much clearer look at exactly what you're doing.

A new "Customize Keyboard Hotkeys" dialog displays all the program's hotkeys, and allows you to tweak them to suit your precise needs.

The Titles, Menus, Picture-in-Picture and Particle Effects designers now all run full-screen to help you produce more accurate results.

And in the fourth quarter of 2012, CyberLink will also release PowerDirector Metro, their first Windows 8 tablet editor, allowing you to do quick work outdoors before importing and continuing your project in PowerDirector proper.

Please note, PowerDirector is available in multiple versions. This one, PowerDirector Ultra, contains all the core video editing features, but omits some of the premium content you get with the Ultimate, Ultimate Suite and Director Suite builds: sample NewBlueFX motion and paint effects, assorted premium content packs, bonus colour correction and sound design software tools, and more.

Verdict:

Faster, smarter and more powerful than ever, CyberLink PowerDirector 11 Ultra is a significant upgrade which includes an excellent mix of new features, and is still one of the best video editors around.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
