CyberLink PowerDirector 11 Deluxe
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 (YouTube, Facebook, DailyMotion, Vimeo), or burning it to disc, complete with your own custom menus.

And if you've tried PowerDirector before then you should find this release much faster, 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).

Elsewhere, a more flexible user interface 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 of course PowerDirector 11 is now fully Windows 8-compatible, so if you're planning an early update then that won't be a problem.

Please note, PowerDirector 11 is available in several editions, and this one, Deluxe, is the most basic. If you don't need much editing power then it'll probably still be fine, but be aware that moving up even one edition, to PowerDirector Ultra, will get you significantly more features, including native 64-bit support; 3D movie editing support; new content-aware editing; full HD previewing; 4K and 2K Ultra HD import/ export support; BD/ BDXL/ AVCHD burning; and CyberLink's Premium Content Pack.

Verdict:

CyberLink PowerDirector 11 Deluxe is an excellent video editor with a good range of useful new features. This build excludes some of the program's best features, though - 64-bit support, 3D movie editing, content-aware editing and more - so unless your needs are very basic we'd consider opting for a more powerful edition.

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.
