CyberLink PowerDirector 13 Ultra
Transform ordinary home videos into polished, professional movies

CyberLink PowerDirector 13 is the latest edition of this popular, feature-packed video editor.

The program includes everything you need to create professional videos. There's a 100 track timeline to organise your movie; more than 500 effects, transitions and objects to apply; smart filters to stabilise shaky camera work, remove noise and fix lighting issues; powerful audio tools, excellent 3D support, and a huge selection of export options: DVDs, Blu-rays, a host of video formats, direct uploading to Facebook, YouTube, DailyMotion and more.

That would be impressive enough all on its own, but PowerDirector 13 takes the franchise even further with some interesting new and enhanced features.

The bundled Transition Designer allows you to create your own transition effects from any image, for instance, with full keyframe control helping to deliver the precise results you need.

The new Title Designer offers even more creative opportunities, with 120+ video effects on hand to produce your own custom titles.

Extended file format support means PowerDirector 13 can now handle H.265/HEVC, 2K/4K and XAVC-S files. That's not just a footnote, either: CyberLink claims H.265/HEVC can save "up to 32% in file size compared to H.264 format under same compression quality".

A new Android/ Windows 8 PowerDirector Mobile app delivers capable editing on the move, with good drag and drop support, 40+ effects and transitions, and 10GB cloud storage space for a year. Projects can be continued on the desktop, or uploaded directly to YouTube or Facebook.

Elsewhere, various improvements include better image stabilisation, a more powerful menu designer, and new support for automatically synchronising up to 100 camera clips on the timeline.

PowerDirector is available in multiple versions. This one, PowerDirector Ultra, includes everything we've described above, as well as the WaveEditor 2 Express application, and a basic set of effects and templates (Content Pack Essential and Premium, NewBlue Video Essential 1, ProDad Adorage Filter).

PowerDirector Ultimate takes the same feature set, and adds $650 of premium effects, including NewBlueFX Video Essential 5, NewBlue Titler Pro v1, Wedding Pack and Holiday Pack.

PowerDirector Deluxe takes the Ultra product and leaves out the cloud storage, mobile app, Content Pack Premium effects, and many of the program's more advanced features (multicam editing, content aware editing, transition designer, 4K/ SAVC-S/ H.265/HEVC/ 3D support, Blu-ray authoring).

But if you can afford it, PowerDirector Ultimate Suite has everything in PowerDirector Ultimate, adds the applications AudioDirector 5 and ColorDirector 3, includes CyberLink's Travel Pack 2, and doubles your cloud storage to 20GB.

What's new in build 2307?

- Supports hardware encoding with NVIDIA Kepler or newer graphics cards.
- Improves audio format compatibility for audio sync function.
- Improves video quality when burning Blu-ray Disc with the 1920x1080 50p profile.
- Fixes the crash issue encountered when entering the Particle room with certain NVIDIA graphics cards.
- Fixes the crash issue encountered when adding clips to timeline, with Intel graphics hardware decoding enabled.
- Fixes the issue where program hangs when certain .mp4 clips are imported.
- Fixes the black preview issue with certain .mov clips.
- Fixes the issue that the “Stabilizer" setting is disabled after reopening a project.
- Fixes the issue that the Blu-ray Disc root menu highlight option is out of position in some menus.
- Fixes the issue where image sizes are reduced in the PiP Designer after typing a new opacity value.
- Fixes other minor bugs

Verdict:

PowerDirector 13 isn't as major an upgrade as the last release, but the program still has plenty to offer every level of user, and it remains the best consumer video editor around.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
