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.

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.
