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

CyberLink PowerDirector 16 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, or your own 25GB of CyberLink cloud storage (free for one year).

That would be impressive enough all on its own, but PowerDirector 15 takes the franchise even further with some interesting new and enhanced features.

There's complete support for importing and editing 360 degree video, trimming, adding titles, effects and transitions, and producing the finished movie.

Created something special? The TRUE360 Viewpoint Designer imports 360 degree footage and allows it to be reused, with your choice of views, in standard videos.

An intelligent Colour Enhancement tool boosts hue and vibrancy, while detecting and preserving skin tones from any distortion.

New effects include Stop Motion, Zoom and Pan tools in the Action Camera centre, as well as web-like filters (Grunge, lighting effects) with the Video Blending feature.

The Mask tool enables building masks from multiple titles and images, giving many new creative possibilities.

There's new support for vertical video at 120 and 240fps.

All this is powered by the TrueVelocity 6 engine, which apparently offers "smoother previewing and significantly faster production".

PowerDirector is available in multiple versions.

PowerDirector 16 Ultra is the edition we've described here.

PowerDirector 16 Ultimate is the next step up, extending the program with more content packs and effects.

But if you can afford it, PowerDirector Ultimate Suite has everything in PowerDirector Ultimate, adds the applications AudioDirector 8 and ColorDirector 6, includes CyberLink's Travel Pack 4 and NewBlue Video Essentials 7, and doubles your cloud storage to 50GB.

Verdict:

PowerDirector is a solid upgrade, particularly with its 360 degree support and new effects, and it remains the best consumer video editor around.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.82

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.
