Negative Comment by carlosvgonzalez
about Cyberlink PowerDirector Oct 2016

Cyberlink PowerDirector is fast, well, the render and video stabilization is, BUT...
It's fast render because it actually renders half of frames it should, the video output is choppy, can't even compare to GPU renders from other vendors, you actually have to use compare to other software like Adobe Premiere Elements or Vegas, this last ones have lot better quality.

This software is not too bad in its genre. It provides pretty advanced features if you take the best version of it. Coupled with Colour Director you can finetune the image though personnaly I never used that.
