Trouble Importing Blu-ray to Cyberlink PowerDirector- Fixed
How much is it? $74.99
Win or Mac? Win only
Pros: There appear to be a ton of additional stock intros and picture-in-picture objects that you can download. For basically half the price of Adobe Premiere Elements, it is definitely an alternative worth considering.
Cons: Why have I not heard of this before now?
I honestly hadn’t heard of PowerDirector until recently, but it has received all kinds of awards from PC Magazine, so I decided to give it a try. To start, PowerDirector has an “Easy Editor” mode that takes you to a wizard that walks you through a very basic video creation process. I went straight for the “Full-Featured Editor.”
There are more than enough features for improving video quality and colors. You also have effects you can apply, stock intros you can use, picture-in-picture objects you can insert, transitions you can apply between scenes, audio recording options, and an easy-to-use subtitle input area. It seems to be in line with the feature set of Adobe Premiere Elements, but I personally think this interface might be a little easier to use.
However, just like Adobe Premiere Elements, Cyberlink PowerDirector can’t work well with Blu-ray files perfectly, How to solve it ?
To solve those problems, the quick workaround is to transcode Blu-ray files to PowerDirector natively supported formats. Along with some help from third-party software like Brorsoft Blu-ray Ripper .
I really like the software from Brorsoft company, expecially this Blu-ray converter for only $35.95. It assists me to convert many Blu-ray videos to MOV/MPG/MP4 format. I can play these videos on my iPad and editing with Adobe Premiere Pro/Premiere Elements and PowerDirector with no problem.
Have not found yet.
I converted some Blu-ray and DVD movies and they look great.
