CyberLink PowerProducer 6 adds animated menu templates, widens file format support

December 6, 2012 – 16:14 by in Featured, News Print Share No Comment

CyberLink has released PowerProducer 6 Ultra, the latest version of its DVD authoring tool, and while the changes aren’t revolutionary there’s plenty to explore.

The program now includes 14 animated 3D-like menu templates, for instance. Some aren’t so great, but others are very good indeed, and on balance they’re an excellent extension to the program’s abilities.

PowerProducer 6 has extended its file format support, too. The program can now directly import MKV and FLV videos, for instance, as well as a wide range of RAW image formats.

PowerProducer's simple, clean interface focuses very much on ease of use

New disc format support sees the program able to author AVCREC projects, as well as side-by-side 3D discs (although without a menu).

A new and separate LabelPrint tool helps you design custom disc labels, covers and inlays (it’s fairly basic with only a few templates, but worth having if you’ve nothing else to hand).

Of course PowerProducer 6 Ultra is now fully compatible with Windows 8, too. And it’s currently available for $75.99, with a 30-day trial version available if you’re interested (keep in mind that any videos the trial version processes will have a watermark added).

Too expensive? As previously, CyberLink has also released PowerProducer 6 Deluxe, a cut-down version of the same product. Essentially it’s the same program, with Blu-ray and HD capabilities removed, only 5 (rather than 14) of the new animated menus, and no LabelPrint tool. But by way of compensation, it’s only $44.99, perhaps a better deal if you can live with the restrictions.
