CyberLink PowerDirector 11 “GM4” adds ultra-high def profiles, boosts stability
CyberLink has released a notable update to its popular and powerful consumer video editor range. With release GM4, both CyberLink PowerDirector 11 Ultra and CyberLink PowerDirector 11 Ultimate add ultra hi-def resolutions to file production, support for editing GoPro HERO3 clips and an additional seven transitions to the Transition Room.
The new release, which is available for a 25 per cent saving with exclusive bundle of extra goodies worth nearly $70 from the Downloadcrew Software Store, also promises improved program stability and frame accuracy, plus resolves a number of issues.
Ultra hi-def support for three 2K and 4K profiles (2048×1080, 3840×2160 and 4096×2160 for 16:9) has been added to file production using most common file formats and codecs, namely H.264 AVC, WMV, MPEG-4 and MKV. The MPEG4-AVC production profile has also been added for Sony PS Vita devices in build 2418.
An additional seven transitions have been added to PowerDirector 11’s Transitions room: Glass 1, 2 and 3, Paper 1 and 2, and Paper Airplane 1 and 2. All seven were previously found in PowerDirector 9. The new update also extends the program’s support to 15 languages, adding Portuguese and Spanish among others.
CyberLink PowerDirector 11 GM4 also comes with a number of notable stability improvements, including when burning AVCHD discs, and in the Batch Produce screen. It also claims better stability with specific Intel graphics card drivers.
A number of issues are also resolved, including one where 3D MVC files became 2D after production on machines with Intel hardware decoding enabled.
CyberLink PowerDirector 11 Ultra and CyberLink PowerDirector 11 Ultimate are both available as free trial downloads now. The Ultimate Edition includes professional add-ons ColorDirector and AudioDirector.
