Cyberlink released new versions of its flagship multimedia editing solutions spearheaded by major updates to Director Suite 365.
The 2019 Director Suite update brings additions to PowerDirector, PhotoDirector, AudioDirector, and ColorDirector.
PowerDirector 18 delivers video editing tools & effects. With the new motion graphic titles and shape designer, creators can add professional-looking animated titles with motion graphic elements and insert vector-based shapes with auto-fit text in their videos. Social media fans are now able to create, edit, and produce videos in 1:1 square aspect ratio for platforms such as Instagram and Facebook. Professional videographers, YouTubers, and vloggers can now enjoy support for 10bit/10bit HDR video, and 4K video preview, coupled with CPU performance boosts for i9 and R9 chipsets.
The new PhotoDirector 11 is a photo editing software. Comprehensive tools combine the best features of Lightroom-like color grading and adjustments with Photoshop-like layer editing capabilities. Enhancements to the layer editing module speed up users’ workflow by bringing the whole array of PhotoDirector's guided editing tools, all within that module. AI-powered editing tools, including painting style transfer, bring image enhancements at the click of a button.
