You do not need to be a professional of the movie industry to enjoy working with CyberLink PowerDirector 365, but it might make you feel like one. This comprehensive pro-looking tool comes with a new range of AI-powered features that will help you create stunning videos and movies. Its wide range of video effects and advanced editing options will surely make you believe you are a pro.

Some features are simpler to use than others that may require a steeper learning curve than expected to master, but it's all a matter of time and patience. The effort is worth the while.

The program's launcher gives you a rough idea of what you will find inside. AI Body Effects, Video Stabilizer, Video Denoise, Greener Grass are but a few of the extensive list of editing and enhancing tools available. The main interface itself, with its elegant dark tones, offers you a timeline with up to three dual streams (video and audio) for you to play with in the most intuitive way. A menu and a ribbon will show you all the possibilities, and you can easily check your progress thanks to the video player on the top right side of the screen.

You can upload your own content or make use of the extensive media stock at your disposal — videos, photos, and audio tracks taken from the vaults of Getty Images & Meta Sound Collection. Or you can combine both and add your own effects, transitions, texts, etc. Working with a timeline allows you to select individual frames or specific sections and work directly and exclusively with them. Thus, you can enlarge a certain group of frames, add a slow-motion effect to a specific turn or jump in a video, and add all kinds of messages, credits, and drawings to your movies.

One of the things that make this tool stand from its competitors is the new set of AI-powered utilities to make your movie editing less burdensome. AI Speech to Text will generate subtitles for you in no time. AI Image Generator will produce for you the images you need with the specifications you require. And the list goes on: AI Objetct Detection, AI Restoration Assistant, AI Background Remover, AI Motion Tracking, AI Sticker Maker, etc. All of this on top of its (more standard) effects, transitions, stickers, templates, etc., as well as a full-fledged slideshow creator or a paint designer, to name a few.

CyberLink PowerDirector 365 is not free, but is not expensive either, especially when you look at everything it offers. There are other options, such as PowerDirector 2024 and Director Suite 365, with differences not only in price but also in the possibilities they offer.
