New AI-powered tools and comprehensive Shutterstock library featuring professional-grade photos, videos and audio empower creators of all skill levels to uplevel their video and photo content
Taipei, Taiwan – September 17, 2020 – CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), today released the latest version of its Director family of multimedia editing software with major updates and new advanced features for its flagship Director Suite 365, and each individual module. PowerDirector, PhotoDirector, AudioDirector and ColorDirector boast new features to deliver even more spectacular effects and higher precision and editing control, along with new Shutterstock content access, templates and design packs.
The new version integrates a comprehensive, royalty-free content library powered by market leader Shutterstock, making hundreds of thousands of professional-grade photos, videos and audio clips available for consumer and commercial use through PowerDirector 19, PhotoDirector 12, AudioDirector 11 and ColorDirector 9.
PowerDirector 19 brings a new, simplified interface enabling users to find the tools they need faster, helping them make powerful, precise edits. Cleaner timeline controls and the ability to easily duplicate title attributes and clips allow users to edit footage efficiently, eliminating the redundancy of re-applying settings and effects throughout frames. PowerDirector 19 also features powerful upgrades to keyframe tools, color matching and motion graphic titles, along with a number of new impressive effects and a faster, more intuitive post-production workflow for professional results.
PhotoDirector 12 adds new AI-powered features to help turn any photo into digital artwork. Photo animation and dispersion capabilities, enhanced content-aware tools and layer controls, as well as popular new creative effects such as glitch and light rays are now available. Person segmentation allows editors to quickly and easily grab and adjust individuals in a scene without tedious manual masking.
AudioDirector 11 now offers even more flexibility and control, empowering users to balance and remove vocals, de-reverb, fix audio ducking, scrub audio and perform 5.1 encoding. ColorDirector 9 rounds out the collection with more precise color controls including a new effects tab, an easy to use green screen creation tool, precision color correct with waveform scope, motion tracking for selection masks and more.
“Our goal has always been to develop software that can push users’ creative boundaries, taking anything they can imagine and translating it into beautiful videos and photos,” said Dr. Jau Huang, CEO of CyberLink. “This new release of our Director software family, with advanced new effects and precision tools, a more intuitive user interface and a new Shutterstock content library, allows users of all skill levels to express their creativity with more flexibility and freedom than ever before.”
