Taipei, Taiwan – September 15, 2022 – CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW) today announced new feature updates to its editing software that simplify the creative process and bring editing to the masses. PowerDirector, PhotoDirector, AudioDirector, and ColorDirector now include new smart-assist tools, studio-quality effects, and enhanced precision controls. Combined with templates and guided edits these additions allow users at any skill level to accomplish even the most intricate tasks in just a few clicks.
PowerDirector, CyberLink’s flagship video editor receives feature-rich updates, including enhanced AI-powered tools and thousands of time-saving video intro templates.
The brand-new AI Object Detection tool applies a wide range of visual effects to moving people or objects and tracks them automatically. It’s never been easier to create videos trending on TikTok and other popular social media platforms.
Enhanced AI Motion Tracking adds attention-grabbing text or graphics that follow objects or people with unparalleled precision.
PowerDirector and PowerDirector 365 Business feature thousands of customizable templates with eye-catching effects to kickstart video projects. PowerDirector users can access more than 7,000 ready-made video intros made by our ever-growing community of creatives. Categories include fashion, gaming, music, and more.
PowerDirector Business now comes with over 10,000 templates to help business owners promote their brand on all popular social media platforms. A simple 3-step process allows anyone without editing experience or access to a design agency to create social media ads or posts in minutes.
NVIDIA Broadcast support gives access to state-of-the-art AI audio and video enhancing Denoise features. Intel Hyper Encode support amplifies HEVC production speed by 1.5x, utilizing both integrated and discrete GPUs.
PhotoDirector image editor adds exciting AI-based updates which allow even the most novice editors to achieve professional-level results, without spending hours learning the software. Fixing photos taken in poor conditions is a matter of a few clicks with the AI Denoise tool. A new AI Object Removal tool makes it easier than ever to make unwanted subjects disappear, while re-creating a close-to-perfection background. The Bokeh Effects feature now allows users to control the effect’s focal point, whether it’s a person or background. AI will then automatically adjust the effect’s depth and distance to create a perfectly pleasing visual to match any artistic vision. Also worth mentioning, the AI Anime Face and Cartoon Tool can turn any person into a classic Disney era, Pixar, or Japanese-style cartoon character.
AudioDirector benefits from UI and feature improvements that further improve flexibility and control, as well as quality-enhancing tools that deliver clear audio regardless of the recording conditions. The new EQ Match tool harmonizes audio between clips when recording with different microphones. An Auto Speech Enhancement tool that uses world-class AI algorithms can clarify speech. New audio restoration tools include Spectral Recovery, which preserves the audio’s integrity and quality even when using content altered by lossy compression or when working with old recordings. Simultaneously with this release, CyberLink is excited to announce the launch of AudioDirector Online, a completely free, browser-based version of AudioDirector which includes premium tools such as Wind Removal, Voice Changer, Vocal Remover, and Audio Trimmer.
ColorDirector users will enjoy enhanced and expanded light effects that go beyond color correction, including improved simulations of light, sparkles, and lens flares. Feature updates include AI Motion Tracking for precision color grading on moving objects, Glow Effects to change the atmosphere of scenes with soft glows or color filters, and Light Hit Effects to stylize any footage.
