PowerDirector

Definitely suited for a business that has a presence on the internet. It is a relatively easy program to use and will make your video quality look professional. It doesn't matter what business you are into, if video is something that will take your company to another level than this is a good program to get the job done.

Cons

Corel VideoStudio Pro

  • Updates need to be done on a timely basis.
  • Price is high for initial purchase.
  • Video editing sometimes can be cumbersome.
Richard Baroniunas | TrustRadius Reviewer

PowerDirector

  • The advertisements to upgrade need to go. I understand you guys gotta make money but I already paid for the product I have and I don't need a popup every time I open the program telling me there is an upgrade available for $xx.99.
  • Better documentation on how to use certain plugins.
  • DirectorZone is pointless.

Again, I haven't tried a whole lot of different video editing software over the years, but of the ones I tried, PowerDirector seemed to be the right fit for me and the team I worked with. It helped solve the need for tutorial videos and it allowed us to create a bunch of videos in a very small time frame. I recommend it especially for people without a lot of video editing experience

Corel VideoStudio Pro

The original pricing was affordable and the ability to create a video quickly is amazing. Solid product from Corel.

PowerDirector

Although I do have Premiere Pro and PowerDirector AND use them BOTH. I find that I do go back to PowerDirector when I need to get something done in a hurry or for a smaller project. That's not to say that PowerDirector is insignificant or small, but more along the lines of efficient and affordable. Premiere Pro is great too but can be daunting for some.
