Overall Satisfaction with PowerDirector

Currently, I use PowerDirector to created short videos for our company for promo spots on our website. I also have used it to edit previous videos to add or remove content as needed. Currently, only our IT and Marketing Department uses this product but with how easy it is to use, anyone in our company could use it.
  • Almost everything you need is on one screen and very little configuration is needed.
  • Support for many different file types and the ability to upload to social media from the program is great.
  • Editing video is super easy!
  • 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.
  • Positive. Makes my life easier as the "go to guy" for editing videos that need to be done "yesterday"
  • Positive. The price point is fantastic for a full feature video editor.
  • Positive. Saves on us having to have an Adobe license just for Premiere Pro.
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.
If they needed something easy and affordable this would be it. Hands down. It really does not matter what your experience is with editing, with PowerDirector you can figure it out very easily. It also really does not matter what you need it for, it can be used for small home movie projects all the way up to large scale production projects. I have used PowerDirector for both and everything in between.
