            Comments about CyberLink PowerDirector 11 Ultra Editing Software:

            This program appears to have a lot of pre-loaded stuff--glitz. For those wanting to insert music and other item from their data base, this seems to be limited. I say "seems" and "appeaars" because this program would not upload. After contacting B&H, their department helped me load it--very good service on B&H side. But issues continued. Online I found others witht he same issue. I contacted the manufacter's support site and they eventually, over a week's time, authorized me to download their version. This helped but still not happy with their preloaded 'glitz'. Now I'm having trouble with Pixela, a 3rd party involved with their product. Search elsewhere and pay more for something that is more flexible. That's my take.

                I wish I had seen these reviews before I bought the product. I have tried everything to install this product but to no avail. Cyberlink's web site only leads you around in circles with FAQs and a Quick Start Guide, neither of which addresses the problem. I have spent hours working on this and have yet to find a way to actually contact a live body at Cyberlink to ask them how to solve the problem!!

                    Tried for several hours but simply could not get past the first install screen. I tried every trick and workaround suggested on the Cyberlink site and on forums. Even tried to copy the DVD onto a hard drive to install from the hard drive, but the DVD content would not copy without errors. There are similar experiences recorded on the B&H and other sites. What can this be but defective disks? And I can't help but now wonder how good a video editing product this can be if the company doesn't even have the quality control to make their product installable. I certainly can't recommend the DVD version of this product.

                        Only software I know of that smart renders 60P AVCHD2 and uses a sd resolution proxy to speed up AVCHD editing.And takes advantage of Window 7 64.I enjoy travelling and documenting those trips with a Panasonic HC X900M. With PD11 I can maintain the superb video quality of this camera since scenes that have not been modified are not rendered. For a number of years I have been editing in AVCHD2and this software maintaines the best PQ of 8 editing programs that I evaluated using free, time limited downloads.The customer service is fairly poor, however there is an excellent forum that helps greatly.

                              Just bought this from your store - got it no problem The problem is it won't install no matter what I do. I should have heeded other online reviews of this software. I have a new fast computer; that isn't the problem. I went to CyberLink's website and followed all their tips and updates, but it didn't help at all. Very frustrating.
