Colorboards - locating them is easy... you just need to view the image.

PowerDirector "versions".

PowerDirector Deluxe and Ultra are the FULL versions of PD. If you have PowerProducer, CDS (CyberLink DVD Solutions), or a hardware product (camera/capture device) with a version of PowerDirector they will NOT be the full versions.

Please view the table - it is titled CyberLink PowerDirector 7 Versions but includes the varients presently available.

Some users are confused about what version of PowerDirector they have and it's capabilities.
Open PowerDirector (your version)
Go to > Help > About
You will see in the pop up what version you have.

The attached table defines each version.

Title Designer > animation effect > Begin effect > Perspective Scroll (right at the bottom of the selection)

Alter the slider in Title Designer as well.

You will have to load your text and font size etc first.

See how with the attached perspective.pds (zipped file)
