I am missing all the video tools other than 'split' I.e. Modify. Fix/Enhance, PowerTools & Keyframe. They do appear when some clips are high-lighted but disappear on others? I know that if you select 'movie' rather than 'clip' they disappear, but I do have it on the 'clip' setting. Can anybody help me please?! I am using Power Director 13 Ultra and Winows 10

Are you also missing menus and other things. I had a problem with the interface not drawing properly. A simple windows restore and maximize solved the graphic issue, for a while anyway.

hello thanks for your reply. No everything appears to be OK other than the missing tools. So I think my problem is different. Might try un-installing PowerDirector and then re-installing. if not then will go back to my old Magix software!!!

Try unlinking the audio and video, See if the Video Editing tools come back.

You might check for Cyberlink software updates for your version of Powerdirector.

Hello, pyratepeter4!

When a video is placed on the timeline but not highlighted, it is assumed by PD that you are simply viewing it. Thus Power Tools etc. will not appear. When highlighted, all your tools will appear to perform whatever tasks you want to perform with the clip. It's as simple as that!

Cheers!

Neil.

The above is, as I believed, the case with PD12, previous(back to PD or subsequent versions. However, Carl has pointed to a bug in the PD12 software that results in the problems you've described. Had you encountered such problems earlier(say, not long after first installation) or have these problems been ever-present? If so, then Carl's recommendation of the patch might help. I thought I should add this to my existing post rather than start a new post.

There is a Bug in the program that may have been fixed in a Cyberlink update.

Latest patch is all you need to install.

When PD 12 was the main Powerdirector forum, there were many posts about that problem. I do not know if Cyberlink ever solved the problem. Unlinking Audio and Video was the workaround. Carl312: Windows 10 64-bit 8 GB RAM,AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4 GHz,ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB,240GB SSD,two 1TB HDs.
