I'm using PhotoDirector 8 and I assume it's the same with the latest version yeh?

Finally gave up on Picasa and wanted to use PhotoDirector as my media organizer. Sadly, it doesn't seem to show my videos! is this software for organizing photos only?

I needed something that organizes my memories (both pics and videos!)

Regards to all!

Hello MojoTojo,

Welcome to the PhotoDirector forum laughing

PhotoDirector serves largely as a photo management & editing application.

PhD8 & more recent versions can import videos, but only for the purpose of extracting frames (Video to Photo). It is not intended to be a complete media organiser.

I have just installed the trial version for MacOS Mojave (10.14)
PhotoDirector 10
I mainly need to make panoramic photos from videos I make recording the screen image while I use certain software.
I cannot even import videos and cannot find the video-to-photo tool anywhere...
Is this tool part of this software?...
I wonder whether the trial version (first 30 days) lacks of this tool

All of the trial limitations are described in the Download Information section of this page.

It says that the video-to-photo tool is available for the first 30 days. You can access it from the Import menu (at least on the Windows version):



You'll then be presented with a screen asking what you want to do, and you'd obviously want to select the second option in the first row:



Please note however that the trial version will NOT allow you to import 2k/4k video or anything recorded with HEVC (H.265). The limitations page also says you'll need to have independent AVC (H.264) codec support. You may need to downscale your screen recordings to HD (1920x1080 or 1440)to get them to work.

If any of those items are dead ends, you can purchase the full version which has none of those limitations, and you have 30 days to evaluate PhotoDirector and still get a full refund if you don't like it.
