Quote The GM 4 patch for PowerDirector should be out before the end of the month. It will have additional bug fixes from what are listed here.



PowerDirector GM4 was released for 365 subscribers yesterday, but we've been informed that the patch update version for perpetual versions will be delayed until after the Chinese New Year. This is because testing takes longer for patching (365 version is a different/full build) and was too risky before CL RD/QA go on an extended break. In the meantime, perpetual users can install this beta patch to get most of the GM4 updates.

For GM4, the additional bug fixes added are:

- Fixes the issue that the density value of the Fire and LED sign effects and results are opposite in Title Designer.
- Fixes the issue that imported backdrop images in the Title Designer are not included in packed projects.
- Fixes the issue that Theme Designer templates with masks are not included in packed projects.
- Fixes the issue that volume adjustments are not included in a rendered preview.
- Fixes the issue that program sometimes crashes when double-clicking on the OK button in the Snapshot dialog of the Theme Designer.
