You must have video clips in the timeline first before you can access it from PowerDirector. Try this: highlight a video clip on the timeline. Click Fix/Enhance and you should see the ColorDirector option to click on it.

YEP!

I had a clip in time line earlier and Color Director did not show up. I restarted computer and all is good. It is as you had stated after clicking "enhance"

Thanks much!

I have an instructional video (music) with livingroom furniture of various colors, shapes and sizes in the background. Is it a difficult task to eliminate the entire background and replace with black?

Thanks..

I would use the motion mask to create the green screen in which I would either produce or chroma key out in PowerDirector. Difficulty depends on the person, the video length, etc. Post on a New Topic if you have problems. If you have problems in creating the green screen then there is a fix for it. Don't get discouraged.
