I'm a Gold Member for a year, and generally I like the program - but there are a few things in the interface that are REALLY irritating. I just renewed for another year, but only after I checked out the competition - I stay with PD365 because of one or two features that I don't find elsewhere.

Anyway a few things that could make PD365 a really GREAT product:


  1. Make it possible to clean up the time line easily. I don't WANT the Effects track, or the Titles track, or ... any of that stuff. Please just give a "delete track" option (with a warning if it has content of course) and let ME decide what I want on the timeline. I HATE all that clutter on the timeline that I don't want or use.



2. Make it possible to lock a clip or a track in TIME (so that every clip on it cannot be shifted) but still possible to trim or cut clips, or add effects and so on. Why? I make music videos. I have a soundtrack that I bring in as a .WAV and that never moves. Then I have footage of people playing instruments that I bring in and manually sync to that (has to be manual because the music is a mix of many sources). That's OK. But once that's done I then want to cut that long video take up, manipulate it all kinds of ways - but NEVER lose the sync. (this would just be a flag attached to clips that stays on every clip derived from the original, but can be turned on or off on a clip by clip basis).

3. PLEASE make a way to "de-activate" video clips without actually deleting them (as many audio workstations do). You can turn off a whoel track - but I want to do it to clips in a track. So useful to play with different edit possibilites.

Thanks for listening (I really hope you do, or I'll be shopping around again soon ...)

The best way to get this info to Cyberlink so that the right people see it is to use Rate Us & Provide Suggestions under PD's File menu.

For your 3rd suggestion, just drag the green Opacity control line to 0 on the clip you want to disable. If it has audio that you also want shut off, right click on choose Mute Clip.
