welcome back.
i'm afraid you can't upgade to PowerDirector 18. upgrade is from PD16 & 17. you can go pay for the 365 subscription for year for $51.99 or monthly for $21.99. whenever you cancel then the software is useless.

see 4th of july sale , or left over Powerdirector 12 | ebay .

happy happy joy joy

It would help if you took a screenshot of the About version screen.

PD15 is no longer supported, so you won't be able to upgrade from something like the LE version to the full version of PD15. The only produce currently sold by Cyberlink is PD18/365.

You may be able to find older versions from other sellers on eBay or Amazon, but be aware that versions older than PD16 won't be able to use nVidia GPUs for producing unless you use an older driver, though.

ok. So will power director 18/365 capture from vcr and camcorders, edit and merge videos and burn dvds for tv? Mpeg2?

will it work eith the old avermefia dvdexmaker 7?

The answer is that PD18/365 should work. Download the trial version essentials good for 30 days. The Trial version may have limitations that I have not been able to find in the FAQ.
