In Pd17(Windows10/64) ,I would like to edit the properties of a custom Pipobject in it's cpt file, for creating a PipObject from an Image Sequence.

I could find the cpt files from existing Pipobjects ,but the file for the Pipobject I created cannot be found.


Looked in the path where the pip Image is located-

C:\Program Files\CyberLink\PowerDirector17\PiPObject


Also it cannot be found in -

C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\CyberLink\PowerDirector



Where is .cpt file(PipObject) created on disk?

I'm not familiar with a "pct" file. I have hundreds of PiP objects installed but there aren't any .pct files on my system. What properties are you trying to change, and which specific PiP Object is it?

To find where many kinds of PiPs are located on your hard drives, place the PiP object on the timeline then right click on it and choose View Properties. For example, PiP objects downloaded from DirectorZone have been installed in a numbered subfolder of C:\Users\Public\CyberLink\Downloaded Effects\Object Effects. while object from various content packs are in C:\Program Files (x86)\CyberLink\Templates\[name of content pack]

Some PiP objects have a more limited context menu and don't give you a View Properties option, and it will take some detective work to track down their exact locations.

Probably just a typo, more than likely meant *.cpt", the PiPObject template.

Got it. In that case there are hundreds of them scattered across dozens of locations.

I found them all in 2 seconds using the free Everything search app. It will take a minute or so to build its database when you first install it, but you'll get instant results when you type in .cpt

That should be located in Documents/CyberLink/PowerDirector/17.0/MyPinPs/PinP_xxx/x.cpt where x=don’t care.
