What are the real usefull differences between 18 Ultimate and 19 Ultimate?

I also have the Ultra HD preview in my 18

I would like to hear about the short list of major differences before purchasing

I have been happy with 18 Ultimate so far

I think that you are right: UHD is available is 18 too.

Suggest that you have a look at the timeline updates at (18 is September 2019):

and for Ultra and ulitmate (19 only) here:

I just signed up to PowerDirector 365 suite 2 days ago and can not see where to download the PD 19? (I thought I had the most recent version with the plan I had?)


Use the Application manager. (See the announcement by the moderator) Can be downloaded from here:

This is great! Thanks for showing off these new features. I'm eager to dig in and learn more about them myself!

While PD18 also had UHD preview resolution, PD19 seems to be able to play longer before the Serious Frame Drop Detected message comes up. Unlike PD18, if you choose the let PD pre-render the timeline, PD19 does so in small chunks whenever it's otherwise idle so it doesn't get in the way of editing.

Unfortunately, the rendered video is quite a bit lower in quality. A lower bitrate helps speed up the playback, but also completely defeats the purpose of having UHD preview. Take a look at the UHD Preview Resolution details of the source clip and the rendered version:



I've placed full size sceenshots from a 4K monitor along with the media details of both the source clip and PD-rendered version in this OneDrive folder. I strongly recommend not using the UHD preview setting if your PC keeps getting the Serious Frame Drop message.

Are you saying using UHD preview in Both will lower the outputted Video or is it a bigger problem with 19 or 18 ?

Wow! That's a pretty significant drop in preview quality. Seems like the developers were focusing more on playback rather than quality.

Aloha Bruddah Maliek!

You have been a great help to me as I have watched your PDU. Mahalo!

Quick question...

Have you known of some having their PD365 being glitchy with the new update? Mine is. Then it stops responding.
I have upgraded my video drivers, have plenty memory and plenty space on my hard drive. Can't figure this sukka out!

Any ideas?

Mahalo!!

Marshall
