In PD you can choose between 1, 2 or 4 Fill colors types Colors for Font, Backdrop and Border to achieve a color gradient.
For a background there are only the 1 fill color boards. Is there also a possibility (or workaround) to create a background with 2 or 4 color gradients in PD? Recware: DJI Osmo Pocket, GoproHero7Black, PanasonicFZ300/HCX909, Sony PXW-X160.
Software: Vegaspro365+Vegasaur/PowerDirector365
Hardware: i910900k,32GB,GTX2080s, 1920x1200 display
Playware: Samsung Qled QE65Q6FN, Philips 55PFL7108

I haven't found a way do internally design that kind of background yet. You could use a graphic editor like PAINT.NET (free) or Photoshop Elements or Cyberlink's PhotoEditor. It would be a great addition to the program to include this kind of feature. If someone finds a way to do it internally I'll be very interested.

I think making it externally is the simplest way to do it. Save the image as a 512x512 pixel JPG and you can import it as a background by selecting the image Fill type.

I don't like to go/use external programs. Such a feature should be standard in PD.
The only way to do this now in PD, I can think of, is to use a gradient mask to mix two different color boards.

Let CL know how you feel. Use Rate Us & Provide Suggestions under PD's File menu and maybe they'll include it in a future update.

Depending what NB Fx you have in your PD version, the Gradient Fill Pro Fx may suite your needs.

I have just the normal PD365 subscription, which came without NB Fx. I also cannot discover any NB Fx for PD, not on NB site or at PD site.

The NewBlue packs are listed here, https://www.cyberlink.com/support/faq-content.do?id=25676 for the PD19 specific products. The effect I listed is part of the NewBlue FX Video Essentials VII pack so it is offered as part of the Director Suite for the 365 product line.

The easiest way I found to create a (2) colour gradient background is to use a gradient mask to get a gradient between two colorboards on the timeline. By turning the mask you can change the direction of the gradient and by changing the color boards you can define the gradient colors.
