CyberLink PhotoDirector 12 Ultra - version 12.0.2512.0 (64 bit)
When creating an animation from a photo, the process stops at 50% and does not continue. It does not report an error and does not block PhotoDirector.
What can be the problem?

Hello Vydra,

Welcome to the PhotoDirector forum laughing

You're right to be perplexed at that, but could you please provide a little more information?

Do you mean that the animation process stops:

  • while you're previewing what you've done, or

  • while PhD is processing & producing the video/animated GIF?



Which particular animation effect has been giving you the issue?

  • Photo Animation?

  • Dispersion Effect?

  • Animated GIF?

The problem occurs with any final animation creation (up to MP4, GIF).
- animated photo
- dispersion effect

The animation preview is fine

Sounds like there may be a system configuration or driver issue causing PhD to hang. Please read the instructions for generating the DxDiag test results in the Read Me Before Posting guide, then attach them to your reply so we can see the technical details of your PC.

The user manual states that the animation creation feature is limited to the subscription version of CyberLink PhotoDirector only.
Can't this be a problem?
I'm using PhotoDirector 12 Ultra, not PhotoDirector 365.

Hello again Vydra,

I'm sorry you most recent post on this went unanswered.

You may have read that in the Help file or in other CL information, but it is incorrect.

The Help file states:

Photo Animation
Use the Photo Animation* effect to animate a still photo
Note: * this feature is currently only available in the subscription version of CyberLink PhotoDirector.
, but the animation effects are available in both the subscription & lifetime versions of PhD12.

There certainly are some features only available in PhD365. Check this comparison table.
