Hi


I've recently purchased PowerDirector 365 and was hoping to utilize the video slow down feature found in power tools.

I don't seem to be able to find it anywhere, and have tried making sure I click a clip in the timeline view etc.

The clip I'm editing doesn't have an audio track either.

Am I doing something wrong? Or are the power tools not included in PowerDirector 365?

I tried reading the FAQ and couldn't see anything mentioning power tools in the feature comparison between versions.

Hi,
On my system it looks like this:

Highlight clip in timeline
Tools>Video Speed
which opens the Video Speed Designer

Hi thanks for your response,

This isn't the slow down feature with the interpolation feature though is it?

From what I'd read there was an advanced feature which allowed you to say slow down a 30 FPS by half and not experience any stuttering due to extra frames being intelligently created.

Is this no longer part of the product?

Thanks for any help

Hi,

The Action Camera Centre allows time shift effects to be applied, is this more what you are looking for?

Both the Video Speed Designer and Action Camera Centre have an option to apply interpolated technology. Found under the Settings cogwheel in either window. Note the limitations of interpolation under the info button.
