You have confirmed that your TV is the problem. As far as I know, all modern phones use the rotation flag to differentiate between a portrait or a landscape orientation in a video. There are no settings in a phone to change this. This applies to all android and ios phones that I have seen.

It may be that your TV media player is too old to display portrait videos. There are several fixes for this. Buy a new media player, buy a new smart TV, cast the video from the phone, cast the video from a windows 10 or 11 pc are some of the solutions.
I just tried an original 9:16 Samsung Galaxy Video placed on a usb flash drive. The TV video player displays it properly. The MediaInfo are 1920 x 1080, Display aspect ratio: 16:9, Rotation 90 degrees.

More than likely, the media player on your TV may not be recognizing the Rotation flag. Place the original video on the flash drive and see if this is the case.
Quote My experience is you do not buy Cyberlink plugins, you rent them.
Then when CyberLink ends the contract with the plug-in company all hell breaks loose and eventually after a few updates you lose the plug-in.

One can avoid such problems that Barry mentioned. Go rent such software directly from Boris FX as they don’t sell them. Here is the link and the prices for a subscription: .

I did get a free standalone particle creator from them years ago by signing up for their newsletter.
Highlight the clip. Go to Fix/Enhance / Lighting Adjustment is one way.
The watermark image is not attached and can't be seen.
Quote 100% load as you show is very typical for H.265 CPU encoding, is that what the example is?

No. It was the avc mp4 1080/60p (40 Mbps) default profile. I have previously read the reviews and tests on this particular AMD cpu and the 13th gen i9 competitor. This was supposed to run at 95 Celsius all the time unless one changes the settings in the bios. No other Ryzen 9 7900x users have come forward with information about this but it can easily be read on the net on how users disable this speed feature to make the cpu run cooler for their perceived safety for longevity which is not necessary.
Does PD18 have a 4:5 aspect ratio setting. If not, then see this recent post for the answer: . Any AR can be created using this method.
This should not happen. Please attach a screenshot on your next reply so we can see the watermark in question that adds itself randomly.
No. You can save a modified mask but not with a video.
Moving the horizontal cursor helps on the timeline and can regenerate a view of the audio waveform on my pc..
You can accomplish this by using the tools VLC or Virtual Dub2. Here is a guide that may help get you started: .

A search of this forum may reveal other guides for other aspect ratios that may help.
Quote The original 6-year-old Intel i7 PC was loaded at 100% when rendering on all cores. On a new PC with SSD disks and DDR5, I only have about 50-60% rendering load. Temperature CPU is about 75 degrease C.

Skeblon - It is interesting that you stated that your old Intel 4 core 8 thread cpu can load at 100% on all cores and no other users here backs you up or acknowledge this. You supplied no supporting facts. See the attached screenshot. That is what I remembered on my Intel cpu, newer or older (100% utilization on all cores and threads. In Preferences checking or unchecking hardware decoding makes very little difference.

Don’t have an AMD cpu to compare. I seem to remember in the PD Forums that AMD cpu users cannot achieve 100% utilization with the type of hyperthreading when using PD. You may want to search the forums to locate them. Jeff has supplied the best answers to many inquiries in this forum.
Quote Thanks for the clip....laughing

In the linked clip he has shot in 120fps, which allows him to apply the slow motion, he then intends to produce the clip at 24 fps.

If I am understanding this corectly the clip will drop frames from the original 120fps to allow it to fit the produced 24 fps

Will this alter the quality of the clip causing jitter?

Would producing at a higher rate, say 60fps be better? going on the logic that less frames will be dropped.

Would shooting, altering speed and producing everything at 60fps work better?


One can always set the slow motion rate to have no added frames and no removed frames. The produced 24 fps video can look as smooth as silk. 24 fps/ 60 fps = 0.4, 24 fps/ 120 fps =0.2 Setting the 60 fps and 120 fps video to 0.4 and 0.2 respectively will accomplish this.

Most people’s eyes can tolerate judder. Americans watching 24 fps movies with a 3:2 pulldown get used to it on a NTSC TV. The tutorial slow motion is set to 0.3. You probably did not see the judder at all and the judder in the ramping for 0.5 seconds as frames were removed or added as needed for the 24 fps needed.

Here is a 60 fps YouTube short recorded at 60 fps. Slow motion set at 0.1(10X slower): . You need to check and let me know if you see any judder in the background. The Audio maintains the pitch during the slow motion segment as explained in the tutorial.

You see the slow motion at 0.3 in the tutorial instead of the 0.2 explained. You see the YT short slow motion at 0.1 with the audio pitch maintained. You have to let us know if you see any problems with the slow motions not set at the explained settings. Do you prefer 24 fps or 60 fps you see?? Or does it matter…
29 to 00 in frames is a count of 30 frames when the frame is advanced on my 59.97 fps timeline.
Quote Could you take a look at my next example and try and explain to

So far I have been producing at 24 fps.

I would like to include within my future edits the ability to create speed ramps. During the shoot I would not know what action would be worthy of a speed ramp, With this in mind at the set off, where should my shoot and produce fps be.

Where is the next example that you want explained. The frame rate doesn’t change the speed of motion in the clip as already explained by optodata. You have to enable a slow motion effect in the timeline to do that.

See this tutorial: . It could answer about producing at 24 fps, 60 fps video, and speed ramps.
I answered that question a year ago and you never responded. You may mean masking so you don’t have to zoom to do the job. Use a mask in mask designer.

A different user may be able to show how to do this.
SVRT means smart rendering in other video editors. It means video that is not changed in the timeline can be copied over, Since you have 4 tracks, I doubt that smart rendering can be used at all. SVRT may work on the h.264 encoded files if you check the ‘Allow svrt on a single…’ in Preferences. The produced avc files have problems playing on correctly on most players. You will probably see some green on the svrt bar and encoding may be somewhat faster over the green portions on the timeline.

1 Yes, only if it is an avc encoded mp4.
2. Yes.

Someone else will have to answer about the blue icon. I don’t remember that. Why not do hardware encoding to speed up the production. Others will give a different opinion about svrt based on their experience.

I use svrt all the time as I tend to do all the corrections in the camera and use the clips, trimming off the ends. Works only on avc and not on hevc clips from my cameras.
Quote So, if I upgrade, I won't see those 4 seconds?

Yes. Those 4 seconds of advertisement added seen at the end in your video is only if you produce using the recently updated trial version. You are allowed to upgrade to a new full version of your choice but still keep all of your trial versions and other versions too. They can all coexist on the same pc.
I downloaded the OP’s sample.mp4. It is entirely normal to have that same PowerDirector 4 seconds advertisement tacked to the end of any produced video when using the updated trial edition.
Quote Working on editing a video for youtube channel...
and my new 365 CyberLink program will do well in the first hour of editing.
then suddenly , it will freeze up, and turn my screen Grey..

Is there a fix , I can download , so the 365 , doesn't freeze up and crash , my whole

It is possible that you could use a temp monitoring program like HW Monitor to see if the components are heating up in about an hour. A Laptop cooler may help extend the time for editing if heat is the cause.

EDIT: optodata answered first. The autosave optodata mentioned would help immensely.
