PowerDirector won't auto detect the commercials for you. Cyberlink used to have software that did this, but I don't think it ever made it into PowerDirector.

Yes, Multi Trim is exactly the tool you should use. Allows you to trim the videos precisely, you can cut out all the commercials in one go. You could also do it right in the timeline using the Split button.

My big question is, what happens to the yearly subscription when a new version of PD comes out, say PD18?


If your subscription is active, you will get the update to the new version as soon as it comes out. As an example here, the latest version of PowerDirector is actually 17.6, which non subscribers do not have.

H.265 HEVC encoding is not supported on Android OS, so you gotta use H.264 AVC for 4K video output.

Ash
No idea. You'll have to wait and see if it is supported in Powerdirector 18, which comes out in early fall usually.

Ash
PowerDirector 17 doesn't support MXF files. See attached.

You'll have to convert the file to use it in your project.

Ash
Just go to general preferences and deselect the "check for updates" option. You should receive any of these notifications afterwards.

AVI files are an older file format that produces really large files. That is probably why the file size has been inflated so much. In the Produce window, select the H.264 AVC file format. This is a relatively newer format that will produce a much smaller file.

You can also try clicking on the Online tab in the Produce window and use the direct upload to YouTube feature. May save you some time.

The implementation of 1.3 increased the transmission bandwidth enough for 4K content, which 1.2 is not capable of.

Ash
Check the Cyberlink Cloud tab in PowerDVD preferences if you haven't. PowerDVD may be trying to sync your media if you have those items selected, and that is why you are getting the message.

Or sign out of the cloud on the CL Cloud tab. Are you still signed in there?
