Will there be an update on PD 17 to resize the video to an instagram story size?
I am having trouble using the voice over, it's a hit and miss. Sometimes it records, sometimes it doesn't.

I wonder if something is wrong with the Powerdirector 17 software.

Appreciate inputs from the experts here.
Hi, I'm using PD17 and just learning about it. Is there a way or a tutorial here that I can convert a produced video so I can post it on Instagram? Not talking about IGTV, I want to post the video as a regular video post.

Thanks.
Hi guys,


I'm trying to find a tutorial on how to create a similar animation on the countdown on the below video. Top 10, 9 and soon.

Appreciate any response.

Thanks,
Quote Thanks very much for sharing the clip! First off, I'm able to open and work with it in PD without any issues:



However, I noticed that the file size is very large for a 9 second clip, and the bit rate is 50Mb/s, which is waaayyy more than a simple clip like this needs.

As a comparison, I work with AVC/H.264 60p clips that run at 28Mb per second. Yours is only 30 frames per second (30p) so about 15Mbps is all you'd need for fully detailed HD, but this clip was produced at 4x that bitrate. I'm wondering if that high bit rate what's causing the issue on your computer.

I produced your clip to MP4 and it only required 2Mbps for full quality. In fact, the file size is so small that I can attach it here. It's <2MB in size, while your original clip is 55MB (27 times larger!) PD should definitely be able to use this clip.

I used a 3rd party converter to re-encode your .mov clip to 4Mbps, and the file size came down to 4MB. I've placed it on OneDrive for you, so try downloading that and see if PD will open it.

Let us know how it goes!


Thank you for your response, I gained additional knowledge with your response.
Quote Hi mrloowee123 -

Your .MOV video is an alpha channel video using the QuickTime RLE codec.

Do you have QuickTime installed on your PC? or perhaps QuickTime Lite? If not, that may be the problem.

Thank you, I was able to import it to PD after I install Quicktime. Thanks again.
Quote It looks like it's in a format that's either not supported by PD or that you don't have the proper codec installed on your machine for.

Can you upload the sample clip to Google Drive, OneDrive, DropBox etc and post the link to it here? That way someone can examine it in detail and figure out what's going on.


Hi Optodata, thanks for the response. I've uploaded the .mov file to dropbox, here is the link.

Appreciate your help.

Thanks,
Hi, I wonder why I get an error (see attached) when I upload a particular .mov file.

Thanks

Download links only work for a very limited time, you can pay extra to extend that time and/or to get a disc sent to you. I download and then the first thing I do is save 2 extra copies, one on an external HD and one on a DVD together with a copy of the receipt and installation keys.

If you've lost your downloaded software and can prove purchase then as Barry says, it's only customer support that can help you.




I will definitely save on my external drive. Thanks
Quote Only customer support can help you and you will need some type of proof of purchase.




Thanks Barry. I am working with the Support right now. They provided me the link but for win 8 even though I asked for win 10. Let see what will they say about it. If the software for win 10 is available.
