Nine years have passed since you proposed this good suggestion and you have not been taken into account. See if Cyberlink developers take into account this small but powerful change and include it in their updates since version 9+.
Quote i kind of have a similar question!! I want to a single line as an animation on the title, and add another word that would come up later!! Basically, the title, assuming ' The Joker' would come up, then the line would come up on ' Joker', and another word would come up on the side!!
I have been trying to do this for some time now, but failure so far!!! Any tips would be highly appreciated!!

You can also “create a new hand writing drawn paint animation I the Paint Designer” (Pip Objects Room). The problem is that you have to have a good pulse, since there is no key to hold and draw straight lines (that would be a nice new feature id future PD's)
Quote You have the project set to 9:16 vs 16:9.


YES indeed you are right thank you, but that it means that I can not save a 9:16 project in AVI as an example?
Hello old friends,
I was working this week whith a project without any problem until today: Opening PRODUCE, i just notice two funny things: the 3D tab is gone and in Standard 2D tab, all FILE FORMAT's (AVI, MPEG-2, WMV, MPEG-4, MOV, MKV) buttons (except AVC) disappears. Where they go? Anybody knows why this happend? What to do to get them back?

See screen capture

Thanks in advance

Quote Hi Forest and welcome to the forum,

Yes you can flip your clips.

1. Drag the video clip you want to flip to the time line...then open up the EFFECTS ROOM. Scroll down through the effects and search for "FLIP CANVAS". Drag that effect to the EFFECTS TRACK under the clip you want to flip. You can lengthen or shorten the duration of the effect to suit your particular needs. It's default time value is set to 10 seconds in duration.

2. Select (Highlight) the effect on the effects track and then select the MODIFY BUTTON. You will find several options available: NONE, Horizontal, Vertical and Hori/Vert as choices. I think you want the HORIZONTAL choice....this will flip the canvas so that you have that reversed camera angle.

3. Just so you know...the effect has KEY FRAMES applied to it, which can be seen as two small yellow diamonds directly below the PREVIEW the effect will begin when the time(blue scrubber) falls on the first diamond in the clip and end when the time falls on the second diamond. You can DELETE those diamonds...MOVE them to a diffrent location...or ADD additional key frames.

Let's see if this gets you on your way. If you run into anything that you need help with just followup with a question and we can help you through it.

Good Luck and happy editing!


Many years and now this post helps a lot.. Cap'n Kevin

I’m a PD ..many years ago. I'm “trying” to setup my new workstation, but its not easy to select the correct CPU. My options, in price range are:

i7-4770k ( 4Cores x 10 Threads)
i7-4930k ( 6Cores x 12 Threads)
or a dual 6 core XEON.

I have found this topic very useful. HPmanic give some information that "moderators" should take a look and comment about it. I also appreciate if JEFF can give more numbers and rendering times for his i7-3770 setup that can be compared with the Xeon performance (like HPmanic post). The i7-4930K will be in the middle on what it’s going to be my final CPU selection.

Since you dont give much information about your imported file type, I sugest you to use the SEARCH engine for "An error occurred while opening this media file in the media library". You will find a lot information about your problem. Then if you cant find your answer, go back a take a look to
luckily I still have not messed with PD10.. Have fun!
In addition to the be this, the biggest topic of the history of PD, I see that it is just another "what I wish for the next PD (this time PD11) as ever. Dont you think?
I do not know if I remember correctly or maybe I'm wrong, but with all the fuss of PD10, I forgot. I think there is less video profiles in "PRODUCE" on version PD9 3305, than in previous versions. Can anyone confirm that?

It really does not matter, but if so, those who want to continue using PD9.. really have being..... (need to confirm before express my self).
I will buy the full version, not becouse to have PD9 and PD10 on the same computer (its redundant), becouse its the cleanest way to do it. Thanks all.

Before turning to PD10, I have a last question:

Uninstall PD9 before making the offered UPGRADE? or let the PD10 upgrade installer take care of it?

Im receiving a lot of spam from CL saying that PD10 is the World's Fastest Video Editor!. I am quite afraid to install it. If you go to the forum, 95% of the resent post with problems are related to PD10. I wish that Captain or Ynotfish where here! Im sure that they have the best equanimity answer for all. Thats why cap have to navigate away.. far far away!

Take a look at
Quote: Why not just provide a full install?
There is a full package, but you have to pay more and the only "advantage" will be that you can have PD9 and PD10 in the same computer, that for me is redundant
Quote: .......etc
Very usefull information. Has K'ung-fu-tzu say: Upgrade and move on, or get anchored where you are!
Reading all the information you provided in this post and the responses in my post PD10 (, I get the following conclusion:

1. No reason to be shouting at each other. It is very simple. PD10 remains a PD9, but to integrate the new 3D feature, CL had no choice but to create a new version, to be distinguishable from each other.

2. For PD9 users, it is better to upgrade to PD10 and not spend for the full package. Having the PD9 and PD10 on the same computer is redundant and upgrading is cheaper.

My only recommendation to CL would be to reassure users of PD9, that installing PD10, it's like having a new patch of PD9, but having 3D makes peculiarly different, so they had to call it PD10 and the cost research a development of 3D, its what you are paying for the upgrade. Who does not like 3D, do not use it (for now).

Upgrade and move on, or get anchored where you are! (K'ung-fu-tzu)
Thank you Jerry.
Quote: If you buy the upgrade, you are transfering you existing license. If you buy the full product, you are purchasing an additional license.

.. but the question is if the upgrade package have the same features and complements that the full package?
Dear PD10 users,

I have understood that upgrading from PD9 to PD10, you lose all PD9 support rights. Buying the whole package NO.

Now, the question goes beyond that answer. The upgrade package have the same features and complements that the full package?
Thanks Allen of Chicago,

I had already noticed that, but I needed someone else to confirm (sorry does not come from a moderator or CL). Now my question focuses on which is better: PD10 Upgrade to or buy the full package?. I think this question I will ask PD10 forum. Thank you again.

P.S. NY certainly is not New York, are the initials of my last name
There has been only aprox. one month of the release of PD10, and already has or will have a Patch? Thats it's scary movie
Wellcome to the PD Cyberlink version of windows Vista. LOL
