I can't seem to find the 5.1 audio option, has it been removed in Power Director 18? I used to use 5.1 all the time for my videos.

Dolby Digital Supports

The Dolby audio (decode/encode) feature is now included in the latest versions of the Windows operating system (Windows 8.1 and Windows 10). PowerDirector 18, AudioDirector 10, ColorDirector 8, and above versions, and the 365 subscription versions, now use the operating system's technology to support the Dolby audio* feature (importing/exporting video files with Dolby audio).

Windows 7 platforms do not support the Dolby audio feature. If you encounter the condition that Dolby files do not have sound after they are imported into Director Suite programs on Windows 7, you are recommended to upgrade your operating system to the latest version of Windows 8.1/10 for the latest multimedia editing compatibility.

The Dolby audio export feature is no longer supported for AVCHD/Blu-ray/DVD video discs. You are advised to export the audio as LPCM format for video discs. For video files, you can export the audio as Dolby Digital format in 2 channels. Gruß Bernd

DTS 5.1 could be your current solution.

It seems Dolby has done with cyberlink, and so as Adobe Premiere couple years ago.

I'm not sure which part you're referring to, but the part about Dolby not being being supported on Win 7 is shown on the Specs page, where there's an asterisk next to all Dolby listings.

If this is a deal breaker for you, CL has a 30-day money back guarantee. If it's past 30 days, you can upgrade to Win 8, 8.1 or 10, or use any other audio codec.
