CyberLink PowerProducer is a reliable software solution that enables you to process VCD, DVD, Blu-ray, AVCREC and AVCHD media before burning it to disc.
The user interface of the program is attractive and intuitive. In the main window, you can select to produce a movie disc, Right-to-Disc (transfer video directly to DVD or BD), edit a disc, open an existing project, or access additional utilities.
When you want to create a movie disc, you basically have to capture, import and edit content. You are required to select the video format type you want to produce (CD, DVD, Blu-ray, AVCHD, AVCREC), the specific recording format (e.g. VCD, SVCD, BDAV, BDMV), disc capacity and playback aspect ratio.
In the next step, you can import video files, photos or scenes on a disc, capture video from an external device (i.e. webcam), edit video clips, make a commercial cut, create an image slideshow, customize the menu, set chapters, preview video and edit text on video (e.g. title, play, scenes).
Once you have finished your masterpiece, you can either save the project so that you can work on it further, or you can burn video to disc.
The program froze every time we entered the menu customization stage. It also takes several seconds to load each main function of CyberLink PowerProducer and it uses a high amount of system memory.
Otherwise, the application comes in a nice package regarding video processing and burning options (although the editing options are kind of light). It has a very well-drawn help file, a visually appealing user interface, and it is very simple to work with.
