Ratings and Reviews
I love it but..
Hey just to start off I love this app and I am so happy that you put it on iOS! I make gacha life videos and I personally think that power director makes my videos so much better. The first think I don’t really like is the watermark. I’m just a kid so I can’t pay like 40 dollars a year for the premium membership, so I would like it if you could be able to remove the watermark for free. The second weird thing is that when I try to add a picture or something it says like “unable to place video/picture see if it is in your library” and I do check my library and the picture/video is there so I’m a little confused I really want to know what’s up with that it might be sort of a bug or something and I just want to know if you can maybe get rid of that. But other than that I LOVE this app I would really recommend this app. Bye and keep up the good work!

Hi, thanks for your feedback and suggestion. About the concern of adding video/photos, I guess the media is still on your iCloud shared album. Try download the media in the Photos app first and then adding them to your project timeline again. If it is not the case, you may use the Send Feedback in the PowerDirector Settings menu to contact us. We will help you out.
SUPER LAGGY CONSTANT ISSUES
So happy I paid $40 for this... not. I’ve had nothing but issues with lag on every single thing I do. For example, I go to split a clip & it freezes for a good 8 seconds before it actually clips it. Try to undo that? Another 8 second freeze. Now it crashes and kicks me out whenever it feels Ike it. OH ALSO! It will delete your clips & say it’s because you deleted the media off your phone when you never did. Literally anything I do, it freezes. This app is trash, don’t waste your money.
UPDATE! App still continues to lag if you try editing a video over 10 mins in length. I’m coming on here to update this review because this happened just now while trying to use app again.
AS I WAS EDITING, (which mind you has a good amount of splitting both video & voiceover recordings from my mic and being sure they match up in sync perfectly.. A LOT of effort put into this) the media goes red MID CUT & says it cannot be found... the media is still on my phone like it was when it initially pulled it. Ruined & Ridiculous! It’s just so unfortunate that you pay for an app like this with all it has to offer... and you implement multiple things like music/video/text/voiceover and it can’t even keep up with using all of them without such lag.

Hi, we did a quick test, but the app works fine. This might be caused by specific video clips or hardware. To help you with this, please contact our support team through "Send Feedback" in app Settings, and tell us more specific about the concern. We will help you at the earliest. Thank you.
Timeline and chroma-key
This app is supposed to be compatible with my ipad pro, but the chroma key is not available. I bought this app primarily for the chromakey. I have other movie making apps that I like as well, all I need is basic editing. I really wanted to explore a little more with chromakey and its ability to mask and blend, but the chromakey feature is NOT AVAILABLE as indicated.
The timeline feature is annoying. If you have ever used CyberlinkPowerdirector desktop version, it is a little bit different. I wouldn’t say it is a lot better. Each version has its ups and downs. So far, I am not completely satisfied with either of them. Each has features that are annoying to use. The videos make it seem so simple but it really isn’t. In order to add a layer, I’d have to add the content in order. If I were to add it after I had already made adjustments and edit the footage, I can’t just add content without everything getting moved and adjusted out of the order I previously placed them. Too bad I paid for the whole year instead of just trying it out for the month. I want a refund!

Hi, if you would like to use the Chroma key tool, the Mask tool, and the Blending tool, please make sure you edit on video overlay. These features are available on the overlay tracks.
Thank you for sharing your thought and feedback with us. We have forwarded the need for locking tracks to our corresponding department for consideration.
If you have any questions during using our app, please use "Send Feedback" in-app Settings to contact our support team. The team will help you out. Thank you.
