Acquiring Online Resources Easily
Users can now browse virtually endless photo and audio resources to add to their movies, with direct access to libraries on Flickr and Freesound. Resources are easily found with PowerDirector's built-in search function, using tags, descriptions and titles. Access to Flickr allows search by most recent, most relevant, or most interesting photos: users can browse and use content from their own library, those of their contacts, plus all that which is made publicly available through the Creative Commons agreement, for virtually endless possibilities.
Built to serve the growing community of creative PowerDirector users, DirectorZone is an online resource of effects and templates. As a creative platform, DirectorZone is a place for users to share effects they have customized themselves using PowerDirector's built-in design tools: DVD menus; title templates; static objects; motion PiPs; and frames. As a library, DirectorZone is a huge online catalog of effects that PowerDirector users can download for their own projects. Users can subscribe to their favorite creator of video effects to receive updates every time a new item is posted online. Not only does DirectorZone let PowerDirector users showcase effects for fellow PowerDirector users, it lets them share them with users of other CyberLink software too, including PowerProducer (DVD templates), and YouCam (frames and PiP objects).
