PowerDirector 6 gives you all the tools you need to import media that is already on your hard drive, capture media from a portable video camera, or even capture media from non-restricted DVDs. The CyberLink PowerDirector 6 environment is iconic. You don't have to choose from a bunch of drop-down menus; just click the icon from where you want to capture or import media. It's that easy. Once you have decided where you want to import from, just sit back and relax. CyberLink PowerDirector supports the import of the following file formats for import:
Image: JPEG, TIFF, BMP, GIF, PNG
Video: HD MPEG-2, DVR-MS, DV-AVI, DAT, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, VOB, VRO, WMV, WMV-HD, MOV, MOD, DivX, MP4
Audio: MP3, WAV, WMA, ASF
Capture mode is just as easy [see screenshot below]. You have the ability to set options such as the time limit or size limit of the file that you want to capture. You can also decide where you want the capture files to be stored on your hard drive. CyberLink PowerDirector supports the import of the following file formats for capture:
If your capture card or video card supports it, you can even capture video from your cable TV or antenna. You can integrate some of your favorite TV moments into your video.
You can capture video scenes (including the audio portion) from a DVD for use in your video project. Some DVDs are protected by technology that does not allow you to capture the content they contain (aargh, matey! (you know, like a pirate)). But this is an extremely efficient way to bring captured video from home DVDs you have already made into your current project.
You can take a still snapshot of a video clip that is in your project. If you caught your son's sports prowess only on video and you want to have a digital image of it, you can do that through this still snapshot tool.
