Editing 4K Video in PowerDirector Flawlessly


PowerDirector is a leader among video editing software providing a comprehensive list of video and audio formats so that your video making experience is as easy and trouble-free as possible. As it claimed, PowerDirector supports end-to-end editing of 4K and 2K Ultra HD video format. With resolution up to 4096 X 2160, you can create crystal clear videos at 4 times higher resolution than Full HD. However, when users importing 4K video to PowerDirctor, problems always occurred:

"PowerDirector 14 crashes immediately when importing 4K videos"

"During playback of 4K clips in PowerDirector preview windows, the video playback is grainy, choppy, and many times, the video will stop."


Granted, PowerDirector 14 Ultra can handle(usually) 4K fils without much problem, but you should know it is extremely hardware intensive. And the older version Cyberlink PowerDirector 11/12/13/14 can't support Ultra HD 4K videos natively because of the ultra high video resolution and the format compatibility probems. In light of this, it is quite necessary to convert 4K video to PowerDirector most compatible format like MPEG-2(1080P would be the best settings.), which will save you both time and trouble, and all you need is to drag the result videos from prommpt editing.
