PC mag says: "CyberLink PowerDirector far surpasses all the competition in its field by every measure. " That's pretty high praise!

Where does that leave PrE users? Should we be looking to switch? Would that be recommended, easy or difficult; considering the learning curve?

I have only been using PrE for a year or so, would I be advised to switch; I mean is it that much better than PrE? Would the support be as good; PrE has a lot of forum support; plus I have two of your PrE books!

I've been considering switching to Pr Pro, but the cost worries me; now the Adobe isn't selling programs but subscriptions.

I have watched a couple of your tutorials and I does seem impressive.

It doesn't hurt to try to free demo.

No one software is objectively better (or worse) than all the rest. It's a matter of which best fits your workflow and feels right to you.

I actually have CS6; but with CC I will not have to upgrade again.

My issue is whether to include Pr Pro in my CC package; what will it add to my monthly charge..Now that I've stumbled onto Cyberlink PowerDrive I am thinking that the question might be moot; if I chose to switch to Cyberlink.

Unless you have pressing reasons to move to CC then I would stick with CS6. For my part, once Premiere Pro CS6 begins to deliver less than I want I will not be moving to CC but will look elsewhere for my video editing software.

For stills work I suspect that Photoshop CS6 will likely see me out as the "static" image side of technology seems less inclined to rapid changes in technology vis a vis video.

Maybe that was part of Adobe's strategy, to ditch non-professional users like me?

Mike,

In my opinion, PowerDirector is competing with Premiere Elements rather than Premiere Pro. Premiere Elements and PowerDirector are both consumer oriented and have similar functionality. The included specific effects and templates may be different, of course. And, they differ in how you do things. But, overall, they both should be capable of doing a great job. Try both and see which has the features and effects you want and which feels more in line with how you like to work.
