Preserve your analog tape in digital format
The image quality of analog tape won't last forever. Converting your VHS, S-VHS, Hi-8 and other analog video tapes to digital format preserves the video and lets you edit, copy, enhance and transfer to DVD, CD or the web.
Transfer and edit videos from your digital camcorder
Transfer video from your camcorder tape to your PC hard drive as DV files or directly into MPEG format to save time and hard disk space. Or use Right-to-Disc™ Recording to transfer DV files directly from camcorder to DVD in one simple step.
Turn your videos into professional-looking movies
PowerDirector makes it easy to capture, edit and share your videos, yet doesn't leave out the powerful features you want. Produce your movie using an intuitive TimeLine or Storyboard mode. Select your favorite clips, then edit, add sound, titles and special effects to create a Hollywood-style movie.
Share your movies on DVD, VCD, SVCD...or on the Web!
Transfer movies and photo slideshows to disc and watch them on a home DVD player. Or transfer to streaming video format to send via email or post on the Internet for friends and family to enjoy.

A Closer Look


  • Preserve your Analog Video Tapes
    The image quality of analog tape will not last forever. Over time it will gradually degrade and the colors will start to fade, blend together, blur, etc. Converting your analog tapes to digital format gives you video that will last a lot longer than tape, can be easily duplicated with no quality loss, and delivered in a number of different ways.
  • Create a DVD Movie
    Once you have a library of digital videos, either from capturing analog video or transferring digital video from a DV camcorder, you can incorporate the clips into a movie. PowerDirector lets you edit, produce and burn movies to DVD, VCD and SVCD for viewing in your DVD player. If you do not want to make an elaborate movie production with PowerDirector, you can use PowerProducer Express to make quick DVDs of your video clips with simple menus.
  • Create Photo Slide Shows
    PowerDirector and PowerProducer Express let you create slide shows of your digital photos for viewing on CD or DVD. You can also take snapshots from your video clips using PowerDirector and incorporate them into your slide shows along with your other pictures.
  • Create Videos for the Web or E-Mail
    Movies created in PowerDirector can be saved in Windows Media® and RealMedia® formats for streaming video on the web. Use this feature to create compact videos for web sites, or for sending videos via e-mail.
  • Transfer video from your PC to Digital Camcorder Tape
    PowerProducer Express lets you transfer video clips and movies to the DV tape in your digital camcorder via the 1394 connection. This is a quick way to archive the video and save hard disk space for editing.
  • Burn a DVD directly from Digital Camcorder Tape
    To make a quick copy or backup of movies on DV tape, use PowerProducer Express to transfer the DV video directly to DVD in one step, without having to transfer the DV file to the hard drive. It's a great way to make copies for your family and friends without having to take the time to product a movie or slideshow.
  • Capture a Long Video and Split it into Smaller Clips
    PowerDirector's batch capture and scene detect features let you split long videos into smaller that are more manageable and easier to incorporate into movie timelines
  • Create Animated Videos
    The photo slideshow concept can be used to create animation movies. Connecting your DV or analog camera to AD FullCap allows you to use the snapshot feature to take photos that are saved directly to the hard drive. This makes a great animation interface for creating sequential shots that can be place in the PowerDirector timeline to create an animated movie.
  • Enhance Movies with Music and Sound Effects
    The sound clip library included on the Video Advantage CD can be used to enhance your videos with sound effects. With AudioSurgeon, you can also record and edit sounds that can be dropped into your video using PowerDirector's timeline interface.
