ATI Graphics Card Buyer's Guide 2006, Part II

Tools And Software, Continued

Power Director 4 is a video-editing suite consisting of four modules. As the name implies, the capture module can import movies and sounds from DV, TV, webcams, microphones and CD and then save them in the AVI, MPEG1 or MPEG2 formats.

The Edit module allows you to arrange and synchronize video, images, sounds and effects. It also offers a selection of transitions and image effects, as well as superimposable titles. An audio mixer and voice-over recording feature round the module off, enabling users to add audio commentary to documentary-style movies. Power Director 4 adds a few new features, such as the chapter tool and the Magic tools, which can improve image and sound quality of movies, and offer basic editing functionality.

The Produce module lets users convert the result of the previous steps into a Mini-DVD, DVD, VCD or SVCD. Additionally, the movies can also be saved as DV-AVI, Windows AVI, MPEG1 or MPEG2 files, played back to DV tape, or turned into a streaming file.

Sapphire does not include the Burn module. Instead, the button links to a product update page on Cyberlink's website.
