I have grown quite fond of Cyberlink Power Director for making a video montage. I like how you can edit the film, cut and splice it and all add text to the frames in the film. I have to do some videos for my work from time to time and these are normally done with photos and not filming. In the power director, I can add the images and make them look like a film using the different special effects the program has. The only thing that I don't really like about it is when you want to add music to the background. I can only add one song and not several in the background so if the images take longer to display the song will repeat over and over again. I'm still trying to figure out how to splice a few songs together so I can add them to the film.
I don't do this for a living and it is mostly for fun. So I don't spend a lot of time on the program. That is why I like this program because it is so easy to use.
