Since its launch in 2005, CyberLink PowerDirector has been one of the best pieces of software for video editing. It was previously a Windows-only program, but as of December 2020, it’s also available for Mac. 

The Mac version is more than just a port of the Windows version, as it’s been carefully designed to work smoothly on Apple hardware. This puts it into competition with the range of existing software aimed at Mac users, including iMovie, which is an even longer running app. iMovie was first launched in 1999 and has been updated regularly since. Since iMovie is developed by Apple, it’s also well suited to working on Mac computers.
