Cyberlink Director Suite 365 is designed as an all-in-one solution for media production, only compatible with Windows operating systems, and contains four main software: PowerDirector; PhotoDirector; ColorDirector; and Audio Director. Each program has its specific use as a media production software but they’re all designed to work together to provide an entire platform for content creatives.

Aimed to cover the range of photo, audio, and video media each software is bespoke in its approach. PowerDirector is a video editor and now has in-built Artificial Intelligence (AI) smart-learning tools. PhotoDirector, as the name suggests, is an image editor that also handles layers-based photo editing. ColorDirector is a color grading app designed for use on videos that includes options like green screening and motion tracking masks. AudioDirector is an audio editor and features standard tools like sound mixing, punch and roll recording for voice-overs, and features some AI-powered tools like wind removal and de-reverb, too.
