CyberLink PowerProducer is a software program used for creating video and slideshow discs. It is run on the Windows operating system and designed for DV and HDV camcorder users.

PowerProducer can capture video from DV and HDV camcorders and TV tuner cards. It can also import video from several different digital video file formats, such as AVCHD. The video editor features Hollywood-style movie production tools for home users. The software includes several professionally designed HD menu templates that can be used to quickly make a video disc into a professional quality movie. It provides authoring tools for adding interactive menus, music, and themes to movies. It also includes features such as a "Magic Movie Wizard," which automatically touches up digital video content and fixes shaky video, poor lighting, and red eye issues. The wizard can also be used to apply user-selected themes and add pan and zoom effects to photos.

PowerProducer's "Right-to-Disc" feature supports burning videos directly to a disc without first storing them on the hard drive. This allows users to capture real-time videos from a camcorder or other video input source and burn them directly to a disc. These videos can be saved as standalone movies or included as part of a larger movie production. PowerProducer can also edit existing movies that are saved to rewritable discs. Its built-in disc utilities can erase, copy, export to a disc image, or finalize discs for video player compatibility. PowerProducer can also save disc files in the proprietary .RDF format, which can be reopened for later editing. Once completed, movies can be burned to DVD, Blu-ray, and other disc formats.

CyberLink PowerProducer is a useful program for capturing, editing, and producing personal movies. It provides professional production tools and convenient disc burning features. It is also a good option for watching movies and slideshows on home entertainment systems and for sharing videos with friends and family. Although it’s not as powerful as other video editors, it’s a reasonable option for the price.
