Course Conclusion


Louw23 July 2020

Good course for beginners. I was expecting to learn some new stuff, or ways to make nice looking (travel) videos, but it's basically just the posibilites of PowerDirectors (nothing wrong with that).

Malcolm10 April 2020

Great course for me. I am very weak in the production end and this course is giving me a great foundation to build on.

Ken29 March 2020

Good introduction to Power Director. The nstructor did a nice job of covering the basics in easy to follow steps. The course is a bit dated now that Power Director 18 is out, but I'm expecting a lot will carry over to the latest version.

Mike21 March 2020

Great course. Phil does a great job of explaining the concepts for editing videos with this software. Took me from novice to being very comfortable with editing my videos. Got me up to speed very quickly.

Tim8 January 2020

Poor / Average. Could be better. 1. The course starts to teach on advanced subjects (like 360 degrees Video Editing) without explanation first the basics. 2. Lesson 21 (Quick Tips for better Video) Very poor and too little. 3. Too little examples how to use titles, like moving title, title with background (like on the news or in the course itself). 4. Not enough attention and examples for how working with DirectZone. 5. How to create lines, arrows or other objects, for example in order to point out something in the clip. 6. How to copy edited material from one timeline in PowerDirector to be uses in other timeline in other work file? 7. What about markers to place on the timeline to jump immediately to the spot marked. 8. I could not find anywhere in the course how to contact for assistance. The instructor just says to post, ask questions, feedbacks but never provide his contact details. 9. Must say, great, clear and pleasant voice and explanation.

Daniel4 January 2020

Lots of great information without getting so far into the weeds that it was incomprehensible! Excellent overview that applies to multiple versions of PowerDirector.

Judy5 September 2019

This course is a terrible course for a true novice as he goes too fast and expects that the learner has basic knowledge of Power Director. A total waste of time.

Christine13 August 2019

I knew some. I probably need an intermediate course. Plus, I use a lot of photos along with videos. I would love some training on how to use both.

Shane11 August 2019

This course was decently informative. I think it's structured a little wrong. This could be just my preference though. We are learning how to edit 360 video before we are even learning how to import our media files. One other point, when he was demonstrating the PiP on the 360 video edit, he said that we could add text to it but didn't give a quick demonstration on how to do it. Just a couple of my thoughts. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us.

Deborah4 August 2019

Yes, it is a good course. I'm learning a lot. It is a lot and takes a lot of time, which is evident in that it has taken me over 6 months to go through things, and I have been working out some things on my own.

Chris5 May 2019

Great course. I am meandering my way through and learn something new with each video. Thank you. Great value.

Larry13 April 2019

The constant and fast cursor movement was not necessary - a more deliberate movement is all you need if the explanation is clear.

Kelvin1 April 2019

This tutor is so easy to understand i have looked at other videos on this subject and found them to be a bit confusing this is very straight forward and caters for every level i would highly recommend this course to all, once again thank you and keep up the great work

Manik17 March 2019

It is a very nice and simple tutorial about Powerdirector 15 for anybody who is the first time learner.

Jerry20 September 2018

Very good overall. Clear, understandable presentation. Some topics could use a little more depth. As a complete newbie, I expected a different section order. Specifically, I expected to learn about the basic editing tools before diving into 360 degree video etc.
