PowerDirector is one of the best loved video editing tools on Windows. However, we found many Cyberlink PowerDirector users are facing the issues when opening MP4 video files in PowerDirector. In this article, we aim to show the reason and present the best way to import and edit MP4 files in Cyberlink PowerDirector
on Windows freely.
Why PowerDirctor failed to import MP4 clips? Actually, this is due to the MP4 files codec: PowerDirector prefers MPEG-4 and H.264 codecs instead of others. If your MP4 files are not compatible with PowerDirector, it's probably because of the different codec in a number of MP4 files as Cyberlink PowerDirector (even the latest PowerDirector 13) might not support all of these codecs. One solution to handling the problems is to convert/transcode unsupported MP4 videos to a format that Cyberlink PowerDirector works. MPEG-2 is a universal file that is supported by all PowerDirector versions. And to achieve the goal, you can get Brorsoft Video Converter
Overall, it just the right one which is able to convert all kinds of MP4 video clips and other MKV, MOV, MXF, Prores, FLV, F4V, WMV, VOB, MP4, AVCHD, MTS, MOD, Apple ProRes and so on to PowerDirector supported formats efficiently.
