"For most people, video editing is the sole proprietorship of Hollywood professionals. They're the ones who can take mountains of footage and splice it together into a film worthy to grace the silver screen. Those professionals use advanced products such as Apple's Final Cut Pro and Adobe's Creative Suite. Those products and the skill it takes to use them properly are expensive and time consuming. For the rest of us, there is PowerDirector by CyberLink."
