London, UK, 20 September 2012 - CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), a provider of innovative media creativity solutions, today released its first professional solution for video color grading, ColorDirector. Designed with ease-of-use in mind, ColorDirector enables users to intuitively correct colors, adjust tonality, and change regional colors with advanced motion tracking and selection masks.
ColorDirector is aimed at opening up an area of video post-production previously confined to professional movie-makers to advanced amateurs and video hobbyists who are looking to take their video projects to the next level by incorporating color correction and enhancement. Even seasoned professionals will be interested in some of ColorDirector's unique features such as motion tracking masks. In a world where more than 72 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube each minute, everyone can now create content that can easily be viewed across the globe, and budding filmmakers and professionals alike are seeking new tools to make their works achieve the highest quality possible.
"There is more video being created-and viewed-by more people than ever before, and as users become more experienced and proficient with video manipulation, they are looking for tools with which to create more sophisticated projects," said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink. "One of the best ways to inject life and inspiration into your video projects is by manipulating color, and ColorDirector offers a powerful, intuitive and affordable way to achieve this."
