CyberLink Launches CREATE Video Challenge
Sharpen Your Video Editing Skills and Win Fantastic Prizes
London, UK — 17 December, 2012 — CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), a provider of innovative media creation solutions, recently unveiled a new video contest entitled “CREATE Video Challenge” that will encourage PowerDirector users to hone and improve their video editing skills.
CREATE Video Challenge consists of a series of engaging and interactive video editing contests that will run for a period of nine months, from December 6, 2012 until September 5, 2013. One video editing challenge will be revealed each month. At the beginning of each campaign, CyberLink will provide a sample video with an accompanying demo that describes how it was made while encouraging participants to use the same techniques when creating their own videos.
The video samples and tutorials are made using one or more software solutions from CyberLink’s Creative Director Family, a series of content creation tools for editing videos and photos, color adjustment and sound design. The sample videos are also published on DirectorZone where users can view the final production along with a timeline. This is another option that provides users with a social forum to learn how the videos were made and hone their own skills and development.
“CyberLink is more committed than ever to support the large and fast growing number of people who choose to express their creativity through videos,” said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink. “We are excited to introduce the CREATE video challenge as an educational and rewarding complement to our other initiatives, such as the recent launch of our Director family of creative software, and our funding and support of DirectorZone.com, an online community of nearly 3 million creative enthusiasts.”
This month’s challenge involves the creation of a Tilt-shift video. With PowerDirector 11, you no longer need expensive hardware to create that miniature-look. Participants can turn buildings and cities into miniatures in motion with the tilt-shift video effect! Keep your results tasteful, because at the end of each challenge, we will award winners with the best results.
Participants have the chance to win fantastic prizes including CyberLink Director Suite, PowerDirector 11 Ultimate Suite, PowerDirector 11 Ultimate, PowerDirector 11 Ultra, goodies sponsored by DTS, and many more.
