  • Not sure if this happens to you

    I have been using Edius 3.6 and 4.02 . The following happens while editing ,
    the footage(clips) will not go on to the line say (VA) or (V1) or (V2) which I want it go to, it even happens with the Audio also. In the end, I have to put the clip right at the end of the sequence , then drag it to the place I want to use,
    Also while editing a lot of clips in a sequence the timeline will add new video layer ,I have had 7 new layers and I have not ask to add theses layers.
    I hope I have explaned myself.
    this is so frustrating....... Why is it only doing it with edius I do not have this problem with Adobe , Avid etc?

    I really like editing on Edius even with all the pimples and spots. ;)

    One thing canopus could add to the next update to the interface display colour settings is 3 thing a lighter to darker adjustment, font size and colour like in PPRO2.

    Go to the left side of the timeline and if there is a little A or V highlighted, click on it and select clear all tracks and see if that solves your placement problems.

    AFA adding new tracks without asking, I have never heard of that.

    I think you will get your wish on the color settings.

      As Pat said, it sounds like you have a video track which is locked for use - try what he suggested and see.

      There's a way to make EDIUS automatically add tracks, when this lock is in place - it's related to the main Application Settings menu option "Add clips to mapped track". Sometimes the clip has nowhere to go, so to speak. In that case, it'll make a track automatically.

      As for GUI adjustments, you can change the interface colour now - it too is in the Application settings (v4.x). The font size is currently controlled by Windows itself.

        Thanks for the big help so far it is working.

          Unless you specifically want to "force" you video or audio into a specific track always make sure that you have no tracks mapped :)
