  • Vale DV Storm (and all the chatter)

    I am disappointed to see the old forums vanish. I appreciate the need to sell new products and no doubt promotion of EDIUS makes good business sense. Possibly there is no further need to discuss Storm Edit or Raptor but the "old" forums did offer an opportunity to exchange views and techniques that went beyond Canopus' immediate proprietary interests.

    Canopus had many loyal customers who grew with the product base through exchange of experience and ideas. Thomson / Grass Valley should at least consider inclusion of a general video related discussion forum that is not necessarily tied to an immediate Grass Valley product plan.

    Today's amateurs have a way of becoming tomorrow's professionals. A narrow forum scope is unfriendly to the newbies. They will likely go somewhere for discussion. They will likely end up using Final Cut Pro instead of Edius.

    Think about it.

    If users end up using EDIUS, they can come here. If they end up using Final Cut, they can go to Apple's forum.

    No one forum is going to be the all-encompassing area. The ones that try have a bad tendency to get bogged down with too much information traffic. The goal with this new forum is to keep things easily accessible with a high "information density."

    There are a number of good general video editing discussion boards out there for general discussion.

          And I think that'll be it for this thread - the original poster's issue is answered in our FAQ section.
