  • Admin vs. User accounts

    am using Edius 5.1 on laptop computers. I have installed the software and configured to use K2 servers.

    The problem is everything works fine when logged in as an administrator, but when I switch to a user account, it does not show the NRCS option and won't let me adjust anything unless logged in as a admin.

    The box in the AES Config tool for allow users to change and create placeholders is checked. I don't see any other options regarding this.


    I need to train people on the workflow and can't do that without workstations. Having everyone log in as administrators is not an option.

    Surely there is a way around this or a setting I am missing.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You likely need to create a Power User account that has most of the Administrator privileges but not all. That is what I have done on my system, created account called Editor.
