      I agree, a really nice site, I just tested three really groovy audio modules, all of which crash Edius stone dead. These are standard freeware vst's proving once more that Edius desperately needs the VST bridge fixing.

      Like a dog with a bone - I'm not gonna let this rest till someone says it's being attended to. It makes professional editors lives a misery having to swap applications, making dummy interchange files day in and day out just because the thing doesn't do what it says on the packaging. VST support - NOT.

        There is no excuse for a professional editing system not to have rock solid VST plug-in compatibility. Or, for that matter, DirectX, for applications like Sound Forge.

        I agree. I think we should not let this issue rest until it is satisfactorally resolved. Same for good printed manuals and training materials.

          VSTs?

          When I first installed Edius, about 3 years ago, I put a dozen VSTs in the plug-in folder. Edius crashed many times and was quite frustrating. I was amazed that tech support figured out so quickly how to make Edius crash proof. Just take everything out of the VST plug-in folder. Worked like a champ! When I called back to ask how I could use them, they said, try just putting one in at a time to see which one causes the problem. After a week of finding out that 100% of them, including the Sound Soap that shipped with the program, lead to "...Sorry but Edius has to shut down..." I called back and asked if there were any VSTs that worked with Edius and was told they all work, unless they don't.

          Yep, render the audio out to a wav, open it in Sony Vegas, clean up the audio, render back to wav, import into the Edius project. Getting old.

          The only other crash I've seen from Edius is some mp3 files don't make the program happy. So, audio seems to be the thread for how to take the program down.

            While I agree that th VST plugin needs lots of work so that all plugins work, there are in fact some that do. In the old forum we had a thread that was dedicated to ones that users had working in one of their systems. Sorry I did not copy it.

              I also agree that the VST bridge needs work.
              I looked at the info for 4.5 on the canopus website. There will be aaf support. That means that you can just take your project via aaf to an audio application, sweeten it and export AAf from the audio app (Protools, Pyramix) and open it back in Edius.
              AAF support in Edius wil open a whole new world for Edius projects.
              I look forward to give 4.5 a spin to test this new function.

                I have a few VST Plugins that work that were recommended in the old forum. They aren't the greatest but they don't crash Edius right away. I have learned that if I use them on an audio track that Edius will crash on exit so whenever I use one on my audio tracks I will tweak them to my liking and render to a WAV file and replace the original audio with the fixed audio.

                There are a few VSTs that work .... they just aren't the ones I would really want but I put them to use!

                  Philip,

                  Which VST's are you having luck with?
                  Any from the site above?

                  I tip-toe around with C3 Multi Band Compressor daily. The effects are very nice and there is no lag.

                  I see why GV/Canopus went with VST, there's tons of free ones out there. If only they would build a more usable bridge.

                    vst plugs

                    I've read the many concerns edius users have about VST plugs but they were all from ealry 2007 which makes me wonder, have the problems with VST's been fixed in Edius 4.5x ?

                    thanks

                        That's really a shame since audio is just as important as video in just about any project.

                        I recently bought the Mike Downey complete edius training 4.5 and noted in there he says that edius supports VST plugs.... sounds like that's not too accurate.

                          when I finish an edit, I export the timeline to a new wav (fast) and open it in Soundforge9 where I hit it with the wavehammer and Noise Reduction where required, very fast and way better than VST (in SF I have subframe control, in Edius you only have frame level control, this is often not good enough for fixing audio)

                          then I bring the fixed audio back into Edius timeline on an empty A track and turn off the audio on all other tracks, brilliant broadcast quality audio

                            If you check some of the other threads you will see some people using certain sets of VST plug ins with no problems, so it does support them. However, there are also many that report problems with other sets of VST's. Very hit or miss.
