    What Dave said is very true but be careful.

    If you are editing your HD footage in a SD 16:9 project if you you do any titles, PiP, or Layout tool work you will need to check it when you switc back to a HD project and make sure they are sized correctly. :)

    You can edit in SD with DVStorm2's output, once you're ready to go back to an HD format (or HDV tape) you can switch the project to OHCI HDV and render out.

    Of course the downside is not being able to view your material (while you edit) in HD resolutions.

    The NX Express is one great set of hardware.

    For HDV you would need a standard Firewire port (The storm doesn't have one).

    The storm would be bypassed completely because it can't output HD.

    DVStorm2 wont do HD. You need NX card for that. So - you need to upgrade your system to EDIUS NX.

    Just wanted to chime in. I am still running my Storm2 with E4.5 and it still chugs along great in SD.

    I have also been using FCP for a while now. I really miss th RT of that Strom Card. I'm seriously considering coming back to Edius for my HDV productions.

    PS I noticed that I am now a "junior" again. Wish that worked in real life. Any way, I have been using Edius and been on this board since Edius 1.0. What's that 4 or 5 years? Time flies when your broke and having fun.

    I mean that if I change my OS to Win Xp 64-bit (which I think it uses full ammount of RAM) my DVStorm2 card won't work?
    Absolutely true ... ZERO device drivers for now.

    Message to Glass Valley ...

    I think I have seen enough people asking about WinXP Pro 64, Vista 32 or Vista 64 .... so why not have a sticky up on this forum that says -

    a) EDIUS hardware will NOT work under those operating systems
    b) EDIUS software itself could work - but no support for now

    There are ways to have Windows acknowledge greater amounts of RAM via the boot.ini file - I don't have the instructions on me, so you'll have to trawl the internet (or perhaps even this forum).

    The driver pack (Canopus DV Driver) is updated fairly regularly with every major EDIUS release, so you can always pull from the EDIUS distribution. On it's own, the DVStorm drivers up in the downloads area is dated around 05/12/2006. I say "around" simply because I'm not sure of the actual build date of the DVStorm driver itself. You can get this from the readme file included in the package.

    Any chance the Win XP drivers work under Win 2003 Server R2?
    I'm really not happy about the 2Gb RAM limit in XP (already got 4Gb installed)

    Okay, I checked the DVStorm 2 Installation Disk, but I think it's got the old 9/10/2002 drivers. Does anybody know if Canopus has released more recent Win XP drivers before the DVStorm2 got discontinued?

    There is a serial number on the card. (sticker) It is also on the registration card for the Storm card that came in the box

    How do you register a product that hasn't been installed yet?

    (I don't have the DVStorm2 Pro version by the way, just the DVStorm2 version)
    is there a serial number or registration code in the box or something?

    As always: in the Canopus download section (registration required) or on the installation discs (Storm, Edius)
