  • Questions about upgrading to 6.02

    I am using 5.51 at the moment, but now that 6.02 has arrived, the time might be good to move up.

    If I buy Edius 6, can I go straight to 6.02, or do I need 6.01 first?

    I appreciate that it is good practise to finish existing projects, but I have some ongoing projects in 5.51. Can I install Edius 6 over 5.51 and hope all will still be there to carry on working with these projects?

    Will I lose my FX user presets?

    keep a copy of the 5.51 project files just incase - remember the video files still stay the same!

      Do I have to install 6.01 first, before 6.02?

        I don't think so. Edius has always been, when two updates come so close to each other the second one usually has the fixes that the first had...I have v.6, and went straight to 6.02, so you should be ok to update, and the projects will open in v6, just that you will not be able to open them in v5 should you decide to revert back to v5.......But I don't see why you would want to go back anyways....v6 is GREAT

            Not sure if they remain,......I usually finish all my projects first before updating, and I think I still have most of them.....well, just checked an old project that was done in V5, and everything is still there, but, you have to launch it from the backup folder...I used the last backup icon...(right click, check time and date). If they are not in the effects folder, just copy them from the clips, and drag them back in place...think that is how I replaced some a while back

              With every Major version change basic Edius out of the box filters & effects remain.
              If blending or other custom variations are used in a project and in the new version they are not there or work different you'll loose them.
              If you have used any third party tools install them before you open your project, it still might be a hit or miss (with third party tools that is)

              Save you 6 project under a different name !

                  If you install 6 over 5.51 and the user presets are based on Edius filters and presets then they should all come across, they did on mine anyway
                  If you have third party FX then you will need to download the latest update for E6 and reinstall
                  ALL Mercalli filters on clips on old projects WILL need to be redone with Mercalli 2, indicated by a BLACK line above the clip, Mercalli 1 no longer works
                  Boris FX no longer work in E6
                  Hope that helps
