  • Realtime Transitions

    I haven't been on the forum here for over a year since I upgraded my machine to the specs listed in my signature and the upgrade to Edius NX. I have been using the Explode transitions in some of my projects and I'm a bit confused if I'm set up correctly. The product description says real time transitions or something to that effect. In other words, I get the impression that it means I can drag a transition to my video clip and see it in real time without waiting for it to be rendered. When I use a transition like the camera, jet fighter or dice, I have to render it or else my machine stops with each progression of the transition. Am I not set up correctly or am I not understanding what the Edius 3 or Explode is implying?

    Xplode is not a realtime product.
    But with the nvidia and ati render Hack it could be made realtime on some systems.
    That was if :it was setup correctly and you had a good video card.
    I think you can do a search because this was brought up and answered in detail

      Realtime Transitions

      I might be wrong on the Explode part, but I'm referring to the transitions that appear on one of the pallets that come up with Edius 3. In particular, the 3D transitions. Do these not require rendering to view them? I had built my dual processor machine with this in mind so that I could just drag any of the transitions in place and view them at real time without rendering.

        Well all other transition run realtime. There might be something wrong with your machine.

          There are two flavours of EDIUS transitions (if we ignore SMPTE transitions).

          1. EDIUS FX
          2. Xplode for EDIUS/Xplode Pro

          EDIUS FX transitions should offer realtime playback on even modest systems. Xplode for EDIUS/Xplode Pro transitions do not offer realtime playback, unless you are using the GPU hardware "hack" - and even then, it's still not guaranteed.

          The properties/options window for your transition should tell you if it's EDIUS FX or Xplode.

            Ok, I just wanted to be sure I wasn't missing out on a feature. I think what you are saying is most of the Explode transitions that are available in the pallet need rendering. I'm sure my machine has sufficient grunt for the standard ones and all is working as advertised.
            Thanks for your response.

              download the "hack" here:

              http://webpages.charter.net/hyperism...idiaXPRO45.exe

              Run it twice and select both the Xplode Edius and the Xplode Pro "stages" folders for install.

              Then go into both those Xplode folders at the top level and run the FXConfig.exe -- in the 3d tab choose ATI hardware renderer and then click "config" and choose (in your case) "Radeon X850 - Direct 3d T&L HAL"

              Now launch Edius and do some testing. You may find that your real-time is a lot peppier, or not. I've found that starting playback a few seconds behind the Xplode transition allows the Edius playback buffer to charge sufficiently to play through the transition.

              Your card is one of the ones that is supposed to still work well, so hopefully this will result in some better performance for you.

                Ok, thanks J. I'll download it tomorrow but I need to finish a video project before I add it to the editor machine. That might be another week or so.
                I'll let ya know how it works.

                  This shouldn't hurt you at all...if you don't feel comfortable, just delete the 2 .dll files from your Stages folder and you will be fine. Nothing's written to the registry, only 2 files are extracted to your Xplode Pro stages directory.

                    I certainly do trust what you're saying Storm. I just don't trust how my specific machine will act when I do that. I would really prefer to get this project done and on DVD before changing or adding stuff to it. Been down that road before and I just don't have the time to recreate what I have so far. 8-)

                      You're right on that account :)

                        I tried the downloaded file and when I tried to run it , I got the message that " The dll file is corrupted" and then the program closed down. Any ideas on this?
