  • Edius Slow response to mouse clicks

    One of the changes in Edius 6 that has been mentioned in the past and complained about (myself included) is that in order to do something on a track, say insert a dissolve between two clips, you must select the track itself and it's not enough to just click on one of the clips. Until this day, I still find it very annoying and difficult to get used to, having to do that mouse move to the beginning of the track, select it, and move the mouse back to the clip to continue working. I do this hundreds of times a day.

    But this thread is not about that. My problem is the slow response time of Edius 6 to the track selections and I will explain:

    Say I have a few video and audio tracks stacked on top of each other and I make a cut on all of them in one spot (SHFT-C) and need a dissolve on all of the tracks - video and audio. (All tracks are unlinked). And I do not want all the tracks to be selected. (It's not a multicam edit). I also tried selecting all clips (double clicking a track and SHFT clicking) but it won't place a dissolve on all the clips).

    What I need to do is place my CTI on the cut, select the first video track and click ALT-1, then click the second track to select it and click ALT-1, and do the same for all the video and audio tracks.

    I am very fast with my hands and can do 6 tracks like this in about 3 seconds. Problem is that Edius is not so fast and doesn't recognize some clicks of the mouse so the track selection won't change sometimes and it will miss some transitions. (Some of the tracks that I click on in those 3 seconds won't get selected - and yes, I click hard enough that they SHOULD get selected). Making me have to go back to those and reselect to do the transition.

    You can try it out by quickly selecting track 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc.... up and down and see that Edius will miss some clicks.

    I hope I explained myself well. If not, I can make a video, showing the problem.

    Thanks.

    You don't have to select the track first to apply a transition.

      zvit,
      I've noticed this same problem. I know I've clicked those huge track headers (more than once) and the track still doesn't select.

      Unfortunately, it's not repeatable.

        Thanks Steve. I was surprised to see your videos. When I had asked about this in the past, I was answered by the staff that this is the way it works now with Edius 6. It must have been 6.00 I think. Maybe this was fixed since then and I just didn't know about it. This will save me lots of time!

        Another thing I just discovered.... You don't even have to move your CTI to the place you want a dissolve! You can just click on any clip on any track and do ALT-1.... and the dissolve will apply to that clip! This is really great.

        The selecting track issue still needs to be addressed though, like Rusty also said, sometimes (many times) you click on the track and it doesn't select.

          We have been improving some things since EDIUS 6.
          Sometimes little things get lost for documentation. :)


          I will try to look at the selecting tracks next week.

            Thanks Steve,
            My missed clicks see to only happen when I'm moving really quickly.
