  • From Avid to Edius

    Has anyone made this transition?

    I learnt all my editing on Avid - I love Avid, but the software only version is too buggy and is not flexible with multi formats like edius. A couple of things I did love about Avid though, was, the trimming modes, the batch capture workflow, and when you pressed STOP or pause, it stopped EXACTLY on the frame you pressed stop on, Edius stops one or two frames after...

    Does anyone use trimming in Edius regularly? I havn't really tried learning it yet, but I know its a powerful technique for precise editing and can save time.

    Anyone?

    These two apps are pretty much different, even if they call themselves NLE's...what kind of work do you do? Docus? Music Videos? Corporate stuff? It all depends.

    As for Edius, I use the trimming tools regulary and it works fine. There are no "standardized tools" so you have to do everything by the F6 window or via keyboard shortcuts.

      Hey Dave,

      Yeah they are different - I agree. And don't get me wrong, Edius all the way :)

      As for use, I edit Coporate gigs, Weddings and the odd TV spot. I used to work at Netwrok TEN, that's where I learnt Avid - Was used for editing AFL commercials and overlay for Morning TV shows.

      I'm gonna have a good look at trimming in Edius today, glad to know you use it.

        Edius beats Avid for weddings any day of the week :)

        I think of Avids as better for high end music videos and film work, although that's shifting now down to "lower end" NLE's.

        I think you'll be happy with Edius instead of Avid full time.

          I hardly use trim window

          C, N, M, Alt+N and Alt+M are my most used keys

            For broadcast work I often use Avid, simply because that's what the client dictates. But personally I don't hesistate to use Edius if I have any choice in the matter. That's not to say that Avid doesn't do some things better: the way Avid handles tape names (and Edius does not) is the most obvious case in point.

              Anton - care to share a quick rundown on how you use those keys to accomplish trimming? I don't find the trim interface to be particularly intuitive, so I would be grateful to hear how you accomplish it using shortcuts.

              Thanks

                Same here, I don't use the trim window much, and I use the same keys as Anton, I change a few in the keyboard shortcut to fit my needs, just drag your playhead to a point where you want to cut and hit ALT+N and see what happen, try the same with the other keys, for precise trim, I use the wheel mouse to advance frame by frame.

                  N = trim clip inpoint at timeline cursor position
                  Alt+N = trim clip inpoint at timeline cursor position and close gap created

                  M = trim clip outpoint point at timeline cursor position
                  Alt+M = trim clip outpoint point at timeline cursor position and close gap created

                  C = cut clip at timeline cursor position

                  Shift+Alt+drag clip = clip and all clips to its right will move as long as you drag in any direction (I use this a lot)
