  • Audio Mixer always on top

    Is there a way to make the audio mixer NOT be always on top. If I open up something like the colour wheel, it ends up under the mixer. The same goes for other apps, like the dvd printing software.

    I've looked in the settings, but I can't see it.

    I would close the mixer because keeping it open is a big no no

    it will drain your buffer to 0 and keep it at 0, killing realtime performance

    what Edius needs is a decent VU meter, I am sure that is already in feature requests

      I hadn't noticed a hit in performance, and I don't use it that often. I'll close it down and see if I note a difference.

        Well blow me, if I didn't remove the audio mixer, do some editing, went and made a cup of tea to come back and find edius has frozen!!!!!!! I also had cdex open which has also frozen. Open up task manager and that froze.......

        First time this has happened to me since updating to 4.51c.

          I’m not sure what you are referring to, but EDIUS already has both Peak and VU meters.

            I am referring to a proper VU/Peak meter that is not part of the audio mixer, one that can be kept open without performance hit, one that can be sized and placed where I want, one like I had in Speed Razor

              You can stack the audio mixer along with other windows. They snap together.

              I haven't seen the audio mixer cause much of a hit (unless you use an older system). The buffer just seems to not go all the way when it's open, and the reason for that has been explained a few times already.

              Here's a sample:

                I have never seen any performance hit when using the ‘status’ display (Timecode + audio meter).


                When you select VU mode in the audio mixer, the audio meter in ‘status’ also displays it in VU units.


                But I have to give you the other points: can’t move it, can’t size it like in Speed Razor

                  yes, the staus VU meter does not cause a performance hit but it is too hard to see even at its largest size since my preview window is small

                  the graduation markers are too hard to see and the VU meter should be upright like in Speed Razor, like in all my Betacam machines, like in Soundforge etc

                      hmmm, when I have my mixer open, none of my multi PIP or Xplode play in realtime, playback stops, the buffer is on 0 before it hits the transition and effects

                        I just received SF9 and the VU meters are excellent, just like the SR ones

                          There is a simple answer to this problem - if you use an RME soundcard (brilliant kit anyway, highly recommended). It comes with a utility called DIGICheck which allows you to have a VU/Peak meter permanently running. In fact you can also simultaneously have a spectrum analyzer, phase scope and goodness knows what else, all of which are highly customizable in terms of scaling, dynamics, colour and on-screen position. The beauty is that all the display data is calcluated in RME's on-board DSP so there is virtually no CPU overhead, however complicated you want to get. You can literally run it alongside Edius without any worries:

                          http://www.wideangles.tv/images/DIGICheck.jpg

                          In this case I have a VU/peak and loudness meter running on the extreme right hand side.

                          Slightly off topic - why does no-one offer an option for PPM meter scaling? It just happens to be the ONLY accepted broadcast standard in Europe (and I suspect Australia too).

                            How can I move the position of the Timecode on screen display to a lower part of the screen?

                              Go to SETTINGS>APPLICATION SETTINGS>CUSTOMIZE>OVERLAY and on the right side under VIEW you can position it anywhere you like as well as make it small, medium, or large size.
