  • Should I finish project started in Edius 3 before I install the 4.5 upgrade?

    I have a project underway that I stared in Edius Pro 3. Should I complete that project in E.3 before I install my 4.5 upgrade?

    Also, I've seen posts about compatibility with Edius 4 and Imaginate. Is there still a problem, or is this fixed with 4.5?

    Thanks for your replies.

    Usual advice here is to complete a project before upgrading. It is ths the safe, low risk option.

    I believe that another version is due out within the week which is supposed to resolve the Imaginate and TMPro issues - that is what I am waiting for before upgrading.

      Thanks drgagx.
      I JUST got my upgrade in the mail yesterday. I'd actually like to use 4.5 to finish the project because of the upgraded features I could really benefit from. But I agree that being safer than sorry is always a better result.

      I trust I'll be able to download a free update or patch for the forthcoming Imaginate fix.

        4.52 should be out in the next few days (yes it is free) and the Imaginate problem is fixed. I always try to wait until a project is done before upgrading, in case there is a problem.
        Often once it is saved in the upgrade, you cannot open it in lower versions.

        However, I do understand wanting to gain the new features. If you do decide to upgrade, I would open the project in your present version and save it by a different name and then use the new file to open in the upgrade. That at least gives you a chance to open the original in the old version should the need arrive.

          Now why didn't I think of that! Goes to show you why this forum is the best! You've replied on one of my prior posts also. Thanks again for your time and comments.

            I've had no problems upgrading to 4.5 in the middle of a project, but give yourself some time to learn the new interface. Menues are in different places, some keystrokes are not the same, trim window is completely re-done, etc. If your on deadline, I would wait.
