  • Edited for a week now Edius is frozen HELP!

    I have been editing my first project on Edius for a week. I started the program up this am and got a message at the bottom of the screen: Device does not support current format, switching to software mode. What does this mean?

    History:
    I loaded MXF video that came from the Canon Utility. I have two 80 minute clips. Now there is a lightning symbol thru each clip in the bin. The video and audio in the timeline has slanted lines through it and the video in the monitor is a black and white checkerboard. The video will not play like it has for the past few days. HELP!
    Thanks, Dave

    Addition to the problem

    At the bottom of the timeline it says my two clips are offline. What does this mean?

      Problem fixed

      I caused the problem myself!
      Earlier today I was loading more video clips to the hard drive thru the Canon Utility and just to be more organized, I added a new folder into the path of the clips that won't play on the timeline. DUH!
      So I just realized that Edius cannot find the files because I changed the path.
      I changed it back and all is fine.
      Completely changing to a new editor is complicated enough without making stupid mistakes. Sorry for taking anyone's time on this.

        You need to do a bit of reading or searching as these are basic things. That message means nothing. It generally means if you had an external monitor attached that it old not show the timeline. If you re in OHCI it wld always appear. You can turn it off if you like.

        Offline means the location of the files have been moved. You just need to relink them.

          Device not supporting current format simply means whatever output hardware you have selected it does not support the format/frame resolution you are currently working in.

          For example output set to OHCI which does not support HD. If you had an HD hardware output card then the message would not appear.

          Software mode can be quite useful as it allows UHD to be displayed on a 2nd PC monitotor which may be only 1920 by 1200 resolution, for instance on a laptop via HDMI out.

          For Apple devices you need 44.1KHz audio out, to get this settting you will have to export H264 via QuickTime, as the Edius exporter only supports 48KHz audio sampling rate.

            Your Answer

            Mike, thanks for the reply. This learning curve is steep even though I have gone thru 2 tutorials and used the trial version for a month.
