  • Edius Noob

    Hey guys n gals. I could really use some help. I'm trying to figure out a few things about Edius. The first thing is how do i add a transition to the beginning of a clip ... I cut off about lets say 5 min in to the clip and try to put in a transition but edius will not let me. The other is sometimes when i put effects or transitions sometimes they seem to affect the footage below it which drive me up the wall. And finally what is that other bar that is below the video and audio track? I normally work with adobe premiere pro cs3 so edius looks like its from another world.
    any and all help would be welcomed.

    To put a transition at beginning of clip, edius uses a "mixer track" which is joined to the video track, but under it. Place a disolve or any transition on this track and adjust like any normal transition.
    OR you can access the "mixer" on the left by expanding the video track using the little arrow. Then you can place nodes or points on the mixer line (sometimes refered to as rubber band) which can be adjusted up or down to change the transparency of the video.

    Having two or more video tracks stacked on top of eachother means that any video wich overlaps the video under it will be visable when the top track has a transition on it, or any form of transparency.

    Hope this helps :)

      First off, welcome.

      Second, there's no question that we all haven't asked ourselves or on the forum, so a search may help.

      To your question... there's a couple of answers, so you'll ultimately do as you like best. So, you can...

      Add a black Color Matte at the beginning and add a transition between it and your clip, or...

      Use the Key Track (gray bit below the audio track in a V/A track) and... 1) add a transition directly, or 2) use the the Transparency Rubberband (blue line in the Key Track), or...

      When you find the new "Fade" buttons you'll forget everything I mentioned above and say omg!

        Ok...

        In the A/V Tracks you have video on top, audio just below it, and the small thin area below the audio is the keyer track.

        When you place a filter on a track you place it on the video itself and when you use a keyer you place the keyer in the keyer track.

        Why are they separate? If you place transitions between tracks the keyer track of each clip joins together into one keyer track.

        This allows you to place a keyer on more than one clip at a time and treat the clips as one long clip.


        To add a fade in all you have to do is add a dissolve to the keyer track at the start of the clip. You can do this as long as there is no keyers in that track.

        If there is a keyer you can then use the black clip before the first clip method described earlier :)

          I thought I saw something like that - nice to see Edius finally regaining features some of us missed from the RaptorEdit days!

          While we're on the subject of improvements, I see Edius now uses just one icon when minimized to the taskbar instead of three, as some of us said should be changed from version one. Looks like someone has been listening to users, which is reassuring -- but many problems could have been avoided from the start by simply following the Windows interface design guidelines...

            Thanks for the info. Edius seems to be a lot faster than adobe in many aspects and fewer random crashes. Hopefully lynda.com will make a training series.

            What kills me is the speed comparasion things take forever in adobe that only take seconds if that in edius. I'm running Pentium D 3.40Ghz 3GB of DDR2 667mhz 6 hard drives 3 of them are sata 3.0 120GB, 320Gb and a 500GB the other 3 are EIDE 60Gb, 120Gb and 250GB Geforce 8500 GT 512mb ram ... go fig.

              What... no RAID with FX1 footage??? On old-school P4??? Nice!

              No surprise the performance diff over Adobe.
