  • edius 4.54 to after effects

    Hello everyone.Ive been a adobe user for many years until 2 years ago I swaped over to Edius and am now on edius broadcast version 4.54. I still like the intergration of the adobe products and have now started to get a grip on after effects cs3.So my question is whats the best workflow for short or long clips in the edius timeline for both pal sd footage and hd footage namely dvcprohd 720 and 1080i to export over and into after effects and then return with the rendered footage.Its all very well feeling a little more confident in an adobe programme such as after effects but getting to and from edius which is my next problem .
    N.B. both my sd and hd footage is in the canopus hq codec

    This is my experience using AE with Edius, I'm usually working with HDV (1440 x 1080), either interlaced or progressive.

    I always use Edius HQ codec for export since it supports alpha channels and is of high quality. I used to use AE6.5 since it it co-exists happily with Edius open at the same time, however since HDV uses Rec 709 colour space AE6.5 is not best suited since exports from Edius to AE6.5 and back suffer from poor reds, orange and pink colours due to the mismatch in colour space. At least that is my experience.

    So now I use AE7 because I can chose Rec 709 colour space in project settings and colours now remain true when brought back into Edius.

    So for Edius footage there are two things to remember, first the project settings in AE7 need to be 709 color space and second, when exporting with HQ codec choose "RGB has ITU-R BT.601 range" and when it is back in Edius the colours will be as they were when it left (unless you did colour correction in AE of course!) For me I am usually doing motion stabilising or work with alpha channels.

    The only downside is that unlike AE6.5 it will not co-exist happily with Edius open at the same time.

        If you use AECS3, you can export a timeline with clips using AAF export in Edius and open in After Effects, may save a lot of render business - this does not work with AE7 sorry to say.
