  • Work Group 8 to Edius 9

    I own the latest incarnation of Edius Work Group 8. I am confused about moving to 9. The reason I spent the bigger money on Work Group was so I could take advantage of the feature of being able to set the editing resolution to half or even lower while editing.... making 4K and 60P editing without stuttering or jamming (which is gold and a must have )
    My questions are: 1. Does Edius 9 have this feature? or do I have to go to workgroup 9? Upgrading to work group 9 from work group 8 is pricey. $379 US. I understand the Edius 9 has many new feature which allow a better flowing work flow. At this time I am only a little time editor at home and I don't need any global or satellite feature that the pros use. Does anyone have some advise for me on this matter. Thanks, Tom

    The resolution drop down thing is only in Workgroup version. If you feel like you need it to avoid stuttering in playback, you should stick to the Workgroup version.

    If you prefer the new features in Edius 9 (as HDR), but cannot afford the Workgroup version, you most probably end up using the proxy mode if your hardware cannot playback your material smoothly.

      Thank You Captain. That answers my question about 9. When you say edit in proxy mode, would you mind telling me what that means? Perhaps that is an option for me.

        Proxy mode is a mode that lets Edius create lower quality proxy files to edit with. You then switch out of proxy mode when you are ready to export.

        In order for this to work simply have to add the proxy mode button to the timeline tool bar so you can switch modes.

        This is a feature that is available in the Edius 8 version you have so you can try it out before deciding if the upgrade to workgroup is necessary (it is a feature available in both pro and workgroup).
