  • Is Edius 6 compatible with Windows 10?

    Just got Edius 9 on a new Windows 10 computer, but I'll need to open old projects from E6 every once in while. I know I can open E6 projects on E9, but I used a lot of Quicktime Animation alpha graphics in my old projects that no longer work with E9. But I would also like to update old computer to Windows 10 as long as I know E6 will still work on it.

    TL;DR I need to know if updating the old computer to Windows 10 will prevent me from still using Edius 6 on it.

    Also, if I don't update to Windows 10, will it be safe to open projects in E9 in Windows 10 and then the Windows 7 computer? Or will that ruin the project by opening it on an earlier OS?

    Thank you!

    QuickTime annimations and alpha channel graphics work in EDIUS 9.

    Of course thirdparty titels or filters would require the 64 bit versions.
    A way to have an extra assurance is to export your annimations to a HQX with alpha. This way you can open the old project preferably a duplicate in EDIUS 9 and you have them in a video file.

      I believe I moved to Windows 10 mid 2015 when they were releasing the free trials.

      I had some initial problems with audio drivers and things but don't forget you can run programs as 'Run As Compatible for Windows 7" if you need to.
      from memory I had to run the compatability mode as administration but it worked

          You may need to install Quicktime for Windows and activate it in the settings in EDIUS to get your QT footage working.
