    Ex-1 Edius Question

    One of my machines is running NX Edius 4.54 Broadcast. I have installed a card reader for my EX-1 and I am able to import the clips from the card after exporting them from the card as .mxf files via the sony card reader software. They open in this machine with out a problem. (BTW the video is stunning) I have another NX machine running 4.54 Pro (non broadcast) that has an SD project on it and I want to share some of the clips from the EX to that project. I moved them over via my network as .mxf files to the NX machine running Edius Pro 4.54 and they would not open.

    Is this an Edius/Broadcast problem? How can I import files from the EX into the machine running Edius 4.54 pro?

    Thanks guys and gals sorry for all the questions today

    I think you need broadcast for the second machine.

      EX requires a minimum of EDIUS Broadcast v4.6

      So essentially, if you want to share content in that specific format, both systems need Broadcast installed.

      (ie. you can buy an upgrade for the Pro system, or sneaker-net your dongle)

        Will the update to 4.6 take care of the EX problem in Edius Pro or will I still have to upgrade that one machine to Broadcast? I want to be able to use the EX with projects on both machines. This current project will be on going for several months possibly a year.

        Thanks

          Both machines MUST be broadcast - sorry.

            Ronnie,

            The codec is in broadcast so to work with the projects you would need broadcast on both.

              Not a Problem.... I will simply update to Broadcast on both machines. I can see that the new EX has such stunning images that I will want to use it on both machines.

              Monday I shot with my DSR 500 at the University of Mississippi Dental School and I had been using the EX just a few hours earlier. When I looked at the video that I shot with the DSR 500 it just didn't look as sharp and it has 2/3 inch chips. I think what happens is that when you have been looking at HD or HDV footage then suddenly shift to SD it you think something is wrong with the camera.

              However, Edius came to the rescue. A slight sharpness filter made the SD footage "pop" a little bit and after a while it looked fair. The final result for distribution will be SD DVD so ultimately it is not as distressing. I sure will be glad when we can distribute our work in a HD format (which ever wins) at a reasonable price.

              I think that when some company comes out with a set top player that will play everything from a CD to what ever HD format (and bubba can find it at Walmart) the prices of the blank disks and burners will get down to where a bottom feeder like me can afford it. Maybe my customer base will be able to afford it also.

              Thanks for all your help

                Generally, if you have access to a HD camera, I will still film in HD even if the ultimate destination is SD. Better colours and sharpness is the reason.
