  • The Upgrade Confusion Edius 9 Pro OR Edius 9 Pro WG

    I am trying to decide which version I should buy. Not so much what I need, not the bare minimum. I'll probably never add the K2 system, but I do like (honestly can do without it), the Loudness set. Now that you get MYNC with both versions, here's my issues.

    I have two licenses for Edius 8.53 for Workgroup, and want to upgrade to either Edius 9 Pro or Edius 9 Pro for Workgroup. After that, my intention is to take advantage of the promotion by getting the free upgrade to Edius 10 or is it Edius X. With that said, I want to know in detail if by simply purchasing the Ver. 8 to Ver. 9 Pro update (cheapest option), gives me Edius 9 Pro for WG or just Edius 9 Pro.

    1.) Does "upgrading" as apposed to a full purchase, qualify for all of these promo upgrades going forward.

    2.) Do you get to keep Edius 8.53 WG on your computer, even after upgrading to the Edius X?

    3.) After purchase of this upgrade (the Ver. 8 to Ver. 9 update), does it automatically install the Edius 9 Pro for Workgroup software or only the Edius 9 Pro version?

    Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

    When you upgrade from 8WG to 8Pro, you will end up with Pro and you will lose several important features

    yes, you will get the free X serial but only the Pro one

    EDIUS 8 needs to be removed when you install X, you can only have 9 and X on the same system

    I would upgrade to 9WG, then you will also get X WG

      Thanks Anton, I thought that this would be the response. We want to use one of the licenses at my church so they can continue doing virtual services during the pandemic, using volunteer editors in rotation to finish post, and uploads. How many workstations can we use with one license of the WG ver. I read that you do not have to creat an Eid for the WG version, so how is it registered?

          no internet connection needed after activation, the Pro version requires internet for monthly license check, if editing in a remote location with no internet, you can't start EDIUS after one month

          preview quality option, so you can do multi layer 4k with ease without stutter

          hardware output conversion option, meaning you will be able to see 4k footage from a UHD timeline on a HDTV when outputting via a BM or GV card even if the TV is HD only

          Loudness meter

          Audio monitoring mode options

          when installing WG, you click skip to EDIUS ID, not needed unless you want to download the free NB Titler 5 (I don't use it)

              it is already installed, all you have to do is copy the newblue folder from 8 plugins to 9 plugins, then it will work in both versions, no need to uninstall 8 when installing 9
