    I'm running Edius 8 so far only on my old i7-3770 machine from 2013. Now I'm planing make an hardware update on i7-11700K machine and transfer Edius 8 here.
    Question:
    1. Is it enough to perform online deactivation via GV License Manager on old machine and activate Edius 8 on a new machine?
    2.I will keep old machine as backup and is it possible to run Edius 8 on both of them?
    I understand that they can't be run at the same time but don't understand can old machine work with no started Edius 8 and new machine with started at the same time or vice versa?

    Never buy the 11th generation core. Its igpu and EDIUS(8-10.ver) have serious compatibility problems.Its performance is not as good as AMD R7 5800x。If you are sure you need to use QSV function, please select i9 10850k。I did a test. The performance of the 11th uhd750 is only 1 / 3 of that of the uhd630. Intel 12th core i5 will directly cause EDIUS to crash.

    In addition to the Chinese version of EDIUS, other versions of edius8 or 9 can activate 3 computers.

      The performance of quick sync in the 11700k is not as good as the previous generation, although I don't agree it is only 1/3 the power. They are likely to fix this with edius x but don't know if they will update EDIUS 8.
      in answer to the licence question you can have edius activated on two machines so as long as you have only activated once you don't have to deactivate it on your old machine and can activate it on the new one.
      The licence is that you only use it on one machine at a time so don't use them both at the same time.

        Thanx for answers! Also I will check those issues with Intel 11th generation...interesting. On my ancient 3rd gen. i7-3770 Quick Sync won't work with 4K video never.

          Generation 11 consumes more power than generation 10,Maybe it's our language barrier. Decoding performance of uhd750 is only 35% of that of uhd630, and the coding performance is only about 80%, because EDIUS does not adapt to the new SDK。
          For the new Intel SDK, it can be said to redevelop the decoder,Programmers have a lot of work. Uhd750 is about to be eliminated, and the upcoming uhd770 needs to be re adapted to the SDK. EDIUS should first adapt to AMD and NVIDIA GPU,Not the soon to be phased out uhd750。In February this year, I found the problem of uhd750. Now the uhd770 crashes directly. The performance of Intel 12th is very unsatisfactory. I really don't know what GV thinks.

              the EDIUS 8 serial allows for 3 activations, so technically it can be installed on 3 systems

              I had EDIUS7, 8 and 9 installed on my laptop, office PC and main PC

              EDIUS X only allows two activations so you need to buy two licenses in order to run it on three PC
