  • Should I Update?

    I have been reading all the posts here that pertain to the 4.61 update. I have the update ready to go but I am hesitant. I have 4.54 running almost perfectly now (I can nit-pick but they are small things). Some of the posts have scared me... I have alot of heavy duty projects, some HD some SD... most with over 100hours of editing in them already. I will be working on some for awhile still (ongoing). I dont want to rock the boat in the middle of some projects but they could last while.

    Should I update? and if so, why?
    Thanks in advance for your honest answers.... ;)

    Well, if you are not sure, do not update, you will not see any difference after updating it. Small fix here and there, but no big changes. Ver. 5 will probably be interesting, but until it will be out, there will be no surprises. I heard they (japan guys) working hard on it, most of them busy with next version now, so we just have to thank for those small fixes they make for the current version.

        Why?
        Surely the releases have been bug fixes and finishing parts of the featureset that were not ready for release.

        As for the original question as Graham has said never update in the middle of a project as there is often not a best time, spend the money/time ghosting your existing drive, saving any projects in the current version before starting in the updated version (just in case)

          I always upgrade to latest version in the middle of a project, there is never a time where I am not in the middle of a project

          here is what I do:

          1. with norton ghost 2003 (best version), I clone C drive to another drive (I don't create an image as this will cause activation problems with Photoshop after restoring from image) (cloning drive to drive also clones the drive serial and there will never be an activation issue)

          2. when the clone is done I shut down and remove the cloned drive

          3. start PC and update Edius to latest software

          4. if after a few days of editing I decide I don't like it, I shut down PC, pull out the C drive and insert the clone drive (takes 2 seconds)

          5. start PC and I am back to previous version
