    With out an upgrade price the competition might seem like a better buy. I have not used Speed Edit but I have heard it cost less money and is true RT like Edius.

    Remember too, that this page points out all the major additions from 3.x:

    Don't knock the multi-cam feature: it's a well-done tool for switching between cameras on the timeline. Also note the support for direct encoding to AC3 audio, something which saves time for producing standard NTSC DVDs. And the direct to DVD feature isn't bad; a little clumsy but functional. The application layout has also been improved to have more standard GUI features, something some of us begged for since version 1. Those are just a few benefits which come to mind.

    Sequences alone made me upgrade,
    let alone the other improvements + extras . . .

    I have 10 sequences in my current editing project, and l can see it getting larger next week.

    If you can wait get v5 (sometime later this year).

    Bill,

    Your three videos could be set up and edited on one timeline in a new sequence, then when ready import that sequence into the main timeline and have one transition in and out to worry about.

    Edius treats every sequence as a separate video, so your three videos would appear as one (sequence) clip which can be treated on the main timeline as any other clip, with the added benefit that if you needed to fine tune the original three video sequence, you can just click into it and do it, it's not in a rendered format.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Just one more consideration, eduis 5 is due out later this year, so if you're not in a hurry it might pay to save your money until then.


    Cheers Vaughan

    basically, you can work on many sections or many versions within the same project

    Thanks Anton, I appreciate your opinions. Can you explain in more detail what you mean by the above and how you use multiple sequences? Not sure what you mean when you say work on many timelines within the same timeline.
    Were multiple sequences the main improvement you found?

    Does it still have the "keyer" track? Yes and you can hide it if you wish

    If I have 3 video tracks playing simultaneously can I transition all 3 into the next clip? Yes, also works with Edius3

    Can I copy a color correction filter from one clip to several clips at once and not individually? Yes

    Are there things you miss from older versions? No

    I'd be very interested to hear if you found it to speed up your daily workflow and in what ways. Yes, because you can have multiple sequences, so you can work on many timelines within the same timeline

    be sure to update to Edius 4.61

    started a topic What are some real advantages of 4.5?

    What are some real advantages of 4.5?

    I currently use Edius 3.6 and like it okay. I'm considering investing the $209.00 and upgrading to 4.5 and would like to hear from others what real advantages they found in 4.5.
    I don't care about owning the latest and greatest, I just need tools that work easily and dependably.

    I'm not too interested in "Features" such as multi-cam editing, etc. but more in day to day editing tasks such as trimming, adjusting audio levels, adding transitions to multiple clips, etc.
