    You'll still be able to upgrade - but it'll cost more, especially for those upgrading from Pro.

    My understanding is that there will still be an upgrade price, but it will be higher. What that amount is, I do not know. And things are always subject to change.

    From what I see it does seem to be faster and more responsive espcially with Mpeg video which is kinda big for me. I have a quad core which I think is utilized more in V5.0 that and the plug-ins (that I was going to buy some of anyway) is worth the $250. I would like to get a look at DVDMF 7 when it comes out though.

    Cath, as I stated, I am happy for the $250 spent.

    But, this is not the extreme makeover that has been talked about here.

    When I first started v5, I checked the version info because it seemed exactly like v4.6. Nothing really has changed with the interface or most features, just some improvements here and there.

    I will be upgrading........Just wanted to see some posetives for E5

    Well thats it to be honest - we seem to post when we are up against a problem or a glitch! but not so much when we are happy with an app - unless we are asked.........

    I just needed to get some posetive feedback as to the worth.........I realise for those who don't have the prodad plugins this is a NO BRAINER, but I have them already and so just needed to here some + points for the early upgrade

    I will finish my latest project and then upgrade me thinks!!!

    Thanks for the feedback so far;-)

    I like it a lot, the GPU transitions are just great.
    I never used Explode but there are some in the GPU set that I will certainly use.
    Had one problem with the GPU transitions Edius occasionally locked up, BUT after downloading the latest drivers for the graphics card no problems
    I had all the plug ins already so that was not a great plus BUT if you do have the plugins you will either have to reload them all or follow the instructions below

    The improvements in Layout and 3D pip are great but seem to have caused a slight hit in RT
    One thing to watch is your previous presets can change, my HD 1440x1080 HQ had changed to Canopus Lossless codec and a new project was slower than an old but once corrected just great

    I like it alot, definately worth the upgrade price, layout tool is cool but I try to load a large image into Edius and I get black, so you still need Imaginate for large image when using HD, I wonder what is the largest image one can load? other than the installation problem I had and for some reason it won't closed properly on my system, everything is great, you should get it.

    Besides little problem with the installation of E5,
    like previous posts, It's worth much more than the upgrade price. (those plugins). I continue using E5 for couple older project without any problem - just replace some older effects in the project.

    the new audio levels controls and the freeze frame function are useful sometimes...

    In my opinion if you take in account the extra plugins (and nothing else) it is worth to upgrade!
