  • My upgrade arrived but I’m nervous!

    Hi All

    So my upgrade to V5 arrived today and I’m keen to install it but I have read on various posts that some things don’t exist in 5 or have changed somewhat..

    I’m sure I read somewhere that 3D PnP is now completely different..?

    Does anyone know what sort of timeline issues I will get when importing older V4 projects.

    Thanks!

    3DPnP is the same,
    The layout tool is different (you can add keyframes)

      Great Thanks,

      So will older V4x projects load up and play identically? (including pnp, transitions and filters)?

        yes, they will...
        if you were using xplode transitions these will be replaced with standard dissolves...

        this is because xplode are not included or supported in version 5

          no need to be nervous

          1. right click all edius4 procect files and copy/paste, this will create a Copy of your project file in the same folder (no disk space required)

          2. uninstall Edius4 and hardware driver with Add/remove

          3. reboot

          4. empty the sytem temp folder in docs and settings/local settings

          5. install Edius5 and reboot when done

          6. install any Bonus programs you may need

          start Edius5 and always load the Copy of your project

          if for one reason a project should fail in Edius5, simply uninstall Edius5 and install Edius4 and open the original project file, or in my case, I would swap C drive wiith the Edius 4.61 C drive which takes seconds on the Supermicro

          so far all my projects opened without a hitch, however I lost all Xplode transitions which became dissolves, no big deal, easily recreated, except for the meat cleaver transition chopping off the dogs head

            ghost your system, install E5.
            Yes, the new version will open your older projects. If you used some effects that are not support in E5, it will replace by dissolve effect. You can change it to new effect (many with E5).

                  Okay so now I’m stuffed!

                  I have installed my upgrade as per instructions included with the upgrade and now when I launch the programme I get the windows error ‘Edius has encountered a problem and needs to close… ‘

                  I know this could be for a million reasons right now and I’m starting to go through them from the start but has anyone else experienced this?

                  I knew I was right to be nervous! :-s

                      Hi Aristotelis,

                      Yes I have the SP - Im also getting a load of crc errors when installing..

                      mch264vout.001
                      mcddcout.dll
                      gpufxcube.tpd
                      + more...

                      I uninstalled twice now - cleared out temp files and still no joy?

                      Any advice?

                      Thanks
                      Nobby

                        a few ideas:

                        1) disable the SP board from device manager and try to start Edius again
                        2) What is your graphics card? Try updating to the latest driver...

                            I disabled the SP board and tried again but E5 is still crashing on launch.

                            I have an Nvidia GeForce 6600GT – I’m downloading the latest drivers now and I’ll give that a go….
