  • Struggling with the basics!!!!!!!

    Now that I'm getting into it, I'm struggling with the basics now.

    How do I set the name for clips before capturing?
    At present I get 006 008 001 or something like that which means nothing to me, and as I have about 50 clips captured from my testing yesterday I can't work out easily which is which.

    Now I'm going to start some work, I need to quickly tell what clip is what.

    I can't see a way of doing this before capture, can it be done?

    I have tried F1 and the manual but neither say anything that I can find :(

    I'm going to searh canopus' site to see if they ahve basic tutorials on there, but if anyone can help, great and please can you point me at any tutorials that are around I could do with a watch and read now.

      I love it when users answer their own questions but just so others know :)

      In the Settings / application settings / Deck Settings there is a option for confirminfg the file name. You can check this to make sure you have the opportunity to name the files you capture to what you want them to be named to. :)

        That's one of my pet hates as well, people saying they've found the answer but not saying what it was........

        Sorry :)

            and notice the Pre-Roll amd Margin settings above the setting that was high lighted... that is what causes the program to try and capture a couple of seconds after your out point :)

              Is there any way to control the naming of multiple captured clips, other than <your file name>(001)...(002)...(003) or whatever the current default is? If not, that would be a nice feature for future updates.

                Ok, here's another struggle.........

                In premiere a right click + Copy meant I could copy a video clip/audio file. When you came to paste you had the option to paste the clip or to just use the effect/s on another selected clip.

                Is this possible in Edius?

                I got around it by applying the effect to one clip then making this the default for colour correct, highlighting all the clips I wanted it on and then applying it, which worked well.

                I now want to add an audio effect to several clips, well increase the volume. I tried highlighting the clips and R/C and use move all, but it wouldn't work unless I only had one clip selcted.

                  click the audio clip that has the filter, this will show the filter in the info palette

                  rubberband the clips you wish to apply the same filter

                  drag from info palette to any of the highlighted clips, done

                  the same goes for video filters

                    OK, got that, it'll help a lot.

                    It doesn't work though if you have used the rubber band to move the volume up say 2db. I've not explored the audio filters to see if this can be done with one of those yet, so will do now.

                    I'm a bit behind with work, being without my pc for nearly 3 weeks, so learning edius at the same time as trying to catch up is.......................... interesting........ but it's going well thanks to all of you.
