    From some of the comments on EDIUS X there may be something like that. Will have to wait until September.

    I assume from the fact that I cannot find any mention of a price online that Stratus is expensive. We are not an Edius for Workgroups user.

    Actually we don't need "full blown MAM software". Mync is almost there. It is disappointing that there is no user preference to allow the database file to reside on a shared drive. Also it seems to me to be a fairly simple software fix to transfer a reference to the original source via a user comment, tag or reel no. when ingesting from Mync into Edius. Pity!

    The GV system for this is called STRATUS. Total media management.

    2. When clips are imported into Edius from Mync, there does not seem to be a way of tracking where those clips came from originally; any reference to the source memory card, for instance, is lost. With literally hundreds of hours of material in our archive not everything is kept online and we need to be able to restore offline edits as necessary.
    As I say I may well be missing something. If not, can anyone suggest alternative database software that will meet our needs?
    Sound like you are looking for a full blown network ready MAM software. There are many out there with varying prices, system requirements, and capabilities, such as CatDV or Axle AI to name a couple.

    These will not interface directly with Edius like Mync does of course, but they may track the information for you that Mync doesn't, and they do have network and multi user capabilities.
