Upgrade Question
 
I have upgraded my Edius v7.5 Pro into Edius 8 Pro. I found it is not like 7.5 Pro
Now I want to upgrade into Edius 8 Workgroup which is so close to 7.5 Pro.
Is this possible ? If possible what should I do ?
I do not want to buy WG Upgrade and so it will not work because I have already upgraded to 8 Pro.

You have to buy the Workgroup upgrade from Pro to get Pro. when you say EDIUS 8 is not like EDIUS 7.5 what do you mean?

The major difference between Pro and Workgroup is that Workgroup has extra features but they look and work in the same way. Some of the Workgroup features were in EDIUS 7 Pro - audio monitoring, MXF export and the loudness meter being probably the main ones.

Pretty much everything else is the same between the two. I did a video of the differences which you can see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sImKqP3xBdg. There is also information on the Grass Valley site.

The biggest obvious change between version 8 and version 7 is that the interface has been redesigned. If you do not like the new interface buying the Workgroup version will not help as it looks the same as Pro 8.

also, EDIUS 8 Pro is not optimised for multiple CPU or even single powerful CPU with hyperthreading

example, an 8 core i7 has 16 logical processors and 8 Pro will only use 10 during mp4 export, causing a very slow export

so I only recommend 8WG or 7.5

The differences per GV.

are you serious Anton? Will Edius 8 PRO support multi threading in the future?
I didnt go work group because I dont use MXF files. but i do have an I7 4930k and want to use all the cores. havent installed pro 8 on that system yet.

hopefully it is only a bug that can be fixed?

EDIUS 7.5 or 8WG will use all cores of the 4930K during mp4 export

It's not a bug.......

if it is a feature, then it will be the end of 8 Pro

Don't see why, you can still use Pro on a top end Skylake system, it will just mean that GV would have to make it clearer that anyone with a more powerful system with more cores would have to buy Workgroup.

sorry, let me make it clearer

it will be the end of me selling or recommending the Pro version since I only build PCs without quick sync
