EDIUS Editing 4K in Proxy mode ???
In anticipation of a 4K camera purchase, I've downloaded some 4K video material - which (duh!) stutters on my EDIUS editor upon playback on a 3840 timeline. I done quite a bit of 1080 editing on a laptop in Proxy mode and then back to the 1080 on my big editor with no problems. Is this the same in UHD - whereby on a 3840 timeline we can Proxy the timeline to a lesser resolution so that I can edit perhaps 3 video layers without stuttering and stopping(adding appropriate titles or video effects), and then go back to the original timeline for output to a harddrive, thumbdrive, etc. or HDMI output straight to my 4K projector?

Much appreciate the input.

Hi Alan.

I sometimes have difficulties with real time playback in a UHD project if I'm pushing the timeline too hard. I'm using work group and dropping the timeline resolution will usually get me out of trouble. If you forget to switch back to full resolution when exporting a master, it doesn't matter as Edius will know what you are doing and go full res for the export.

Couldn't give any advice on proxy editing as I've not used it due to the fact that I'm usually in a rush to get on with things. If you've got time then proxy mode may help.

Also, if you've got time and disk space, you may want to consider transcoding all your native rushes to HQX. You'd be very surprised as to how far you can go with real time UHD performance using HQX. I do this myself sometimes for comps and for codecs that my system won't stand a chance playing, and it helps me avoid dropping too low for timeline playback resolution when using multiple UHD HQX tracks.

Alan, your trying to get a 3rd gen chip do what a 7th or 8th gen chip is designed to do.
It's time to think about a new system:)
Talk to Pat about his.

Thanks all. I know - a system upgrade or new is definitely in the very near future. After I get over the camera upgrade shock, then I'll approach the newer board, etc. After the summer trip. We all hope our 1953 Chevy will run forever!
Cheers back,
