The other is the improvement in "ALPHA" production and use in the GPU transitions, for a long time I have wanted to be able to use a "peel" or "Page turn" transition on titles, well it can now be done!

Barry,
Be careful 'congratulating' Japan on the great alpha job. Keep in mind that they also read this forum. Japan also takes a compliment of a function within Edius as 'why do we need to improve this when the users are perfectly happy.'

My understanding of E5 and the GPU alpha is that the alpha only works while using the GPUFX of Edius, not 3rd party effect programs. Using the Matte as you described does work. This workaround has been around for a while and it does work. I'm glad that you are happy with that method.

I am not.

Everyone is talking about real time and E5 RT.
I know you mentioned that you didn't have AE or Premiere or other NLE software due to the expense of ownership. If you get a chance, try another NLE with full alpha support and see how easy it is to add that page peel to a title or graphic and retain full transparency. Time is saved as well as resources of the computer.
I just want Japan to know that not everyone is happy with the alpha support within Edius, so that they will work to get full alpha in V6. That's all, nothing more, nothing less!

Edius 4.6 is still my favorite editor.....so please, don't lable me negative!
