Default Edius 6 Big hit in Still image capability

Edius 6 capability of handling still seems to be halved
In E4 and 5 a 5000 x 3750 still around 16Mp could be handled with ease
Now Max is 3000 x 2250 around 6Mp
You will run into this problem if you open an old project with stills
It seems OK when a still is used by itself with no overlay or filter added ie title or keyer
The problem manifests itself as a BLACK image on both the timeline and rendered to Bluray. It can be OK when project is first started but will quickly appear after some editing
File type does not seem to matter, have tried tga, png, bmp and tiff forget jpg this will not show even on opening
Solution is to reduce size in a graphics program and save to same name, Edius picks it up no problem, can be done with E6 open as well
Hope this helps some one else

I have the same problem. In addition, when my project includes many photos - it opens too slowly((((((

Lets make it clear any software producer is in it for the money, there can be no argument about that.

Now, by giving us what we want at least in part with each paid for upgrade they generate more income at our espense.

They continue this process by reducing capabilities and monitoring what happens. Remove too much and users jump ship, give too much and there is less overall sales in that there is less paid for upgrades. Its a vicious circle at our expense. Its not just GV all do it.

When Edius first came out we used it to edit DV, then came HDV and now AVCHD.

So that is three upgrades that could be argued are driven by technology.

How many paid for upgrades have their been since the first version of Edius?

There have been paid upgrades for versions 2.0 3.0 4.0 5.0 and 6.0. That is five I am aware of. The *.01 and other dot upgrades have been free.

Re stills handling in E6: I wonder if this backward step (the reduced picture size that can be handled) is a function of the extra manipulation that has been enabled within the layout tool?

I had many problems with pictures that were more than 3MB or larger than 2500 pixels (horizontal) in E5, and believed some people in this forum too - I resized it to 2500 or less to avoid the "black image".

So if E6 can run smooth with 3000 x 2250 then it's an improvement !

still images are handled by QuickTime player, so be sure you have the latest and try again

Commentary aside, QuickTime still seems to be more flexible than the previous Leadtools library.

Besides, EDIUS comes with the tested/qualified QuickTime version, so as long as you don't let QuickTime update, it's a known scenario.

So you would recommend not to update Quicktime on a PC that is running Edius? Because often when installing new software, and even on some webpages, it happens that you are asked to update it, or a Quicktime version is just being installed. Is there any way to prevent QT from updating/asking at all?

I imported large images without problems in 5.51, btw, jpegs with 8MP and above. But there seems to be a problem with filters, they often do not work with the image and just produce some strange lines in the image. After rendering them to video clips, everything was fine.
