Default Edius 5.5 and MOV files

I'm upgrading both of my systems tomorrow to 5.5 from 5.12. Should I expect both systems to better handle the files I capture on my Canon 7D? Those files are MOV files using AVC / H.264 compression. My current workflow forces me to render those files to Canopus HQ. Once rendered everything works great. However it takes time to render and eats up a lot of harddrive space.

Thanks.

I have no problem with Canon 7D footage on my setup and you have more RAM and a faster CPU, so you should be good to go.

Multiple streams are possible - I recently edited multicam with 2 Canon 7D tracks and an AVCHD track. Sometimes it slowed a bit, but mostly fluid editing.

As long as your frame rates and project dimensions match, you'll be happy.

Joe, do you typically render your 7D footage or edit it natively on the timeline?

Thanks Rusty.

Default question

Hi!

I'm buying a canon 7d. I used to work in SD with DVCAMs. I use Edius 3 with a DVX card.
What do you guys suggest which Edius card should I choose to be able to work with these AVC-HD MOV files. And what should be a minimum computer requirement for that (CPU, RAM, display card, HDD 7200rpm enough?)?

thanks,

atis

Intel i7 is minimum. You might want to take a look at some of the people's signatures here and get an idea of what they're using.

As far as the card, I recommend HDSpark, if you're only doing HD. If you are going to need analog (component/svideo/composite) and HDMI in, then HDStorm.

I have an Edius NX pci-x card on a Dual Xeon 3GHZ 8GB memory Windows 64bit system. I can't playback Canon 7D mov files in realtime. If I upgrade to HDSpark will I be able to play the mov files without rendering? Do I need a system upgrade for this?

I had no luck with this on EDIUS Neo Boost, software. I have an number of 5D footages, and it does not seem to import properly, and on playback via timeline it stops constantly, I'm running an 8GB i7 system, so it shouldn't be an issue with performance, is it best I transcode into Canopus HD, or do I really need to upgrade to Edius 5.5 in order to edit 5D footages.

Also, des anyone know where would be best place to get an Upgrade to Edius 5.5 from Neo Booster, as I am unable to find any it anywhere.

Cheers
Tom
