Edius 6.5 has arrived and the competition will be standing up to take note. For the fellow 3D editors out there, you should all start jumping up and down with 3D joy! Edius 6.5 is the best, most feature-packed 3D editor on the market. From ingest to output, Edius gives smooth easy to use 3D adjustments filter, transitions and even 3D color correction. Native keyframing, which is an absolute must for 3D is built-in to every filter and transition.
And don’t be fooled, even though I rave on about the 3D capabilities, all of those same features are there for you in 2D editing as well. Coupled with the “Edit Anything” ability, Edius truly serves up an international buffet of abilities to handle and edit whatever format, framerate or codec that you throw at it. From NTSC to PAL, AVCHD to ProRes and even RED 4K files. Mix and match and edit away all with no special expensive graphics card.
If you are one of those “show-me” kind of people, go to the Grass Valley web site for a free 30 day trial.
