Check your EDIUS licence
With EDIUS 8 or later you have to make an EDIUS ID, unless you buy the Workgroup version. This stores your serial number and is needed as part of the copy protection. This is the link to the page to access your EDIUS ID info: https://ediusid1.grassvalley.com/
There is a limit to how many times you can activate and deactivate EDIUS. If you want to check what the current status is on your licence you can visit this page and enter your serial number: http://activation1.grassvalley.com/flexnet/operationsportal/logon.do

EDIUS X frequently asked questions
EDIUS X was released in September 2020. There are some changes between EDIUS 9 and EDIUS X so I have written a list of frequently asked questions here: http://www.dvctraining.co.uk/edius-x-faq/
Download EDIUS Updates
You can download updates to EDIUS either from the Grass Valley download site : https://wwwcms.grassvalley.com/auth
Or from EDIUS.NET: https://www.edius.net/updates.html
To download items from the Grass Valley site you will need to log on with a user account and register your product serial number. You do not need this on EDIUS.NET. EDIUS.NET is run by the official distributor for Grass Valley for Europe and the US.
Download my EDIUS settings
I have made some of my own project presets as well as some device settings and my own DVC user profile which you can download and install. Click here for more information.
In this guide I explain how to restore clips which have moved and EDIUS can no longer find them.
Using the channel map
You can use the channel map you can split how your audio is output in the final file. You can route all audio on different timeline tracks to one channel in the final file. Using an output format with multiple tracks you can then isolate dialogue, effects of music into separate tracks in the final file to make it easier to separate them in the future if you need to re-edit.
