What was new in EDIUS 8?

In this section you can see a variety of videos which I produced on the new features that were added to EDIUS 8.

What’s new in EDIUS 8.5

EDIUS 8.5 was released in April 2017 and added support for new video formats – notably support for H.265. Playback is even accelerated by the right processor.

What’s new in EDIUS 8.3

In these videos we look at the new features of EDIUS 8.3. These include optical flow slow motion, new proxy resolutions, better support for 4K computer screens and the ability to burn a disc from any resolution project. The first two chapters examine optical flow in depth and explain the benefits and the pit falls. The last two cover the other new features..

What’s new in EDIUS 8.3 part 1 – optical flow slow motion

Optical flow gives you a better way to change the speed of your clips inside EDIUS. In the first part of our look at EDIUS 8.3 we examine the good bits and bad bits of optical flow and compare it to other programs..

What’s new in EDIUS 8.3 part 2 – optical flow slow motion options

In EDIUS 8.3 you can choose the default interpolation method to be used on all speed changes. Should you do so and what is the “knock on” effect?

What’s new in EDIUS 8.3 part 3 – new bin display and proxy mode changes

In this chapter we look at the new display modes in the EDIUS bin but mainly look into the two new proxy resolutions which give better looking proxy files. We also explain how to use proxy mode, how to make proxy files, the advantages of them and any potential problems.

What’s new in EDIUS 8.3 part 4 – Burn to disc and using a 4K computer screen.

In the final part of our look at EDIUS 8.3 we look at the other new features – the ability to make a DVD or Blu-ray from any project, the improvements to the interface when using a 4K computer screen and the changes in the GV Browser.

What’s new in EDIUS 8.22

The following is a play list of both of the chapters of our EDIUS 8.22 video, which covers adding LUTS to the Primary Colour corrector, the changes in the GV Browser and the support for QuickTime files without QuickTime for Windows installed..

What’s new in EDIUS 8.2

The following is a play list of all the chapters of our EDIUS 8.2 video, which covers the new primary colour corrector, motion tracking and the changes in the GV Browser.

The Primary Colour Corrector

The first section of our tutorial covers the new primary colour corrector and covers loading LUTS and the basic controls.

Motion tracking in the mask filter

Grass Valley have added motion tracking to the mask filter. Apply an effect to an area of the screen and get the mask to follow the subject. Here we cover all the basics and then have a few chapters looking at different masks and how we dealt with different types of tracking. This includes:

  • “Fixing” an out of focus shot with a mask.
  • Tracking car number plates.
  • Changing the subject of the track by tracking one object but making the mask follow another object.

Playback resolution

There is a new feature in EDIUS 8.2 where you can drop the playback resolution of the timeline for areas which the computer cannot playback without rendering. This new feature is only in EDIUS Workgroup.

Changes in the GV Browser

The Grass Valley browser has a couple of new and useful features.

  • You can search for duplicate clips and delete them.
  • You can set a sequence of images as a single clip and play it back like a video clip..
  • You have the option to reduce the playback resolution for formats with which your system cannot cope..
