Which version of Edius should you use?

Before you can start with Edius, you might need a little background info on who it is intended for. According to the press release from Grass Valley:

EDIUS Pro 7 is the fastest and most versatile real time editing software—4K, 3D, HD, SD, and almost any format from 24×24 to 4Kx2K, all on the same timeline, even in nested sequences, all in real time. …

EDIUS Pro 7 means more resolutions, unlimited tracks, and real-time editing for the ability to Edit Anything, Anywhere. EDIUS Pro 7 is the perfect finishing tool for broadcast news, newsmagazine content, and studio programs, as well as corporate, documentary, and 4K theatrical productions.

Avid Media Composer, the bigger giant in the broadcast world, cannot edit in 4K. From the products that Grass Valley sells, it is quite clear that their market is broadcast television and independent filmmakers.

What confuses matters, is that they have four versions of the software:

  • Elite
  • Pro
  • Neo
  • Express

  • Here’s a PDF Comparison so you can tell the differences. Only Pro and Elite can edit 4K, and has support for codecs from professional cameras. read more...
