Grass Valley EDIUS Pro 6.5 multiformat NLE has begun shipping, and now includes a 3D
editing workflow and makes its intermediate codec available to third-party applications.
|As well as the PC-based HQ/HQX codecs, a QuickTime version of Grass Valley’s HQ and 10-bit HQX codec, for Windows and Mac platforms, is now available as a free download.|
|The 3D workflow has stereo editing tools and new 3D support from the EDIUS timeline across its editing peripherals, which are STORM 3G and STORM 3G Elite editing hardware with stereoscopic 3D I/O through a single 3G SDI source and dual 3G SDI signals. EDIUS software and hardware supports the common stereo modes, including side-by-side, top-and-bottom and line-by-line display.
EDIUS Pro 6.5 incorporates 10-bit colour correction, a new Flash exporter, improvements to the Layouter tool, native image stabilization, a built-in loudness meter and closed-caption pass-through support.
A special systemized EDIUS version, called EDIUS Elite based on EDIUS Pro 6.5, is also available that can use the proxy files created and stored on the Grass Valley K2 Summit 3G server. EDIUS Elite also allows tight integration with Grass Valley STRATUS media workflow application framework, and includes audio bit stream, or Dolby-E/ AC-3, pass-through support.
An Grass Valley-certified EDIUS Prime Course is scheduled for 31 July to 2 August in Melbourne at Corsair Solutions.
