Grass Valley Launches EDIUS X Editing Software
Grass Valley has introduced EDIUS X, which it says “marks the start into a new era of nonlinear editing. The next generation of the award-winning, multiformat software comes with a completely redesigned core engine along with a modular concept allowing even more performance for fully customizable workflows.”
Katsushi Takeuchi, Grass Valley’s vice president of editing systems, said: “The demand for captivating, stunning quality content is at an all-time high; it is therefore imperative for broadcasters, content owners and production companies to have tools that are reliable, fast and flexible. Building on the industry proliferation of cloud technologies and software-based workflows, the launch of EDIUS X ensures that we continue to provide our customers with the most enhanced capabilities and functionalities.”
EDIUS X features background rendering and background export making the workflow what it calls “a smooth, uninterrupted experience.” The enhanced Layouter motion tracking allows the user to easily attach a label, animation, or video clip to a tracked object, and when combined with Anchor Mode reframes a shot with reference to the tracked object.
EDIUS X supports the newest codecs and camera releases natively. The software also includes enhanced GPU acceleration. This includes an ultrafast H.265 export which is also available with the new background rendering options. The company said the new modular design “allows utilizing the potential of multi core CPUs more efficient than ever before.”
EDIUS X comes bundled with three new modules for optimizing audio, title creation and video effects including all new seamless transitions.
