EDIUS.NET Podcast – New in EDIUS 9.30


In this podcast we will provide an overview of
the new features available in EDIUS 9.30. This update focuses on customer wishes. New are: Let‘s get into the details of the new features! Closed caption subtitle display Numerous TV stations in the USA use EDIUS. As a consequence of this there has been a desire for closed caption support. In contrast to subtitles which are burnt into the image, closed captions can be switched on and off. So they are part of the video file or video
stream, but not an element of the image. All common formats are supported. To display closed captions during playback,
go to View>On Screen Display>Closed Caption>On/Off in the menu bar. EDIUS displays the closed captions in the
title-safe area of the recorder. To show the subtitles it is required that
the resolution, frame rate and pixel aspect ratio of the project match the source. Originally this feature was announced exclusively
for the Workgroup version. Now EDIUS Pro users can also benefit from the closed caption display. Furthermore additional metadata will
be passed through. This feature was originally reserved
for the Workgroup version as well, but will also be available for Pro users. 50/60p timecode display More and more users use camcorders which record in 50 or 60 frames per second. EDIUS has always supported these frame rates. Starting with version 9.30, EDIUS is now introducing the 50/60p timecode at the request of many users This means that the frames are numbered from 0 to 49 or 59 respectively. RED Raw decoding GPU support Due to its extensive and fast colour correction
EDIUS is also interesting for cinematic work. In this area, filmmakers need powerful
processing of raw material. Sony Raw and Canon Raw are already accelerated
during processing by the graphics card (GPU). As of EDIUS 9.30 there is now also full
GPU acceleration for RED Raw. The minimum requirements for the graphics
card are 2GB of RAM and OpenCL 1.1 or CUDA 6.5 support. Advanced optical flow options The optical flow technique was integrated
for the first time in EDIUS 8.30. It was the first
editing software on the market that performed convincing slow-motion and frame-rate conversions
in real-time. Users are now requesting to be able to manually
adjust the calculation method so as to obtain optimum results even with complex footage. As of EDIUS 9.30 different quality options
are now available for the interpolation method. In addition to the built-in preset for High
Speed processing, the quality levels Medium Quality, High Quality and Highest Quality
are available, as well as a customized setting. When using the “Custom” setting, you can optionally
enable the “Advanced match”. If this option is not ticked, the previous
algorithm will be used. When ticked the quality is improved in most
cases thanks to the new algorithm. The accuracy of the analysis can be adjusted
in 4 steps. With each level, the calculation time increases fourfold. Coloured Marker Sequence and clip markers support the user in various tasks. They allow you to mark and annotate a specific
area, divide long passages, help synchronize, act as BD / DVD chapter markers and much more. Users have inquired about the possibility of using different marker colours. This makes working with markers easier
and clearer. In the new version, there are now different
colour options for sequence and clip markers. In addition to the current standard colour
orange, now there is also red, yellow, blue, pink and purple. In addition to this, it is possible to export and import marker lists including the colour information as XML file. For more flexible exchanges, users wished to use the XML file format for the marker lists, which is implemented from
EDIUS 9.30 on. When importing CSV marker lists that were
exported with a previous version of EDIUS, the markers in the new version appear as normal markers in orange. New XML marker lists are not backwards compatible with previous versions of EDIUS since they only use CSV. However, it is still possible to output the
marker list as CSV just as before. So the marker lists can still be imported
into previous versions of EDIUS. Here the markers will appear as before in
orange. In order to make better use of the new coloured markers, we recommend adding the corresponding buttons to the marker window. To do so, go to Settings>User Settings>User
Interface>Button and select Marker. You can now set up the buttons for the markers. Select the desired marker colours. Extension of the default exporter Most EDIUS users always use the same export
format. For this EDIUS offers a default export. Since it has become more and more commonplace for the need to export in various formats, users have now requested to be able to use several default
export presets. In EDIUS 9.30, up to four default export presets
can now be individually created. The presets can be renamed accordingly. But even faster export, keyboard shortcuts and buttons can be set for the default export templates. This applies to the file output as well as
the batch export. Improvements to the media management software Mync In Mync there have also been some optimizations. The 50 / 60p timecode option has been integrated
into both the Basic and Standard versions. In both versions, the upload function has
been updated. The closed caption subtitle display option is now implemented in Mync Standard. In addition Mync now supports the Canon EOS
C700 FF Cinema RAW 5.9K format. Additional improvements to EDIUS As in Mync Standard, the previously mentioned
Canon EOS C700 FF Cinema RAW 5.9K format is also supported in EDIUS 9.30. The clip properties now provide support
of higher framerates up to 240p. This is very helpful in terms of working with
HFR or slow motion footage. Additionally there are tooltips including
extended information for the color spaces. The MP4 export is extended by settings for the optimization for streaming and multi audio applications. EDIUS 9.30 now reads additional metadata from the Panasonic AU-EVA1. Furthermore some dialogue windows which were
only available in English are now displayed in the localized language, such as for example in German. Exclusive to EDIUS Workgroup 9, the Monitor
Control function supports additional monitors. Moreover the Workgroup version has the option
to export XAVC Intra 4K and AVC Ultra 4K in the MXF container as one file. Again, this was a customer request – made by the Berlin Philharmonics, who are known
worldwide for their UHD HDR concert productions and work with EDIUS 9.
