Edius NEO

Has anyone started using the new Edius NEO?? Just curious if it is too bare bones or could meet most HDV editing needs.

Anyone??

It's a shame that this board doesn't get more traffic... the Canopus line from GV is a great product group.

I agree -- I just got Edius Broadcast & Procoder 3, and I'm wondering why this particular forum seems to be essentially dead. Maybe the Canopus forum is the place to be...

Probably because EDIUS just works and everybody is busy editing.

I'm always impressed with the Canopus HQ codec and it's colour correction on my underwater footage, multi format editing and encoding out files to many different formats is so so easy. Encoding out DVD's with chapters from the timeline is so easy as well now.

I have done some big projects with it now with heaps of graphics.

It leaves Premiere Pro for dead in this area.

I would got for the Pro version if you can.

The main reason I was interested in the NEO version is one it is cheap and two it runs on Vista. I have a Vista notebook that I got for my small "business meeting" laptop and I just need a scaled down editor that is pro enough not be overly "consumery" in its interface. Plus it edits AVCHD. I'm leaning on buying a cheap Xacti 1000 for shooting storyboard purposes.

If appears from what I can tell that the Pro Version is XP only.

I did find the 30 day trial for NEO and let you know what think.

I have loaded EIDUS PRO up on my wife's VISTA laptop and it runs fine.
Title Motion Pro does not though but every thing else does.

I spent a day turning off all the rubbish that VISTA and HP laptops have installed by default though.

I'll be sticking with XP for some time though on my main setup.

Paul,

That's good to know. But I hear you. My main 2 production PC's and edit apps. will stay on Win XP for a long time as well. Since Vista is a display resource hog it is taking a while for serious production and editing applications to get adopted. Hence, Vista is so under adopted, that I'm seeing $600 dual core laptops just to keep Vista and PC's selling. So, I picked a Compaq because it was just so cheap.

Other than Adobe CS3, NEO is the only other professional type editing software that apparantly runs on Vista. I'm planning on downloading this weekend and seeing how it works.

Don't you just love Microsoft???

Cheers.

Actually, Neo retains a lot of features, but is missing some of the big ones like:

Multi-cam
3DPIP
Time re-mapping
Audio mixer and custom audio channel mapping (but the rubberbands work)
Xplode for EDIUS, ProCoder Express for EDIUS, and TitleMotion Pro for EDIUS
Vector scope and wave form monitoring
Customizable user profiles and project presets

But it has all the fantastic "real" real-time and mixed-format features of it's big brother. So, as always, it depends on what your needs are.
