8bit or 10bit?

Does Edius edit in 8 or 10 bit?

I believe stuff like Cineform, ProRes, DNxHD, offer 10bit editing...but am curious to know if Edius is capable of this as well. Can't seem to find it in the specs on their site; maybe I just overlooked it.

Is it possible to utilize Cineform or DNxHD in Edius?

Also, is anybody running Edius 5.x on Win 7 64 bit....successfully?

Edius 5.5 works perfect in Win7/64

10bit is not part of the current version

I've recently added Edius to my Win7 64-bit workstation, and it's wonderful.

I have a large archive of Cineform encoded files and they seem to perform just fine with Edius.

So being able to run on Win 7 64 bit, is Edius able to gain the benefit of accessing more RAM than you would if you were running a 32 bit OS?

no, because the current version of Edius is only 32bit

Edius may not benefit directly, but it will improve overall machine performance.
I jumped from 4 to 20 GB and the multitasking and app switching performance has greatly improved.

Yes and no - depends on what you're doing. For example a Windows Media encoding used up about 6-7GB of my 12GB memory on my i7/64 machine, because the WM codec is 64-bit.

But as Rusty just mentioned, the overall performance is unbelievable. Whereas on my old XP/32 computer pretty much everything else came to a screeching halt when rendering video, with the 64-bit system I can run 5-6 programs all at the same time (in addition to rendering even H.264), and the computer responds without even blinking.
