Edius FX

EDIUS RANGE OF EFFECTS

Edius’ range of realtime effects is large - many are effects that you will use all the time.  Only colour corections and DVEs are key-framable, although it is possible to use the blend effects option to fade the effect in and out over time which gives a similar effect to keyframing.  Apart from being realtime all are of high quality

Transitions

EDIUS has a wide range of transitions - starting with the obvious cross dissolve.  It has 2D and 3D transitions built in and each can be customised.

Transitions can sit either between two clips on one track, or one two clips placed in an "A" and "B" style arrangement on two different tracks.  This is probably the closest any program gets to the old "A" & "B" tracks for transitions that was prevalent in programs in the 1990s.

EDIUS also includes a large range of 3D transitions which use the graphic card for rendering, with explosions, spheres wipes, cubes and other wacky 3D effects.

EDIUS normally ships with a program made by German company, ProDAD, called VITASCENE.  This is a range of different filters which include movie looks, glowing and sparking effects and masks and these can all be used as transitions as well as filters.

If you want even more variations you can always by ProDAD Adorage.

Colour and Image correction

Grass Valley have some excellent and easy-to-use colour correction tools - primarily the Three Way Colour Corrector and the YUV curve effect.   You can also limit the colour correction tools to a specific are using the MASK filter.  The full version of EDIUS (not EDIUS NEO) also comes with some NEW Blue Effects which have various tools for enhancing the image including ones for removing skin blemishes and some nice colour correction tools.   We have also used ProDAD's Vitascene for quick colour correction, which is rendered by your graphic card.  Vitascene is included with both the full EDIUS and EDIUS Neo.

Picture in Picture and keying effects

EDIUS effects

EDIUS is actually pretty good as a compositing program.  It has 3D and 2D picture in picture effects and can normally handle several layers flying around before it has to render.  It has a very good realtime Chromakey filter built in, as well as Lumakey, track mattes and if that is not enough you can even make your own mattes using the new MASK tool.  The latter gives you the kind of masking abilities you would normally have to buy a program like Adobe After Effects to achieve.

Miscellaneous filters

EDIUS effects

EDIUS has a lot of very nice filters which include decent slow motion - both a flat rate and a variety where you can start at one speed and then change to another, called TIME REMAPPING.  EDIUS also has a really nice OLD MOVIE filter which can be used as the name suggests or just to add a "film look" to a shot; there are nice BLUR, SOFT FOCUS and MOTION BLUR effects, plus filters like Pencil sketch and EMBOSS.
