EDIUS 9.51 released

Here you can download the new version EDIUS 9.51 directly. (Attention: If you are using Blackmagic Design I/O Hardware (like Intensity, DeckLink, UltraStudio) you need to update to the latest Blackmagic Design driver.)

Today Grass Valley released version 9.51 of its EDIUS editing solution, which has been extended by a number of features. As always, EDIUS 9 users get the update to version 9.51 free of charge.

EDIUS 9.51 includes, amongst others, the following new features:

Blackmagic Raw 6K Support
EDIUS 9.51 now also supports the Blackmagic Raw of the Pocket Cinema Camera 6K and the Blackmagic Design Pocket 6K Film Gen 4 ISO color space.

Comprehensive Quicktime codec support
EDIUS supports many Apple Quicktime formats natively - different from many other editing solutions. EDIUS 9.51 comes with additional native Quicktime import and export codecs, which makes the optional installation of Quicktime unnecessary. EDIUS now supports the Apple Quicktime Animation codec as well as the video import codecs JPEG 2000, PNG and TIFF and the audio codecs HE-AAC, ALAC, ADPCM (IMA QT, IMA WAVE, MS), Opus and FLAC.
For the export EDIUS now supports the following MOV video codecs: QTRLE, PNG, MJPEG and JPEG 2000 as well as the audio codecs M4A (ACC, ALAC) and OGG (Vorbis).

Improved Blackmagic Design hardware output
In EDIUS 9.51 the new Blackmagic Design SDK is integrated. This results in new possibilities for the use of the latest Blackmagic capture cards (I/O solutions). When editing for example a HDR project and using a Blackmagic Design capture card, which supports HDMI 2.0, the output image is automatically switched to the used color space. Currently the DeckLink 4K Extreme 12G and the UltraStudio 4K Mini support the automatic switching of the color space via HDMI 2.0.

In the EDIUS Workgroup version the 9.51 update now brings along 4K framerate of up to 100p, 119.88p and 120p. In general the direct hardware output of UHD 50p and upwards requires the EDIUS Workgroup version. Furthermore, with the DeckLink 8K the display of 8K is possible via special EDIUS 8K turnkey systems.

Video capturing and preview with AJA hardware
In EDIUS 9.51 it is now possible to capture with the AJA capture cards KONA 5 and KONA 1. Also in terms of preview there are new possibilities. The KONA 5 allows a preview of up to 4K 30p in the EDIUS Pro version, up to 4K 60p in the Workgroup version and even up to 8K 60p with the 8K turnkey system. The KONA 1 supports a preview of up to Full HD 60p in the Pro and Workgroup version.

Further improvements in EDIUS
The Olympus OM-Log400 mode is supported. EDIUS now works with the color space of Olympus cameras like the OM-D E-M1X.
Similar to the ProRes 4444 export the Workgroup version of EDIUS 9.51 now also supports the export of Avid DNxHR 4444 MXF with alpha channel. Those who purchase the DNxHD/HR option also get this feature in EDIUS Pro 9.51.
Furthermore there are many smaller general improvements based on the feedback of EDIUS users.

Improvements in Mync
In the media management software Mync multiple selected clips can now be added to a new storyboard or deleted from the storyboard. As in EDIUS the native Quicktime codecs and also the Raw format and color space of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K as well as the Olympus OM-Log400 are supported.

EDIUS 9.50 now available / Grass Valley launches EDIUS 9 "Plus" Promotion with free upgrade to the next EDIUS version

Here you can download the new version EDIUS 9.50 directly.

Amsterdam, 13 September 2019 Today, at the IBC in Amsterdam Grass Valley presents version 9.50 of its EDIUS editing solution, which has been extended by a large number of particularly requested features. As always, EDIUS 9 users get the update to version 9.50 free of charge.

In addition, Grass Valley today launches an attractive EDIUS 9 "Plus" Promotion that will be available until the release of the next version of EDIUS. Anyone purchasing EDIUS 9 from 13 September 2019 will receive a free upgrade to the next version, which is expected in 2020. Entitled are EDIUS Pro 9 or Workgroup 9 full versions as well as (Jump) upgrades from version 8 and older EDIUS versions - except for the discounted EDU versions and the Home Edition. As with EDIUS 8 and 9, EDIUS 9 and the next version can be installed in parallel on the same PC. Further information on the EDIUS 9 "Plus" Promotion can be found at: www.edius.net/plus

EDIUS 9.50 includes the following new features, amongst others:

Multicam Audio Sync
The synchronization of multi-camera recordings is now also possible via audio - as desired by many users. The new function is used when shooting with multiple cameras - or even when adding sound recording by a Field Recorder. Synchronization is possible both before editing and during editing, if, for example, further recordings are added to the project. Ultra-fast audio analysis is achieved by supporting clip brands. Another innovation is the automatic adjustment of the number of cameras in the multicam preview. When synchronizing to a new multicam sequence, EDIUS automatically selects the optimal view according to the number of cameras.

Import of Blackmagic RAW clips
EDIUS 9.50 supports the import of the new Blackmagic RAW format. Thus, EDIUS is probably the only editing software on the market that supports all popular raw formats. braw files of the URSA Mini Pro and the Pocket Cinema 4K can thus be imported directly via the bin window.
In addition, Workgroup users also benefit from the draft mode optimized for Blackmagic RAW. Finally, EDIUS 9.50 now supports the special color spaces of the Blackmagic cameras.

Export of Apple ProRes 4444 clips with alpha channel
Unlike many other editing systems, EDIUS allows the export of videos with alpha channel. New in EDIUS 9.50 is the export including alpha channel in the format ProRes 4444. EDIUS Pro 9.50 allows the ProRes 4444 export as MOV file, EDIUS Workgroup 9.50 also offers MXF file in addition.

Import of other raw camera formats (Canon and Sony)
EDIUS 9.50 now supports the import of Canon Cinema Raw Light material from the recently introduced Canon EOS C500 Mark II. In addition, the Sony Raw support has been updated to version 3.3. The import of Sony X-OCN material is now also possible in EDIUS 9.50.

New Features in Mync
The Media Management Software Mync now supports, amongst others, the decoding of Blackmagic RAW material. The color spaces of the Blackmagic Design cameras are also available. With the new loop playback function clips are automatically played as an endless loop.
