With the addition of the Chorus Hub 11 Server and strong integration with Mync 11, EDIUS is firmly positioned for craft editors today and for years to come.”
Improvements to functionality include the update of the core engine with support for the latest PC environments and GPU leverage. A new intelligent color correction filter automatically optimizes video footage. Ready-to-use glitch effects are included. Adjustment clips let the user comfortably apply effects to multiple clips.
An AI-based voice recognition allows the editor to eliminate even extreme noise better than ever before. To further optimize audio, EDIUS 11 includes a new dedicated Audio Editor which also supports an AI-based speech-to-text workflow. A new integrated, fast, and powerful Titler allows the user to burn text as subtitles into video.
Mync 11 provides users with advanced content management features to quickly prepare the footage for editing. A new EDIUS 11 Mync tab puts these tools and assets at the editor’s fingertips directly in EDIUS.
The newly developed Chorus Hub 11 Server technology enables team collaboration and makes editing more efficient.
