Grass Valley EDIUS Pro 9 nonlinear editor provides native support for virtually all commonly used file formats, such as XAVC/XAVC S and AVC-Ultra/Intra, and allows for real-time editing of multiple formats and frame rates on the same timeline. EDIUS Pro 9 is designed as a native 64-bit application for Windows operating systems, and takes advantage of system memory for intensive media operations such as layering, stereoscopic 3D, multicam, and multi-track 4K editing.
EDIUS Pro 9 supports resolutions from 24 x 24 to 4K x 2K on the same timeline, and converts between HD/SD and HDR/SDR resolutions, aspect ratios, and frame rates in real time. You can edit in HD and place 4:3 video on the timeline, mix NTSC and PAL sources, add 4K content, or combine everything into projects in other resolutions and frame rates without waiting for any conversion or rendering to process. In addition to native format support, you can take advantage of Grass Valley's 10-bit intermediate codec, HQX, or even Avid DNxHD via an optional add-on.
The application can be installed on two machines, and you can edit in proxy mode if one of the machines isn't powerful enough.
