3. EDIUS X Pro


EDIUS X marks the start into a new era of nonlinear editing. EDIUS X comes with a completely redesigned core engine along with a modular concept allowing even more performance for fully customizable workflows.

For about two decades EDIUS is well known for its stability, benchmark setting performance, and creative tools. EDIUS is being used across the industry from broadcast facilities and news agencies up to government institutions, corporate productions, independent film makers, video creators and video enthusiasts.

The new modular design enables Grass Valley to continuously update and enhance the EDIUS X feature set and workflow options. This will allow to meet upcoming customer demands and to incorporate new technologies and web services such as machine learning during the ongoing development.


New Features

  • Background Rendering
    EDIUS X will never ask you to interrupt your editing for a process to finish. This will make your workflow smooth, creative and virtually unstoppable.
  • Background Export
    The new background render engine is also great for exporting files. You will never have to pause your work.
  • GV Job Monitor
    EDIUS X keeps you informed about all background activities and lets you prioritize jobs as needed.
  • Layouter Motion Tracking with Chase Mode
    EDIUS X allows you to easily attach a label, animation or video clip to your tracked object.
  • Layouter Motion Tracking with Anchor Mode
    Have your picture automatically reframed with reference to the tracked object. This is great for aspect ratio conversions and virtual multicamera shots.

  • VST Plug-in Support
    EDIUS X broadens the support for VST plug-ins, including support for latency compensation along with a powerful WaveShell integration. 
  • H.265 Export
    EDIUS X speeds up the export rendering time by leveraging NVIDIA GPU support. This is also available with the new background rendering options.
  • Draft Preview
    Reducing image resolution or bit depth for preview improves the performance of real time playback. Although the preview image quality becomes lower, it reduces the load on PC and you can edit data comfortably. Make use of this feature when you apply heavy-load effects such as [Mask] and [Layouter], or when you play the timeline where high-resolution clips such as 4K are placed.
  • GUI Color
    EDIUS X comes with a refined GUI in a darker color. This makes editing even more comfortable, has a cool look and relieves eye strain.
  • Optimized Performance
    EDIUS X is all about performance and a futureproof design. EDIUS X requires Windows 10 and makes optimal use of advanced technology. This includes hardware acceleration provided by Intel QuickSync as well as a broad GPU support. The new modular design allows utilizing the potential of multicore CPUs more efficiently than ever before.
  • Optimized Audio Sync Performance
    EDIUS X provides an even faster automatic audio sync function, auto-aligning as many clips as your projects require for a smooth multicam editing experience.
