    I was interested in your remark about using Edius Pro.

    I’ve been trying to figure out which way to go next (as a veteran of the discreet edit* EOL). I’ve narrowed the candidates down (currently) to PP and Canopus/Edius.

    I tried the Edius tryout, and found the UI utterly confounding. I’ve been spoiled, I realize, by the best interface in the field, but even accounting for that, I found Edius extremely strange. And I can’t seem to find any users in my area (Baltimore/Washington).

    I’ve been thinking about Canopus SP for HDV hardware, which allegedly has some plug-ins for PP. Does PP really work with that hardware, in case I can’t master Edius Pro?

    I have had a Storm card for about four years and used it with P 6 and 6.5. Unfortunately, Canopus was never able to release stable drivers for PPro and I loved the improvements so much in PPro that my Storm card has been practically idle since PPro was released.

    I have purchased every version of Edius that have come out and tried to figure it out each time. But it is very confounding. With each release, however, improvements have been made and user requests have been rapidly adopted. It is maturing fast. With the latest releases you are able to customize your keyboard shortcuts, so that is helping a lot. I am determined to stick with it this time and get past the counter-intuitive UI. It’s nice to have the real time functions of the Storm Card back, and no more bin weirdness or audio conforming – not to mention no crashes …. yet. There is an excellent user group that will help you over most bumps.


    If Adobe was releasing patches to fix the most obvious problems, or at the very least communicating with their clientele as to what they are working on, what the new release would offer I would perhaps have more interest and loyalty. Believe me I have logged my complaints and suggestions many times, but with no listed “wish list” I feel that there is no accountability. As there is no public record of what users are asking for Adobe programmers are free to work on whatever features they think are the most important. The issues that I have with PPro I have had from the beginning and made my requests known from the release of 1.0. Simple things to fix, obvious things to fix, things that would strengthen the program for everyone. The fact that they were not fixed makes me question the validity of the “feature request” process. No public record, no accountability.
