Edius 8.22 Review - Powerful Updates for Post



Edius 8.22 from Grass Valley is the latest update that adds LUT and tracking support. Both of these features add incredible power for color correction natively in Edius and should make a lot of Edius users happy.

We’ve tested log and 4K footage from broadcast Canon, Panasonic and Sony cameras and the new primary color corrector does a good job of identifying the camera, codec and format and automatically applying a LUT to rec.709 to get us in the ballpark. What’s great is we still have the full power of the color correction tool at our fingertips to further enhance the color. It’s a huge time saver. You can also choose to apply any number of LUTs to jump start your creative juices, all in real time. No there is no need to round trip to Resolve or another color package. The built in capabilities are really good.

The new tracking capability of the mask works really well. Before this was a time consuming task to tweak the key frames to make it perfect. Now, if we want to highlight a portion of the frame, say a person’s face, we can do that with really good tracking capabilities. Again, it will get you in the ballpark with just a few tweaks to make it perfect, and additional video effects can be applies to mask which makes the creative possibilities endless.

Grass Valley didn’t do much to the UI. It’s a little more modern but no major changes there. We like it and find it extremely easy to use. It’s still one of our favorite NLEs for cutting pieces together.

We cut this in Edius

Audio still feels like an afterthought and we’d like to see more robust and friendly ways to do a final mix in Edius. For now we round trip to a more powerful audio suite.

Grass Valley has not gone the subscription route with their software although it does require the occasional connection to verify the license. Still to come in Edius 8 is optical flow which users have been griping about for some time because it was promised to them over a year ago. The good news is Grass Valley says it’s still in the works and previous updates have come through with worthwhile updates that did not require additional payment

Every editor should add Edius to their tool chest. It’s stable, fast and constantly updated with the support for the latest cameras and codecs. Edius 8.22 is a worthy contender for your everyday NLE and a great companion in the field for acquisition.
