Edius 8.22 Review - Powerful Updates for Post

 

EDIUS 8

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.

Electric Sixer Polarized Sunglasses Review


The Electric Sixer sunglasses are awesome. They’re everything we want in a pair of sunglasses including lightweight, good looking, polarized, comfortable. You can dress ‘em up or dress ‘em down. Italian style in a super functional design for $200 that includes a lifetime frame warranty.

Having a large melon makes it hard to find quality sunglasses that look good. The Electric Sixer features melanin infused polycarbonate lenses that are supposed to make them more comfortable and less fatiguing to wear. So does it actually work? We give it a resounding yes! We put these bad boys on and immediately fell in love. It’s like therapy for the eyes. The world just looks better and we can enjoy the winter sun low in the sky. Can’t wait for summer and hitting the lake.

We’ve used all the top brands of sunglasses over the years and c’mon what else can you say? Do they look good and do they do the job? The Electric Sixer delivers. We just lost a pair of sunglasses we had for about 3 years. We were really sad to see them go and were having a really hard time finding something to replace them. The Electric Six is our new benchmark in sunglasses for quality design, function and style. So yeah, we kind of like them

Specific model we tested is the Electric Sixer Tortoise Shell, Melanin Bronze Polorized Level II, 98% blue light protection, 5 Barrel Hinge, California design, made in Italy

Check 'em out, get the specs and see other cool Electric designs here.

NVIDIA Quadro K4200 Review

We've been doing an extended review of the Quadro K4200 and it's been rock solid. It's quiet, consumes reasonable power and helps accelerate apps that take advantage of the GPU. Since Q4 of 2014 we've been using the K4200 in one of our workstations primarily for digital content creation.

Our primary apps include the Adobe CC suite, Avid Media Composer, Sony Vegas Pro, Edius Pro and various plug-ins from Boris, NewBlue and others. The single slot Quadro K4200 sits right in the sweet spot of price/performance for these kinds of apps.

In a craft production environment, we really like the single slot design because our workstations are also used for audio mixing and mastering and we often require adjacent slots for audio and DSP cards or an SSD accelerator.  

When building a workstation for content creation, two of our main considerations are performance and compatibility. When we initially installed the K4200, Media Composer gave us a warning to revert back to an earlier driver. Of course, our other apps preferred the most recent driver. So it's always possible to encounter some hiccups like this. The good news, over time, after a couple of app and Quadro driver updates all the apps seem to be happy.   Media Composer likes version 340.84 currently.

We like the performance we're getting from the Quadro k4200.  However, we can't say it blew us away compared to the K4000.   The K4000 operated much cooler than it's predecessor while offering improved performance.   The Quadro K4200 offers improved specs and continues on that path but since we're not in Maya all day it's maybe not as noticeable to us.   It really depends on your apps.   So if you're happily chugging along with a k4000 in your editing suite you may want to stick with it.  However, if you're considering a new system or doing more 3D or using an app that really benefits from the increased specs and you're looking for a lot of power in a single slot design the Quadro k4200 should be at the top of your list.

In 2015 we expect to see a nice bump in overall performance with the latest Xeons, DDR4, dropping SSD prices, thunderbolt 2 and generally improved motherboard performance, not to mention Windows 10 might actually not suck.  We're still primarily running Windows 7. The next step is for the OS and content creation apps to truly take advantage of all the processing power provided by the CPU cores and the GPU power in cards such as the Quadro K4200.   4K video is a train in the distance that will run your over before you know it.    Nice to see NVIDIA keeping it real with the Quadro lineup.
