EDIUS WorkgroupEDIUS 8.31 released

Grass Valley have released a small update to EDIUS which fixes a few bugs found in version 8.3. The main fix was to do with making a DVD or Blu-ray disc from a project that was not the correct settings for a disc. In 8.3 it would work but the menus probably did not work properly. This is fixed in 8.31.
Grass Valley have also added individual reset buttons to the curves in the primary colour corrector.
If you have the Pro version of EDIUS it will prompt you to download the update. If you have the Workgroup version you will need to visit the Grass Valley support site:

You can see the videos on the new features of the 8.3 EDIUS update on our YouTube channel and on the website here: http://www.dvc.uk.com/acatalog/What-s-new-in-EDIUS-8.3.html

  • Editing picture and sound
  • EDIUS' Effects

Blackmagic Resolve 12.5.4 released with support for Grass Valley HQ/HQX and MP3 files on Windows.

Blackmagic have released an update to DaVinci Resolve - their editing and grading program. This update includes two major features which will be of interest to owners of DVC editing systems:

  • Support for Grass Valley HQ & HQX MOV files
  • Support for importing MP3 files on a PC

Support for Grass Valley HQ and HQX MOV files

Resolve was able to import Grass Valley HQ and HQX MOV files since version 11. However, when they stopped using QuickTime for Windows to import QuickTime files Resolve could no longer import HQ and HQX. They have now written a new way of importing files in this codec which means we can once again import Grass Valley codec files. This is really important for users of Grass Valley EDIUS because it is the best way to get an edit out of EDIUS and into Resolve for grading.

The other good thing about this is that Blackmagic have now done this the "proper" way. Previously it was done via QuickTime for Windows, which was a 32bit application and caused a "bottleneck" when Resolve tried to play or create these kinds of files. Now it is supported directly which means they perform better in Resolve. We have tested this support on the PC, but have not been able to test it on a MAC to see if it works properly on there as well. Certainly on a PC it appears to be performing as expected.

Support for MP3

Another interesting addition is the abilityy to import MP3 files on a PC. The Mac version of Resolve has been able to do this for some time and now we can also do this on the PC version.

There are other changes, of course, which include support for the "Touch Bar" on the new MacBook Pro and a list of other updates and fixes which you can see on the Blackmagic support site, where you can also download both the Studio version and the free version: https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/support/family/davinci-resolve-and-fusion.

You can see our Resolve systems here: http://www.dvc.uk.com/acatalog/Blackmagic_Systems.html, and a series of free video we created about editing in Resolve here: http://www.dvc.uk.com/acatalog/Editing-in-Resolve-12.5.html.

New Blackmagic 10.8.4 drivers

Blackmagic have produced some updated drivers for their range of cards. The changes in the read-me for the 10.8.4 drivers all relate to the Cintel Film scanner and nothing is listed regarding any other device. In our own tests they appear to work ok, although we did have an issue in Premiere Pro where the sound through HDMI appeared to drop out intermittantly. If you have a system which is working perfectly, we cannot see a good reason to update your drivers. If you have a problem then it may be worth trying them, as it is very easy to revert to earlier drivers.

You can download the new drivers here: https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/uk/support/family/capture-and-playback
