Grass Valley has launched EDIUS X, an update of its nonlinear, multiformat editing software featuring background rendering and background export to facilitate a smooth, uninterrupted workflow experience. The enhanced Layouter motion tracking allows the user to easily attach a label, animation, or video clip to a tracked object, and when combined with Anchor Mode reframes a shot with reference to the tracked object. EDIUS X supports the newest codecs and camera releases natively and also includes enhanced GPU acceleration and ultrafast H.265 export, available with the new background rendering options. The new modular design allows utilizing the potential of multi core CPUs. EDIUS X comes bundled with three new modules for optimizing audio, title creation and video effects including new seamless transitions.
