Grass Valley Edius Neo 2
Grass Valley''s Edius Neo garnered fans with its speed when editing AVCHD-formatted material. Of course, you should first capture the video directly in Canopus HQ, the highly regarded video codec that''s at the heart of the software. Now in version 2, this less-expensive version of the more feature-rich Edius 5.1 works well in either SD or HD modes. New features include GPUfx (uses the computer''s graphics card to accelerate rendering performance); Layouter (users can keyframe 2D and 3D effects); a wider range of DVD menu presets; and the ability to output projects to AVCHD H.264/Blu-ray for distribution and client approval. You can mix among AVCHD, HDV, DV,
Windows Media, and QuickTime within the same edit timeline.
