Edius: Converting Resolutions

Edius is nonlinear video editing software which allows multi-format video editing. Now it is easy to perform real-time editing for both standard and high definition formats and for uncompressed video formats.

Step 1: Install the Program

You can start by installing the software on your PC or notebook. The program is Windows Vista and XP compatible. For SD editing, you will need:

  • 3GHz CPU or Core 2Duo processor, at least 1 GB Ram recommended
  • DirectX version 9.0 or later
  • ATA or faster DDS
  • USB 2.0 port for connectivity required for external VD cameras

For HD editing, you will also need RAID 0 and Graphics card with 32-bit color display at a resolution of 1024x768 and PixelShader Model 3.0 support.

Step 2: Launch Your Project

Once you have installed and opened the software, you will need to open up the video file that you want to work on. Go to the main menu and select the “open” option and search for your preferred video that you want to edit. Once you have located it, click on the open tab and you are now ready to begin your editing process. Your video should now be visible in the preview window.

Step 3: Change the Resolution

You can choose between any of the following features to edit your videos resolution, such as 1080i on 4:3 SD, using NTSC with PAL, and combine them all into 720/24p projects without conversion or rendering. It has a flexible user-friendly interface, with video, audio and graphics tracks, allowing editing in real-time and conversion of 4:3 and 16:9 HD and SD aspect ratios. You can also edit and convert frame rates such as 24p or 50i, 60i and resolutions to the likes of 1920x1080, 1440x1080, 1280x720 or 720x480. You can use the smart rendering options for quick high-quality rendering.

Step 4: Save Your Video and Convert It

Once you have successfully changed the resolution of your video, you need to save the video file in order to use it later. Once you have saved your video file, click on the “Convert” button located towards the bottom of your computer screen. Once the video has completed the conversion process, you will then see that your video file has been saved to whichever of the different video file formats that you have chosen for the conversion process.

Converting videos to be played on flash players developed by Edius is now extremely simple with the use of the Edius software and hardware programs for video editing. You will be able to convert your video files to be able to play along with any of the different video and flash players available today.
