My buddy got Edius 3 on his machine the other day. It was the first time I saw it and I'm amazed. On a system a bit slower than mine (below) we took DV (720x480) captured from Premiere and loaded 2 video tracks in and then started adding effects. We did color correction, old movie, and even blur in REAL TIME! It never even had to render and very little CPU usage. The strain on the system was comparable to a web browser being opened. You could scrub the timeline with the effects and it didn't break a sweat. I may have to look into this app more. I'm going to let him work with it awhile and get his review.
Just wondered if anyone else had this experience.
