Grass Valley Canopus EDIUS 6.5 screenshotEDIUS from Grass Valley is offering a number of new creative features in version 8.2.

It also supports adjustments natively, enabling editors to work with LOG files from Sony, Canon and Panasonic cameras. Other new features include RAW decoding for Sony and Canon footage, improvements to the innovative GV Browser content management tool and draft preview for EDIUS Workgroup users.
