If you have trouble launching EDIUS XS

Confusion about EDIUS for GV STRATUS licensing can cause problems.

The following is required in order to launch the EDIUS for GV STRATUS as a low-resolution editor (EDIUS XS) correctly:
  • Your GV STRATUS system must have a Flex, Pro, or Elite license.
  • You must be logged on with the EDIUS XS role assigned.
  • The client PC on which you are launching EDIUS must not be licensed for EDIUS Workgroup. This is an EDIUS license, intstalled on the client PC and managed by EDIUS license management. It is not a Sabretooth license.
The EDIUS for GV STRATUS application can launch and operate as follows:
  • A high resolution editor, identified as EDIUS Workgroup, which can operate in STRATUS mode or in standalone mode. In STRATUS mode, the EDIUS for GV STRATUS application can access GV STRATUS high resolution assets. In standalone mode, the EDIUS for GV STRATUS application cannot access GV STRATUS high resolution assets.
  • A low resolution proxy editor, identified as EDIUS XS, which operates in a single mode that must access GV STRATUS proxy assets.

Both of these applications can launch from the EDIUS icon .

The same EDIUS software installation package is used to install both types of EDIUS for GV STRATUS applications, so there can be confusion about which application is being launched. This is especially true if licenses for both applications apply to the same client PC, which is not supported. When you launch an EDIUS for GV STRATUS application, it detects the licensing on the client PC. If licensed for EDIUS Workgroup, you are prompted to logon and the EDIUS Workgroup application always launches. You cannot launch EDIUS XS. If not licensed for EDIUS Workgroup you are prompted to logon. Based on your logon, the application checks licensing and roles on the GV STRATUS Core server. If the license includes EDIUS XS and your logon account is assigned the EDIUS XS role, EDIUS XS launches. Therefore, if you have ever licensed the client PC for EDIUS Workgroup, do not use that PC for EDIUS XS.
