Applying User Settings to multiple EDIUS users

In some environments, there may be a need to create a pre-defined EDIUS user interface layout and settings, so that all users have the exact same working environment. This information is stored in EDIUS user settings, and it is possible to apply the same settings across all users, by understanding how Windows roaming user profiles work. This allows EDIUS settings to remain unchanged across all machines for all users in a shared editing environment.

To achieve this, once EDIUS has been set up as desired, user settings will be automatically saved on this path on the local machine: C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Grass Valley\EDIUS\9.00\User\User000\Setting.

The file Setting.esp stores this information. When a new user logs in, it is possible to apply the same settings by simply copying the Setting.esp file over to their relevant user folder. Whenever this user closes the EDIUS application, the user settings are saved, both on the local machine and, if it exists, on the domain controller, as a roaming profile.

Secondly, some editing environments may prefer to have a single log-in for all editing users. In such case, wherever there is a Windows Domain Controller, the User Settings from the last log-out of such roaming profile will be saved to the domain controller. Hence, if a change is made to the user settings in EDIUS, it is important to update that user profile on all the machines before any of them shut down. This can be achieved by copying the Setting.esp file to the Setting folder indicated above.

The behavior of Microsoft Windows roaming profiles needs to be considered when setting up this type of infrastructure. Please refer to Windows-specific sources of information for more details.
