Even an NLE as comprehensive as EDIUS® can't do everything. Luckily, third-party software developers are ready to give EDIUS additional functionality. They can create software plug-ins for additional video filters and effects, or for titling, compositing and keying, or for audio sweetening and restoration.
To take full advantage of EDIUS' speed and GUI to provide a more comfortable working environment, software vendors can port their plug-ins to work natively with the application using our API (Application Programming Interface). For audio plug-ins, EDIUS provides a VST bridge, and for certain After Effects plug-ins, an After Effects plug-in bridge.
Check below to learn more about the additional creative options at your disposal from third-party plug-in vendors.
