Third Party Plug-ins for EDIUS Software
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.
New for EDIUS 8 is the introduction of the NewBlue OFX Bridge. OpenFX is an open standard for visual effects plug-ins, and the OFX Bridge is a software gasket that enables plug-ins that adhere to this standard to work with EDIUS.
Check below to learn more about the additional creative options at your disposal from third-party plug-in vendors. Please note that all plug-ins listed work with both EDIUS Pro and Workgroup versions.
