Drag and drop the Vitascene Filter onto a clip in the Timeline. The Vitascene software will not start. Once a clip has been selected in the Timeline, Edius displays (as a property) the effect for this clip by name. Double click on the name to open the Vitascene-Control dialogue box.

This displays the following options:

1. Reduce quality to increase speed

This attempts to maintain a real-time preview, even for elaborate effects, by employing faster processing.

2. Expanded color palette

This makes full use of the YUV color space, achieving a maximum level of up to 1.0 volt, which is the quality standard for broadcasting.

Click on the Edit button to start the Vitascene software.

Once the project has been edited and completed in Vitascene, simply press the F12 key or click on the symbol Vitascene shot2 Plugin as video effect to return to Canopus Edius.

This will automatically save the Vitascene project.
