is upgrading from Episode 5 to 6 worthwhile?
on Aug 12, 2011 at 7:11:22 pm

Hi there,
I'm a long-time user of Episode 5, and I've long pondered upgrading to version 6, but I don't have any problems with 5. So could anyone who's worked with both 5 and 6 tell me if they think 6 is a better app, and worth the upgrade?
thanks very much,
Malcolm

I like MainConcept codec used for H.264 in Episode 6 over the older Dicas codec used in Episode 5.
When you upgrade to 6 you can still keep 5 on your system for things you like about that better.

Episode 5 is EOL so if you stay reasonably current with your OSs you'd want to upgrade to 6. On the Mac side Episode 6 going forward will support Snow Leopard on up. Episode 5 will probably break at some point under new OSs.

Hi Craig,
I recognize you (or your name, anyway) from the Sony EX-1 forum. Thanks for this.
Your recommendation is appreciated, and I think I'll go ahead and upgrade.
Regards,
Malcolm

I use Episode for all my deliverables. I use H.264 .mp4 a lot and that's why I appreciate the difference between Dicas and MainConcept. It makes the EX1 sources hold up a bit better after encoding ;-)
