This is from an old and experienced hand with Canopus product, since the DVRex and BETA days of EDIT. I'm one of Martin's forum's regulars the Canopus crew learned to pay attention to. (I met the high end of the original Canopus crew in person at COMDEX one year. The biggest boss was pleased to meet me. Which I say only for the purpose of saying I'm not some fresh noob here.)
The reason I post this comment is to clear up a major confusion for many—why the codec has always been proprietary. When I refer to Canopus, I refer only to the original Japanese company, which began as a manufacturer and provider of only professional video equipment. When DVC came out they saw an opportunity within the professional market. The News cameras out on the street could, suddenly, change from being giant, clunky, and extremely expensive problems into being neat, light, handheld devices that could go a lot more places. Many newsrooms across the entire planet eventually made that change because of the inventions and products of CANOPUS. They called DVRex and later products Semi-Pro.

With DVREX, the codec is built into the hardware. Period. That, right there, is the reason the codec is proprietary. CANOPUS has always been about the hardware. The Edit software was created for the purpose of Testing the product! Reference AVI is a major convenience.

Back in the late nineties we were the world wide Kings of mobile video! : D

Canopus's annoying habit of hiding their CODECs from other programs is overcome by this freeware. The README file says not to be used with Canopus products such as Raptor and Rex but I have a Storm II card and it caused no problems (yet).
It allowed me to use Media Studio Pro's Audio Editor to amend the audio in an AVI file and then write it back to the AVI - something that Canopus's Edius and Just Edit could not do.
