Media Composer is the most widely used NLE for professional film and video editing. With Media Composer 7, you gain accelerated high-res-to-HD workflows, automated media management, and Interplay Sphere for Mac support, extending real-time production everywhere. Experience the fastest file-based media workflows, ACE-certified tools, and the most trusted media management in the industry. Media Composer has long been the most trusted tool of professional editors. Media Composer 7 opens your possibilities even further, simplifying and accelerating file-based workflows and extending real-time production everywhere so you can focus on telling the best story possible. From new high-res workflows and AMA media management, to automated media operations and global collaboration, experience the industry’s preeminent NLE.
More content today is shot with high-res cameras, but the majority of programming is still HD. With the new FrameFlex tools, you can immediately start working in HD directly from high-res sources and maintain full creative control of the image reframing and keyframing, from beginning to end. In addition, 1D/3D Look Up Tables (LUTs) and Color Decision Lists (CDLs) make it easy to perform real-time RAW and LogC to Rec. 709 color space conversions.
Gain more time for creativity with new features that accelerate and simplify file-based workflows. With Dynamic Media Folders, non-creative media tasks such as transcoding, copying, and consolidating can be automated in the background, without disrupting your editorial flow. Plus, you’ll get peace of mind as Media Composer now fully manages AMA-linked media as reliably as it does with native Avid media.
Edit, share, tag, track, and sync media and projects with everyone on your editing team-no matter where you are in the world. Media Composer Interplay Edition provides full Interplay Production, Interplay Central, and Interplay Sphere support on Mac and PC, making remote cloud-based collaboration easy and cost-effective. Whatâ€™s more, you can edit just as efficiently as you would if you were all at the home facility, using the same tools and workflows you know and trust. Media Composer Interplay Edition is available from Avid resellers and Avid sales reps only.
Forget wasting time mixing down audio levels by trial and error. With the new Master Audio Fader, you can insert RTAS plug-ins to tweak tones and optimize the overall program loudness, making broadcast regulation adherence quick and easy. You can also now make audio adjustments to any clip directly in the timeline-independently of any track-based automation-with the Clip Gain control.
Video SatelliteÂ is now included with Media Composer, enabling audio editors and mixers to play Avid HD and SD video sequences directly in sync with their Pro Tools session, while maintaining full system power. And since Video Satellite eliminates the need to render effects, transcode video, or copy files for the audio team, you gain maximum post-production efficiency to turn around projects faster.
The industry’s most trusted NLE is now more accessible than ever, with a starting price of just $999 (USD) for the full version of Media Composer 7. If you need to collaborate with others around the world, Media Composer 7 Interplay Edition provides additional support for theÂ Avid Interplay familyÂ of products. And if you need advanced color correction tools, mastering tools, and the Boris Continuum Complete effects suite, add the Symphony option to Media Composer to get the fullÂ Symphony advantage.
