Avid Media Composer 5 Is Here!

  • Work natively with QuickTime video formats, including Apple ProRes and H.264
  • Edit video and audio by dragging and dropping elements in the timeline
  • Keep high-end finishing projects in-house and gain great color precision with HD-RGB support (including dual-link I/O support with Nitris DX systems)
  • Monitor video externally with support for the Matrox MXO2 Mini
  • Mix and match frame sizes and aspect ratios — in addition to formats, frame rates, and resolutions — in the same timeline
  • Take a break during long renders and have your system email you when the job’s done
  • Import AVCHD files directly from cameras and other devices
  • Capture to and edit XDCAM HD and DVC PRO HD formats from baseband without additional hardware
  • Access low-res XDCAM proxies for offline work, with full-quality audio

  • View stereo audio tracks as single channels in the timeline for easier handling
  • Create high-quality sounds and mixes with support for RTAS audio processing plug-ins
