Create and collaborate with ease with Avid Media Composer
Deliver your best stories
There’s a reason why more professional editors use Avid Media Composer than any other video editing solution, because it gives you the editing and finishing speed you need to complete projects faster. Avid Media Composer boosts ACE-certified tools and unique time saving workflows as well as having the most reliable media management in the biz. This helps Avid Media Composer empower creative storytelling like no other.
Edit anything with Avid Media Composer
SD and HD. 2K through 8K. Even stereoscopic 3D and HDR. No matter the format, Avid Media Composer welcomes the widest range of file and camera formats, codecs, and resolutions. As a result you can acquire and turn around content faster without copying or transcoding media first. Whether you’ve got footage in a camera, media drive, smartphone, or video server, bringing your story together has never been easy.
Get beauty without the wait
It’s no secret that high-resolution, high frame rate media can put the brakes on any workflow. Media Composer eliminates these bottlenecks by offering powerful 64-bit performance, groundbreaking Avid DNxHR and Avid Resolution Independence technologies. As well as background rendering and transcoding, to keep your media and creativity flowing.
Gain great efficiency
Experience the fastest editorial workflows in the industry. This means you can instantly access and edit file-based media without transcoding or copying media. Build stories with up to 24 video tracks. Preview clips before committing them to a project. Edit multicam projects with ease. Even automate non-creative media tasks—such as transcoding, consolidating, and relinking—in the background using Dynamic Media Folders.
Get reliable media management
Media Composer keeps track of all projects, source material, rendered files, metadata, and other media for you. So you’ll never lose sight of your assets. This comes with over 20 years of industry-proven media management innovation supporting everything you do.
Design stunning visuals
Add dramatic flair to your stories with a host of built-in effects, color, and title tools. From creating jaw-dropping VFX, green screen composites, motion effects, and transitions, to correcting color, tinting scenes, and designing graphical titles and animations, it’s easy to give your projects that professional polish.
Work in HDR
Avid Media Composer enables you to color grade video and achieve richer, more dramatic imagery, with exceptional detail in the shadows and highlights. This is done through a variety of High Dynamic Range (HDR) color specs, profiles, and workflows options. It’s a fast-growing technology—and an important way to future-proof your valuable content.
Create studio-quality soundtracks
Sound is half the picture. With Media Composer, you can make your projects sound as good as they look. Record, edit, and mix up to 64 audio tracks in 7.1 surround. Create groups to mix dialog, Foley, music, and sound effects more easily. And polish soundtracks using the same high-quality audio effects and sound processors that come with Pro Tools.
Expand your creative possibilities
Don’t have the footage or effects you need? Shop the in-app Avid Marketplace. Preview stock footage in context with your project. Purchase plug-ins, software options, and hardware to extend your capabilities. You’ll even find training material to help advance your editing skills.
Get the Avid hardware advantage
Looking for the fastest way to capture, monitor, and output high-quality video? Pair Media Composer with an Avid Artist interface and get the tight integration you need to handle the most demanding workflows—from portable 4K interfaces, to solutions that offer an extensive array of I/O or video over IP. You can also use third-party interfaces through Avid Open I/O.
Extend your workflow
It’s easy to extend your workflow by adding one or more Media Composer options. From finding every clip or take that contains specific words of dialog in seconds, to adding advanced color correction. Other options include mastering, newsroom integration, visual effects, and titling tools.
