The Avid Media Composer Software v 6.5 End User with Dongle is the top choice for professional film and video editing in the industry. Whether you edit movies, TV shows, commercials, or other video, this industry-standard nonlinear editor provides 64-bit performance, easy-to-use video editing tools and streamlined HD, file-based and stereo 3D workflows. Its open platform enables you to work with the gear you have or want and integrate into any workflow. Plus, it's designed to eliminate bottlenecks, enabling you to work faster than ever.
Media Composer is now fully open thanks to Avid Open I/O, so you can work with your choice of Avid audio and video interfaces or third-party video interfaces, including those from AJA, Blackmagic Design, Bluefish444, Matrox and MOTU. What's more, manufacturers can now create plug-ins using Avid Open I/O to have their hardware work with Media Composer, so you'll have even more choices to come.
Media Composer goes where other editing systems leave off, enabling you to create and deliver on time and on budget. Access and edit file-based media directly-without transcoding. Mix and match formats, frame rates, resolutions and more in real time-without rendering. Edit HD in real-time mastering picture quality. Find the best takes and clips fast with the Avid ScriptSync and PhraseFind, powered by Nexidia, options. Version and archive finished sequences with AS-02 support. And with seamless Avid ISIS integration, you and your team can access the same media-at the same time-to collaboratively shape the story.
With Media Composer, you can create in ways you never thought possible. Work with practically any media format and integrate into any workflow. Edit faster using the Smart Tool, or make ultra-precise cuts with the powerful editing toolset. Work solo or experience a fully seamless collaborative workflow. Accelerate your editing with powerful Avid hardware options, or choose third-party options for more cost-effective I/O and monitoring. And take hands-on control over your editing, mixing and color grading with Artist Series controllers.
