Avid Media Composer

Media Composer is the media and entertainment industry’s most used video editing software, accelerating high-res, HDR, and HD workflows. There’s a reason why more professional moviemakers and television editors use Media Composer than any other video editing solution—it gives you the editing and finishing speed you need to complete projects faster. From its ACE-certified tools and unique timesaving workflows, to the most reliable media management in the biz, Media Composer empowers creative storytelling like no other.

Edit anything
SD and HD. 2K through 8K and beyond. Even stereoscopic 3D and HDR. No matter what media you’ve got, Media Composer welcomes the widest range of file and camera formats, codecs, and resolutions, so 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 is easy.

Work in HDR
With support for a variety of High Dynamic Range (HDR) color specs, profiles, and workflows, Media Composer enables you to color grade video and achieve richer, more dramatic imagery, with exceptional detail in the shadows and highlights. It’s a fast-growing technology—and an important way to future-proof your valuable content.

Expand your creative possibilities
Don’t have the footage or effects you need? Shop the in-app Avid Marketplace—no shoes, shirt, or pants required. 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.

Gain great efficiency
Experience the fastest editorial workflows in the industry. 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 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, offering powerful 64-bit performance, groundbreaking Avid DNxHR and Avid Resolution Independence technologies, plus background rendering and transcoding, to keep your media and creativity flowing.

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.
