Avid Media Composer

Media Composer® is the most used video editing software across the media and entertainment industry—now designed for what you need today and tomorrow.

Edit at the speed of your imagination

With its redesigned interface, the new Media Composer provides an intuitive user experience. Access the tools you need, when you need them, with new task- oriented workspaces. Find media faster with new bin mapping and navigation. And work more fluidly with the clean, modern UI, which features a smart panel interface that simplifies the complexity, so you can stay focused on what matters most—your story.

Finish and deliver with precision

Be confident in your content delivery—whether you complete projects all in Media Composer or roundtrip to other applications for color and effects work. With the new 32-bit floating point color pipeline, OpenEXR decoding, and ACES color space support, you can finish high-res and HDR projects with complete color precision and interoperability, ensuring pristine picture quality throughout your workflow. Plus, new IMF packaging tools make OTT-destined content a speedy delivery.

Get more power at your fingertips

Media Composer features a more powerful and reliable next-generation
Avid Media Engine. Get right to work with whatever media comes your way with native OP1a support. And keep working—not waiting—with the new Distributed Processing option, which lets you offload rendering and transcoding tasks to other networked machines.

Customize your tools for any role

For large media organizations, Media Composer | Enterprise is the industry’s
first role-specific video editing and finishing solution. With the unique ability to customize the interface for any role in your organization, you can provide only the tools and access needed to do their job.
