Avid Media Composer Ultimate 1-Year Subscription Education Pricing
Faster and better than ever
Accelerate storytelling with the tools embraced by top movie, television, and broadcast editors. And power through HD and high-res editing faster and easier than ever.
Work Faster and Easier
Whether you’re a Media Composer veteran, coming back to Avid, or new to video editing, working with Media Composer is now simpler, more productive, and fun. Navigate, find, preview, and import media more easily with the new Source Browser. And edit more intuitively with the streamlined interface with enhanced visual feedback.
Create Better Sounding Productions
With several new audio features just added—including audio dupe detection, audio ducking, groups, and nested AudioSuite clip effects - it's faster and easier than ever to make your projects sound as epic as they look.
Edit High Res & HD Media Natively
From the biggest movies to small indie films, more and more productions today are shooting in 4K and beyond. With Media Composer, you can acquire, edit, and deliver 2K to Ultra HD to 8K and other high-resolution content with great speed and ease. And get native support for such cutting-edge codecs as Panasonic AVC-LongG, Sony XAVC-I, XAVC-L, and more
Work in Any Resolution and Aspect Ratio
Facing a mixed bag of footage from a 4K camera, an iPhone, and an old SD archive? No problem. Now you can work with practically any media in the same project—in any resolution—without the need for additional gear. Plus, you can now reframe high-res images at the highest quality possible and set project-level mask margins.
Get Greater Beauty - Without the Bandwidth
High-res material is gorgeous to look at, but its massive file size can be a challenge to work with. But with the Avid DNxHR codec in Media Composer, you can work with a wide range of resolutions in real time.
Edit HDR Projects
What lurks in the shadows and hides in bright light? A great amount of image detail that often never finds an audience. Now you can expose every detail and achieve more stunning, dramatic imagery with new support for high dynamic range (HDR) workflows.
Avid Media Composer Ultimate also includes the following options not found in Avid Media Composer:
PhraseFind automatically analyzes all clips in your project and phonetically indexes all audible dialog, so you can spend less time searching for the right media and more time focusing on what matters most—your story. With the more powerful phonetic indexing engine, PhraseFind can now catalog volumes of dialog-driven media and deliver search results faster than ever before, saving valuable time and money. It also supports shorter phoneme phrases, so you get more accurate results, better indexing of unclear audio, and support for more dialects and accents. And its updated look and feel offers better visual integration with Media Composer.
ScriptSync phonetically indexes all text and audible dialog in your project automatically and then syncs each source clip to its associated line in the script. Once synced, you can quickly locate all relevant clips in seconds based on a scene number, page number, or word or phrase search, enabling you to compare performances in the context of your story. With the more powerful phonetic indexing engine, you can now match all clips to your script faster than before. You can also undo and redo tasks, view clips in their native frame format (including 4x3 and 16x9), and gain access to a larger color palette, giving you more color choices for richer organization and script markup.
