Avid Media Composer is modernizing at the same pace as it’s editors and users, making it a power tool for any post production workflow. Media Composer has been at the forefront of the non linear editing scene, and Avid’s responsiveness to its users make it better than ever.
For starters, Media Composer is in the forefront of TV production, despite other NLEs like Final Cut Pro, or Adobe Premiere Pro. Media Composer comes in four versions, starting at Media Composer | First, going up to Media Composer | Enterprise.
Avid also offers three add on options for ultimate ease of use and flexibility. This includes PhraseFind, ScriptSync, and Symphony.
Avid bases its product version numbers by the year and month of release. Media Composer 2020.9 – the most recent version as of this writing – was just released. The version prior to that was Media Composer 2020.8, released in August. But before that it was 2020.6 from June, skipping .7. (Some of the features that I will describe were introduced in earlier versions and are not necessarily new in 2020.9.)
