Avid has just announced their latest release of its industry-leading video editing tools, Media Composer 6.5, Symphony 6.5, and NewsCutter 10.5 to Avid Media Composer with version 6.5. This latest version improves workflow speed and openness with Media Composer 6.5 family of products. Many of these features look very promising, and I can’t wait to update to latest version and give it a spin.
Avid Media Authoring
Customers in facilities who handle a variety of input formats and deliver multiple output formats can now master and archive projects more efficiently with Avid Media Authoring. This new component of Avid Media Access (AMA) offers support for AS-02, a standard developed by the Advanced Media Workflow Association that helps post-production facilities simplify efficient media management for versioning of programs and streamline delivery to a variety of platforms and devices. And with the addition of natively supporting the JPEG 2000 codec, customers can package sequences for easy versioning and archiving, as well as scale sequences to meet the needs of multiple generational content passes—without media degradation. The Media Composer 6.5 family of products also supports Active Format Description (AFD) to enable one consistent viewer experience—regardless of down-conversion or reformatting.
I/O Hardware Release
With the I/O Hardware Release control in Media Composer, Symphony and NewsCutter, customers using third-party hardware through Avid Open I/O can further customize their workflows. Editors can now simply activate and deactivate hardware to pass control back and forth between Media Composer and third-party applications such as Adobe After Effects or Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve. In addition, editors can now access software-only mode features, such as full-screen playback, directly in Media Composer without disconnecting. read more...
