DMN Review: Avid Media Composer 3.0

DMN by By Kevin McAuliffe

Media Composer 3

Now available for both the Mac on the Leopard OS, and on the PC< running Windows Vista

Nothing gets me more excited than sitting down in front of a new editing application, or one that has recently been updated. As I have said in previous articles, no one makes a better editing application than Avid, and it is back with its new line of post production products, and leading the way is Media Composer version 3.0. Why should everyone care about this? Keep reading, and you'll find out!

For editors who are purchasing Media Composer for the first time, installation is a breeze. Simply install from your installation disc, make sure your USB dongle is attached, and you are all set to go! For current users with a valid log-in to Avid's download center, you can download version 3.0 of Media Composer, as well as the dongle updater. Once downloaded, you will need to install the Media Composer application first, then run Dongle Updater to update you dongle to version 3. Once that is done, you are all set to go.

One thing that I do want to point out that is extremely important is that editors on a Mac, who have a previous version of Media Composer (pre version 3.0) should NOT attempt to install on a system running Leopard OS. You will do major damage to your system, and will have to wipe the system clean and re-install from scratch. read more...
