A user interface is the most important thing in understanding a piece of technology. From the dashboard of your car, all the way to the new Avid Media Composer- the way your brain perceives an interface determines how easy it is to use.
Avid Media Composer UI
The new user interface found in Media Composer 2019 is one of the leading reasons to upgrade. The classic interface debuted in 1988, and has stayed fairly similar ever since.
So, the new interface found in the 2019 Media Composer- is a major change. Avid unveiled the newest version of their flagship NLE at Avid Connect earlier this year- and ever since, the new UI has been a major industry talking point.
The new UI is built to be more straightforward and more user friendly- basically: they've cut the fat.
