What's New in version 8.2 of Media Composer Subscription

Much like with most applications, you wait for the major updates (version 4, 5, etc) for new features to add to your editing toolkit. Well, with the new Subscription Model of Media Composer, the world best editing application now gets new features every few months. Here's what's new in version 8.2.

There are six main updates in Media Composer version 8.2. They are:

Background Rendering:

Once a job is submitted, you can continue to work and check the render progress in the Background Queue window. Once finished, the sequence will link to the new pre-computes and the effect icons will reflect the rendered state.

Favorite Bins

This one is a big one. Choose any bin from any project, and tag it as a "favorite". Now, no matter which project you open, your favorite bin(s) will always appear at either the top or bottom of the project (depending on what you have the bin setting set to).

Well, simply type in the name of the bin you're looking for in the new Quick Filter field at the top of your project window, and Media Composer will find that bin super quick. read more...
