Key features 

Deliver your best stories
There’s a reason why more professional moviemakers & television editors use Media Composer than any other video editing solution—it gives you the editing & finishing speed you need to complete projects faster. From its ACE-certified tools & unique timesaving workflows, to the most reliable media management in the biz, Media Composer empowers creative storytelling like no other.

Collaborate with anyone, anywhere
Share media, projects, & bins to complete projects faster, together. Share assets locally & remotely with Avid NEXIS.

Edit anything
SD & HD. 2K through 8K & beyond. Even stereoscopic 3D & HDR. No matter what media you’ve got, Media Composer welcomes the widest range of file/camera formats, codecs, & resolutions, so you can acquire & turn around content faster. Without copying or transcoding media first. Whether you’ve got footage in a camera, media drive, smartphone, or video server, bringing your story together is easy.

Get beauty without the wait
It’s no secret that high-resolution, high frame rate media can put the brakes on any workflow. Media Composer eliminates these bottlenecks, offering powerful 64-bit performance, groundbreaking Avid DNxHR, AMA, & Avid Resolution Independence technologies, plus background rendering & transcoding, to keep your media & creativity flowing.

Gain great efficiency
Instantly access & edit file-based media without transcoding or copying media. Build stories with up to 24 video tracks. Preview clips before committing them to a project. Edit multicam projects with ease. Even automate non-creative media tasks, such as transcoding, consolidating, & relinking, in the background using Dynamic Media Folders.

Find the best takes & right clips fast
Save hours of clip searching time with two powerful solutions included with Media Composer | Ultimate. Find the best takes fast with ScriptSync, which analyzes all clip dialog in your project, then syncs all relevant clips to the script. For dialog-heavy productions, PhraseFind indexes all clip dialog, so you can find all relevant clips in seconds by typing a keyword or phrase.

Get reliable media management
Media Composer keeps track of all projects, source material, rendered files, metadata, & other media for you, so you’ll never lose sight of your assets
