What's New in Avid Media Composer and Pro Tools, Plus a Demonstration of MediaCentral | Editorial Management
Avid returned to the Editors' Lounge in July for demonstrations of all the important new features coming to Media Composer. If you missed NAB 2018 or have unanswered questions about what's in store for your favorite editing platform, this is an evening you won't want to miss.
Demonstrations of new features in Media Composer included the ability to edit 16K projects for digital signage, performing insert edits to a previously exported sequence, a live timeline allowing editors to continue working in other parts of Media Composer while the media or sequence is still playing out, enhancements to multicam, shape-based color correction functionality, and more.
The evening also highlighted some of the newest innovations in Pro Tools with Avid’s EUCON-enabled control surfaces and interfaces, as well as showcasing the Avid Pro Tools | S3 and Pro Tools | Dock.
Guests got an early look at Avid’s new MediaCentral | Editorial Management solution for team collaboration. Using a completely integrated media panel, Media Composer editors can quickly search and access bins and clips outside of their active project. In addition, Editorial Management enables anyone on the team, from PA’s to producers, to browse and search media via a streamlined web interface; MediaCentral | Cloud UX. The MediaCentral | Cloud UX web UI even allows for the creation of bins and modification of projects, outside of Avid Media Composer.
As an added bonus, senior Avid project managers were also on hand to speak with attendees and answer their questions.
