Review: Avid Media Composer: Now for individual editors
Chris Monlux with Videomaker takes a look at the newest release of Avid Media Composer. And tries to answer the question “Is Avid able to keep up with the market?”
Here’s an excerpt from the review:
Media Composer is a solid editor that gets used on the biggest films in the world. Editing with Media Composer was once much more exclusive, but through heavy competition, Avid is now one option among many. Media Composer has a robust toolset that, at their new pricing, is available to the little guy — not just the studios. We would love to see Avid invest in some innovative new features so that they are able to rise up above their competition like Final Cut Pro and Premiere Pro, rather than just keep up.
