More Info

Avid Media Composer Software v 6.5 for PC and Mac (End User) is an open platform, 64-bit non-linear software editor for Mac or Windows computers. Media Composer 6.5 allows you to edit HD and SD material and features ACE (American Cinema Editors) certified editing tools. It also features built-in effects, transitions and titling tools. With Media Composer 6.5, you can play back almost any codec directly in the timeline without having to transcode first. You can also mix and match different formats, frame rates and resolutions in the same timeline. The Media Composer 6.5 features Full 4:4:4 HD RGB support, color correction tools, and ProRes encoding (Mac version only.)

Featuring built-in support for stereoscopic/3D footage, it is a full fledged Stereoscopic editing system. It is also compatible with a wide range of effects plug-ins. For audio support Media Composer 6.5 features Built-in 7.1 surround sound support and audio mixing of up to 64 audio voices. It also features improved audio keyframing on the timeline, and supports Pro Tools RTAS plug-ins. It supports available Avid and non-Avid hardware I/O cards, and devices and comes bundled with Avid FX (Boris RED), Sorenson Squeeze and AVID DVD, which allows you to author DVDs.

Editing
Full 64-Bit Power
The 64-bit Architecture of Media Composer 6.5 provides more processing power, larger editing bins, and a smoother editing experience with less waiting than with a 32-bit system, even when you layer complex effects.

Open to Anything
With the ever expanding list of formats, codecs and media types, utilizing the included AMA (Avid Media Access), you can instantly access and edit file-based media, including ARRI ALEXA MXF, RED (EPIC, SCARLET-X, and ONE), AVCHD, ProRes, QuickTime (with support for footage from HDSLR cameras), XDCAM, P2, Canon XF, and other formats without transcoding or copying files. As new cameras and formats emerge, manufacturers can create and release their own AMA plug-ins independently.

Hardware Integration
Media composer works as a standalone software editor, but it will also interface with available Avid I/O devices and control surfaces to expand the capabilities of your system. Additionally using Avid's Open I/O, select third party I/O devices from AJA, Blackmagic Design, Bluefish444, Matrox, MOTU and Mbox can be used with Media Composer 6.5.

Image Quality
With support for 4:4:4 HD-RGB color and DNxHD 444, you can work with virtually any media, from analog to the latest formats and codecs, while preserving the full-quality color detail from beginning to end.

American Cinema Editors Certified
Media Composer 6.5 offers ACE-certified editing tools and a wide range of features, workflows, and options.

Flexible and Powerful
Media Composer enables you to work the way you want. Trim and manipulate on the fly using the Smart Tool, or perform ultra-precise edits using traditional tools. Mix and match media formats, frame rates, resolutions, and more in the same timeline without rendering. You can edit HD material in real time -- in mastering picture quality -- using Avid DNxHD or DNxHD 444.

Edit 3D
Edit stereoscopic 3D material as quickly and easily as you do with standard 2D footage. Capture, edit, and manage the complete 3D end-to-end workflow. Plus you can mix and match 2D and stereoscopic 3D clips on the same track and it features full-fledged editing tools and video effects for stereoscopic post production.

Color Correction
Media Composer 6.5 features an advanced 10-bit color corrector that allows you to accurately match colors from shot to shot using NaturalMatch. It supports 4:4:4 HD-RGB color space processing with keyframable color correction.
Avid Media Access
Codec Support
Avid Media Access (AMA) is a plug-in based feature that allows you to edit media without first having to copy or import the media into your project. With AMA, you don't have to transcode footage to start editing.

AMA Writeback
You can use AMA to export files back to the media's original source format for archiving or final delivery. AMA writeback is currently available for HDCAM SR.

AMA Volume Export
You can create AS-02, JPEG 2000, DNxHD, AVC-I, and other file-based media volumes for roundtrip workflows, sharing, or archiving.
AS-02 Mastering
Version and Archive Finished Sequences
You can manage multiple versions of the same sequence utilizing AS-02 mastering, as it packs everything into a single bundle without duplicating assets, saving storage space. You can also seamlessly move content between Avid and other systems that support AS-02. Use JPEG 2000, DNxHD, IMX, AVC-Intra, and uncompressed media in your AS-02 workflow.

Master-Quality Archives with JPEG 2000
Encode and decode sequences -- in mastering quality -- using the JPEG 2000 codec, which helps preserve the quality of archival content in an AS-02 workflow.

Set and Output AFD Sequences
Active Format Description allows you to select image settings that carry display information in the output file. this information can be used to protect the way your project is displayed, even if down converted or displayed on a device with a different aspect ratio.

Relink Clips Using Common Metadata
With advanced relink support, you can dynamically reconnect clips to the original or new media using a wide variety of common metadata fields.

Hardware Release
With the new hardware release control, which works with Avid and third-party I/O hardware, you can activate/deactivate your hardware -- without disconnecting it -- to access software-only features, such as full screen playback mode and audio project settings options. You can also share your third-party hardware and monitor between Media Composer 6.5 and other applications without quitting or rebooting the software.

Advanced Audio Keyframing
With audio keyframe enhancements, you can now copy, paste, cut, move, and adjust audio keyframes -- including groups -- anywhere on the timeline. You can even delete hidden audio keyframes that can occur as you trim a clip.

Mix Up to 64 Audio Voices
Monitor more complex soundtracks with support for up to 64 audio voices. Combined with robust audio tools, 7.1 surround sound and RTAS plug-in support, and unmatched integration with Pro Tools.

Auto Relink
Edit titles directly from the timeline. And automatically relink to all AMA QuickTime files.
Avid Hardware
Better Performance -- and 3D -- with Avid Hardware
For the fastest capture/edit/monitor/output workflows, pair Media Composer 6.5 with a Nitris DX or Mojo DX video interface. You can even customize Nitris DX with up to two Avid DNxHD or AVC-Intra chips to fully support stereoscopic 3D and HD RGB 4:4:4 workflows.
Bundled Software
Media Composer 6.5 includes Avid FX (Boris RED), Sorenson Squeeze, and Avid DVD.

Avid FX (Boris RED)
Add visual drama and depth with the built-in 2D and 3D effects, title tools, transitions, keying, and motion effects. Track and stabilize motion.

Avid DVD and Sorenson Squeeze
You can author DVDs and optimize media for high quality playback -- online or on disc. Author professional DVDs using Avid DVD, which works with Windows-based systems and Windows emulation on the Mac. With Sorenson Squeeze, you can optimize content in a variety of formats, including HD, DVD, MPEG-2, MPEG-4/H.264, Flash, and 3GPP.
Avid Extras
Avid Marketplace Integration
Media Composer 6.5 integrates with Avid Marketplace so you can browse for stock footage, plug-ins, hardware, and training videos without opening another program.

Collaboration
Media Composer 6.5 allows you to share audio mixes with Pro Tools editors and vice-versa using AAF.

Reliable Media Management
Media Composer 6.5 is built on 20+ years of industry-proven media management innovation, which keeps track of all your projects, assets, source material, rendered files, metadata, and more, so you don't have to.
