Avid Media Composer 6 is a significant upgrade to the industry-standard editing platform. Avid virtually invented digital video editing in the late '80s, and today more big-budget feature films and TV shows are post produced on Media Composer than on any other platform. Why, you ask? It all boils down to seamless, flexible workflows, extensibility, heavy-duty media management, and the robustness to handle massive projects without so much as breathing heavy. Do you aspire to edit major Hollywood products? Better learn Media Composer. Avid Media Composer 6.

You can mix and match media formats, frame rates, and resolutions in the same timeline, in real time - without rendering!
