4K. UHD. HDR. New codecs. More content. Tighter deadlines. Can you handle it all? If you¹re using an older version of Media Composer, Symphony, or NewsCutter, you might not be equipped to get the work you want. But with the latest Media Composer, you can take on any project and experience the fastest, easiest, and most inspiring ways to tell incredible stories.

Media Composer is proven and trusted by professional editors in every segment of film, television, and broadcast. Designed to handle high volumes of disparate file-based media, Media Composer delivers accelerated high-res-to-HD workflows, real-time collaboration, and powerful media management, eliminating time-consuming tasks so you can focus on telling a great story. And now the choice is yours—edit on premises, remotely through the cloud, on demand, through a low-cost subscription, or purchase a license outright—making Media Composer the most versatile and accessible tool for professional creative editorial.

The Professional's Choice for Creative Editorial
Discover Media Composer

Accelerate storytelling with the tools embraced by top movie, television, and broadcast editors. And power through HD and high-res editing faster and easier than ever.

Work faster and easier
Whether you’re a Media Composer veteran, coming back to Avid, or new to video editing, working with Media Composer is now simpler, more productive, and fun. Navigate, find, preview, and import media more easily with the new Source Browser. And edit more intuitively with the streamlined interface with enhanced visual feedback.

Create better sounding productions
With several new audio features just added—including audio dupe detection, audio ducking, groups, and nested AudioSuite clip effects—it's faster and easier than ever to make your projects sound as epic as they look.

Edit high-res and HD media natively
From the biggest movies to small indie films, more and more productions today are shooting in 4K and beyond. With Media Composer, you can acquire, edit, and deliver 2K to Ultra HD to 8K and other high-resolution content with great speed and ease. And get native support for such cutting-edge codecs as Panasonic AVC-LongG, Sony XAVC-I, XAVC-L, and more.

Discover how you can speed up your workflow.

Work in any resolution and aspect ratio
Facing a mixed bag of footage from a 4K camera, an iPhone, and an old SD archive? No problem. Now you can work with practically any media in the same project—in any resolution—without the need for additional gear. Plus, you can now reframe high-res images at the highest quality possible and set project-level mask margins.

Take on any job, without limits.

Get greater beauty—without the bandwidth

High-res material is gorgeous to look at, but its massive file size can be a challenge to work with. But with the Avid DNxHR codec in Media Composer, you can work with a wide range of resolutions in real time.

Edit HDR projects

What lurks in the shadows and hides in bright light? A great amount of image detail that often never finds an audience. Now you can expose every detail and achieve more stunning, dramatic imagery with new support for high dynamic range (HDR) workflows.
