The new Avid Media Composer makes editing work faster and more efficient, simplifies work, and improves workflows.

We can navigate through a sequence for this, a map of the sequence has been created in the timeline and different colors have been assigned.

Avid has also improved the speed of workflows, through the Universal Media Engine (UME) that allows greater performance when working with the media directly from the camera.

Improves workability in ACES and gives output coverage to 15 new color spaces. They have also incorporated new presets for creating content for social media with 1: 1 or 9 × 16 proportions, among others.
