Avid Media Composer - More Affordable Than Ever
We've been getting lots of questions from X Pro owners on why they should upgrade for $495. This is from our new Avid page on our website http://www.videoguys.com/avid.html Check it out for additional info and bundle promotions.
Media Composer is more then just the world’s best video editor, it is an integrated post production solution! Here are some of our favorite integrated plug-ins and feature included with Media Composer:
- FluidFilm™ and FluidMotion™ - Create incredibly smooth slow-motion effects and “fit-to-fill" video using patented FluidMotion pixel morphing technology while you control speed and position using intuitive curve-based keyframing.
- 8-point Motion Tracker system for advanced tracking operations including offset tracks, applicable to most real-time and non-real-time effect operators
- Patented SteadyGlide™ technology to remove image shakiness while preserving desirable camera motion like pans and tilts.
- Real-time 16-bit SpectraMatte™ keying featuring SpectraGraph™ Viewer Chroma keying is a fundamental element in compositing and everybody needs it.
- AniMatte™ toolset for fast matte key creation within the editor
- Scratch Removal – remove unwanted imperfections in your footage
- Fully customizable TimeWarp effects
- Multicamera Editing with Multigroup capability for grouping multiple “banks" of camera angles. Multicam is available at any Avid resolution from single field to uncompressed.
