Predictions: Is Media Composer going anywhere?

After 2 years, I finally feel my migration from FCP7 to Avid is complete. I'm still learning, of course, but I'm much more at home on Avid now than I was on FCP.

Maybe it's my fears of it's too-good-to-be-true. Some weird paranoia that AVID will fold and leave me high-and-dry with terabytes of MXF files, and the prospect of having to change platforms again.

Is AVID safely entrenched in the production world of television and movies to keep it safe for a while?
Curious what others opinions are who are more in the know than me.

Thanks!

[Daniel Schultz] "Is AVID safely entrenched in the production world of television and movies to keep it safe for a while?"

Years...if not decades. It still serves the TV/Film world very well, and there's an infrastructure built around it. And if it did go away, Hollywood doesn't turn on a dime. There are still MANY places that still use FCP 7, even though it was discontinued 3.5 years ago.

But it is progressing...They just announced support for 4K...and resolution independence. And it still is the best solution for multiple station workflows. The only rock solid solution there is, really. Adobe will make some inroads...and FCX will too. But Avid is still the main thing going. At least in TV/Film

Even if Avid folded shop tomorrow, your mxf files would still play, and your overwrite button would still overwrite.

And there will still be a Media Composer, but perhaps under a different company name... ;)

Well, as long as the license server stays up.
