Includes your first year of Avid Standard Support
For large-scale media enterprise, post-production houses, and educational institutions, Avid offers floating licensing, enabling you to purchase "packs" of shared licenses to deploy across your entire facility using a single system ID. This enables multiple editors to use Media Composer simultaneously on any number of workstations when licenses are available (not actively in use). Once you close your Media Composer application, the license is automatically returned to the pool of available licenses on the licensing server.

Enjoy easy set-up and administration

Your Avid Media Composer 2019 Floating License (20 Pack) purchase comes with easy-to-use Avid Floating License Server software, which enables you to distribute licenses quickly and easily across your facility—on demand—from a single, centralized server. You can install the server software on any standard Windows-based computer (see the minimum system requirements in Specs)—simply enter your licensing server address into Media Composer during installation and the rest of the process is automatic. Once installed, you can access the floating license server from any Windows- or Mac-based client system, making administration and management easy—and super convenient when you're physically not in the facility. And when using a disk image to install multiple Media Composer seats across a facility, simply entering the server address once in the image means the licensing process is completely transparent to end users.

Get flexible license access

To obtain a floating license, simply open Media Composer on your network-connected computer, and the software automatically connects to your licensing server and issues an available license in the background. In addition—similar to a library—floating licenses can be "checked out" to individual machines, such as a laptop, when you, an editor, or student needs to work off site or at home. Your administrator simply grants these privileges to the requestor, along with an expiration date. This makes it easy to add freelancers or students on a per- project basis, and have the granted licenses automatically returned at the end of the project.

Save time and money

By incorporating floating licensing, you can:
  • Maximize your investment, as licenses are only consumed when in use and returned to the server when not, enabling additional editors to connect when licenses become available
  • Offer the ability to "check out" licenses—ideal for projects that need to be completed on the road or at home for an extended period of time
  • Save countless hours of activation, installation, and upgrade time using Avid's Floating License Server software and your existing hardware to establish a single, centralized licensing server—just activate a pack of licenses, tell Media Composer the server address, and the system will automatically request licenses from the server on the internal network
  • Save money and gain more operational flexibility over purchasing individual seats of Media Composer that often go unused when a designated editor or system isn't working
  • Gain peace of mind, as all licenses are relinquished to the server when Media Composer closes or times out (after a period of inactivity), protecting you from theft.

Educational License Features

With Avid Media Composer Floating License (20 Pack), an editor can go from first cut to delivery without ever leaving the application. Whether they are a professional editor, freelancer or someone just starting out, Avid Media Composer inspires creative storytelling.

New Features

  • New User Experience —makers can work at the speed of creativity with a paneled interface that reduces clutter, reimagined bins to find media faster, and task-based workspaces showing only what the user wants and needs to see.
  • Next Generation Avid Media Engine—puts more power at a user's fingertips with features, such as native OP1A, support for more video and audio streams, Live Timeline and background rendering, and a distributed processing add-on option to shorten turnaround times and speed up post production.
  • New Finishing and Delivery Workflows—Now, users can create and deliver higher-quality content with editing, effects, color, audio, and finishing tools without leaving Media Composer. Whether working in 8K, 16K, or HDR, Media Composer's new built-in 32-bit full float color pipeline can handle it. Additionally, Avid has been working with OTT content providers to help establish future industry standards.
  • Customizable Toolset—built for large production teams, the new Media Composer | Enterprise provides administrative control to customize the interface for any role in the organization, whether the user is a craft editor, assistant, logger or journalist. It also offers unparalleled security to lock down content, reducing the chances of unauthorized leaks of sensitive media.

Features

Deliver your best stories
There's a reason why more professional moviemakers and television editors use Media Composer than any other video editing solution—it gives you the editing and finishing speed you need to complete projects faster. From its ACE-certified tools and unique timesaving workflows, to the most reliable media management in the biz, Media Composer empowers creative storytelling like no other.
Edit anything
SD and HD. 2K through 8K and beyond. Even stereoscopic 3D and HDR. No matter what media you've got, Media Composer welcomes the widest range of file and camera formats, codecs, and resolutions, so you can acquire and turn around content faster. Without copying or transcoding media first. Whether you've got footage in a camera, media drive, smartphone, or video server, bringing your story together is easy.
Get beauty without the wait
It's no secret that high-resolution, high frame rate media can put the brakes on any workflow. Media Composer eliminates these bottlenecks, offering powerful 64-bit performance, groundbreaking Avid DNxHR and Avid Resolution Independence technologies, plus background rendering and transcoding, to keep your media and creativity flowing.
Gain great efficiency
Experience the fastest editorial workflows in the industry. Instantly access and edit file-based media without transcoding or copying media. Build stories with up to 24 video tracks. Preview clips before committing them to a project. Edit multicam projects with ease. Even automate non-creative media tasks—such as transcoding, consolidating, and relinking—in the background using Dynamic Media Folders.
Get reliable media management
Media Composer keeps track of all projects, source material, rendered files, metadata, and other media for you, so you'll never lose sight of your assets. Gain peace of mind with over 20 years of industry-proven media management innovation supporting everything you do.
Design stunning visuals
Add dramatic flair to your stories with a host of built-in effects, color, and title tools. From creating jaw-dropping VFX, green screen composites, motion effects, and transitions, to correcting color, tinting scenes, and designing graphical titles and animations, it's easy to give your projects that professional polish.
Work in HDR
With support for a variety of High Dynamic Range (HDR) color specs, profiles, and workflows, Media Composer enables you to color grade video and achieve richer, more dramatic imagery, with exceptional detail in the shadows and highlights. It's a fast-growing technology—and an important way to future-proof your valuable content.
Create studio-quality soundtracks
Sound is half the picture. With Media Composer, you can make your projects sound as good as they look. Record, edit, and mix up to 64 audio tracks in 7.1 surround. Create groups to mix dialog, Foley, music, and sound effects more easily. And polish soundtracks using the same high- quality audio effects and sound processors that come with Pro Tools.
Expand your creative possibilities
Don't have the footage or effects you need? Shop the in-app Avid Marketplace—no shoes, shirt, or pants required. Preview stock footage in context with your project. Purchase plugins, software options, and hardware to extend your capabilities. You'll even find training material to help advance your editing skills.
Get the Avid hardware advantage
Looking for the fastest way to capture, monitor, and output high-quality video? Pair Media Composer with an Avid Artist interface and get the tight integration you need to handle the most demanding workflows—from portable 4K interfaces, to solutions that offer an extensive array of I/O or video over IP. You can also use third-party interfaces through Avid Open I/O.
Extend your workflow
From finding every clip or take that contains specific words of dialog in seconds, to adding advanced color correction, mastering, newsroom integration, visual effects, and titling tools, it's easy to extend your workflow by adding one or more Media Composer options.
Go further with Media Composer | Ultimate
Need to work together as a team in a post-production, news, or other media environment? Media Composer | Ultimate (formerly Media Composer) provides all the same editing tools as Media Composer, plus extended workflows for real-time collaboration. See the details tab for a comparison chart.
