So you can complete projects reliably, creatively and collaboratively. In the highest quality. On time and on budget.

What’s New in Media Composer?

  • Go big — up to 8K and beyond – Experience smooth, reliable editing and playback performance, no matter how large your source files are. Work with all the beautiful, high-resolution image detail of the original media for better editing precision, without your workflow coming to a standstill.
  • Optimized for the best HDR experience – From capture to edit, finishing to output, Media Composer provides the high-efficiency media handling, ACES color space, and 32-bit floating color pipeline you need to deliver HDR content predictably, with pristine accuracy.
  • Save time with automation – Media Composer automates time-consuming tasks in the background. Instead of waiting hours for transcoding, rendering, consolidating, and relinking media, you can just keep working. Plus, it offers automated bin saving, audio mixes, audio/video sync, and more.

The latest release of Media Composer is v8-2020.10, which has great new features:

  • Support for macOS Catalina v10.15.7.
  • Bin Find and Replace – You can find and replace text in the bin.
  • Bulk Edit Profile Support – You can now save a profile of the Bulk Edit window
  • Changing the Font in the Source Browser Window – You can change the font and font size in the Source Browser window.
  • New Interface Setting – An additional brightness option has been added to the Interface Settings
  • MP4 Export – With this release we can now export files as MP4
  • Quality Settings for Mixdown – Media Composer now includes effects processing and quality settings for Mixdown.
  • ProRes RAW – Linking and playback of ProRes RAW media using the UME plug-in. However, exporting ProRes RAW is not yet supported.
