New Avid software released with some cool new features

You can now download and try the new Avid Media Composer 5.5!

The main product page has the headline of the new features, but there is a complete document that goes through all of what’s new.  A few of my favorite nuggets:

  • The AMA Plug-Ins are unbundled from the Avid editor installers, with the exception of the AMA QuickTime plug-in. This allows AMA plug-in updates to be released when needed without relying on an Avid editing release.
  • The current Find feature has been updated in a new window called Text Find. Text Find allows you to enter text and search bins, Scripts and the Timeline.
  • PhraseFind allows you to search for audio dialogue throughout your bins within a single project. The PhraseFind feature is purchased separately.
  • You can install your Avid editing application with the new versions of Pro Tools hardware and peripherals, including the Native and HD cards.
