Avid MC7 and 25 New Features

Scott Simons writing for Pro Video Coalition has corralled 25 tweets from Wim Van den Broeck showcasing 25 new features in Media Composer 7.

As I was looking through this list of new Avid Media Composer features it really makes clear that MC7 is mostly about under-the-hood changes. Many of those to AMA. This might be one of those releases that seem small on features but it’ll probably end up being an important one as it’ll make life for editors move a bit more smoothly.

Two of the features that caught my eye are the background monitoring now available from within MC 7 and outside of MC 7 via a web browser. I always like the ability to monitor exports, especially in time sensitive situations.
