Go bigger—without barriers

With new 16K project presets, you can now write and play back 16K media in their native project types. Boost your creative capabilities with support for more high frame rates and freedom from stream count limitations. And create hyper-realistic 3D and 360 VR content, as well as dramatic slow-motion sequences, with support for 120 fps video, minimizing blur and motion artifacts.

Send video over IP

Got an NDI (Network Device Interface) device? You can now send audio and video from Media Composer to any NDI-aware device over your local network. It’s ideal for simplifying the review and approval process and minimizes costs by leveraging your existing Ethernet infrastructure.

Forget having to re-export an entire sequence just to make a small edit. You can now quickly replace any portion of a previously exported iFrame, XAVC-I, or OP1a DNxHD or DNxHR video file—similar to splicing into film or overwriting tape, but with a digital file. In addition, you can export XDCAM MXF OP1a files to speed your workflow.

Make changes on the fly

No need to stop and restart video playback to perform certain actions. Media Composer now enables you to access menus, reveal tool tips and highlights, switch applications, zoom in and out of the timeline, add and remove bins, expand and collapse folder views, add and adjust columns, and do much more—all without disrupting playback. With more capabilities coming soon.
