    Bring back the weightlifter icon!

    This used to be my favorite icon but unfortunatley it's gone. Hopefully it will get resurrected in the future.

    Maybe in a Media Composer retro special edition Wink

    it's kinda like an inside joke for people who've been on avid for a while. One day it will be on Avid Jeopardy....

    I wanted to get a bunch of shirts with this logo printed and pass them out at NAB when they changed the Icon.

     

    Maybe it would also encourage more exercise!

    good one!
    If they still had the icon, to could have made some marketing out of it:

    "Media Composer 6, 64bit .... Ready for some Heavy Weightlifting?"

    They should actually turn the weightlifter into their new company logo instead of that filmstripe in a circle.

    If they reinstate the weightlifter, the first time the editor hits the lift command, a little voice should say (in an Austrian accent), "I'm baack!"

    Re: Bring back the weightlifter icon!

    Back in 2009,There was an app created by a guy ( not from avid)

    called "WeightLifter " for changing the lift and cut icon...

    but seems till version 4,0 this app is not working anymore...

    I'm too sad ,[:'(][:'(]
