    Yes [Y] ** Media Composer v7.0 ANNOUNCED **

    Avid has announced the upcoming release of Media Composer v7.0 at NAB!

    New features announced with this product:

    - FrameFlex: the ability to use 2K-5K footage in your HD timeline with keyframing.
    - 1D/3D Look-up Tables (LUTs) and Color Decision Lists (CDLs) supported
    - Dynamic Media Folders with profiles for background Consolidate / Transcode / Copy
    - Managed AMA Media
    - Master Audio Fader
    - Cached Audio Waveforms
    - Direct Audio Clip Gain
    from within the timeline
    - AS-11 support
    - Native support for XVAC (2/4K via AMA)
    - Interplay Sphere for Mac and PC

    Beginning with this release, the Symphony product will now be an OPTION for Media Composer, much like PhraseFind and ScriptSync.  The Symphony option includes Advanced Color Correction and Universal Mastering.

    Additional information on Media Composer v7.0 can be found here.

    The release date for Media Composer v7.0 will be on or around June 27, 2013.

    Customers who purchase Media Composer v6.5 or Symphony v6.5 as of April 7, 2013, will receive v7.0 for free provided they register their product and retrieve their upgrade code by June 30, 2013.

    Pricing will start at US$999 for new systems; slightly more for the Interplay option.  Upgrades from v6.5 will start at US$299 and upgrades from v6.0 and earlier will start at US$399.  More complete pricing information will follow.

    ** We'll update this thread with additional information as it becomes available. **

    Feel free to post your "What's New with v7.0" questions below...

    FWIW In the Q&A from NAB they said they were working (present tense) with Arri on the Arri LUT so it is possible that more will finalise between todays announcement and the release date.

    Re: ** Media Composer v7.0 ANNOUNCED **

    So if I'm already running v6.5.2 (purchased weeks ago), am I eligible for the new v7 free upgrade?

    If you purchased from the Avid store they have a 30 day return policy. I'm in the same boat and will be returning mine tomorrow, though I'm a little underwhelmed with the update. You can also save $200 buying it now.

     

    So, now that symphony is going to be an option rather than its own package, will it still include Boris Continuum Complete? The standalone upgrade to BCC is $600, making upgrades even more expensive if you want to stay up to date.

    The  word is if you buy or upgrade from the time of the NAB announcement (today) until the release date you are eligible for the free upgrade.

    Re: ** Media Composer v7.0 ANNOUNCED **

    The Symph option is 1499 USD.

    If you're on 6.5 or below, you need to upgrade to MC7-Standard or MC7-Interplay-Version, then add the Symph option. Can be done from inside MC7, as far as I understand.
