    Media Composer 8.10 NOW AVAILABLE - 21 Dec 2017

    Great news —  Media Composer v8.10 has been released today.

    Location at Launch:  Media Composer v8.10 is available from My Avid Master Accounts, Application Manager, and the Avid Download Center (login and password required) today at @ 3:00 PM EDT.  

    Installer:  There is a Media Composer v8.10 Mac and v8.10 Win Installer.    

    Patch - There are no Patch Installers. (Installers on thie page are the full installers.) The patch page is only because some users only go to the editor patch folder to grab the latest build.   

    What’s New in v8.10:  Media Composer v8.10 includes a number of new features, including: 

    • Support for Avid Artist | DNxIV: This release supports the new Avid Artist I/O box, the Artist | DNxIV. 
    • Export OP1a MXF file as Panasonic AVC Long-GOP (H.264): This release of the editing application allows you to export OP1a MXF files as Panasonic AVC Long-GOP (H.264).
    • Enhancements to Audio Mixer Tool: Using the Tab key to scroll in the Audio Mixer tool will continue to scroll through tracks that are not initially visible in the window. Additionally, new Gang context menus have been added to the Track and Group panes to help manage the tracks you are ganging or un-ganging.
    • Timewarp Effect Updates: Timewarp effects played backwards (reverse motion) are now in real time. Also with this release, the Effects Palette now includes a Timewarp Freeze Frame effect template.
    • Syncing Based on Waveform Analysis: The use of waveform analysis to create synchronized clips has been added to the Auto Sync function.
    • 8K Presets: A number of 8K project presets have been added to the Select Project Window, saving users from having to make and save custom projects to work with their 8K media.
    • Logging in to MediaCentral from the Select Project Window: Users can now log into MediaCentral through the Select Project window.
    • Refreshing Locked Bins: Two new bin lock icon colors have been introduced to indicate the status of a locked bin. Users can now see when changes have been made to a locked bin and when the bin has been released for read/write functions.

     See the MC 8.10 readme  ( ) for what is fixed  and some identified limitations in this release.
