    Good news! Avid is pleased to announce the release of Media Composer 2021.12.5 today. November 24th, 2022, at noon. This is available on the Download Center only.  

    Status of Support Plan: The ability to launch this Media Composer 2021.12.5 software is dependent on the status of a customer’s Upgrade and Support Plan on the date this software version is released. Media Composer 2021.12.5 is released on Thursday November 24th, 2022 at 12pm EDT.

    What’s Fixed in 2021.12.5: The following has been fixed.

    Dynamic Relink has been improved with this release and includes various fixes to address issues with Matte Keys and alpha channels.
