    RIP Xpress Pro

    Well guys I guess it's just a matter of time before we all migrate over to the MC forums together.

    Re: RIP Xpress Pro

    And I just upgraded to MC Soft from XPro a couple of months back. [:'(]

    The good news is, now I can afford another licence for the director to look and review dailies on a laptop.

    Re: RIP Xpress Pro

     So what will this mean for 720p25 support?  Are they going to offer it on MC,  and then I  have to pay for an upgrade to MC so that I can get it? 

    And how come there is no announcement on the website about this pretty major development?

    All I can say is fantastic!  I've been waiting for years to see some life at Avid....  Very exciting.

    Re: RIP Xpress Pro

    The Media Composer interface is identical--you have more effects and more information available to you (Center Duration), plus keyframeable timewarps and more resolutions.  Xpress Pro is literally Media Composer with features removed.  Everything else is almost identical.

    You gotta wonder why their newly vaunted Community didn't get a heads-up though, eh?
