Avid has revealed its plans to release a free version of its popular Media Composer video editing software. Dubbed “Media Composer | First,” it will be scaled down in features but will still offer much of the experience for which Media Composer is popular.
Avid has not divulged the complete details on Media Composer | First; however, it will launch later this year. The available info from Avid highlights an in-app Marketplace for purchasing effects and stock footage. Additionally, Avid also highlights cloud connectivity, stating that all projects are stored in the cloud with media stored locally.
As Avid’s FAQ reinforces several times, Media Composer | First is targeted specifically at beginners. Avid makes effort to encourage anyone looking to become a serious editor to look at the full version Media Composer instead.
Avid Media Composer | First will officially launch sometime later in 2015.
Late last year, Blackmagic Design unveiled Fusion 7 for Windows and made it free with a Studio version available for $995 with additional features. That was a big deal because it was previously a $5,000 application for high-end VFX work on Hollywood films like Maleficent, Edge of Tomorrow, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, The Amazing Spider-man 2 and The Hunger Games, as well as hit TV shows like Battlestar Galactica and Orphan Black.
Of course, we wondered at the time when Mac OS X support would be available. Well, it’s not quite on the market for Mac yet, but Blackmagic is already showing off support for OS X and will have more details available at NAB 2015 in just over a week.
