Avid claims the new Media Composer is both, revolutionary and evolutionary. The goal here is to satisfy longstanding users while attract new users at the same time. Not an easy task, admittedly, but from what you can see in the new version, it really looks pretty promising. Time will tell if performance, compatibility, and ease of use meet that expectation. Especially when it comes to full-length feature films. Ad My very own problem with Avid was and still is the steep learning curve. You really have to devote a serious amount of time to learn the thing, master the shortcuts, get your head around the numerous oddities Media Composer has to offer. My hope —and it seems that Avid is in the same boat here— is that Media Composer will take the pain out of that learning process.
