Maximize your creativity and productivity with full-featured tools
With Avid DS, you have all the editing, compositing, painting, conforming, and finishing tools you need to create and deliver projects fast. Speed up editing with Media Composer 5. Eliminate tedious re-assembling with Total Conform to Avid DS. Design high-end graphics, effects, titles, and composites. And with the fully integrated workflow, you’ll spend more time creating than rendering or exporting to other applications.
Accelerate your RED workflow
With direct R3D editing and native conform, waiting is a thing of the past. Edit R3D footage instantly through AMA (Avid Media Access) with Media Composer 5. Keep the vision intact from the offline to finishing; no need to manually re-assemble work, as all timeline information is automatically re-created natively in high resolution, including effects, titles, and color data. And with the supported RED Rocket card, you get real-time playback and accelerated rendering for immediate review/approval and client-assisted sessions.
Get beauty without the bandwidth
Work with all popular HD sources in a real-time collaborative environment, minimizing storage and infrastructure costs. With DNxHD encoding, you can edit and finish sequences in mastering picture quality over multiple generations—in files that consume a fraction of the bandwidth of uncompressed HD.
Achieve the look you want
Create stunning visual effects, animations, graphics, titles, and more with a huge collection of sophisticated paint and compositing tools, 2D and 3D effects, motion tracking, image stabilization, filters, transitions, and fonts. And with support for AVX/AVX 2 and OpenFX (OFX) plug-ins, you can expand your creative palette with software from top visual effects designers, including Boris FX, GenArts, and The Foundry.
Complete Digital Intermediate processing
Create the right look with powerful color grading tools. Clean up footage and add effects, titles, and end credits. Speed up your workflow with real-time 2K, HD 4:4:4 RGB, and HD 4:2:2 YUV playback and integrated DPX, R3D file support. It’s the perfect solution for TV productions; no matter what resolution the show is finished, Avid DS adapts to the required resolution or color space.
Get easy collaboration and integration
Gain better collaboration and save time when you add Avid DS into an existing Avid workflow. Integrate with Interplay, ISIS, and Unity MediaNetwork systems to simultaneously access and share media. Eliminate having to copy or transcode media for different disciplines. And boost productivity with support for industry-standard project formats, including AAF, EDL, and OMF.
Free up resources with Remote Processing
Free up your most valuable tools and talent by rendering sequences in the background using the included Avid DS Remote Processing (RP) System Option. With it, you can transfer all processing to a remote system, enabling the team to spend more time creating and less time waiting, increasing productivity and client satisfaction.
