Avid has announced that is to release Avid Media Composer First, a stripped down free version of its video editing system. 


Media Composer First will have a new interface with four video tracks, eight audio tracks, and various built-in visual effects, transitions, colour correction presets and titling templates. 


“It can be really difficult for up-and-coming filmmakers, television program creators and digital media producers to get access to the right tools to tell their stories in a compelling way. Consumer applications are fun to play with but will only take you so far,” said Dana Ruzicka, chief product officer, Avid. “With Media Composer | First, we’re giving any aspiring creative pros access to the same tools used by top industry professionals—for free! And with access to the Avid Artist Community, First users can connect with other aspiring creatives and media professionals, collaborate and get their work out there for others to see.”


It will be available in June 2017 as a free software download through the Avid website.
