“Avid Media Composer is rock solid. On Kingsman: The Golden Circle we were editing in many countries with multiple Media Composer workstations and laptops, mostly in our main cutting rooms but also in hotel rooms, at the director’s home, on the mixing stage, during flights, in a forest, on the side of a mountain and even travelling in a cable car. Avid Media Composer’s powerful media management tools meant we could have multiple copies of our complete media and project wherever and whenever we needed it and everything worked reliably and quickly. Avid Media Composer gives me peace of mind. For a film as complex as this, I wouldn’t trust any other editing software.”
