Avid released Media Composer 5.5.2 yesterday and there are a number of new additions/fixes/supported configurations worth taking note of. Briefly they are
- Phrase Find now bundled into the main Media Composer installer
- Phrase Find demo included in Media Composer demo version (separate license purchase still required though)
- Windows 7 SP1 now supported
- Avid QT Codec version 2.3.4 bundled in (fixes issues with QT refs & Westmeer Macs)
Avid are also insistent on creating new user settings even if upgrading from 5.5.1. This is due to Tool window redraw issues. There are also a number of fixes for the Apple platform relating to the dreaded Bus Thread Main Thread. Snag the full release notes below.
