ProRes RAW is gaining more and more NLE support and now comes to Avid Media Composer in the latest v2020.10 update. 

Some may say that the latest Media Composer v2020.10 update is a bit light on new features, but it is a big deal to those editors working or planning to work with ProRes RAW in the near future.

(Finally) ProRes RAW Comes to Avid Media Composer!

In addition to adding support for ProRes RAW, Media Composer v2010.10 also supports the latest MacOS Catalina or macOS v10.15.7.

A few months back, Avid released Media Composer v2020.4 update, which was pretty big and it included 64bit support for the latest MacPro.

Avid Media Composer v2010.10 Detals:

  • Support for MacOS v10.15.7 (latest macOS Catalina)
  • ProRes RAW support – linking and playback of ProRes RAW media using the UME plug-in.

A couple of important notes regarding ProRes RAW support in the latest update.

  • For macOS v10.14 and earlier, editors need to make sure the “Pro Video Formats” package is installed. Otherwise, you can download them here.
  • Windows 10 64-bit systems must have the Apple SDK installed – or alternatively, you can download the SDK here.

And in the meantime you can check out what’s new in the current 2020.9 update below.
