Avid Media Composer is a film and video editing software application or non-linear editing system (NLE) developed by Avid Technology.Initially released in 1989 on Macintosh II as an offline editing system, the application has since evolved to allow for both offline and online editing, including uncompressed standard definition (SD), high definition (HD), 2K and 4K editing and finishing. Mac Windows Avid NLE P2 Plug-in Ex: Mac; Windows; Extended Panasonic AMA Plug-in for Mac (P2 Plug-in Ex). It supports Avid Media Composer 8.6., etc. How to link P2 clip on Media Composer 8.6 and notice for MC8.4.3 or later Ver. 4.6 (March 2016) AVC-IntraLT and AVC-Intra2KLT import is added as free of charge. MC8.5 is supported, etc. The Avid Marketplace also enables you to extend the Media Composer functions by purchasing stock footage, or plug-ins designed to deal with specific tasks. Your assets and project contents can be managed using reliable tools, and you get to work on the same footage with your entire team.

The nablet Sony RAW X-OCN AMA Plugin allows you to link, play and edit the Sony X-OCN formats as well as F65, F55, F5, and NEX-FS700 Raw MXF files via AMA in Avid editing products. Furthermore it supports the VENICE/CineAltaV X-OCN and RAW formats.

The plug-in provides support of viewing and editing capability with the gamma curve (S-Log3) and color space (S-Gamut3.Cine). The plug-in will translate the image into S-Log2/S-Gamut when the meta data shows that the clip was shot in this monitoring environment. Otherwise, the image will be translated into S-Log3/S-Gamut3.Cine. Please select the LUT in Source Settings window accordingly.

The nablet Sony RAW X-OCN AMA Plugin is the successor of the former Sony PLAV-RW1 plug-in. Note that the nablet plug-in and the Sony plug-in cannot coexist on the same system. The installation of the nablet plug-in guarantees a seamless transition* in your Sony RAW editing workflow after the Sony plug-in had been uninstalled.

*Note that clips in an editing project which have previously been linked by the Sony plug-in will show same plug-in name in the bins clip info although the nablet plug-in now handles them. This is because the Avid application stored the initial information persistently.

Note: The nablet plug-ins and the legacy Sony plug-ins cannot coexist on the same system. Having them both installed will result in unpredictable behaviors of the editing application.
