Avid’s had a rough go at it lately. After delaying the release of financial information they were recently delisted from NASDAQ and moved to the OTC (Over The Counter) exchange. The company’s very public faltering spans a few years now – so there’s been much speculation in the pro video community about the future of the brand and editing platform.

To top it off, Avid’s Media Composer software has been wrought with bugs over the last few versions. However, the recent announcement of Version 7.0.4 aims to provide some stability. The update addresses 115 bug fixes, which are all detailed here.

Additionally the update adds the following features/functionality (tip from

  • Support for Mac OS 10.9.2 (Mavericks)
  • Media Composer | Cloud Plug-in Update
  • New SGamut3.cine LUTs from Sony
  • High-Definition Color Bar Signal bars have been added
  • A new crash report log
  • Mac Pro Support: Doesn’t require a core audio device to be present upon launch
  • Performance update to Avid Artist Color
