What is Symphony 6?
Symphony 6 video editing software has the same features, tools, and workflows as Media Composer—plus advanced color correction, Boris Continuum Complete, and Universal Mastering tools. Available as a software-only solution or as part of two hardware bundles, Symphony provides you with a full suite of editorial and advanced tools to boost your capabilities.
Full 64-bit power
Fast gets even faster with native 64-bit operation, so even when you layer together the most complex effects, things will still feel snappy. Experience smoother playback, faster rendering performance, and better handling with large bins—and say goodbye to the old memory limitations of the 32-bit operating systems.
Work with the hardware you have
Symphony is now fully open thanks to Avid Open I/O, so you can work with your choice of powerful and reliable Avid audio and video interfaces or third-party video I/O cards, including those from AJA, Blackmagic Design, Bluefish444, Matrox, and MOTU. Manufacturers can simply create plug-ins using Avid Open I/O to have their hardware work with Symphony — meaning they'll have even more choices to come.
Gain efficiency with the sleek new user interface
Modern, smart, and sexy. Symphony has a whole new look, but its familiar editing workflow stays the same. Get to what you need faster through the tabbed interface (no more window clutter!). You can also customize bin layouts and Workspaces, enabling you to focus only on the assets and tools you need for the project at hand.
Get stock footage and more in the Avid Marketplace
Conveniently browse for stock footage, plug-ins, hardware, and more, right from within Symphony—no shoes, shirt, or pants required. Search for, preview, and purchase stock footage from T3 Media in context with your project. Shop for plug-ins, software options, and compatible hardware to extend your capabilities. You'll even find training material and other media that'll help perfect your skills.
Edit stereoscopic 3D material as quickly and easily as you do with standard 2D footage, with a full set of new features and workflows. Capture, edit, and manage the complete 3D end-to-end workflow. Mix and match 2D and stereoscopic 3D clips on the same track. Plus, work with full frame and frame-compatible sources, full-fledged editing tools, video effects, and more.
Go hands-on with Artist Color
Accelerate your color correcting and grading with Artist Color. With its highly responsive feel, you can keep your eyes on the picture instead of the interface while you make adjustments. And since you can tweak multiple parameters at once, you dramatically gain more speed and efficiency to complete time-consuming tasks quickly.
Mix in surround sound
You want your audio to sound as spectacular as your video looks. Now you can record, edit, and mix studio- quality audio in up to 7.1 surround—right in Symphony. Not only that, you can share mixes with Pro Tools editors (using AAF), and even record and monitor audio using a host of Avid audio interfaces.
