Media Composer 8.5 adds HDR support
Avid launched a brand new update to Media Composer (version 8.5), packed with new features that will expand your editing workflow. The 8.5 update includes color spaces for High Dynamic Range (HDR), and Dolby Vision, Sony S-Log3, BBC/NHK, and ACES profiles. If you are working in an HD project, Avid recommends using DNxHD444 and HQX because of their 10-bit depth, for higher than HD, use DNxHR444 and DNxHQX which are 12-bit. More on new features here. Media Composer 8.5 is now available for all customers who have a Subscription, Floating or Perpetual License with an active Upgrade and Support plan. [source]
