Media100

Media100 may be a bit long in the tooth but it's far from no-frills.  You can work in multiple layers of audio & video in up to 4K resolutions.  Media100 has a multi-cam feature.  Advanced titling, transitions, fx, compositing, motion stabilizers/tracking, colour correction, filters, retiming, etc are all part of the included and integrated BorisRED.  RED lends a lot of power to Media100 with many Boris BCC filter sets.  Media100 timelines can also be sent over to AfterFX.

Hi Chris,

Can you recommend any Portable Pro Video Editors?

Reason ask is my current PC does Not meet all necessary sys req.

Do have access to more powerful PCs that meet all req but has to be port apps.

Thanks

Ken
