Avid DVD update for Avid Xpress Studio

Avid Technology recently released an upgrade to the Avid Xpress Studio product line. Updates to this product include:

- Completely revised version of Avid DVD by Sonic – new interface, new easier-to-use templates and more.
- Resolved the conflict between Digidesign 002 and Avid Mojo in Pro Tools LE
- Support for QuickTime 7.0.3
- Compatibility updates for other applications to sync with Avid Xpress Pro v5.2.

In our opinion, the most important update to this package, is the new Avid DVD software. It has a new interface that is much easier to use than the previous version. Within minutes, I had no problem figuring out the basics and burning a high quality DVD.

An Mpg2 file not required to be compatible with Avid DVD 5.21. This version allowed me to import quicktime files with using various codecs, or wmv files with ease. Unfortunately, for Avid users, you still must export your QuickTime movies using upper-field first, otherwise the video will appear to jitter during scenes with fast motion.

Another note: it was disappointing to find out that the downloadable update to this product did not include Avid DVD 5.21. You must purchase the Avid Xpress Studio 5.21 disk separately from Avid's online store. Fortunately it is only $50, and the disk will include all the other Avid Xpress Studio Updates which include:

Avid Xpress 5.21 HD, Protools LE, Avid 3D, and Avid FX. The $50.00 is worth having a separate install disk with all the updates.
