Avid has released
Avid Free DV, a Mac OS X compatible product that lets you “test drive” Avid’s editing interface that its commercial video editing software uses.
Targeted to students, DV camera owners, video enthusiasts and others exploring video editing, Avid Free DV is feature-streamlined, standalone software that includes basic video and audio editing capabilities and up to two streams of real-time effects. Avid hopes that you’ll find the free product so intriguing that you’ll move up to their commercial applications, which include Avid Xpress DV and Avid Xpress Pro.
Mac system requirements are Mac OS X 10.2.4 or later, a 667MHz or faster G4 (or G5) and 256MB of RAM. Avid Free DV is available now for downloading.
