Avid Liquid software is a powerful SD and HD video editor for the PC that offers integrated DVD authoring, surround sound audio processing, and thousands of amazing real-time effects.

Editing. Audio. DVD. Effects. One application
Avid Liquid combines powerful video editing with integrated DVD authoring from the timeline; surround-sound audio processing; and comprehensive visual effects. Editors only have to learn a single interface to create high-quality video productions with sophisticated effects and audio—and quickly output to tape, disc, or streaming media.
Complete HDV workflow
Avid Liquid offers native transfers and frame-accurate editing of 720 and 1080 interlaced and progressive HDV content from a wide variety of popular cameras and decks. It features a powerful real-time effects engine that provides multiple streams of HDV in real time; video monitoring in full-screen on the VGA monitor; and, most important, a smooth workflow for output back to HDV tape.
Avid Liquid supports the Avid Open Timeline: mix content from a variety of sources without having to transcode between formats. Videographers can edit DV, MPEG I-frame, MPEG IBP, HDV and DVCPRO-HD, as well as Windows Media, DIVX and MPEG-4, in the same timeline. With such a broad palette of native codecs, editors can spend more time creatively editing instead of re-rendering from format to format.
Smooth DVD production
Even during the editing process, Editors can use a full-featured, integrated DVD authoring toolset right in the timeline; define the interactivity; create and customize menus and navigation; preview and modify the DVD; add a Dolby Digital 5.1 surround mix; and then intelligently render out to a finished DVD. Using supported video I/O hardware, editors can capture footage directly to a DVD-compliant MPEG IBP codec, saving time by avoiding the transcoding process
Editing for everyone
Avid Liquid software offers a flexible user interface and functions that match any level of editing experience. As users move from other consumer-level or professional-level applications, the transition is smooth and efficient.
