Avid Media Composer AMA
What are the video quality buttons in my Media Composer timeline Media Composer?
Playing Back at Different Video Qualities
The Video Quality Menu button in the Timeline bottom
toolbar allows you to switch display resolutions when real-time effects
are enabled. This allows you to trade off video quality with smooth
playback of real-time effects. If you notice missing frames or choppy
video during real-time playback, switch to a lower quality setting.
The following table shows the available video
qualities for systems with and without Avid Mojo DNA attached or with
Avid Adrenaline DNA attached. The Blue Dot mode refers to the feature on
software-only systems (no Mojo DNA attached) that allows you to toggle
real-time effects on and off.
