What are the video quality buttons in my Media Composer timeline Media Composer?


Playing Back at Different Video Qualities

quality buttons


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.
