Media Composer | NewsCutter Option from Avid is for Avid-qualified student, teacher, or institutional users of Avid Media Composer 8 for Windows who would like to add the functionality of the NRCS Tool, previously found in the now discontinued NewsCutter, to their toolset.
The NRCS Tool opens an iNEWS or ENPS interactive session within Media Composer. With this, editors can view rundowns and scripts and edit video to scripts by dropping selected or pre-selected (based on locaters created in iNEWS) text directly to the timeline. Clips are pre-timed to the reporter's read rate. The NRCS Tool is designed to improve, simplify, and speed up story creation between journalist and editor, and features full functionality with Asian-language scripts. Additionally, it allows you to send mail within iNEWS workgroups.
