Collaborate on video projects

If you’re working independently, you can easily share your audio mixes with Media Composer editors by exporting tracks or an entire session as an AAF file. Pro Tools also supports XAVC Long GOP files and 1080p50 project types, enabling you to work your audio editing and mixing magic on projects that use these formats.
