So where does Avid Media Composer fit in?
With multiple camera views and/or videos from different sources, aligning those videos into a multi-track timeline can be the most thorough and powerful way to view and interrogate your material, both from an investigative standpoint as well as from a demonstrative point of view.
So with dTective/Media Composer, you have the full set of Media Composer features, a video editing timeline and the dTective plugins for redaction, frame averaging, and presentation.
