Whether you're a Hollywood pro or a film student/enthusiast just starting out, you will likely know about AVID's famed Media Composer software. If you want to learn it, or learn it better, watch this course by our very own three-time North American ProMax award-winning editor and expert trainer Kevin McAuliffe!
In this starter course, Kevin guides you through everything from the basic setup, concepts and terminology you will need to get up and running fast. Once he shows you around the interface, the project window and some of the most important settings and keyboard shortcuts, he immediately delves into the vitally important areas of how to acquire, link to, transcode and organize your footage.
Then, after an overview of some basic editing techniques, you progress deeper into more advanced areas such as titling and trimming and even have a chance to look at audio mixing and color correction. As the course draws to a close, you learn how to export your finished work out of Media Composer and by the end of it all, you will get a complete sense of the overall workflow as well as a good, solid foundation on which to begin building your professional editing skills.
