50+ Tutorials on Basic MC tips

Douglas is a great guy and one of our customers. He was a long time Liquid user who migrated to Media Composer. He has put together over 60 fantastic tutorials for all to share! Thank you Douglas, Avid editors new and old appreciate all the effort!!
Not so exciting as it sounds.
Instead of updating the list of tutorials hidden far down a "Migrating from Liquid" thread I decided to start a new thread with the updated list.

Although the first 20 or so links take you to tips which are more directed towards migrants from Liquid, the following tips are of a more general character and can be useful for newcomers migrating from any platform.

As MC has so many ways of producing the same result, there may even be some tips that can make the seasoned MC users say, "Aha!"
