This week's collection of Avid Editing Tips and Tricks is the seventh part of the series. This week's collection includes some tips for features recently added to the Avid Media Composer. As always, if you have any comments or suggestions, you can reach me through the comments of this blog, through Google+, LinkedIn or Twitter using the @mBlazeVideo handle.

As always, keep in mind that I work on an Avid Media Composer on the Mac. If you are using Windows, keep in mind that the COMMAND key on the Mac does what the CTRL key does on Windows and the OPTION key on Mac is the same as the ALT key on Windows.

Audio Keyframes - In the new Avid Media Composer, there are a number of new capabilities added to audio keyframes (audio rubber banding). One new capability is the ability to copy and paste keyframes. Now ranges of audio keyframes can be copied and then pasted to another point in the timeline. This range can be selected by lassoing (dragging the mouse to select) the keyframes or SHIFT selecting multiple keyframes. As always, keyframes can be moved up and down by selecting and dragging them, keyframes can be moved in time by selecting them and OPTION-DRAGGING the keyframes left or right.

On the other hand, if you OPTION-DRAG a movie file to the bin, the system creates an AMA linked clip. read more...
