EDITBLOG on PVC by Scott Simmons
If you’re at all curious about Avid Media Composer then this class can help
I’m very excited for my trip to the National Association of Broadcasters convention this year as I’ll be leading a couple of the In Depth sessions of the Post|Production world conference. The first, on Tuesday morning from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm and part of the Avid Editing Workshop is, Avid Media Composer for Final Cut Pro Editors. The second, Wednesday at 10:00 am, is Music Video Workflow. You must register to attend the educational part of the NAB show (unfortunately it’s not free) at the Post|Production World conference.
This particular post will discuss the first class: Avid Media Composer for Final Cut Pro Editors.
Avid Media Composer for Final Cut Pro Editors isn’t meant to be an epic battle royalé between the two applications where we compare and contrast item by item, or feature by feature. Instead it’s meant to take a look at Avid Media Composer through the eyes of an editor who either spent their whole editing career on Final Cut Pro or an editor who has an idea of what Avid is all about but still spends most of their time cutting on FCP.
The class description is this:
This course will look at using Avid Media Composer from the perspective of the editor who uses Final Cut Pro on a regular basis. We will take a project from initial ingest of footage through to the final output and finishing. This course can be for the experienced Final Cut Pro editor who wants to move to Avid or those that might be curious about other editing options outside of what Apple has to offer.
Why offer such a class?
It’s worth asking the question of why even have an Avid Media Composer for Final Cut Pro Editors class at all? First and foremost, Avid offers something that most all of the other major NLE producers do not: a free, full-featured demo. To me this is solid reasoning behind offering any type of beginner / here’s what the competition has to offer type of class. read more...
