This one-day course is designed for intermediate to advanced Final Cut Pro editors wanting to broaden their skillset to include Avid Media Composer. In this intense ‘bridging course’ editors who are already familiar with Final Cut Pro can quickly learn Media Composer 7 and thereby expand their knowledge base and flexibility. The topics will cover most of the operations an editor will have to perform in any given day and will include:

Creating projects
Working with bins
General editing
Audio mixing
Importing and exporting
Basic colour correction​​

It is assumed the participant has at least one year's experience using Final Cut Pro. There will be some general documentation handed out on the day but it is recommended you come prepared with a notebook and pen to take your own notes.

Great! Lots covered in one day.
