This two-day course is for video editors who understand the basics of the editing tools in Media Composer and are ready to move ahead and learn the fundamentals of creating effects within Avid Media Composer 8, the non-linear film/video editing application used in most movie and television productions. This course provides a solid foundation in Media Composer audio and video effects capabilities and, in conjunction with MC101 Editing Essentials course, will prepare you for Avid’s User Level certification in Media Composer 8. You will be taken through the basic effects-building interface; then, using a real-world, hands-on approach, you’ll learn fundamental audio adjustments and effects, multilayered video compositing, tracking, stabilization, various retiming methods, and basic color-grading techniques. This course is a crucial step in mastering Avid Media Composer, the standard editing system used by professionals in the film and television industries.

Course cost includes a copy of the course textbook Media Composer 8: Part 2:Effects Essentials by Greg Staten. We recommend that if you don't have access to the software to practise, you can download a free trial version from the Avid Website.
