Our effort to expand our list of video titles brings two new courses and two new authors to lynda.com: Avid Media Composer 5 Getting Started with Steve Holyhead and Avid Media Composer 5 Essential Training with Ashley Kennedy. Avid is one of the pioneering video editing suites, and the software is used extensively in feature films, television, and many other venues. The brand new Media Composer 5 offers a completely reengineered platform that has been getting a very positive response. For those who want to get their feet wet in the world of Avid editing, we’re proud to present two courses.
In Avid Media Composer 5 Getting Started, author Steve Holyhead explores the tools and techniques in Media Composer for producing great looking video, as well as the basics of high definition media formats. This course walks through the video production workflow from input to editing to output, covers key information such as trim concepts and frame rates, and introduces techniques such as color correction, footage stabilization, and real-time audio effects.
In Avid Media Composer 5 Essential Training, author Ashley Kennedy demonstrates basic and intermediate editing techniques in Media Composer, inclusing how to build sequences, mix audio, color correct footage, apply effects, and troubleshoot common post-production issues in Media Composer.
We hope these courses are the start of an ongoing series of titles that cover Avid tools and workflows. Let us know what you think.
