We’re taking a little side-step in this lesson, as we were originally going to talk about settings, but after a question was asked in the previous lesson about why you shouldn’t edit with Linked material, I thought we should cover THE MOST IMPORTANT LESSON YOU’LL WATCH IN YOUR JOURNEY TO LEARN MEDIA COMPOSER, and that is Consolidating vs Transcoding, when to use them, and why you need to do things a certain way to get the best and smoothest workflow from Media Composer. Enjoy!
