Love it or hate it, Avid Media Composer is the dominant editing platform for film and television. It’s used in edit suites from New Zealand, to the UK, to Germany and the USA (I’ve worked in 3 of those, guess which!).
Yet despite it being so widely used there are a number of REALLY amazing features in this incredibly expansive software platform that many users don’t know about. So here in this video I’ll highlight six of my favourites and demonstrate how to use them.
Don’t forget to like / subscribe / and comment with any video suggestions you’d like me to cover in film / TV editorial!
