New Avid Video Tutorials

Avid has begun to put up well-designed video tutorials for some of the new features in Media Composer. There are only a few so far, but they’re tight, effective and very useful. You can find them on this page, under the “Take A Tour” button. (Older tutorials are here.)

Assistant editors who aren’t familiar with the new timecode plug-in will find an excellent introduction to that powerful feature. You should note that the plug-in is even more powerful now, in version 3.5. It not only lets you burn in any numerical data that can be displayed above a monitor, but you can also add info from any bin column. For example, you can now easily make a tape that displays running timecode (24, 25 or 30 fps), keycode, tape roll and source timecode for every clip, as well as “property of” text — all in real time.

Congratulations to Lesley Glorioso, Michael Phillips and Steve Holyhead and for putting these tutorials together. Keep up the good work, folks.
