Avid Agility and Media Composer 5.5

Today, I’m excited to announce the release of the second edition of my book, Avid Agility, now updated to cover the exciting new features in Media Composer 5.5. Like the first edition, it represents most of what I know about Media Composer; it’s profusely illustrated, well organized, and beautifully printed in color. You’ll find details and sample pdfs here.

The reviews have been terrific:

  • Jonathan Moser, Post Magazine:
    “Like having a seasoned pro sitting next to you, revealing his trade secrets. Avid Agility will make you a better editor, guaranteed!”
  • Ray Zone, Editors Guild Magazine:
    “May well be the ultimate book on customizing Avid’s unique capabilities for individual creative editing.”
  • Edgar Burcksen, CinemaEditor Magazine:
    “Will guide you to the next exciting level in the art of editing.
  • Norman Hollyn (USC):
    “An amazing work — for both new and old Media Composer users.”
  • Frank Capria (Avid):
    “An easy read, logically laid out, and useful to novice and experienced editor alike. I highly recommend this book.”
  • Steve Hullfish:
    “A very readable, incredibly illustrated book. Consistently delivers magical little tricks that make you say, ‘I wish I’d known that yesterday!’”
  • Lawrence Jordan:
    “The quickest path to becoming a Media Composer Jedi Master. Clear, comprehensively-illustrated and easy-to-understand.”

Avid Agility, Second Edition is available from the publisher, CreateSpace and from Amazon. As a way of saying thanks to my loyal readers here, I’m temporarily offering a 20% discount at CreateSpace. Be sure to enter this discount code: 27DDGFWY. Economy shipping is inexpensive and will get you the book in a week or so.

I hope you like the new edition, and I’m eager to hear your feedback. Add your comments to this post or write me directly at steve@splicenow.com
