Avid Agility — 3rd Edition — Available Now

Today, I’m excited to announce the release of the third edition of my book, Avid Agility. This version is bigger than ever, with almost 50 pages of new material, lots of important new tips and a brand new chapter covering Script Integration and ScriptSync. It now focuses on Media Composer 6, and all illustrations reflect Avid’s new design.

If you’re looking for ways to make the most out of MC6, you need this book. The reviews for the second edition were stellar. Newbies have raved about how it clearly and succinctly explains difficult concepts, and long-time Avid editors have discovered crucial shortcuts that they were unaware of. Many people have told me that it has changed the way they edit. The second edition is in use all over the world by prominent editors and at major film schools.

Here’s a sample of recent reviews (details here).

  • Post Magazine: “Like having a seasoned pro sitting next to you, revealing his trade secrets. Avid Agility will make you a better editor, guaranteed.”
  • Editors Guild Magazine: “Very much a definitive book about the Media Composer.”
  • Lawrence Jordan: “The quickest path to becoming a Media Composer Jedi Master.”
  • Norman Hollyn (USC): “An amazing work — for both new and old Media Composer users.”

You can buy Avid Agility today from CreateSpace. It will be available from Amazon in a few days, along with a new Kindle version. I encourage you to take a look at it. No matter how much you know about Media Composer, I’ll wager that it will help you work faster and with more facility.

To make it easy for early adopters to take the plunge I’m offering a 20% discount through CreateSpace. Just enter this code when you check out: HGDQXDTN. Standard shipping is inexpensive and will get you the book in about a week.

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
