With the 2012 NAB show a thing of the past that means the Post|Production world conference is a thing of the past too. One of the classes I taught this year was Essentials of Avid Media Composer Editing for Migrating Editors . It was a great class and a full house of people moving or thinking about moving to Media Composer. I promised the class I would post a list of links and resources they might find useful when moving to Avid. Here’s that list.
Below are a number of training related resources
