I found a link via Twitter the other day that is worth sharing. It’s to a number of downloadable PDF files that were produced (and licensed under Creative Commons) by director/editor Zak Ray of Worldwide Studios. There’s quite the list and many of them might come in handy for the editors of the world.
Here’s the list of what’s available:
- Common Digital Video Formats
- Common Digital Audio Formats
- Common Digital Graphics Formats
- Common Digital Interfaces
- Avid Media Composer 5 Complete Shortcut Guide
- Final Cut Pro 7 Complete Shortcut Guide
- Motion 4 Complete Shortcut Guide
- Soundtrack Pro 3 Complete Shortcut Guide
- Color 1.5 Complete Shortcut Guide
- Compressor 3.5Complete Shortcut Guide
- DVD Studio Pro 4 Complete Shortcut Guide
The only thing missing from that list is all the Adobe Creative Suite products! The guides are quite extensive and well put together. They took someone quite a while to complete. Click over to the Worldwide Studios page to get further links to the PDF downloads. FYI the files are hosted at a file hosting site so there’s a lot of advertising and clicks to click through to get to the download but if you’re in need of these types of guides then it’s a small price to pay 😉
And just because we can here’s links to Adobe’s keyboard shortcut pages but they aren’t nice, clean printable guides so if anyone has a link to those please post it in the comments below.
