Media Composer 2020 Essential Training: 101 Fundamentals 1

Get up and running with Media Composer, the feature-rich video editing software from Avid. In this project-based course, the first installment in a two-part series, learn how to approach each aspect of the editing process with Media Composer 2020. After familiarizing you with the software's interface, Maxim Jago—an Avid Certified Instructor with 20 years of experience—demonstrates how to create a brand-new project and import media. He then helps you get comfortable with each stage of the editing workflow. Learn how to prepare the timeline for editing, add audio and effects, create titles, manage media, export a video sequence, and much more. Maxim thoroughly explains each technique within the post-production workflow, using real-world examples along the way.

This course is an official companion to Media Composer 101: Media Composer Fundamentals I, the introductory book from Avid. In each chapter, Maxim expands on the lessons and exercises found in the book. Together, these resources can help novice users quickly start leveraging this powerful software.

This course was created by Maxim Jago. We are pleased to host this training in our library.
