MC 101/110

A Comprehensive Study of Editing and Effects with Avid Media Composer 6 - $1,995


This five-day intensive course combines our MC 101 (Part 1) Editing Essentials with Avid Media Composer 7 workshop and our MC 110 (Part 2)  Effects Essentials with Media Composer 7 workshop.  This course leads you through the interface and basic editing techniques before moving on to trimming, fine-tuning the edit, adjusting audio, handling multicamera editing, adding transitions, adding titles, and outputting your finished project. The training is hands-on and features project-based lessons in which you work on real-world projects ranging from extreme sports and dazzling documentary footage to an episode of the television show Hell's Kitchen. This  course is the first step in mastering Avid Media Composer 6, the standard editing system used by professionals in the film and television industries.

This course also provides a solid foundation in Media Composer audio and video effects capabilities and will prepare you for Avid’s User Level certification in Media Composer 7. You will be taken through the basic effects-building interface; then, using a real-world, hands-on approach, you’ll learn fundamental audio adjustments and effects, multilayered video compositing, tracking, stabilization, various retiming methods, and basic color-grading techniques. This course is a crucial step in mastering Avid Media Composer, the standard editing system used by professionals in the film and television industries.

Prerequisite: No familiarity with the system is necessary. Completion of a Macintosh introductory course or equivalent experience is required. A background in editing, production, or post-production is strongly recommended.

This is our bundle class of our MC 101 (weekend or three-day workshop) and our MC 110 (weekend or two-day workshop) combined.

Weekly intensives are from 10am-6pm.
