Publisher Comments:

Top film editors know Avid Media Composer and Symphony inside and out, giving them the confidence to pursue Hollywood-style productions and earn top wages.

COLOR GRADING WITH MEDIA COMPOSER AND SYMPHONY 6 is here to help you on your way toward expertise in color grading with these two industry-standard video- and film-editing suites.
