Publisher Comments:

Avid Media Composer is the standard editing system used by professionals in the film and television industries and with its many capabilities available at a low price, it’s well within the range of serious non-professionals too. With this latest release, Avid proves to be more innovative than ever in a fast-paced world of digital media.

Here to guide readers on the foundations of editing using Avid Media Composer 5 is the only book on the market officially developed and approved by Avid. Each chapter covers a complete lesson in the fundamentals, with step-by-step instructions and accompanying screenshots included so readers can absorb the details and start using the program right away.  After discovering how to use the tools  and understanding the editing workflow, they’ll go on to learn basic editing, timeline editing, and trimming, and then move on to refining audio, adding effects, performing color correction, creating titles, and finally managing projects and delivering the finished work. They’ll also learn about groundbreaking capabilities new to this version of Media Composer such as a drag-and-drop Timeline that allows its users to mix formats, frame rates, and resolutions, new direct editing capabilities for QuickTime, RED, XDCAM, and other tapeless media, and much more. Not only that, with the included DVD, readers can dive right in and follow along with the projects using professional footage from top television shows and films.
