Avid Media Composer
Reviewed by Anonymous on 3/10/2016
The class is a good intro to Avid, covers the basics, and touches on different stages of production, from importing and transcoding to color correction, alpha keying, titles, and exporting. The class size is small, so you're able to get hands on help. But ultimately Avid can't be completely learned in 4 weeks, so if you really want to finish learning Avid, you're going to need to follow up with study on your own.
