What you'll learn in this avid training:

This workshop will teach you the skills to get you well on your way to becoming an Avid Assistant Editor.

The job of the assistant editor has never been so tough. Assistants are expected to handle a dizzying array of tasks including how to ingest a myriad range of file formats and codecs, Sync and group multiple cameras, prep for export and on-line and of course, organize, organize, organize. Assistants are often expected to know everything from “why did my computer crash” to “why can’t I AMA link my 5D footage” to “where are my are keys?!”.

We will cover topics from how to create a project to ingesting file based media such as XDCAM EX and Canon 5D footage to prepping for on-line and creating an AAF export.

The class will cover the following topics:
  • Creating Projects and Profiles
  • Organizational Techniques
  • Introduction to Avid User Interface
  • File Base Ingest
  • Import and AMA
  • Capturing Tape
  • Syncing
  • Group and Multigroup
  • Consolidating
  • Transcoding
  • Decomposing
  • Relinking
  • Multicamera Editing
  • Audio Passes
  • Outputs
  • Exporting Quicktimes
  • Exporting AAF/OMF Files
  • Outputting to Tape
  • Prep for Online

Avid Assistant Editor Workshop
Reviewed by Ray V. on 1/3/2020
Janet was a great instructor and thoroughly guided us through the course. Prior to signing up, my only knowledge of Media Composer was through an online class I had completed just days before the MEW workshop. This course helped reinforce the knowledge I had and gave me new insights into editing and Media Composer. The only not-so-positive comment I have to make is that it would've been useful to have a disclaimer up front for questions from the students. In some cases, students used the floor to ask questions specific to projects they were working on outside the workshop which took away from the actual course itself. I found that to be distracting and not a good use of time.
