What you'll learn in this avid training:

Learn what is required of an assistant editor on a film or television production.

Understanding the technical side of the editing process is not only essential but expected when applying for an assistant editing job. Knowing what's expected of you (how to ingest, group, consolidate, move, and output) will help ease the transition to the assistant position.

This class focuses on the tasks that an assistant editor is typically assigned to do. Primarily focusing on television tape and tapeless formats, students will be guided through setting up a bay, getting footage in the Avid, organizing media as an assistant as well as an editor, managing media and drives, getting material out to various broadcast formats, and finally common troubleshooting tasks.
  • Setting up the editing bay.
  • Getting footage in the Avid.
  • Ingesting, grouping, consolidating, moving, and outputting media.
  • Organizing media as an assistant as well as an editor.
  • Managing media and drives.
  • Outputting material in various broadcast formats.
  • Common troubleshooting tasks.
Who Should Attend: 
Aspiring Assistant Editors, Assistant Editors, Editors, Post Production Supervisors, Producers, and anyone else interested in gaining a keen knowledge of assistant editing essentials. 

It is highly recommended that students take the Avide Media Composer clasess, MC101 Editing Essentials & MC110 Effects Essentials - or have equivalent experience - before taking this class.

Reviewed by Adam F. on 5/6/2019
Class was very informative, I feel a lot more comfortable with Avid after. I do wish it was a bit longer as it’s a lot of info to squeeze into 16 hours. But definitely a solid base of info to build from, would recommend.
