Media Composer 101 is an introductory course designed to get a new user up-and-running on the software. In this course, students develop an understanding of the video editing process and the basic skills to edit a video project from start to finish. 

This includes understanding the relationship between media and project files, media storage location, the abilities to create the project file; bring in the source video and audio files; edit the sequence, add titles, music, and basic effects, and then export the finished sequence.
  • Identify and understand the function of the primary Media Composer tools and windows
  • Create/open a project using standard SD and HD formats
  • Add basic effects and transition effects to the sequence
  • Use automatic color correction to improve the appearance of video clips
  • Adjust basic settings relating the media creation and user preferences
  • Export the finished sequence as a high-quality video file, or for uploading to the web

Question from Justin E.
What is the difference between Avid Media Composer Fundamentals I and Avid Media Composer For Producers? I am a story producer but courses for Avid Media Composer Fundamentals I fits my schedule better. Would the Fundamentals 1 course still cover everything offered in the Producer course?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Justin! The Fundamentals I class is an official Avid curriculum and it's a certification course, which means there's an optional certification exam available after the course. It also comes with a book. The Producers class is not a certification class, does not come with a book, and the other main difference is that the Fundamentals class covers things like effects, which the Producers class does not.
Question from Angelica B.
Will I receive the actual Avid Media certification after completing both Avid Media Composer Fundamentals I and Media Composer Fundamentals II (v8.6)?
Answer from Angelica B. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
There are optional certification exams for each class. Passing both exams makes a student an Avid Certified User. We offer exam sessions 1-2 a month, usually on weekday mornings at 10am or in the afternoon at 3pm. Exam sessions that fit the student’s schedule can be arranged if the scheduled session doesn’t work. Each exam is 50 multiple choice questions. Passing is 80% (40 correct). Exams are held at our facility in Burbank, CA.
