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

  • Exporting Quicktimes
  • Exporting AAF/OMF Files
  • Outputting to Tape
  • Prep for Online
