The Media Composer Editing Essentails (MC101) course is the first step in achieving confidence, creativity, and efficiency with Avid Media Composer, the non-linear film/video editing application used in most movie and television productions. Together with the second course in the series, Media Composer Effects Essentials, this course provides the foundational training required to achieve the credential of Avid Certified User | Media Composer.

Media Composer Editing Essentials will get you editing right away with a built-in Quick Start guide covering the essential tools you need to start a basic project, assemble the story, and output to web — perfect for producers, journalists and corporate videographers. For those headed toward a career in post production, the second half of the course builds on the Quick Start to offer complete, foundational training in the craft of professional editing for news and documentary, commercial spots, and scripted narrative films.

Learn by doing with real-world projects. Starting with the basics of 3-point editing and how to construct a scene, then moving on to reworking a scene and trimming dialogue for maximum emotional impact. Add to that the tools and techniques to mix music and sound effects, create titles and transitions, and deliver the program to specification. You will also learn critical skills needed to work as an assistant editor, including how to sync picture and sound from different sources, organize a project, manage media and metadata, and more.
