Media Composer 101 Editing Essentials 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. Along with its counterpart, Media Composer 110 Effects Essentials, this course provides the foundation for Media Composer User Certification.

This course will get you editing today 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. Start with the basics of 3-point editing and how to construct a scene, then move 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.
