Beginning a new video project requires a good amount of an editor’s time spent in pre-production mode. In these Avid Learning Partner tutorial-videos, Avid Certified Media Composer 6 trainer Jeff Greenberg shows you how to get your media properly organized and ingested to make your Media Composer experience fast and efficient…
It all starts with media, which comes in many shapes, sizes and in all different formats. How you deal with it and how you get it into Media Composer 6 is what this tutorial is all about! So let’s get started: Jeff begins this tutorial with an overview section that explains all the basic concepts and tools at your disposal. From there you’ll learn how to set up your project using Locations and Types.

Next up are MC6‘s Bins. You’ll learn all about Bin management, viewing techniques and some very handy advanced Bin features to sort and sift through your clips. Jeff then explains how to import everything from simple JPEGs, audio, video and even Photoshop layers. After this section he takes you deeper into AMA (Avid Media Access) and explains how it works with File and Volume linking.

Tape? Yes, if you’ve got to pull in some videotaped footage, Jeff explains how it’s done. He covers everything from setting up a deck to doing batch captures.
