This course is open to 5 active members from the picture editorial classification with basic proficiency in Avid Media Composer.


We’ll be doing “deep dives” into advanced topics to enhance your creativity and efficiency in the edit room. This is not a beginner’s class; basic proficiency with the software is presumed. This is a discussion based seminar; sharing personal techniques and approaches will be highly encouraged, as will sharing any particular queries or problems you’ve encountered.



  1. MultiCamera Editing: working and editing with group clips.

  2. VFX Technique and Design: nesting, multilayer effects, animating keyframes, template creation and intraframe effects, notably the paint effect.

  3. Keying and Compositing: basic chroma, luminance and matte keying, animatte effect, tracking for creative use and image area replacement.

  4. Color Correction Mode Basics: scene enhancements, scene matching, and scene stylization.

  5. Audio Editing: keyframing (“rubber banding”), mixing and EQing.

  6. Retiming and Speed Effects: Using the timewarp effect.
