Setup User Profile Settings to Customize the Interface and Operation of Avid Media Composer

By in Tutorial Thursday, Video Editing

In this tutorial I will give you an overview on setting your user profile for Media Composer, which you can also import into other versions of Media Composer. With these user settings you can customize the look and feel and operation of Avid Media Composer to suit the way you like to work in the editing application. My top tip for trouble shooting any issues in Media Composer is to check out these user settings first— they can become corrupt if not exported/imported correctly. So let’s take a quick look at how you set up your settings.
