Get Started Fast with Avid for Final Cut Pro Editors—Episode 2

By in Get Started Fast with Media Composer, Video Editing

In the second of our Get Started Fast with Avid for Final Cut Pro tutorials, I’ll highlight key differences between FCP and Media Composer and demonstrate how your previous workflows in FCP can easily be recreated in Media Composer. Watch this tutorial to see keyboard mapping vs. command palette, FCP editing layout vs. composer window, moving clips around an FCP timeline vs. Avid Smart Tools, trimming, color correction, and exporting. I even answer one of the most asked questions. How do you post to YouTube from the Media Composer timeline? This second lesson is a must see for editors to transfer their FCP essential editing techniques to MC—fast.
