Get Started Fast with Avid for Final Cut Pro Editors—Episode 4

By in Get Started Fast with Media Composer, Video Editing

In our fourth Get Started Fast with Avid for Final Cut Pro tutorial, I tackle effects. Learn how to transfer your knowledge of FCP effects and key frames to get the look, sound, and quality you want using a host of built-in effects and audio tools in Media Composer. In particular, learn how the 3D Warp effect can be your go-to tool for day-to-day work. See how powerful it is, as well as how to easily keyframe only the parameters you need, and how to adjust spline curves to give your animations a more realistic look—fast. Watch this lesson to see a demonstration of how efficient effects work in Media Composer can be compared to FCP.
