Get Started Fast with Media Composer for Adobe Editors — Part 1

By in Get Started Fast with Media Composer, Video Editing

Welcome to our newest tutorial series “Get Started Fast with Media Composer for Adobe Editors“.  The goal of this series is to show you fundamental differences between your Adobe editing application, and Avid Media Composer, so you can get up to speed as quickly as possible.

In our first lesson, we’re talking specifically about the project window, and how setting up your project in Media Composer is the most important part of the your editing process, because you’re not setting up how to edit, but you are setting up what the end product is going to conform to.  We also discuss user settings, and how they can be created in the project creation window as well.
