Using the Extend Tool in Avid Media Composer

By in Tutorial Thursday, Video Editing

One of the beautiful things about the design of Avid Media Composer is not just non-linear editing, but non-linear workflows. For example, if you need a shot in your timeline to be longer or shorter, you don’t have to use the Trim Tool. You can actually use the Extend Tool for a very similar effect. This tutorial will show you how to use the power of the Extend Tool to your advantage!
