any version of Avid Media Composer or Symphony."

"An investment that will pay for itself many times over
in decreased frustration and increased time for creativity."
435 pages packed with Avid Media Composer editing essentials and far beyond, including tips, tricks, and explanations not found in other publications. Its "cookbook" (step-by-step), task-based approach (plus the three appendices) will help users at all experience levels gain a deeper, more thorough understanding of the software so they can spend less time dealing with technical and operational issues and instead focus on being creative.

Just some of what this book offers:
Whether you're just beginning your use of Avid Media Composer or you've been using it for some time, I believe this book contains a great deal of useful, time-saving, and frustration-reducing information for users at all experience levels. Further, I believe that this book fills a particular gap in the Avid Media Composer publications that are currently available.
Because the features and abilities of Avid Media Composer are so broad, encompassing editing, sound design, color correction, and visual effects, I decided to focus this book primarily on the core story-telling needs we have every day: essentially getting footage into the system, editing, and audio mixing.
I first began learning Avid Media Composer in 1994 through trial and error. Nonlinear editing and the Internet were still in their infancy, and there weren't any books on Avid Media Composer, so I did my best to learn by reading the manual. My frustrations came when I'd read about a procedure or tool in the manual but it didn't include a definition of it or context when it would be useful. So, in addition to providing the step-by-step instructions, as Packt Cookbooks promise, I've included many definitions of industry and Media-Composer-specific terms, and explanations of why tools and functions behave as they do, along with situations when they would be helpful. In many ways, this is one of the books I wish I had had all those years ago.
I'd also like to mention that some incredibly knowledgeable and accomplished people have helped me by reviewing this book's content while I was writing it: Michael Phillips, Oliver Peters, and Roger Shufflebottom. These very generous gentlemen are talented professionals who you may find yourself meeting, consulting, or working with in the future. I encourage you to read their biographies, which are included in this book, and you'll see how fortunate I was to have them on the team.
Lastly, I truly hope you find this book to be helpful.
Friends, family and associates:
Thanks to all those with the willingness and patience to teach me throughout my life.
Thanks to all my students over the many years; I learned a lot from you too.
