What you'll learn in this media composer training:

This five-day course combines our MC 101: Media Composer Fundamentals I and our MC 110: Media Composer Fundamentals II to provide the foundation for the Media Composer User Certification Exam.

You will first learn about the interface and basic editing techniques before moving on to trimming, fine-tuning the edit, adjusting audio, handling multi-camera editing, adding transitions, adding titles, and outputting your finished project. The training is hands-on and features project-based lessons in which you work on real-world projects ranging from extreme sports to dazzling documentary footage.

Once you know the basics of the editing tools, you are ready to learn the fundamentals of creating effects within Avid Media Composer. You will be taken through the basic effects-building interface; then you'll learn fundamental audio adjustments and effects, multilayered video compositing, tracking, stabilization, various retiming methods, and basic color-grading techniques.

Question from anonymous
Is this a good course if you want to learn things for assistant editing? Or are there totally different things that you would learn in the Avid AE course?
Answer from Josh A. Verified Educator
Hi there, This is part of what would be good to learn things for Assistant Editing. We offer an AE for Avid workshop and part of the prerequisite is the MC 101 portion of this class. So yes it is, but you should take that class as well. The MC 110 portion would help you as well, but it isn't quite as relevant in this particular role.
