Media Composer Professional Editing I will give you the skills and in-depth, under-the-hood knowledge you need to distinguish yourself as a true editing professional and go for the high-profile jobs you want.

With the step-by-step guidance in this course, you’ll learn the skills you need to work on big-budget productions: media management (become the media management guru others look to for expert advice), advanced picture editing (learn precision cutting techniques and how to master Script Integration for long-form projects), and advanced sound editing (learn to impress your producer by creating great audio mixes). The student guide includes media and projects that you can work with at your own pace after the class is over. This course, along with its counterpart Media Composer Professional Effects and Compositing, will prepare you for Media Composer 6 Professional certification at an Avid Learning Partner.
