Have A Great Holiday… And Get Busy!

Have a great holiday… and if you want something to do that’ll give you a head start on your rivals in the cut-throat world of film-making… check this out! Introducing AVID Media Composer|First. This is a biggy… actually, it’s a BIGGY!

AVID is the industry standard video editing software, and now you can learn the basics for free. Even better, it allows 4 video tracks and 8 audio tracks which should be more than enough for you to create an awesome product…

The historic downside with AVID has been the really steep learning curve. AVID say that this entry level version is much easier for beginners, but the great news is the skills you will pick up are transferable to all versions of AVID… That said, it is not a programme you will pick up by blasting through the instructions the night before you try a final edit, so if you want a worthwhile (and fun) project for the break, get some filming done, and start teaching yourself how to edit like the pros.

And I’ve kept the best bit till last. AVID Media Composer|First is free. No moneys needed… nothing… so what you waiting on? For what it’s worth, I’ve only ever played with AVID, but I’m downloading it as well and plan to teach myself the basics between now and August. Feel free to do the same, and post your thoughts/questions/discoveries in the comments. 🙂
