Even if you are intermediately experienced with Avid, you will discover new methods and gain a deeper understanding to take your Avid experience to the next level, with greater confidence.

Your Avid editing bay is incomplete without this book!
The Avid Media Composer 6.x Cookbook is a fantastic source of information for users of all different experience levels. A beginner can pick this book up and have a solid understanding of the program by the end. Being a more advanced user myself, I picked up many helpful and time-saving tips after reading through it.
It walks the reader through things step-by-step, with screenshots of some of the more difficult and in-depth tasks. The typical instructional section will start with “Getting Ready,” then to “How To Do It…” and finally, “There’s More…” giving a really thorough look at the task at hand. Items covered run from the simple (Exporting a Still Image) to the complex (MultiCamera Mode Editing).
There is also ample additional information about various terminology within the program that is written in plain English as well as 3 appendixes with even more information. The Avid Media Composer 6.x Cookbook is less a “cookbook” than an encyclopedia! This will make a very useful reference book for anyone who utilizes Avid Media Composer 6 – your editing bay would be incomplete without it. Highly recommended.
