GFA 4040 - Advanced Editing with Avid Media Composer 200

This course builds upon the knowledge gained at the 100-level by implementing Avid’s MC 201 and MC 210 Professional Editing curriculum. Students who pass Avid’s two certification exams will earn the industry post-production credential of “Avid Certified Professional” in Media Composer. With the step-by-step guidance from an Avid Certified Professional Instructor, students will learn the skills needed to optimize editing workflows, streamline the ingestion process and manage media files. Students will also learn advanced picture editing techniques, how to prepare for multi-camera editing, and how to work with graphics and mattes. Additionally, this course introduces compositing with the 3D Warp effect, color correction, and some of the wide range of audio tools and effects included in Media Composer. Focusing on real-world workflows, concepts, and techniques, Media Composer Professional Editing takes students to a higher level of understanding and editing ability, providing the knowledge to distinguish themselves as post-production professionals.
