SmartTool v2: Transition Manipulation


When Media Composer® 5.0 was first introduced in 2010, one of the biggest changes to the application was the introduction of the SmartTool.

In Media Composer 5.5, the Keyframe button has been moved out of the palette to make room for a new button called "Transition Manipulation". Let's take a look.

About Matt Feury

As Senior Manager for Avid's Post Solutions Marketing, it's my job to lead the marketing strategy of Avid’s video editing systems and their related storage and infrastructure solutions. A big part of my job, and certainly my favorite, is the creation of content that educates and inspires existing and potential customers. A prime example of this is our podcast (The Rough Cut). It's given me the opportunity to connect future filmmakers with industry pro's such as Morgan Spurlock, Kevin Smith, Doug Liman and Ben Affleck. Since joining Avid in 1994 I've had the good fortune to meet and collaborate with customers from all over the world, in every kind of project. And I'm deeply grateful to all of them for letting me be a part of their journey.
