    Re: Moving from Media Composer to Adobe Premiere

    True and Adobe just canceled MUSE people are upset. Same could happen with Premiere and we know what happened to Final Cut 7.

    Avid does what Avid does or it does nothing.

    What is that, buying other companies and then canning the product?

     

    Sorry, couldn't help it.

    "Avid does what Avid does or it does nothing." My take on Avid doing what Avid does in Video and Sound as opposed to everything else.

    Adobe-web, animation, motion graphics, cartoon animation

    Apple- watches, I phones and what ever else Steve could think up. Not sure how interested in video they may be.  

    Companies can make their money from different avenues but Avid makes their money of video production. Best as I know.

    Re: Moving from Media Composer to Adobe Premiere

    yeah i know.

    that's how they make ther money.

    but they have a knack on blowing it on companies that they buy above and sell below market value. M-audio, softimage.

    Euphonix is next i guess.

    If they had invested in their core business instead, MC would be unrivaled.

    Its knowing the workflow and shortcuts that make the difference.

    AMA link some clips. Subclip them down. Maybe create a frame view story board and drag it to a sequence.

    Background transcode to a workable offline resolution.

    Auto duck the audio under a dialogue track. That sort of thing all carried out in a fluid efficent manner shows why experienced editors still use MC as the go to to get jobs done.

    The problem with 'Avid is only a select few know the shortuts. There isnt enough training material available. As much as some don't want to admit PPro is popular because theres so much content on learning and using the software on youtube. When you try to learn anything on MC its from tutorial a few years old. This is one of the reasons MC is not well known by the newer generation. Even in the community forum you can't find any basic training. Douglas was the only one providing content a few years ago on using the MC. It would be great to get training from certified Avid trainers but thats not always possible. The kids at colleges are using Premiere because content on how to use the software is available. Tips and tricks on how to do use the animatte or paint tool would be nice. How about on how to do slo mo in MC which could use some refining. 

    ANyone mind showing on how to do a story board on MC for those who are new to the software? Or how to do auto duck on audio? I understand MC is for a niche or certain tier of editors in hollywood, broadcast etc but there needs to be more awareness of the software and how to use it. And there needs to be newer powerful features to compete.
