    The Cheat Sheet

    Remember the big fold-out sheet that used to get shipped with every Media Composer system?  For some reason, Avid stopped doing it which was a shame because it was really, really useful. 

    Well, don't despair! 

    I have made a new version for your reading pleasure which you can download from

    http://www.darksunmedia.com.au/ambertech/index.html

    Actually, there are some other handy "thinggmies" which you can download from here too

    I hope you find it useful

     

    Cheers!

    Hi Dave,

    Great idea, but when I tried to open the link in IE 7, I got a message saying "The page cannot be found."

    good luck,

    Re: The Cheat Sheet

     Hi Carl,

    My apologies for the trouble accesing the file.  I just discovered the same problem.  You can work around it if you type the address directly into the address bar of IE. (but of course that is not ideal)

    So...

    I have also attached it to this message so hopefully this will get it to you

    Cheers...

    Re: The Cheat Sheet

    Hi Dave,

    Very nicely done!  The only thing I'd add is the bit about which lassoing technique with which modifier key gets you into what trim mode.  I know that was on a cheat sheet Avid put out in the late 90's, but I haven't seen it in a long time.

    Thanks again for posting this!

    adios,

    Re: The Cheat Sheet

     Hi Carl,

    Thanks for you kind words.  I actually have an original cheat sheet but I can't remember if those tips were on it or not.  I am in New Zealand at the moment butI will check it out when I get back to Sydney

    Cheers...

    Re: The Cheat Sheet

    No worries, Dave.  It might have been on a different cheat sheet.

    Howdy Dave.  Yeah, it's been  along time.  I'm still ACSR/ACI, and working in Hollywood.  I've also been to Africa twice in 5 years setting up Avid systems for a missionary group in Zambia.

    Hey Dave ...

    I'm tasked at work to provide training for experienced editors who are not familiar with Avid.  I'd like to provide a few handouts, in addition to al the ususal links.  Have you updated this?  Better yet, where did you get the images from?

     

    Thanks ....

    Re: The Cheat Sheet

    Hi Randall,

    NIce to hear from you.  No, I haven't updated it for ages I'm afraid.  The images were all cut out of keyboard screenshots.  Please use and modify it any way you want though.

    Cheers,

    Dave Forsyth
