    Although Avid Title Tool and Avid Marquee are capable of handling most types of Text effects, it can be nice to find a quick way of using a Title template to do some more advanced effect. AvidFX has a very powerful Title tool under the bonnet. Here is a look at a quick way of creating a Bullet List.... (read more)

  • Expanding Library of Media Composer Tutorials

    I am a relative newcomer to Media Composer (early 2008) and as I began to feel my way around I got the idea of documenting my adventures by creating short video tutorials, Avid had already a large number of excellent, professionally produced tutorials online.

  • Using Keyframes in Effects

    To say the least, I was very confused by keyframes when I first began using BorisFX and later AvidFX. I could never seem to get consistent results.

  • A Split Screen Effect using "Crop" Control

  • Nudge Nudge!

    The default keyboard has a set of very useful "nudge" commands mapped to four of the keys. Newcomers might miss these in their initial meeting with MC. Maybe you can find some use for them! Regards, Douglas The playback screen can be maximised by using the "Full-screen" button in... (read more)

  • Pseudo Timelapse

    The long GOP structure of HDV make life difficult if you want to create a timelapse video. The workaround I use is done by taking a video of the complete event then use the Motion Effect Editor to create the effect by timewarping.
