  • 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.

    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.

  • Paint a Path with AvidFX

    I once used BorisFX as a plug-in to Avid Liquid and later in MC 2.8 to paint paths. I never could get consistent results. After upgrading to MC 3.x and installing Avid FX I found that the Paint a Path effect was much easier to apply and control. AvidFX (Boris Red) still presents a steep learning curve... (read more)
