Avid Media Composer: Freddy’s Big List of Relevant Avid Links

Chapter: Editing

Topic: Tips and Techniques

During my 10 years of working as Tech Support at Avid Sweden I have been continuously maintaining links for the most common and relevant questions regarding Avid Support, Video Tutorials, Downloads, Installation, Licensing, Compatibility, Workflows and Documentation.
This PDF document has evolved to a pretty big document with useful links for anyone using Avid Products like:
Media Composer, Symphony, NewsCutter, DS, Pro Tools, Sibelius, Unity MediaNetwork, Interplay, MetaFuze and even 3rd party products. There are also links to workflows for RED, XDCAM, P2, GFCAM, AMA, 3D and more.
In the same document I have added links to several 100’s of video tutorials that I have found on sites like vimeo, youtube and of course the Avid Community pages. There are several days of free video training, and they are only 1-2 clicks away.
