Avid Assistant Editor Workshop



The job of the assistant editor has never been so tough. Assistants are expected to handle a dizzying array of tasks including how to ingest a myriad range of file formats and codecs, Sync and group multiple cameras, prep for export and on-line and of course, organize, organize, organize. Assistants are often expected to know everything from “why did my computer crash” to “why can’t I AMA link my 5D footage” to “where are my are keys?!”.

This two-day workshop will teach you the skills to get you well on your way to becoming an Avid Assistant Editor.  We will cover topics from how to create a project to ingesting file based media such as XDCAM EX and Canon 5D footage to prepping for on-line and creating an AAF export.
