MC 101/110 | 5 Day

Media Composer Fundamentals I & II - $1,995

User certification test is now FREE with this course!


This five-day course bundle combines our MC 101: Media Composer Fundamentals I and our MC 110: Media Composer Fundamentals II to provide the foundation for the Media Composer User Certification Exam.

You will first learn about the interface and basic editing techniques before moving on to trimming, fine-tuning the edit, adjusting audio, handling multi-camera editing, adding transitions, adding titles, and outputting your finished project. The training is hands-on and features project-based lessons in which you work on real-world projects ranging from extreme sports to dazzling documentary footage.

Once you know the basics of the editing tools, you are ready to learn the fundamentals of creating effects within Avid Media Composer. You will be taken through the basic effects-building interface; then you'll learn fundamental audio adjustments and effects, multilayered video compositing, tracking, stabilization, various retiming methods, and basic color-grading techniques.

Prerequisite: No familiarity with the system is necessary. Completion of a Macintosh introductory course or equivalent experience is required. A background in editing, production, or post-production is strongly recommended.

Each student gets their own workstation.


  • No experience with Avid Media Composer is necessary
