NEW TUTORIAL EASES TRANSITION FROM FCP TO MEDIA COMPOSER 5 “The easy-to-comprehend training allows anyone in the industry, especially those familiar with Final Cut Pro, to tap into Media Composer’s open, flexible workflow options — from native support for the industry’s most popular file-based workflows, to multi-channel audio support and stereoscopic editing capabilities,” explains Carolyn Lightner, senior director of worldwide training for Avid. “Knowledge of both solutions gives editors the choice to use the editing solution best suited for the job at hand.”

“Our new ‘Avid Media Composer for Final Cut Pro Users’ course is a perfect way for Final Cut Pro editors to stand out among the crowd,” explains Class On Demand CEO Paul Holtz. “It presents a clear and concise view of Media Composer’s powerful interface, allowing Final Cut Pro editors to quickly identify similarities between the two editing suites and confidently take advantage of its capabilities.”

The video is priced at $99.95 and is instructed by Avid Master editor/author, Steve Hullfish. Training is broken down into 14 segments, ranging from fundamental differences of the two non-linear editing systems, to creating effects, to multi-camera editing techniques. Pros can check out a preview of “Avid Media Composer for Final Cut Pro Users” at the Class On Demand Website (

The company offers the release on DVD-ROM or via streaming.
