Reviews

"The Avid Handbook has always been an useful supplement to Avid's own excellent manuals. Greg Staten's latest edition introduces readers to the inner workings, tips, tricks and hidden techniques behind Avid's newly updated Media Composer 3.0 software. Avid's manuals can teach you the right buttons to push, but Staten takes you further into the philosophy and workflow behind the software, to ultimately help you be a better editor. It's not just the what and where, but the even more important, how and why. Regardless of experience level, this is an essential text for every Avid editor." - Oliver Peters, President and Founder, Oliver Peters Post Production Services
