    DS 101 Class coming to Los Angeles 10/26 and 10/27!

    Avid will be conducting a DS101 class Oct.26th and 27th in the
    Burbank, CA office.

    Overview:

    This course provides students with exposure to the core skills, workflow, and concepts involved in editing with the Avid DS system.

This course is also appropriate for Avid Media Composer and Avid Symphony users.

     

    Who Should Attend: Producers, assistant editors, online editors, finishing artists, graphics artists, compositing artists, and multimedia producers.   Prerequisites: No familiarity with the system is necessary.  Completion of a Windows introductory course or equivalent experience is required. A background in editing, production, or post-production is strongly recommended.  

    What you will learn

    • Perform basic film editing and trimming
    • Create transitions and basic effects
    • Perform color correction
    • Create simple titling

    I agree too.  Various of us have been telling Avid for years that we feel that they need to stop treating DS training as a cash-cow and offer it for free to whoever wants it in order to build the market.

    Particularly with the new 10.5 software-only version that's imminent, you'd think that alongside the software download button Avid would offer DS101 as a download, so that new users can start to get their heads around it straight away.

    I agree 10,000,000 percent. The e-mail on the DS list this morning was the first indication I had that they would even be offering a class. 

    IMHO, it is ridiculous to pay $450/day for an intro class that has been offered maybe twice in the last 5 years.

    I am glad to see Terence and Tony agree on somehting! Yes, this should be free. It's not even a cash cow, how much will they be able to generate? A couple of thousand? If they charged nothing they could actually win some converts and influence product sales down the line. Yes, this needs to be free, and not only that, they need to send people home with some DS T-shirts and what not.

    Please add my voice to this...

    should be free...

    should be a download...

    should have swag for those who make the bricks & mortar training...

    should have seperate training aimed at those who have Symp, FCP & Smoke experience...

    This is how the rest of them do it in 2010, we need to rise to meet the bar

    Terry I think you left out

    Dr Lucifer's  something about: prolonged sub zero temperatures in Hade's Wink

    Interesting that the DS 101 follows so closely behind the release of DS soft. If pushing people that direction was the aim then call it an evaluation course (no charge) and reap the publicity.  That would have given me a much bigger nudge me in that direction.

    Please make Slip and Slide mode selection AND any added new functions available for mapping (to buttons or KB) via the Command Palette.

    Yes, LOTS of beer.  But it should be decent European beer, not that pale yellow chemical stuff that you guys make Wink

    You Brits can't get it right either T, only the Irish can make beer. It's called Guinness Stout. God's nectar. ;-)

    Don't diss UK beer.

    For a pricey DS 101 course I'd suggest serving Brewdog's "Paradox", an imperial stout aged in whisky casks. http://www.brewdog.com/paradox.php
