    Marianna,

    This is one great intro to MC5.  I have only seen the introduction because I am at work, but this promises to be a very valuable adjunct to facilitate the learning curve.

    Thanks for posting this

    This is the best and most comprehensive presentation of any MC version I have seen.

    I will be watching it over the next few days.

    Highly recommended! Yes

    In addition to the content I can actually understand the accent Big Smile

    Re: Avid Media Composer 5 getting Started Training

    I watched all of these this afternoon and they are outstanding. This is the same guy that's cut a lot of Avid's promotional material like the NAB show reel. This guy knows his stuff. Much better than the previous Lynda.com ones for Avid Xpress, and the old "interactive" flash Avid tutorials. I noticed these are offered for pay on Lynda.com as well but it's great that Avid is offering these for free on their site. Strong, freely available training material is an absolute asset to any software's success. Keep it up.

    Re: Avid Media Composer 5 getting Started Training

    I agree with all and I really hope a moderator will consider getting  a  reference to this video training either pinned at the top of the forum or doing something to make sure it gets  people's attention.

    I looked on Tips and Tutorials tab link above and did not see a referrence to this training,  I would think there would be.

    THESE ARE GREAT TUTORIALS !    WELL DONE, INFORMATIVE.  If you grasp all the concepts  and terminology presented, many many questions that you may have might get answered  - as well as helpful pointers given.  I found myself watching them 2 or 3 times making sure I understood what was being said and shown- and I am sure I will be back a few more times as I get trying what I have seen,

    I would recommend that EVERY LIQUD user at least give a gander to these.  It is amazing how similiar MC's functions are to many of Liquid's.  The advanced tutorials really show that.

    HA HA - guess the jokes on me on that.   I have to learn this forum a little better - I thought pinned posts could not be responded to.   Sorry - I see it there.  Good - now I hope it get's a lot of hits - cause it's great training and not to be missed  - especially if you are coming from the Liquid editor.

    Really clear tutorials although it doesn't goes as deep as I hoped it would.
    So far MC 5 looks great, expect for the dark background. I suppose you can change it if you really want, it distracts the eye and deneutralise the way you look at clips.

    Bob,
    Near the end of this Tutorial (around 13-14 minutes in or so) you can see that you can change the interface brightness.
