I've been primarily a FCP and Premiere editor, and would like to learn Avid. Can anyone here recommend a tutorial site to speed the transition?

Thanks Michael, this looks like a great place to start. Although many of the links appear to be down.

You need to view these tutorials using Firefox, as they don't work in IE

David-

I was in your position four months ago and frankly found there to be a wealth of resources. A good place to begin is right here with the COW's Kevin P. McAuliffe series of video tutorials. They are excellent. I was also able to get answers to some specific questions and clarifications here on the COW's Avid forum.

Because it came with my purchase of the Avid side-grade of FCP, I also had access to the full Class on Demand Media Composer / Symphony series by Steve Hullfish. If I hadn't been given Class on Demand I still probably would have purchased it.

Next I found Christian Foerster's "Avid Screencasts" through the iTunes store. There's a lot to learn from these, but the only drawback is the early ones are from previous versions of Media Composer, so there will be some things that are different from the current version.

These 3 have gotten me up, running and making money, but I still have some areas where I'm still learning. And now this is the first I've heard of the Gaijin series and, after a few preliminary clicks through I can see that there's a lot of good stuff here also.
