Avid tutorials for Final Cut users
on Sep 16, 2009 at 6:18:18 pm

Hey all, so I'm a final cut editor looking to learn avid editing as well and since I don't have the money for the avid classes, I was hoping to at least get the basics down with a tutorial book. I did buy one already (Avid Editing: A Guide for beginning and intermediate users), but it's really frustrating, as its written for people who have never edited before. I am wondering (and I have done some googling and come up with nothing) if there is a book for final cut editors moving to avid. any help would be appreciated!

Thanks, Alex

I have a book, "Final Cut Pro for Avid Editors". You would just have work backwards. This might be helpful.

Actually, I have a copy if you'd like more info, contact me.

I have that same book and it's a good one. However, I did take licensed Avid classes back in 04' up to the intermediate level so I already had a base of knowledge to work from (90% of my work now is in FCP) - I just had to step back into the Avid world for a tv show and found that book to be a great refresher...

You can go to avids site and look on the forum. There are a number of tut by a member dealing with Avid basics. Its not a FCP to Avid type of tutorials but it could help get your head around how MC works.

And here are the next 46 or so tutorials:

Nothing especially for FCP switchers so far, but still very useful for any beginning or intermediate user. I also can recommend "Avid Editing (any edition)" from Sam Kauffman.

Cheers
