Avid Agility is my book covering all things Media Composer, designed to help both newbies and advanced editors get up to speed quickly and easily. The just-released third edition has been extensively rewritten and contains nearly 50 pages of additional material, including a new chapter on Script Integration and ScriptSync. It now focuses squarely on MC 6, and all illustrations reflect that version.

Free resources from the new book "An Editor's Guide to Adobe Premiere Pro"
August 29, 2011, 11:48 am
This book is an excellent resource for experienced editors to learn Adobe Premiere Pro. It begins from an assumption that you already know about video editing in general and only need to learn the details of the features and workflows specific to Adobe Premiere Pro and its companion applications. (I’m quite sure that I'd have the same very high regard for this book even if I hadn’t been its technical editor.)

Murch has been a beacon of pride for editors as he raises the standards of film editing. His first, and only book, In the Blink of an Eye is a great examination of how Murch edits and the techniques that he uses to determine a cut. His extensive knowledge of various topics helps to influence his cuts from science to music. After reading you'll look outside the editing room for ideas in editing.
