      January 22, 2015, 2:52 pm

      Avid Media Composer Quick Transitions

      October 21, 2014, 9:36 am
      Quick Transitions are a simple way to speed up the editing process. You probably already use the "\" key to open up Quick Transitions to set a dissolve. But do you know you can access nearly any transition you use from here? When you open up Quick Transitions there are a few default options. These are a little different depending on the version of Media Composer you are running but they should include at least: Dissolve, Film Dissolve, Film Fade, Fade to Color, Fade from Color and Dip ...

      September 22, 2014, 12:42 pm
