    Ebook News! (Sorta)

    August 28, 2012, 12:54 pm
    The book's release was almost a year ago (can you believe it?) and I am still chugging away at making the book better. Being a one-man-band, it takes a bit of time and that is why the ebook is just coming out. (Sorry for the wait!) Since thousands of minds are better than one...

      How do I map a function from the Command Palette t

      August 24, 2011, 6:50 pm
      Once you learn how to do this, you may never stop! First, go to the Settings Tab of the Project Window and click on Keyboard. Next, open the Command Palette (Ctrl/Cmd + 3) and make sure "Button to Button Reassignment" is selected. You can now drag any function from the Command Palette to either your...

      How many subclips can be grouped in Avid?

      August 18, 2011, 9:35 am
      This is a bit of a loaded question. I've grouped hundreds of subclips at once and didn't have a problem. I think your best bet is to make sure that the sequence the subclips are being created from isn't too long and doesn't have too many tracks of video in it. A good barometer is...

      What is the difference between groups and multigro

      August 11, 2011, 1:23 pm
      Groups are a set of clips that are linked together and the different camera angles are simultaneously viewed in a split-screen view. A multigroup are a set of groups that are linked together and the different camera angles are simultaneously viewed in a split-screen view. Grouping is appropriate for situations when 2 or more cameras...

      Avid Questions and Answers

      August 11, 2011, 1:23 pm
      There are questions that I have been asked that are answered more appropriately in a Q and A format versus an entire blog post. If you have a question that you would like for me to try to answer (I don't know everything so you might stump me here and there) send me an email...

      Working with Avid is sometimes very tongue-in-cheek and the blog will now display those special moments we have with Avid in comic form. Enjoy. Kyra

      Multigrouping Thwart #2

      July 28, 2011, 3:54 pm
      Multigrouping is complicated enough without making it even harder on yourself by oversyncing your clips. You may wonder how do you over sync a clip? Easy and frequently done by new multigroupers. Imagine this scenario. (Which isn't too farfetched.) You are the luckiest AE on the planet because you have to group a 2-camera shoot...

      I'm in the final stages of finishing up the book and wanted to give you a little preview of the book cover. I wish I could give a timeline of exactly when the book will be out but I can confidently say "Before the end of the year!". I will keep you updated on the

      Your first Avid Assistant Editor gig you get might have you feeling a little overwhelmed. New job, unfamiliar faces and the daunting realization that you don't know what is expected of you. That is the case with any new job and most people hope they learn fast and ask the right questions that make them...
