      What is freelance like?

      February 15, 2012, 3:32 pm
      Scary. Exciting. Unpredictable. Frustrating. Expensive. Cheap. Boring. Awesome. You can apply any combination of these words and many more to the life of a freelancer. There are obvious upsides and downsides but the one that always comes to the minds of assistant editors is the money factor. Will I make enough money to support myself?

      I only want to use one particular drive to render

      The Media Creation dialog box (Project window | Settings Tab) is exactly what you need. Click the Render tab and choose the drive you want to render to. Now, when you want to render, this will be the default drive. You can also set default drives for importing, titles and motion effects.

      Troubleshooting within Avid can be a frustrating venture at best and at its worst, you start looking for a new job in a different career field. Fortunately, it doesn't have to be that way if you have the patience and time to do the right thing by Avid. Working with Avid is akin to baking...
