Sitting In Avid: Duplicate Media, Sorting Clips and More

Come sit in on some instruction I give to a seasoned FCP editor, Aaron White, on some Avid instruction. Some points I go over in this video include;

Selecting clips on the tracks using the keyboard.

Selecting specific tracks (only V1 versus V1, A1, A2). This is what controls where your clips go from the source monitor as well.

Sitting In: Avid Media and a Bad Hard Drive Name

I am in the middle of handing footage off to Aaron and we cannot get the Avid Media Composer to find the hard drive in the relink tool.

The solution was Aaron’s hard drive had a “/” in the name. Take a look and see if you are running into or have run into the same situation.
