Introduction and Project Overview
Hi there, my name is Dirk Stoppe. I'm a freelance editor for over 14 years. My latest projects were the VFX editing of Grand Budapest Hotel and parts of Roland Emmerich's White House Down, as well as a lot of different image film, commercial documentaries, and music video projects. In this course, we are going to learn to use the Avid in an efficient way to edit a music video with interview parts altered with a bit of VFX. Among lots of other stuff to pick up, you will get an insight into making a sync map and MultiGrouping of material and effects, organizing the statements and get a quick result, the workflow with After Effects, and lots of little tricks and tips that can save you a lot of time and help you correct the major problems that come with such projects. By the end of the training, you will have a good idea which way to go to get from A to B in swift fashion in Avid because time is usually of the essence, while making the best of the material at the same time. I'm really excited to share these tips and techniques with you, so let's get started with the first lesson.
