Learning Editing Platforms - Eves, C.

Back then, before University, all I knew regarding video-editing was self-taught; and on Adobe Premiere Pro. Being self-taught is a dangerous position to be in. While it is great for fuelling self-initiative and creativity, it can also lend itself to gaps in knowledge and picking up some less than ideal editing habits. This is something I discovered first-hand once I joined the BSc Television and Broadcasting course at the University of Portsmouth, which introduced to the beautiful aggravation that is Avid Media Composer. To say I ‘hated’ Avid when I first got started wouldn’t be strictly true, but it is safe to say that unlike it’s more friendly editing counterparts, Avid is not a friendly beast to tame, and is even harder to truly master (not that I’m implying I’ve mastered it, oh how incredibly naive that would be!)
