Deep end of the pool.....

If you are already familiar with video editing that's one thing. If you are like me and have never done this then go on YouTube and Avid has about 20 tutorials that are on average 20 minutes each. Also Benoni channel has some great tutorials.Budget wise the program is $1,299 then also expect to spend $150-$250 for New Blue Titler Pro (its worth it...very coo stuff you can do ).I have recorded with Pro Tools for about 5 years and when you buy Media Comoposer it is sort of like when I was learning how to get rolling working with audio. With both programs...learn short cuts. Actually I watched Lessons 1,2,and 3 from Avid about three times each just to get the basics.I wanted this program to create videos for original songs I have recorded. I write Rock,Blues, Country and other styles inbetween.I highly recommend Media Composer. It cost more than other programs, but I figured there is a good reason for that. I can see endless possibilities for its use.
