This is the perfect class to get started using this intimidating feature-rich editing software. You'll get over the initial fear factor and leave the class ready to tackle simple projects. The instructor shows several methods of accomplishing many tasks, but keeps on track to get you ready to take a project from initial media loading through printing to tape or DVD without getting bogged down in excessive detail that would only confuse novice editors. Highly recommended for people getting started editing in the non-linear world as well as more experienced editors converting from other platforms.ScottRead All Comments
