General questions about Avid

Frage von Set_Tiger:
Oktober 2006

So hello everybody!

I'm a noob when it comes Avid Programs and would like to ask you some general questions about Avid programs, because I am very interested in professional editing.

What are the differences between the pro Prgrammer Avid Xpress, Avid Media Composer and Avid Liquid?

What Programs offer this benefit more than other editing programs like Premiere?

If After Effects is compatible with Avid, or had another good Compositionsprogramm with avid?

Is it the work that the really big film editor with Avid?

Schonmal Thanks;)

(if this topic has already been raised once, I beg your forgiveness, but was not) when suchfunktion really find

Antwort von rush:


So once it's true avid often used in large buden will ... in the daily-news operation as synonymous for film. how come? avid gibts already extremely long and has gained acceptance because of its use, and implementing good time is probably so popular. so we kan synonymous to work really fast, if you have the knack. cutter which I knew so many would be reluctant to change ...

avidxpress: more for the normalo-grbrauch with DV / DVCAM, usually synonymous been running well on standard PCs without extra hardware

media composer: additional computer on which it usually only the composer software is installed, with exrta hardware connections and high aulösungen / connection, etc. Of mazen

liquid: Originally pinnacle software, was bought out of avid and only so ansichtssache ... g *'s just quite favorable, many functions, but in my opinion not quite as mature and partly buggy ...

export as quicktime-reference in after effetcs from xpress is straightforward, works quite well.

avid what so special? Good question ... s.avid clear if one comes, one comes synonymous handle on many other system usually quickly ... as the work is interesting and innuitiv. it is not so much with the masu employed as perhaps in other programs ... (with liquid you usually perform as significantly more clicks to get to the target to ...)

if you have the possibility, try just once corresponding program from somewhere or as a test version ... :)

Gibts Avid Media Composer synonymous to German?

If you like this which helps ... DAS is wonderful in Final Cut with Cinema Tools. Whether with Aatoncode; 3-Perfo or what I know. Everything can wonderfully capture, organize and convert eg 24FPS, so you can cut them into Final Cut Pro very loosely in 24FPS. EDL, cut out, possibly PosConform and be happy.

Final Cut editing entirely synonymous, incidentally some of the very great:)

Then find yourself next time. A great tip is to the Avid website.

Antwort von Set_Tiger:

On the Avid site is not really that accurate. It says only where oh is so great avid synonymous and that is used internationally avid .... is all well and good but what is so outstanding book now s.diesem prog?

I've ne trial of MC and am disappointed at first glance a little bit in terms of surface and order. Besides these, and I still can not import views wmv files (sry wenns geht doch And I'm too stupid but the prog seems to be complicated derbo)

I work with premiere pro and would actually like to know if a would be worth working into in Avid Programs.

A Fernsehcutterin who transfer forcibly of Avid after FinalCut had told me recently how much stress you would Neuerlernen. The older you get, the more we dread innovations. The qualitative differences, I can say in a very superficial acquaintance with APP and Avid anything, just that I'm surprised this attitude very much. I have the confidence that the surfaces are well thought out and user friendly, and I understand the structure of within minutes.
I ask you the question this way: What you missed in APP?

Antwort von Set_TiGer:

Premiere is a great program in my eyes. However, I do not feel fast enough to come forward. And I've read that you can work with avid progs quickly and well and that there really is a professional program. I just do not want to back the wrong horse, because it requires a lot of grind your editing software. So I deals mainly with handling and quality.

I've recently viewed avid dv free. For me the funzt not somehow gescheiden. Import of n few clips and then take eeeewig can not edit some of the composer window. Ne idea what lie can do that?

Antwort von Andreas Jigme:


this is true, Avid is not meant to create all kinds of multimedia formats to import and next to stuffed (synonymous when it's done: for example, the Cleaner XL can turn everything into everything ...). Avid DV is such (and based on Avid Avid Free DV) DV material made to cut. Is a program for movie makers, just professional league. Here one can expect a professional minimalismus.

I've learned on the Avid and likes the functional surface. Final Cut is known for something "more accessible" and to be more intuitive ... Avis here comes a little stricter and "rectangle" over. But if the logic has intus Avid is clearly my favorite ... just as we said above, totally mature and very logical. Sure you have to familiarize themselves ... can familiarize s.besten knows of someone who's. And Avid is designed for Zweihandbetrieb: a s.der one s.der Mouse and keyboard. Actually, the Avid will arbeitsweise achieved only with a keyboard. (füpr the beginning as there are stickers for the keyboard on Ebay ...)

Have you ever been to be incorporated into Photoshop? Wow, I would also say there is almost nothing to do intuitively lasts forever until the program details in each dominates. But it's worth ...

Avid is virtually the Mercedes, meanwhile, cut programs and you have the large background of very professional product. Avid editing suites and build whole systems, including hardware ... "Star Wars" became synonymous s.Avid cut, you feel in good company, and the surfaces are always the same, globally for all Avid systems.

Outrageous is the way the color and image correction in Avid, simply incomparable (bad Whitebalance !....? no problem ...)

I realize you like the program,'s just my tools ...

I think it is worthwhile to incorporate here ... but it's synonymous ne type question: I know a bunch of colleagues who swear by Final Cut ...

We have to choose halt ... Prtofessionelle Pgrogramme are always a bit complicated ... is halt so ... but it's worth it. A sense of the benefits and professional functioning (Avid dizipliniert forces you to be anyway) comes only with the years ...

Good luck ... Gruß, Andreas

Correct sense, this feature list is still not.
You just need to know what you need.

It is clear: you have to be incorporated in Avid, which can be difficult to learn alone with the manual. But if you want to be really effective, subject to the safe with a great many things. Also in my experience, Programs, which are not always intuitively seem best to use if you want to work properly on speed AND quality ...

Antwort von Tere:

Hello, synonymous, I have a few questions about Avid.
I've just downloaded Avid Free DV. On further, however, I failed already. Some even learned by testing, I create it but not even upload a video to cut this. Furthermore, I do not understand the exact meaning of "bins".
When I insert a new sequence, nothing happens next. What should I do about it if I want a song or insert similar at all.
I sincerely hope that someone can answer my questions.
Danke schon mal in advance.
