"The Media Composer Companion is the best friend you can have whether you are a long-in-the-tooth pro who needs to check something quickly or a newbie learning Avid for the first time. Every editor should keep a copy by their keyboard."
Dr. Trevor Hearing
Principal Academic | Faculty of Media and Communication

Excellent: Clear instructions and easy to read. A benefit to first timers and seasoned users alike. Well worth the price. We bought some for our University and they will help our post-production students reach new levels of skills in editing on Media Composer.

Excellent: I have been an Avid Certified Instructor for over 13 years and when I used to teach editing at Miami Dade College in Florida, USA, I used Roger's previous book. I liked it, learned from it, and found it practical. I am grateful for that. With the new book I think Roger has done a good job explaining and showing, with menu screen captures, enough of a particular topic or technique for the user to be able to implement it right away, without overwhelming the user with too much information. If a student wants to learn Media Composer and does not need the Avid Certificate which requires the use of the official courseware I would definitely recommend this book.

I am halfway through Roger Shufflebottom’s book and it is EXCELLENT!!! Highly recommend you get a few for your school.
