  • Tutorial: Fit to Fill in MC5 - Corrected

    Well, the blanking during my renders that were shown on the first version of this "Fit to Fill in MC5" raised a question on the MC forums. I decided to try and find the problem. It was my monitor set-up that was causing the problem. A new wide screen monitor and a mis-matched 2nd monitor with...

  • Tutorial: What Filters should I see in my Effects Palette?

    It is quite easy to forget which filters you had originally after installing Media Composer and which filters are new ones that have been added after installing 3rd party applications. Hopefully this short Tutorial will help you decide if your installations have succeeded or not. Regards, Douglas This...

  • Working with Vector-based Objects - Basic Explanation

    When I was adjusting the vector shape in my Tutorial on creating an out of body effect, I realised that not everyone using MC is at home with vector graphics or the control of them. For that reason I took a very basic look at the tools available in the Animatte Key Effect and how they can be used to...

  • Using Animatte and 3D-Warp to create an "Out of body" Experience.

    It all started with an email I received from a Forum member asking how I would go about creating an "Out of Body" effect. At first I thought all I would have to do would be to place two video tracks above each other and adjust the transparency. Of course that did not work as both "bodies"...

  • Hold a Dissolve at 50% for a set Time

    I saw a thread on the Avid MC-PC Forum asking if there was a way to create a dissolve that would stay still for 8 seconds when it was halfway! I never tried that before, so I was inspired to get started and make a video tutorial to answer the post. Now, just under 2 hours later, I have uploaded the result...

  • Handwriting Revisited

    Unfortunately my emphasis on using a continuous stroke while masking out the handwriting in my original tutorial on this topic gave the wrong signals. AvidFX is not limited to 1-stroke in this case. Multiple strokes are quite feasible. This follow-up tutorial is to show that multiple strokes can be used...

  • Handwriting Effect with AvidFX

    Making text appear to be written onto the screen can be easily done with the Paint Effect. However the text that you write with a mouse or even a graphic tablet can leave a lot to be desired. This tutorial shows one method of using a standard Handwriting Font as your base for the effect. Good Luck.....

  • Expanding Library of Media Composer Tutorials

    I am a relative newcomer to Media Composer (early 2008) and as I began to feel my way around I got the idea of documenting my adventures by creating short video tutorials, Avid had already a large number of excellent, professionally produced tutorials online. I learned very much from watching them. However...

  • AvidFX Text Tool - 1

    I guess that because there are already two text tools in MC the Text Tool in AvidFX is often overlooked. When it is not overlooked I imagine that many newcomers are, like I was, intimidated by the interface. In actual fact, as long as you don't try running before you learn to walk the basics of the...
