  • Overview of editing with EDIUS

  • Trimming
  • Working with audio

  • Outputting to tape, DVD, and files

(music playing) Hi, I'm Maxim Jago. I'm a director, editor, trainer, and author. As a trainer, I've worked with just about every kind of media producer, including broadcasters in several countries, independent filmmakers, and educators. I worked with Grass Valley to create the EDIUS prime worldwide certification program. Wrote the course book, and trained and certified all of the original trainers who trained the trainers, who are now training the users all over the world to edit with EDIUS. My creative work gives me a real world view of the tools I'm teaching. And I will be sharing my best practice for cutting with EDIUS. EDIUS is shockingly good to edit with.

The real time performance and format support is second to none. EDIUS is beautifully easy to use. But there are a few core techniques, technologies, and tips that will make a massive difference to your editing experience. That's where these lessons come in. We'll be looking at editing multiple media types, reducing complex edited sequences, and output, to multiple media. We'll learn about the many editing shortcuts, and getting to grips with the combinations of timeline modes that sometimes bamboozle new editors.

All of the media and part made projects are available for you to work with along side. I hope you'll find these lessons fun and super efficient for transforming you into an EDIUS editor.
