My Top 5 Avid Media
By Brady Betzel
my four years as an assistant editor and my two as a full-time editor,
almost all of my work has been on the Avid Media Composer or Symphony.
Over the years I have collected a few shortcuts that I love to use and wanted to share. I hope you find them helpful.
Replacing the default “A” + “S” Go to Next/Previous Edit with Fast Forward and Rewind
When you open the default keyboard settings in Avid Media Composer, “A” and “S” are used as Go to Next and Go to Previous edit. While this serves its purpose of going to the next edit in the timeline and going into Trim Mode, I prefer it to be used to just jump to the next edit (regardless of which track is selected) and not go into Trim Mode. To do this you need to go into the Command Palette (Tools > Command Palette or CTRL + 3 or CMND + 3). You should also have the keyboard layout open (under settings in the project window > Keyboard).
