So, I'm a recovering audio engineer and I recently had a paid video gig fall in my lap. So, using the client's gopro I'll be hopefully shooting a series of instructional videos. I'm inclined to use avid media composer for editing given my experience and comfort level with pro tools. I'm already seeing some crossover in design philosophy with regard to protect setup, file structure, etc.
While I know that avid is probably overkill for what I'm doing now, I'd rather learn on one software and stick with it than have to upgrade and start the learning curve over later. The new subscription model they're doing for the software also makes it entirely affordable given that this is actually a paid gig.
So, that said are there any media composer guys out there willing to hit me with some pointers (things you wish you had known sooner) and/or willing to serve as a resource if I get hung up on something?
Thanks in advance!
P.s. I'm a pc guy in Windows 7 pro
