    Returning To Avid

    After a 3 and a half year gap where I used FCP I’m now back using Symphony (V6.0.1) on MAC. I’m having a little finger trouble as the programme appears slightly different J , anything major I should be aware of before I take on anything large ?

     

    Thanks.

    Not an FCP guy myself, so I can't talk about specifics. But there are a lot of sources out there that outline how to map an Avid keyboard like an FCP one to ease the transition. Might be worth looking into that!

    Re: Returning To Avid

    When I 1st started on FCP I tried changing my settings to mirror my last Avid ones , got a bit frustrating after a while. Will probably spend most of next weekend watching videos and stay behind for a bit of a play all next week before work starts the following Monday.

    Quite excited.

    One concern I have is that some of the archive material will need fixing and I'm hoping the standard tools will get rid of some of the more serious faults without having to farm out to somebody with an Arcangel if I run out of time.
