Letҳ Edit with Media Composer ֠Settings, Settings, Settings

One thing that I find throws editors for a loop, whether they are a seasoned Media Composer editor, or new to the application, is their settings. Media Composer has probably the most in-depth settings that you’ll find in an NLE, and there are certain things you need to know, before you get up and running. In this lesson, we’re going to discuss when you should create new user settings, and then show you how you can “borrow” settings from previous versions of your settings, or even from another editors settings altogether! Enjoy!

Don’t forget that you can purchase all your Media Composer software and hardware right here on Videoguys.com. Check out our software at this link, and remember that Media Composer now supports a variety of third party hardware like AJA that you can check out here!
