Prevent Offline Media Using Media Creation Settings in Avid Media Composer — EVF Tutorial

This tutorial explains how to use Avid Media Composer’s Media Creation settings to prevent offline media. MC’s Media Creation settings allows you to set what drive and resolution media is created to. TL;DR set this drive and resolution when you first open up a project so the next time you open the project none of your media is offline because it was created to the correct drive.

Music used in this video, “Back To My House” by PALA, was purchased and licensed through my friends at Soundstripe (affiliate link). For 10% off a subscription use the code EVF at checkout.

Avid Media Composer Keyboard Shortcut Quiz — Level 1

Hey! If you remember several weeks ago I came out with a keyboard shortcut quiz for Avid Media Composer. Well many of you downloaded it and I got some really good feedback so I decided to take it to the next level and create a bigger and better one!

I’m calling this one Avid Media Composer Keyboard Shortcut Quiz — Level 1. Yes, Level 1! That means I want to and will make more and tougher ones. This requires two three things from you.

First, you take this quiz! You were going to already so this one is easy.

Second, leave me a comment here or through the contact page to let me know what you thought. Too easy? Too tough? Difficult to use? (BTW, for the life of me I cannot change that gray button with white text. I’m trying desperately to fix it but am not going to keep me from releasing this quiz any longer!)

And third, you stick around and read my message at the end of the quiz.

Alright! That’s it! I kept you long enough. Click the link below and you’ll be taken to…

Avid Media Composer Keyboard Shortcut Quiz — Level 1

PS: When you go to the quiz you’ll be asked to enter your name and email. Don’t worry, that’s just for me and won’t be shared! I may reach out to you in the future if I come out with other items like this one that might be of interest to you though. Good luck on the quiz!!

Once again, you can get to the quiz through the link below:

Avid Media Composer Keyboard Shortcut Quiz — Level 1

Media Composer Keyboard Shortcut Quiz #1

Hey! Just to let you know I’ve made a 2nd and IMO a better overall keyboard shortcut quiz for Media Composer. You can find it here.

Hey there! This is my second product and my first quiz. This is a quiz for Media Composer editors who want to improve their keyboard shortcut skills. It’s a 10-question multiple choose quiz with an answer key.

The quiz is 100% free. Just click Add to Cart. Then click Checkout, enter your email address and click Download files.

If you would like to donate, maybe buy me a beer or something ?, all you have to do is name the price after clicking Add to Cart and you’ll be taken to PayPal. Again, this quiz is 100% free and donating is completely optional.

This quiz is the first of hopefully many more quizzes on Media Composer and post production. I’ll admit that the design is still a bit rough. If you’ve been following me for awhile then you know I like to put something out there then refine it as I go. I think the content is much more important than how it looks — at least for this project at this time. In order to make the next quiz better though I need your help. Send me your feedback on it. How did you like it? Were the questions difficult enough? Was it simple to take? Remember there’s a quiz and an answer sheet (two different PDFs to download).

You can send me your feedback on my contact page. In the subject line please put “MC Quiz 1”. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated!!

I really hope you enjoy my first quiz. Here’s the link one more time:
