Avid Media Composer has some functionality that differs quite a bit to Premiere Pro, and if you're moving from one to the other, or spending time in both you might not be getting the best out of either.
In this issue of Cut/daily I wanted to share some tips from working editors on the lasso functionality inside of Avid Media Composer.
As a quick re-cap the basic functionality is
- Lasso over a single edit point only = Trim Mode
- Lasso over a whole clip Left to Right = Segment Mode
- Lasso over a whole clip Right to Left = Slip Trim selection
- Alt+Lasso = Lasso within tracks possible
Also the show is Ted Lass-o and the tool is Lass-oo, right?
At least, that's how we say it where I'm from. In the US it's the same both times right? Lass-o.
