  • Re: Avid DS - Tip Of The Day

    When you need to organize clips for a cut, don't forget the "clip search" function. This lets you search your project for clips and sequences with varying parameters for narrowing your search. No need to open bins to search through them, DS will search all available bins in a project. Once... (read more)

  • Re: Avid DS - Tip Of The Day

    When building multiple versions of a sequence, it is often best to build the base sequence as a "Reference Sequence". This allows you to have one "parent" sequence that all the versions are generated from. If there is a change to a shot, effect etc., make the change to the master... (read more)

  • Re: What I like about EDITING on DS

    "Magnetize" In FCP, I'm always toggling "snap to edit." In MC, I use "Ctrl +click" to get to an edit point. In DS, finding an exact edit point, or mark or locator, is always there with the subtle "Magnetize" feature. I use it constantly. They even put in an... (read more)

  • Re: Avid DS - Tip Of The Day

    OK here's my tip-o-the-day. Sometimes I need to be adding disclaimers or things to generic 'flattened' spots in SD that have 3:2 pulldown. Of course you'll always wind up with cuts on a mixed frame (what is it, a 40% chance?) so the CG will cut on/off early or late by a field, and you... (read more)

  • Re: How did you learn the DS?

    Along with the Learning Collection that Sylvain mentioned, I noticed that the Avid ALEX online training has an old (v7.5) version of th DS101 class. Even though it's a few versions back, most of it should still apply. (read more)

  • Re: What I like about EDITING on DS

    Another favorite part of editing on DS is being able to add multiple audio effects for entire tracks. Setting up a rough compression and eq for a VO track and an eq for the music tracks is a quick way to help the VO pop out without messing around too much with gain for individual clips. Once the edit... (read more)

    [quote user="jef"] May not be number one, but being able to resize and scroll around on the timeline WHILE I am playing a shot or sequence. Jef [/quote] I do that all day long. I always want to see what's coming up next. How are you resizing? I'm always using some combination of Shift... (read more)
