Visual effects skills in Avid Media Composer are becoming a basic requirement of professional assistant editors. So it’s vital to know how to rotoscope composite and do other visual effects tasks.

In this free lesson Master The Workflow’s Richard Sanchez takes you through the basics of Rotoscoping and Comping in the Avid using two examples – Matte in Fill and Stabilization.

You’ll learn some best practices for using the Animatte, 3D Warp, Matte Key, Stabilize and Region Stabilize effects and also how to work efficiently in the timeline to adjust your shots when changes are made, and keep them in order for final turnovers.
