If you are new to Avid Media Composer, you may want to make a few quick modifications to the keyboard layout.

One quick example is re-configuring the A and S keys so they go to each edit point.

The default setting for the A and S keys sends you into trim mode. 

Navigate to the Avid project window and click on the settings tab.

Double click on the keyboard settings.

Next, navigate to the tools menu and choose command palette.

Map the Rewind button to the A key, and then map the Fast Forward button to the S key.

Now go ahead and close the keyboard and command palette windows.

Navigate back over to the settings tab within the project window and double click on the Composer settings.

Click on the Fast Forward / Rewind Settings tab

Activate the Ignore Track Selectors, and press the ok button.

That's it!

 Now you've configured the A and S keys so they go to each edit point.

And don’t forget, GeniusDV also offers classroom and flat rate onsite Avid Media Composer training.
