Fit to Fill Button.gif
Most Avid editors are unaware that you can use the Fit to Fill button to make motion effects. If you have a space in your time line that you need to fill or you can set and in to out and simply use the fit to fill button to create your motion effect. There are a few things you need to be aware of when using the fit to fill button. By default it creates the effect using the Duplicated Field rendering which does not produce the cleanest looking motion.

 You need to change this to Interpolated Fields in the render settings dialog box in your project window. It is very simple to use fit to fill and saves a lot of time if the exact duration of your clips are not important. The best way to practice this is to mark an in and out on your timeline in the desired area of your timeline. Click the fit to fill button and save to your bin of choice. I reccomend mapping it to your keyboard for easy access from the command palette or placing it as a button under your source window.

Genius Gear ShopWe've been teaching digital video workflows for a long time, and we've gotten good at finding the right hardware to make those workflows run smoothly.  Finally, we're proud to share our gear finds outside of our classroom: introducing the Genius Gear Shop.

We're starting out small.  Today, we're launching with just a couple of the products that our students have liked best.  For each product, we're working on an honest, hands-on video review to explain why we think it's worth a look -- and we'll give you a discounted price if you'd like to buy it directly from us.  

Speaking of videos, we're also selling video walkthroughs and completed project files of several of our tutorials.  You're more than welcome to tweak the project files for your own projects.

Read on for an introduction to some of our new products ... or head on over to the store and browse around!
