Avid Xpress Pro / Media Composer and workspaces

Avid%20Workspace.gif

Do you have your Avid interface setup just the way you want but do not know how to save it so that you can return to it at any time? Or you may want to have multiple workspaces, for example, one for capturing, one for color correction, one for audio editing, etc. I have four separate workspaces that I use almost everyday. These workspaces not only make my interface easier to use but it also allows me to be more efficient at my job. Now isn’t that what we all want? Here is quick breakdown of how to save your favorite workspace:

Click the Settings tab in the Project Window.


1. Click the Settings tab in the Project Window.

The Settings scroll list appears.
2. Scroll to the bottom of the Settings scroll list and click Workspace.
Workspace is highlighted.
3. Select Edit > Duplicate.
A new Workspace setting appears in the Settings scroll list. If you are duplicating a previously named workspace setting, a .1 appears at the end of the new name.
4. Click to the left of the new workspace you want to set.
A check mark appears next to the workspace. workspace.

5. Assign a custom name to the new workspace:
a. In the column between Workspace and User, click until you see a text cursor and box. Make sure you click the Custom setting name column and not the Setting name.
b. Type a name for the new custom workspace, for example, Capturing.
c. Press Enter.
6. Open the windows and tools with which you want to associate the workspace. Resize and move the windows to the location where you want them to appear on the monitors.
7. Double-click the custom workspace setting.
The Workspace Settings dialog box opens.
8. Select options. For information about options, see Workspace Settings.
9. Click OK.
