Tips for Editing in Avid Express/Composer
If you are new to editing or even a seasoned veteran being able to move through your footage and make your edits fast and efficiently is a very important part of your editing process. Using the JKL keys to move through your footage is a great way to view your shots. The great thing about JKL is those keys are right below I and O. So all you have to do is press I for you in and O for your out. A lot of editors use this technique for editing on a daily basis. Using this method you only use a small portion of the keyboard and save time over most other methods of editing. This may seem simple to most editors but if you are use to not using the keyboard this is a great place to start.
