    No, Luke, it’s sad. And don’t read anything into my late response either. I’ve just built a new PC and for some reason the password that I thought that I was using on these forums wouldn’t work.

    (Thanks, Margaret, for steering me in the right direction.)

    The first thing that I would do is check out the MEAA. Their website is at http://www.alliance.org.au and has a lot of useful information. In the information section of their website you will find a copy of the Film & TV Crew Standard Contract which you can view or download. Check it out and see how it compares to what you’re being asked to sign.

    If you’re still uncertain you’d be wise to get legal advice before signing anything. Contracts can mean anything or nothing. For full time employment any contract you sign cannot impact on your rights under Worksafe.

    One small issue, Mel. I use Chrome, so it might be an idiosyncrasy of that browser, but the EDIT button on a new post is a very light grey. It thus looks as if it’s disabled. As I have subsequently found, it isn’t, but it is a little confusing.

    You can, or you could sign up to the Avid user forums. There on the Media Composer – PC forum you will find 200+ very useful tutorials, and links to other training threads. The tutorials were created to assist users migrating from Pinnacle products, so they assume absolutely no Avid knowledge.

    If you are an experienced FCP editor you already know the basics. As an Avid assistant you will almost certainly need to concentrate on sound syncing, Avid’s media management and the uses of AMA. There are other things you will need to get your head around, but those are probably good starters.

    The one thing you must not do is try and force Avid to be Final Cut Pro. It isn’t, and if you attempt to drive it that way it will only slow you down.

    It looks very attractive, and it’s well laid out. Congratulations to the team who put it together.
