Before moving toward the shortcuts we should talk about the versions and platforms on which you are running the software. Don’t worry about the different versions of Avid media composer because controls are 90 percent same. The important thing which we need to care about is the platform. We run Avid media composer on two different platforms. Platforms here refer to operating systems. Two platforms are Windows and Mac. There is slight difference between the controls in these two. As we all know that we have two important keys in windows which are generally used in most of the shortcuts, Alt and Ctrl. Whereas in Mac Alt is replaced by Option and Ctrl is replaced by a unique square symbol which all the Mac users will be familiar with. Only these two control keys play the major role in making the composer easy to use.

We have discussed 20 basic shortcuts which will help you make your job easier and all the above mentioned shortcuts are for windows platform.
