Script-Based Editing is Avid’s Untapped Ecosystem


One of Avid Media Composer’s shining gems for narrative editing is its Script-Based Editing interface. It allows editors to click on words in a film, TV show or documentary’s script and jump right to the corresponding video itself. Scripts or interview transcripts are synced-up manually by an assistant editor, or automatically using ScriptSync (an option in Media Composer). Editors discover this often-overlooked aspect of Media Composer, and never look back.
