Here is the link to the AVID website tutorial series. CLICK HERE.
This is a great series. I would recommend watching it once all the way through and then coming in and using the AVID suite. If you have a laptop, bring it in and watch the tutorials again as you work through your project. The most important sections for the nuts and bolts of efficient editing are in my opinion:
Editing Segments in the Timeline
Using Splice, Overwrite and Three-Point Editing
Understanding Trim Concepts
Working with Trim Techniques
Also note that the Flash viewer that this tutorial uses is very flakey and wouldn’t fastforward or rewind, so try and what each chapter section in one go or you will have to start from the beginning.
