Media Composer Powers the Jam-Packed Adventure

The timeline on a Paddington movie is colossal and Media Composer handled that with ease. With over 20 layers of audio, and a similar amount of video, it’s easy to take for granted how complicated that can be. Avid not only supported the entire operation, but also enabled us to have playback in a high resolution.

Don’t underestimate really knowing your stuff, especially the tools. Work 100-hour weeks for almost nothing. Be at the right place at right time and have the right skill set and attitude. You need to be prepared to go for it.
