The Maestro | Designer Basics (MD101) course provides the foundation students need to get up to speed with the basic features and functionality of Maestro | Designer, Avid’s state-of-the-art, real-time broadcast graphics creation solution. This course gives an in-depth overview of the user interface as well as the overall Avid broadcast workflow ecosystem and will ultimately teach students to create graphic templates that will be used with controller applications during broadcast.
During the course, students participate in hands-on exercises to create broadcast graphics templates for a variety of broadcast applications, such as lower 3rds, tickers, stock exchange, election bars, sports stables, and end credits.
