There are a lot of useful tools and features, gems if you will, in Media Composer. Unfortunately, not all of them are completely understood or get the attention they deserve. My hope with this chapter is to do one or more of the following:
Introduce you to a variety of functions you may not have known about
To reveal some functions' hidden abilities
To explain why some of them behave the way they do
And/or to give you a few ideas about how you might put some of them to use
Be sure to take a look at Appendix A, Additional Tips, Tricks, and Explanations.
