Avid is the defacto industry standard for video production through the majority and Ministry as it is very good at managing extraordinarily large projects through centralized data stores of information, hardware infrastructures, and by extraordinarily capable server architectures. You’ll find this to be the software of choice for content providers like CBC, Global, CTV and others.
We have intentionally decided to not start new students with Avid architecture but rather with Adobe Premiere. Adobe Premiere is an equally powerful editing application that does not carry with it the hardware overheads, and steep learning curves often associated with Avid projects. That being said, Avid training may become a part of Canadian invasion for the more advanced users in the not too distant future.
