That is what I find really interesting.
You know you can experiment, try things. You can't break it.

When I bought version 1 of Edius . I cleared my mind kept the manual closed captured some footage and started editing clicking left and right.
I knew which things I wanted to achieve. After 2 days I opened the manual and saw that I could do thing that where not in there.

There where also thing I could achieve easier. But I had discovered more then one way to achieve something.

When one of our Editors joined us she used to cut on Discreet Edit.
I fired up Edius and asked here if I should run here trough the application. She said no asked me the shortcut key card and spend a day with Edius.
next day she had a few questions.
But she could achieve stuff because the basic editing things don't change.
Btw she fell in love with Edius and never asked me about transitions or effects.

There are people who look before asking, and those who ask before looking. I prefer the former to the latter.

That said, I do understand the value of "starter" training. Cool things you can do that gives you idea and hopefully spurs you to play even more. Sometimes this just takes a cool video that someone's made using (insert name of tool here).

Things like Studio Daily's Train Up column are great for this.

That' cool with me Brandon :)

But I prefer to know the app instead of effects that are chewed for others to swallow. Once you know the app you will see that possibilties are endless.
So I agree starter training yes. But that is allready done by Mike. :)

Experiment, Experiment is the Key. Put your brain in gear.
We don't want every video to look like the one before. hehe

Very true. There's no substitute for experience.

And now we're a bit off topic and I think I've answered the OP's question... so I'm closing this one out.
