Non-Linear Editing I:
(Last offered FA05):
This is a video post-production (editing) course using Final Cut Pro and
AVID systems. The editing process is completely digital, using non-linear

a computer arts course. No prerequisite experience with computers is
required, but some experience with video is. (Either Intro to Video,
or other experience viewed as equivalent by the instructor.)
