    Hello Gang,

    I just placed an order for the Boris Red trainer hosted by Philip Hodgetts. I wanted to know if this forum felt there are other trainers out there of high quality, beit DVD-ROM based or book.

    I have the CMP book titled: Instant Boris Effects.

    Thank you,

    Alex Alexzander

    There is a training DVD for AVID FX, which is essentially Boris RED, that I believe is pretty good.
    Once you get inside the “FX” filter the interface is the same as RED.
    I have only looked at it briefly but it looked like it was well done.

    I am new at this as well and would like to go through it also.

    Hope this helps you.

    Hi Greg,

    Thanks, and I did place an order for that one on the DigiStore this morning as well. I am actually using the Avid FX from the Toolkit HD, so that worked nicely.

    Are you also using it through the Toolkit for Xpress Pro / Media Composer?

    I’m actually using RED in Final Cut. A local VAR here recomended the Avid FX tutorial since, once you get inside of it, the program is the same as RED.

    I would be interested to hear what you think of it because, as I said, I just briefly looked at it.

    This program seems to be pretty deep as I get more into it. I would like to get better educated quickly and this tutorial seems to be something that can help that process along.
    I hope!!!

    Well I might just write a review for Cow then. I am not sure when it will arrive, but it’s only 2 hours long I think. Should be able to review it quite quickly.

    Let me know how it goes with the DVDs and what is missing for you to get better…. I may be thinking about producing an advanced DVD training for Red 4 when it is launched. It would be great to know what you guys would like to learn.

    Thanks for the advice.

    If I produce a DVD, it will be part of the CreativeCow master series. It will not be a basic DVD on this button does this, but rather an advanced training set showing things like displacement maps etc.

    There are a lot of ways to gain the basics, and almost no one ever does advanced topics. So I’d be very interested to watch it.

    I would have the first chapter to explain basics, the rest to do real world projects.
