The Dodge College of Film and Media Arts has manuals specifically written to meet our students' needs. Find them here along with other manuals to support you during production and post.

There is also an Avid manual written specifically for Avid users at the Dodge College. It is simple, plainly written, and copiously illustrated. It covers all basic editing functions and workflow issues specific to Avid. Every student who will be editing should read it in its entirety. 

In addition, we have posted many of the manufacturer’s manuals for both production and post-production equipment.
