Course Description and Schedule
Our goal is to offer a gratis dax Certification Course to educate and train production personnel on how to best use the dax Digital Dailies® and production workflow applications, applied to real world scenarios.
The session will be divided in two sections, administrative and technical, held back to back. The administrative session will include: basic usage, system administration (adding folders, users and groups), automation of approvals and release of materials (dailies release, script distribution, production reports) and training new users. The technical session will include: technical specifications; importing/exporting media from any NLE and VFX systems (Avid, FCP, etc.); creating clips/playlists/notes and comments associated to time code; and more. We will be covering best practices as well as giving you insight into how the studios and productions manage communication and workflows.
