You’ve learned how to use several Media Composer shortcuts, which is a great way to build efficiency and speed in editing. However, the real key to streamlined editing is using the customization tools, which allow editors to tailor the Media Composer environment to their own workflow.

This chapter will introduce powerful tools that can personalize your work environment with changes to the interface, buttons, keyboard, and Timeline. Most powerfully, you can link all of these customizations together with the click of a single button.
