This course is for people who want to start working with live video at events. It's a more concise version of our full two-day course and is aimed at event professionals or those who just need a quick jump-start to get moving.
You don't need any previous experience, though some knowledge of how video works and/or experience with a video or audio sequencer is beneficial.
Our Resolume Avenue course provides a great overview of what is fast becoming the first-choice tool for people involved in live video. Resolume works in real-time and is therefore fast, easy and fun to use – without losing any of the power of traditional video mixing and processing environments.
We start from the ground up – covering the basics of cabling, setting up your project and getting a signal to to the projector or other video display. We will build our projects during the lesson, beginning with a basic crossfader setup and then moving on to add further complexity.
By the end of our brief course you will have all the knowledge you need to start present video content at live events!
