About Edit suites
Please note: due to Covid-19, some of the locations may currently have safety measures in place, and be subject to reduced hours and capacity. Find out about changes on campus on our dedicated Covid-19 webpages.
The edit suites in the Professor Stuart Hall Building are bookable individual rooms that all have iMacs pre-installed with Avid Media Composer, the industry-standard non-linear editing software used in broadcast, television, and feature film production. They also have client monitors (TVs) as well as two computer screens. Dedicated speakers and pre-amplifiers mean you can hear your creations in all their glory.
These facilities will allow you to gain hands-on experience of working with high-end digital formats, and learn sophisticated workflow techniques, such as offline/online editing, picture grading, and VFX. A communal Avid lab is available to use in case all the individual suites have been booked up. You may also have access to Goldsmiths’ Avid Pro-tools edit rooms, which feature full audio mastering setups, and control surfaces for properly mixing your film audio.
No matter what subject you choose, you will have access to video-editing software with the Adobe Creative Suite that’s installed on the iMacs in the IT Suite. See some of the work created at Goldsmiths on GoldDust.org.uk, which showcases fiction and documentary films, as well as other creative work by our students.
Some students will be able to take the Avid Certified User Accreditation (Media Composer 101 and 110), to consolidate and solidify their editing skills. All Avid edit suites, screening rooms, and sound studios are linked together using Avid’s ISIS storage area network, allowing you to edit and playback your footage and films in any of them without having to transfer any footage.
