Avid creates a document for us tech folk, commonly known as the Avid Cheat Sheet.  It’s a “living” document with install / tech gotchas, links, and tech goodness for the new version of Media Composer.   It is absolutely essential for building, optimizing, and configuring an efficient (and sometimes even functional) Avid system.  Here is latest version for 4.0.4.

*This document is applicable for Avid Media Composer 4.0.5 as well.  Check out the slight changes in the Avid Media Composer 4.0.5 README for more information.
