Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now the best-selling book on DVD Studio Pro is even better. Fully updated for DVD Studio Pro 4 and with complete coverage of the new version of Compressor, the industrial-strength encoder that dramatically speeds up encoding of MPEG-2 and H.264 HD DVD video, this self-paced guide is the fastest way to learn to author professional, interactive DVDs. Master trainers Martin Sitter and Adrian Ramseier begin with the basics of DVD authoring and take you all the way through DVD Studio Pro’s powerful advanced features. Each chapter presents a complete lesson on an aspect of DVD creation, with hands-on projects for you to complete as you go. All the files are included on the accompanying DVD.

After learning how to storyboard a DVD and plan its interactions, you’ll set chapter markers, build still, layered, and motion menus, and add subtitles and Web links. You’ll also learn sophisticated techniques for juggling multiple audio tracks and camera angles, creating custom transitions, building advanced overlays, and scripting. By the end of the book, you’ll have created four full DVDs.

The Apple Pro Training Series is both a self-paced learning tool and the official curriculum of the Apple Pro Training and Certification Program. Upon completing the course material in this book, you can become a certified Apple Pro b taking the certification exam at an Apple Authorized Training Center. To find an Authorized Training Center near you, go to www.apple.com/software/pro/training.

Synopsis:

Now the best-selling book on DVD Studio Pro is even better. Updated for DVD Studio Pro 4.2, this Apple-certified book uses striking, real-world footage (including the HD documentary One-Six-Right) to build four complete DVDs. This revised edition covers integration with Final Cut Pro 6,  Motion 3, and Compressor 3, as well as the new SD-to-HD workflow. Each chapter presents a lesson in an aspect of DVD creation and finishing, with hands-on projects for you to complete as you go. After learning how to storyboard your DVD and plan its interactions, you’ll set chapter markers, create stories, build still and motion menus, and add overlays and subtitles. You’ll also learn to work with multiple audio tracks and camera angles, create smart buttons and custom transitions, professionally encode audio and video files, and create useful scripts.

Synopsis:

If you've ever dreamed of setting up your own recording studio, Apple's newly acquired Logic high-end audio software is the perfect place to start, and this Apple-certified book provides the training you need to begin creating audio master works with it. Whether you're looking to digitize your musical compositions, create cost-effective 5.1 surround soundtracks, or transfer that song from your head on to CD, this comprehensive book will show you how.

Multimedia artist and veteran audio producer Martin Sitter, along with veteran Logic instructor and keyboardist Robert Brock, uses step-by-step instruction and straightforward, jargon-free prose to demonstrate how you can employ Logic's software synthesizers, sampler, and digital signal processors (compressors, reverbs, and so on) to put the perfect aural polish on your audio creations. You can work through the guide from cover to cover for an entire, hands-on course on Logic--complete with review questions at the end of each chapter, and lesson files and a trial version of Logic on the accompanying CD-ROM. Or you can go straight to the sections that interest you most.
