Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Adobe Premiere Elements offers amateur and home moviemakers the opportunity to work with editing tools as powerful as those packed into Adobe Premiere Pro, one of the top tools on the market. Adobe Premiere Elements For Dummies offers these same users not only a guide through all the how-to steps of using the software, but also a valuable reference on how to best apply the tools to a great video project.

Author Keith Underdahl, also author of Adobe Premiere Pro For Dummies, is an experienced video editor who understands what new Premiere users need to know and how to best explain the topics. In this book, Keith describes:

  • Best practices for shooting quality video
  • Picking the clips you want to keep and getting them into your computer
  • How to use Premiere Elements’ editing tools to add an opening credits page, transitions between clips, sound, music, and ending credits.
  • Adding special effects using only computer trickery
  • Putting your finished project on a DVD, videotape, or the Internet

Covering more ground than the typical expanded users manuals you find in bookstores, Adobe Premiere Elements For Dummies is the book you need to get you through your first video-editing project as well as to return to whenever you hit rough spots and need instant help.

Book News Annotation:

This book is a reference and instruction manual intended for beginning video editors who use Adobe Premiere Elements. It begins with basic editing techniques, such as organizing, trimming and editing video clips, using the timeline, and making video transitions. Advanced editing techniques are also covered, including improving and repairing video images, compositing and animating, and adding special effects, sound, and titles. Once a video is edited, readers can learn how to prepare it for online viewing and how to burn it to DVD or record it to videotape. Also included are ten advanced Premiere Elements techniques, ten videography tips and secrets, and ten essential extras for moviemaking, along with a cheat sheet of keyboard controls. Underdahl is the author of several other Dummies books on video editing software.
