Apple Pro Training Series: Advanced Editing and Finishing Techniques in Final Cut Pro 4 with DVD Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Final Cut Pro is a serious tool for serious (usually professional) editors--which means that if you're like most users, you already know the software's interface, are well-versed in editing basics, and are interested in just one thing: going as deep as possible with the software's tools and features. This is the book for you. In Apple Pro Training Series: Advanced Editing and Finishing Techniques in Final Cut Pro 4, the post-production and training company, DigtalFilm Tree, provides step-by-step instruction in all of the tasks real filmmakers are most interested in: using Mattes and filter effects, creating different "film looks," achieving complex transitions, working with video scopes, adjusting contrast, balancing color and luminance, and more.

Each chapter in this self-paced, Apple-authorized guide represents a self-contained lesson--with a project to complete, a review section, and bonus exercises to reinforce what you've learned. The accompanying DVD includes lesson files and all the materials you'll need to complete the book's projects for a comprehensive course in Final Cut Pro.

DigitalFilm Tree is a West Hollywood-based post-production and design house and authorized training center for both Apple and the Motion Picture Editors Guild. The group, which includes members of the original Final Cut Pro design team, began a revolution in the post-production industry by proving that innovative and affordable systems can produce professional results.

For this book, DigitalFilm Tree assembled an unparalleled team of experts, each contributing his or her area of expertise. Join film director and editor Michael Wohl, effects and color correction specialist Andrew Balis, audio pros Martin Sitter and Mary Plummer, type effects wizard Steve Martin, veteran DVD producer Yan Shvalb, and award-winning film editor Daniel Fort as they bring together their decades of experience in this consummate guide to Final Cut Pro's powerful advanced features.

Book News Annotation:

Assuming a familiarity with the film editing software's interface and the fundamentals of film post-production, this text provides instruction on the use of Final Cut Pro for advanced editing and finishing techniques. Emphasizing a hands-on approach, the text covers editing, trimming, color correction, as well as the use of the bundled software Soundtrack and LiveType. Final chapters cover issues of project management and working with film and 24p HD video. The DVD contains media files necessary for completing the lessons.
