Overview
Status: Available | Released: Aug 4th, 2006
Covers Final Cut Pro and Final Cut Express.

Apple's Final Cut is the single biggest innovation powering story-telling since the invention of the pencil! If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth a thousand pictures ... and thousands more beside ... Video empowers storytelling in exponential ways. And Final Cut Pro empowers video editing.

Video editing is mostly science ... blending pixels over time to create the illusion of motion is the fundamental principle at work whenever you edit in Final Cut. Consequently, it pays in spades to understand the science behind video.

Using routines honed in the classroom, Martin Sitter demystifies frame rates, fields, video resolution and aspect ratios through easy to understand examples. These fundamental concepts supply a solid base to build upon, which Martin quickly does.

You'll learn what codecs to use to maximize real time editing, how to properly nest sequences, multi-camera editing, and a whole lot more.

There's really too much to explain in words ... please check the table of contents below to get an idea of the topics covered.
