Unlike other books on Final Cut Pro—which assume some previous digital video knowledge—Beginner's Final Cut Pro: Learn to Edit Digital Video shows students that they don't have to be an expert to get good results with professional-quality video editing software. Written in an approachable, accessible, and personable style, it walks students through the basics of editing in Final Cut Pro and demystifies the hard-won secrets of a professional video editor. Along the way, students practice their skills by editing and assembling numerous video clips included with a companion DVD.
This book moves beyond the basics of "pushing the buttons";
explaining the most efficient and effective ways of using Xpress
Pro to tell the story. Readers develop a working knowledge of the
application with lessons and tutorials that cover every essential
method and technique. An excellent resource for students and
professional editors new to Xpress Pro, this book and DVD combo
provides valuable hands-on practice with an extended example that
demonstrates the edit of an entire sequence. Project media and
plug-ins are provided on the companion DVD.
Written in a Cookbook style, it's packed with logically-sequenced recipes to gain deeper understanding of the software. Each recipe contains step-by-step instructions followed by analysis of what was done in each task and other useful information. The book is designed so that you can read it chapter by chapter, or you can look at the list of recipes and refer to them in no particular order. If you are new to editing with Avid, this book will help you get the most out of Avid Media Composer right from the start. Even if you are intermediately experienced with Avid, you will discover new methods and gain a deeper understanding to take your Avid experience to the next level, with greater confidence.

Thanks to the digital revolution, film artists now have a spectacular array of powerful, new, inexpensive tools for creative expression through digital film. The once powerful studios can no longer stifle an artist's creativity. With the power of the Internet, film artists are finding once unimaginable ways to distribute their creations worldwide. "DV Filmmaking: From Start to Finish" covers all aspects of the new digital video frontier, for amateurs and professionals alike-from the nuts and bolts of timecode and aspect ratio; to framing, lighting, and sound recording; as well as editing, special effects creation, and distribution. The book is written for filmmakers at varying experience levels - taking an integrated approach to media production, and emphasizing the ways different aspects of the process work together to create a vital work of digital art: hands-on detailed examination of the artistic aspects of film and video production; extensive examples use comprehensive step-by-step exercises for advanced editing techniques; scenes from successful films illustrate techniques used by professionals; includes a collection of professionally shot video clips, so the user can read and follow along with sets of structured exercises; develops a highly refined repertoire of advanced skills in editing, effects creation, title design, and more; inspires advanced readers to work with the included clips on their own and experiment with new ideas; written for both Mac and PC users and covers advanced uses of both Final Cut Pro and Adobe After Effects.

Appendices 133 A Mathematical Results 133 A.1 Singularities of the Displacement Error Covariance Matrix 133 A.2 A Class of Matrices and their Eigenvalues 134 A.3 Inverse of the Power Spectral Density Matrix 134 A.4 Power Spectral Density of a Frame 136 Glossary 137 References 141 Index 159 Preface This book aims to capture recent advances in motion compensation for - ficient video compression. It investigates linearly combined motion comp- sated signals and generalizes the well known superposition for bidirectional prediction in B-pictures. The number of superimposed signals and the sel- tion of reference pictures will be important aspects of the discussion. The application oriented part of the book employs this concept to the well known ITU-T Recommendation H.263 and continues with the improvements by superimposed motion-compensated signals for the emerging ITU-T R- ommendation H.264 and ISO/IEC MPEG-4 (Part 10). In addition, it discusses a new approach for wavelet-based video coding. This technology is currently investigated by MPEG to develop a new video compression standard for the mid-term future.
Bursting with new features, Apple's iMovie '09 is vastly more usable and complete than iMovie '08 - amazing right out of the box. But the box doesn't include a good user's guide, so learning these applications is another matter.

You get crystal-clear, jargon-free explanations of iMovie's new video effects, slow & fast motion, advanced drag & drop, video stabilization, and more. Author and "New York Times" tech columnist David Pogue uses an objective lens to scrutinize every step of process, including how to: organize your videos just like your photos, and precisely edit with ease; work on multiple iMovie projects at once and drag & drop clips among them; integrate with other iLife programs to use songs, photos, and an original sound track; output your creation to a blog, its own web page, or as a video podcast with iWeb; and understand basic film techniques to improve the quality of the video you bring to iMovie. From choosing and using a digital camcorder to burning the finished work onto DVDs, posting it online, or creating versions for iPod and iPhone, "iMovie '09 & iDVD: The Missing Manual" helps you zoom right in on the details.
