3.0 out of 5 stars Good But . . . 29 Sep 2010
By Douglas H. Hunter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
First, using this book you will be able to pass the color certification test with no problem and since that is the point of this book it serves its purpose well. That being said, there is a way in which this book is a big step backwards compared to the previous book. In this book there is an emphasis on using the color correct 3-way filter in FCP for doing tasks such as scene continuity work. As a post production professional its difficult to imagine why one would choose to do this in FCP when it risks confusing the work flow, the grade management tools provided in Color are so robust, and the luma controls are more refined. So despite everything that is good and right about this book, it spends considerable time advocating a work flow that is far from ideal and that you won't / shouldn't use on real projects. I think its fine to include information about the color correction filters in FCP but not as a central element in the workflow. Other than that this is a really good book and will help new users get up to speed with Color.

Could not install anything off of this DVD. I'm sure the book is fine but no luck with the DVD. Maybe it won't run on LION. Dumb.
