Product Description

From the Back Cover

The scalability, performance and Emmy Award-winning workflow of Final Cut Pro 5 make it the first choice of professional editors everywhere. For those clamoring to get in on the action, this best-selling volume uses a series of class-length lessons designed to provide a strong foundation in all aspects of the digital video editing powerhouse. Readers follow the step-by-step instructions to complete the book's hands-on exercises, using the project files on the accompanying DVD. Master teacher Diana Weynand covers everything from basic editing skills to complex topics such as creating transitions and motion effects, real-time color correcting, titling techniques, and more. Previously published as Final Cut Pro HD, this revision has been updated to cover all of Final Cut Pro 5's new features, including higher quality effects, RT Extreme with Dynamic RT, editing multi-camera projects, closer integration with Apple's other creative tools and more.

Format: Paperback
This book is writen by people who not only are the experts in FCP5 but also understand how quality learning should be structured. The book is split into chapters which provide a step by step instructions on the tasks set out. But what is most important it reassesses what you have learned at the end of each chapter. In addition it includes a world class footatge which you edit when going through the chapters.
This book is suitable both for beginners and and advanced users.

Format: Paperback
Well laid out and easy to follow a quality publication. Having moved up from Final Cut Express perhaps it was easier for me to get my head around but I am sure a new user will find this a must have. So impressed that I am now going to obtain Soundtrack Pro from the same publisher.

couldn't wait to get cracking with this book. Wanted to do a FCP course but had no time, so the last few nights I have worked through the book. Watch out Spielberg!

Excellent layout, very easy to follow. Real footage included on the DVD for you to edit (and a final version for you to compare your work with).

Have already ordered the next 2 in the series. Would like to take the exams now!

Highly recommended

The footage is great and the book gets you to repeat exercises and moves again and again until it sinks in. However, I have found several instances where the information and guidelines don't match what actually happens, so that you end up second-guessing the advice given and finding your own workarounds to follow the steps. Surprised that no other reviews have pointed this out.
