Book Description

22 April 1998
Nonlinear editing is the key topic in digital film and video today, and Digital Nonlinear Editing is the professional "bible" of the new era in post-production. The book details the procedural, creative, and technical fundamentals of editing moving images within a computer-based, interactive environment. Readers will understand not only what nonlinear editing is and how it works, but also how such systems can be used to achieve greater creative flexibility as well as cost and time savings.

The completely revised second edition chronicles a decade of digital nonlinear editing from home consumer editing applications to professional film and video editing systems. It provides in-depth explanations of digital video compression, storage, and networking; advances in digital video, computer processing power, the blurring of offline and online, digital storage advances, and desktop painting and compositing applications.

By far the most comprehensive book on the subject, Digital Nonlinear Editing details the growing role of compressed and digitized video in all types of communication. From the basics of traditional editing to the cutting edge of digital media, this is the book for every current and prospective communications professional.

Thomas A. Ohanian is a Chief Editor, Director of Product Design for Avid Technology in Massachusetts and a designer of the Avid Media Composer. During is tenure as a film and video editor he has worked on award-winning commercials, documentaries, industrials, television shows, and features. He is also the author with Michael Phillips of Digital Filmmaking (Focal Press).

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing and Overpriced for the Content 18 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
The title of this book should be The Technology Components of Digital Nonlinear Editing. Definitely not worth 49.95. If you know computers, don't buy it.

No one explains how NLE started and how the technology works better than Mr. Ohanian. It answers every question and answers questions you didn't even know you had to ask. Well written and well organized.
