5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent, short intro to complex software 16 Jun 2009
By NickG VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Like many people, I stepped up to Final Cur from iMovie, and was immediately swamped. I've tried several books/websites, and this is the best introduction by far. It starts with some essential explanation of all the setup decisions you have to understand with FC, and moves through the logic of basic editing to some of the more advanced features. It won't make you an expert, but you'll end up with a good understanding of the underlying principles of editing in FC and some of its associated applications, which means you'll be able to branch out with confidence that you understand how things work under the surface.

I personally much prefer this style to the step-by-step approach of other books, which tend to leave me feeling I know how to performa certain specific tasks, but without necessarily understanding how and why they wrk the way they do.

Its other great benefit is it's quite short - not a brick.

There are some irritating typos but they don't cause any damage, so I'm giving it five stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Final Cut Pro users.... you need this book!! 18 Oct 2008
By Michael Jensen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Final Cut Pro Portable Genius

There couldn't have been better timing! I installed a new Final Cut Pro suite just in time for "Final Cut Pro Portable Genius" to be available. What a life saver this handbook has been, it never leaves my side while I'm editing. I have always considered myself to be more of an artist than an engineer or a computer genius. "Final Cut Pro Portable Genius" takes the guess work out of setting preferences that can critically maximize Final Cut Pro's capability and increase my ability to create an awesome product. The full color diagrams and screen shots throughout the book are easy to follow, and incorporate steps to create any result I can imagine. I am preparing to do my first major project using Final Cut Pro and I am so glad I have "Final Cut Pro Portable Genius"as a reference as I go forward. Help menus are great, but "Final Cut Pro Portable Genius" will be a critical part of my success as a Final Cut Pro editor.

Thank you Genius DV!

5.0 out of 5 stars What you need to know when you need to know it 1 Dec 2008
By Wayne Korbl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Having taken classes from John Lynn and Genius DV, I knew the book would be good. And it did not disappoint. You can easily search for the particular task you need to complete and it is presented step-by-step. It remains right next to my editing station unless someone "borrows" it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Final Cut Pro Portable Genius 19 Jun 2009
By Michael Alexander - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In Final Cut Pro Portable Genius, John Lynn describes what can be an overwhelming software tool in an organized and easy-to-understand manner. The beautiful and helpful and colorful screen shots and overall quality of the publication itself is "very Apple," though Mr. Lynn has his own private digital media training company and is not part of the Apple enterprise. As a former business owner with a passion for digital media of all types and forms, I highly recommend this helpful book. It is a great read and each section is helpful by itself so one does not feel the need to finish the book in one sitting. Well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Final Cut book in the market 15 Jun 2009
By Jose A. Negron Aponte - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Having taken classes from John Lynn I can personally say, this is EXACTLY what a noob like me needed in this situation. The book is soo well written any one can use it. a Noob (like me) can pick it up and start learning with no hesitation or a pro can use it the same book as a reference guide in any job they might be doing.
I congratulate and Thank John Lynn for taking time out of his very busy schedule to put together a book like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 14 April 2009
By Debra L. Rein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Amazing book. This is one of the best books I have used in a while. It is written in a way that you can understand. I am a high school teacher and this book has been so helpful. I keep it by my computer to reference. I probably should get a couple more because I am always finding it by another computer, the kids really like it. This has helped us with all the components of Final Cut Studio. Great book for beginnings to pros. Way to go John Lynn.
