Adobe After Effects CC Visual Effects and Compositing Studio Techniques
Adobe After Effects CC Visual Effects and Compositing Studio Techniques
by Mark Christiansen
Edition: Paperback
Price: 31.70

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent but not a primer for AE, 10 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As others have commented this is not for the beginner and I have to say some of went above my current knowledge. However, with the associated files, I think I will get the areas I was a bit puzzled by later. But I have dipped in and out of this, and am very impressed. This is not a rehash of all the same old effects, or walkthroughs. Rather, it explains the next stage - how to composite well, the problems and workarounds for e.g keying.
Overall an excellent book, but if you're just starting out - try the Meyer book or online training.
If you want to suddenly get some of the more advanced topics, this is the best book I've seen and there were quite a few "eureka" moments reading it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very insightful, 19 Jan 2013
This is a really readable and insightful guide with plenty of lightbulb moments. I have really gained a lot from it both practically and from the philosophical position

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad for an Intro, 30 Jan 2006
This book was suprisingly good, is quite cheap and covers most of the initial things that can prove daunting if you have never used Flash before. Don't expect too much of it. It takes an example site for a company, and has some simple animations buttons and links but does it in a simple but compelling way. I had foundered a bit with another more detailed text and was getting a bit frustrated but this got me started and now the bigger text seems OK.


Advanced Transact-SQL for SQL Server 2000
Advanced Transact-SQL for SQL Server 2000
by Itzik Ben-Gan
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent: I learned a lot from the word go, 12 Mar 2004
I took a gamble on ordering this one. I wanted a book which was solely SQL and not page on page of screenshots, but had never seen it in a bookshop.
I was particularly interested in hierarchy queries and the chapter on this was brief but very informative. I tend to dip in but I think it is the best SQL Server 2000 book I own.
It does not tell you how to use SQL Server but concentrates on problem solving.
I disagree with the other reviewer, and I think it is much better than the Books Online which I find hard to sift through

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 12 Mar 2004
After all the hype about Bowling for Columbine, Oscars etc, I decided to buy this and was quite disappointed by the ranting style of the narrative.
Much better in a similar vein are "Why do people hate America" and " The Twilight of American Culture" although they are more generic and perhaps at times too high brow.
It is clear that the author has a little too high opinion of his own views at times, and this started to annoy very early on.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good although Looks a little Dated, 12 Mar 2004
This is quite a good dictionary and the albeit simple games are quite good to build up vocabulary and you can make up your own tests as well as random words.
The ability to search the database is a little basic and I think it could easily be improved in future versions.
However, it is quite good but if all you want is a dictionary, the pop up ones are better (e.g PONS, Oxford Duden)
