I have no doubt that Diannah Morgan knows her stuff. Ms. Morgan has the experience and the chops to be listed as an "expert". As I started exploring the book, I was rather impressed. I REALLY wanted to like this book. However, the longer I lived with the book, the more I longed for the opportunity to try out some of the "tips". Unfortunately, there are a couple of problems. The first is, there aren't any "tips", per se. The book is another presentation of the help file that comes with FCP or the PDF manual for LiveType. There is nothing in the book that made me go, "Ahh, so that's the way to do it".
And even if you wanted to try out some of the examples, there is nothing included with the book to allow you to do that. It would have been nice to have a DVD or CD ROM containing the referenced clips and video. That way, the prospective student can follow along with the exercises. As it is, the reader is doing nothing more than watching over Ms. Morgan's shoulder, while just getting a look at her impressive creative portfolio. While she is a very capable communicator, reading her book is like standing outside the window of the Apple Store and watching someone else edit with FCP.
As is typical with other CMP books, the quality of the printing and layout is first-rate. You'd think, however, that with a cover price of $44.95 for less than 200 pages, including the index, there'd be a little profit wiggle-room for some clips and graphics.
I hope the publishers will rethink the packaging for this book and include some clips and graphics for the examples in the second edition. If you're looking for an instructional tome that will help you get that edge on the competition, this isn't it.
Great book for those newly finding their way into films and the myrid ways in which they can be titled. Really loved the "blowing up" of the Hollywood sign as a possibility for a fun beginning to a piece. I liked this book alot.
