I have been using iMovie and Final Cut Express (FCE) for a number of years to make my home movies. I recently took the plunge and bought Final Cut Pro X and although the interface is very similar to iMovie I needed some help in finding the more advanced editing tools and techniques. In the past I've had experience of Apple's Classroom in a Book series which are good but they require time and dedication to work through the lessons. For Final Cut Pro X I had enough movie clips of my own to experiment with in both DV and HD format and I wanted an illustrated book that I could either browse right through in sequence or dip in and out of according to the task in hand. This Visual Quick Start Guide fits that requirement perfectly. The text is easy to follow and the colour illustrations are very clear. I bought the printed version instead of the Kindle version because of the colour illustrations. If you have some experience of editing movies I can recommend this book.

Started using it as a step-by-step guide for which it served as an excellent introduction to the software. As I progressed I started using it more as a reference book and dipping into chapters about specific functions of the programme. Any deficiencies I found were not in the book but in the programme itself. The book is particularly good in that it explains a bit about the thinking behind the software, which in the long run gives the user a more intuitive grasp and enables you to start guessing correctly how to do things and where to look for a specific function.

I purchased Final Cut Pro X Visual Quickstart Guide when I noticed that one of the authors was Lisa Brenneis. I have a guide by her for an earlier version of FCP, which I found indispensable. I have not been disappointed. The book under review covers all aspects of FCP X which are needed to become an efficient user. It is clearly written, well illustrated and easy to find what you are looking for.

Nicely presented book, with I suspect all the essential info in it. However, don't expect it to be a training manual of the sort that used to come hard copy as several books with Final Cut Studio itself in the past, as these contained a huge amount of theoretical and practical info, as well has telling you which button to press. the current volume misses so many opportunities to be better in this regard it's quite frustrating, and superficial. however, it will get you pressing the right buttons and off to a good start, in a clear manner.
Such a shame Apple dumbed down the whole Final Cut Studio package to FC Pro X, but there again it's incredible value for money.
