This is the 3rd book I have used to learn Adobe Premier 2 and it is far and away the best. the trick is to follow exercises religiously and try for yoursef with your own project. It was a fantastic aid and accelerated my knowledge immensely. Further I emailed Jeff Schell the Authour and had immediate email support. Thanks Jeff keep up the good work.
This is a training manual of the highest order. Adobe could well take a leaf out of Jeff Schell's book and make their own manual easier to read. This one takes you by the hand, and with the help of the enclosed DVD it really does what it says on the label - Hands On Training. Excellent book, very much recommended for all stages of learning Premiere Pro 2.
This book is aimed at teaching you the basics of premiere pro with some advanced techniques thrown in. It is written in a witty and non-patronising style aimed at producing an organised work flow.
Throughout the book you work on the same project, a promotional film for a holiday resort. All the video, audio and graphics are on the included DVD. You start with very basic stuff such as importing and arranging clips and end up doing colour correction and animated effects. Everything you need to create your own projects is here - you just have to adapt what you have learnt.
I seriously cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is clear, concise and interesting and most of all is really helpful in getting to grips with premiere pro.
