Best book on editing I've come across,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Apple Pro Training Series: The Craft of Editing with Final Cut Pro (Paperback)
I've been looking for a book like this for years. I own a lot of books on editing and this one's clearly the best. Most books will either tell you how to use editing programs e.g. "Press the B key for the blade tool", or are dry and academic, going into editing theory without any examples.
This book is a wonderful mix between the two: you're taught how to cut, while at the same time told why, with loads of examples along the way. Since reading it I watch films in a new way, thinking, "Oh, I can see why you did that."
That said, it's not for total beginners. If you've never used final cut before I'd recommend Diana Weynand's Final Cut Pro 6.
