Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This beginning- to intermediate-level guide provides a solid foundation to a leading digital video editing application. The accompanying CD alone is worth the price, as it includes step-by-step video lessons (complete with instructor) on capturing, editing, and exporting video in a variety of formats. Although the CD has fairly strenuous system requirements, those able to run Premiere 6 effectively should have no trouble. Useful appendixes listing keyboard shortcuts and web resources round out the content. Recommended for all libraries. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
