Adobe Premiere Elements For Dummies offers these same users not only a guide through all the how-to steps of using the software, but also a valuable reference on how to best apply the tools to a great video project.

Author Keith Underdahl, also author of Adobe Premiere Pro For Dummies, is an experienced video editor who understands what new Premiere users need to know and how to best explain the topics. In this book, Keith describes:

  • Best practices for shooting quality video
  • Picking the clips you want to keep and getting them into your computer
  • How to use Premiere Elements’ editing tools to add an opening credits page, transitions between clips, sound, music, and ending credits.
  • Adding special effects using only computer trickery
  • Putting your finished project on a DVD, videotape, or the Internet

Covering more ground than the typical expanded users manuals you find in bookstores, Adobe Premiere Elements For Dummies is the book you need to get you through your first video-editing project as well as to return to whenever you hit rough spots and need instant help.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Until now, to make a real movie with your digital camcorder and Windows XP, you basically had two choices. Stick with the underpowered Windows Movie Maker, or spend a fortune on a tool like Adobe Premiere. Now, $100 buys you the amazing Premiere Elements. Drop a few bucks more on Adobe Premiere Elements for Dummies, and you’re all set.

Premiere Elements brings together the digital video features non-professionals need most, and makes them easier to use. This book takes you the rest of the way, covering every step from choosing equipment through burning DVDs. It’s all explained in simple “no-experience-necessary” English: video capture; trims and edits; using the Timeline; fixing problem video; transitions, effects, titles, and sound; exporting to tape or Web; and much more. Get out your camcorder, you’re about to have a blast. Bill Camarda, from the January 2005 Read Only
