The latest On The Spot book from CMP Books titled Broadcast Graphics, their very informative and short book of the hottest tips, was very informative with great nuggets of useful information. Not too much in any one gulp yet still gives you the ¿aha¿ factor. This book focuses mostly on Photoshop and After Effects in the broadcast arena (hence the title) and they even say this book is for those in television. However, the book also delves into keying, Illustrator, and script automation ¿ so there¿s a little something for everyone. Let¿s face it, as a filmmaker you need to have a solid understanding of just about every facet of production and post-production and this book, with it¿s quick tips, can be helpful in a pinch. It¿s another arsenal in your toolbox. I only wish they had a quick index listing their tricks so when I¿m really in a pinch I don¿t have to search thru the book trying to remember what chapter I saw the helpful hint. All in all, a great productivity time saver and quick read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
