Written for beginning and experienced filmmakers and video producers, this book is a complete guide to the concepts and tools of digital non-linear editing. The hands-on guidelines explain the concepts of editing and teach filmmakers working in postproduction how to use their traditional editing skills with new digital technology.

Using a series of editing tutorials and raw footage of actual productions, readers work through every step of the editing process from digitizing and structuring, to adding titles and compositing. These hands-on tutorials use popular editing tools including Speed Razor, Final Cut Pro, Avid Products, Pro tools, After Effects, and Ultimate; demos of many of these products are found on the companion CD-ROM and DVD-ROM.
