Overview

As an aspiring videographer, one of the most exciting decisions you can make is to upgrade from a standard camcorder to digital video. Sophisticated software programs enable you to edit your work creatively and produce professional-quality video — without spending a fortune!

Explore all phases of digital video, from recording and shooting to editing and distribution, with Digital Video For Dummies. In no time, you can turn your digital camcorder and personal computer into a high-tech video studio. Author Martin Doucette has broken down the process in clear steps; easy-to-follow instructions take you from understanding how digital video works to experimenting with advanced editing techniques: Take a look at light and sound, and see how your digital camcorder's lens and electronic features reproduce these elements with astounding accuracy. Read about the basics of video production planning and scene direction. See how your computer's operating system can be your best friend throughout the editing process. Investigate distribution options for your completed video: lay it on a CD, upload it to the Web, or transfer it to a tape. Turn ordinary photos and videos into extraordinary three-dimensional presentations. Visit Web sites full of valuable resources, tips, and information.

The enclosed CD-ROM introduces you to popular graphics software, such as Adobe Illustrator 8.0, Adobe Premiere 5.0, Adobe After Effects 4.0, and Adobe Photoshop 5.0. The CD-ROM also offers instructional examples, video samples, ready-to-use media clips, and more!
