Editorial Reviews

If you edit film or video, suddenly your options are virtually unlimited -- and they change almost daily. Amid the whirlwind, how do you define a solid workflow that cuts costs and adds flexibility without compromising your work? Dale Angell can show you.

In this book, Angell follows a real movie through post-production, using Final Cut Pro Studio, Cinema Tools, Pro Tools, and Adobe graphics applications. He walks through initial audio workflow, importing production audio, and syncing; editing picture to lock; finishing on both film and DV; titles; color timing and grading; even distribution.

Angell's been editing since 1974. It shows. When capturing audio, he knows all five scenarios you'll encounter and how to handle each. When discussing timeline editing, he knows the pitfalls, the solution, the right time to implement it -- and the exception to that rule. You quickly realize: There's not much about editing he doesn't know. Bill Camarda, from the December 2007 Read Only

From the Publisher
"Dale Angell's Filmmaker's Guide to Final Cut Pro Workflow is the postproduction supervisor's equivalent to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
It provides a babelfish to translate Geek speak into plain English. His wealth of experience in editing and sound makes the book an invaluable aid to navigating the plethora of HD codecs and finishing workflows now available to editors. Don't leave home without it."
—Lois Freeman-Fox, A.C.E.
