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
