    Quick and Easy

    As a college student who only had one semester to learn Final Cut Pro, this book was
    very useful for quick reference. It includes all kinds of tips neatly organized and simply
    explained. When I had a question, I simply looked up the topic in the chapters in the table
    of contents or in the index. The tips are easy to understand and straight to the point. They
    are usually explained in a page or less with helpful illustrations. This is also a great user
    manual for people who want to know more than the basics. It presents shortcuts and tips
    to make you work faster. As I read the book in order, I discovered how much I didn't
    know!
    The first chapter shows how to manage your system with Final Cut Pro with tips on
    organizing files, backing up, settings and preferences. The next chapter was very helpful
    to me because it clearly explained technical settings that can make or break your project
    such as dropped frame errors, how to avoid interlacing problems, the different types of
    ProRes, different transfer rates, bit depth, etc. The third chapter describes how Final Cut
    Pro ingests different types of media and gives pointers on which settings to use to import
    them. The most helpful tips for me where on reconnecting and converting media. Chapter
    four shows shortcuts and useful hints on working with the application. This is the
    essential chapter that can save you hours of work! Chapter five continues demonstrating
    tips to help you edit faster by presenting different trimming, toggling, sliding, and rolling
    techniques. The next chapter focuses on audio and explains the best ways to monitor
    audio as well as fast tips to mix it all. Chapter seven taught me a lot of transition and
    effect techniques. I discovered new transition and effects that I wasn't even aware of.
    And to wrap things up, the last chapter describes the last part of every project-exporting
    and outputting. This chapter describes how to export to various forms of media and gives
    you some last tips to improve your work.
    I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who is learning how to use Final Cut
    Pro or already knows the basics and would like to learn more.

    The Rise of Mudstar, Ch. 1 by H.L.C.

    Mudflower emerged from the nursery, her brown pelt shimmering in the sunlight. She looked quickly behind her, then sighed, exasperated. She ducked back into the nursery, then padded out, pushing a shivering, young she-kit in front of her. <p> "But I don't want to, Mamma!" The kit yelped. Her mother sighed and licked the top of the kit's head. <p> "You have to meet the clan eventually, Mudkit. Don't you want to become an apprentice someday?" Mudkit nodded frantically. "Then you must learn your way around camp." Mudkit grumbled. <p> " It's nice and warm in the nursery, and there's Lightningkit to talk to, and it's not OUTSIDE!" She looked around. "Besides, it's dump out here, anyway." Suddenly, a cat's yowl sounded through camp! <p>"OWL!"
