The Focal Easy Guide to Premiere Pro by Tim Kolb is just that ¿ easy. As a longtime Premiere (and now Premiere Pro) user, I found it very easy (there¿s that word again) to search through the book and find references to tools or procedures that needed ¿refreshing¿ in my mind. Even if you use Premiere Pro everyday, you don¿t use every tool or technique on every project, so the help file and good reference books like this are essential when deadlines are looming or you are just experimenting with new ways to jazz up your videos. The descriptions are easier to follow and are better organized than the online help included with the program. They often go well beyond the information that Adobe includes in the help files. Aiding me in my searches (and for new users, making Premiere Pro easier to understand) are the book¿s graphics. The graphics used for the screenshots in this book are, in a word, spectacular. They are crisp, clear and large enough so that even a casual viewing conveys lots of information immediately. They are what sets this book apart from so many other ¿getting started¿ books. I really wish that I had had this book available when I was first learning Premiere; it would have saved me lots of time and lots of bumps from banging my head against the wall.Was this review helpful?
