One minute Zed Saeed's helping to show off new Final Cut Pro film workstations at the L.A. Final Cut Pro User Group. Next minute, he's demoing Final Cut Pro 2 to an audience of digital media experts down in Soho. Where he found time to write Macworld Final Cut Pro 2 Bible, we're not sure -- but we're glad he did.
If you're new to the program, Chapter 1's quickstart takes you right into editing -- giving you an immediate taste of what Final Cut Pro 2 has to offer. You'll master the program's enhanced user interface, and take advantage of its significant workflow enhancements.
There's a full chapter on sound, ranging from organizing audio tracks to choosing sampling rates to handling 0dB analog reference tones correctly. From start to finish, the book's full of tips (for example: when to trim in the Timeline, when to use the Viewer, when to use the Trim Edit window). You'll find detailed coverage of Firewire, QuickTime, and other complementary DV technologies, as well as practical guidance on building your high-performance digital video workstation (storage, video, and so forth).
With this book, you can master real-time editing -- in real time. (Bill Camarda)
