    Great book about Studio 9 and video editing...

    To say that this book covers Studio 9 would be an understatement. It explains everything from the buttons on your screen, right up to expert effects such `split edits¿ which will give your videos that professional feel. This book has some good background on video camera features and how to make the most of them (for example, do you know why you shouldn¿t use digital zoom?). It also explains a handful of basic but effective techniques used to improve your shot composition and produce more ¿watchable¿ videos. I also liked how this book starts off simple, and then adds detail to show you how to use Studio 9 to turn your poor-to-average video into something professional. The step-by-step instructions to take you from recording your video, through capturing, enhancing and editing, to creating the final product. This book explains how to get the most out of plug-ins, transitions, titles, DVD menus, and all those audio features and special effects. But what really impressed me was the inclusion of a Troubleshooting chapter. Not many books tell you how to minimize problems which are likely to plague your system when you try to run a program as demanding as a nonlinear video editor. It explains things such as how to optimize your system for best capture performance, avoid dropped frames, and where to look for further assistance. This book really is a good investment!
