Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
If you're serious about desktop digital video, what you want is Adobe Premiere 6 -- if you can handle its power and complexity. Now, there's a book that demystifies just about every nook and cranny of DV, as it walks you through just about everything Premiere can do.

The book is Premiere 6 for Macintosh & Windows Visual QuickStart Guide. If you're familiar with the series, you know what to expect: a clean, open layout, with most tasks presented on one or two pages; lots of well-annotated screen captures; and just enough explanation.

Anthony Bolante is the ideal author for this book: he's taught video editing to graduate and undergraduate students using both Premiere and far pricier packages. He takes this book beyond pure "step-by-step," sharing insights into DV workflow and plenty of tips on the program's actual real-world behavior (for example, previews using the QuickTime codec render eight times as fast as those using the program's default Cinepak compressor).

Bolante covers every stage of the DV project, from importing and managing clips to editing them; creating a program; using the Timeline; trimming, transitions, mixing audio, adding effects, and building titles. There's a detailed chapter on superimposing clips in which you'll learn how to fade one image into another, blend images together, and make parts of image transparent, using keys. Especially helpful for beginners, the book offers solid coverage of capturing video -- from whatever source.

At 560 pages, this book's bigger than your typical Visual QuickStart Guide (though the price isn't). Some of the extra pages are dedicated to a detailed review of Premiere's video and audio settings, thus doubling as a basic primer on DV fundamentals: frame rates, frame sizes, compression, audio quality, and their impact on your finished program.

Directions for editing short- and long-format movies for video and the Web are included. Bolante is an editor and author. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From The Critics
With its hundreds of screen shots clearly illustrated essential tasks, Premiere 6 For Macintosh & Window is one of the most "user friendly" how-to manuals that anyone could hope for in learning to use Premiere 6 whether on a Macintosh or a Windows operating system. Antony Bolante's text is clear, concise, and ideal for quickly coming up to speed on editing short- and long-formate movies for video and the Web, as well as quickly creating special effects and precision editing. One of the latest in the Peachpit Press "Visual Quckstart Guide" series, Premiere 6 For Macintosh & Window is very highly recommended and is enhanced further with such invaluable and instructive features as information for direct support of IEEE 1394; web-optimized export options; program markers; audio mixer; and enhanced effects.

    DO NOT BUY

    CONFUSING, NOT HELPFUL, ... If you want to learn how to use Adobe Permiere, DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK. It is horrible, confusing, and doesn't make ANY SENSE AT ALL.... The authors spend page after page with laundry list of features, but do not explain how to use any of the functions. WORTHLESS
