Demonstrating the most efficient and effective ways of using Premiere, this book goes far beyond the basics of simply operating the software. Readers develop a working knowledge of the application with lessons and tutorials that cover every essential method and technique, including importing, exporting, effects, transitions, system requirements, and interactions with other Adobe applications. The companion CDROM enables the user to view and practice the edit of an entire sequence, from storyboarding through the final render.
