Overview

These days, nobody really wants to learn everything there is to know about shooting, editing, and authoring digital movies. And even if you did, who has the time to endlessly tinker and play with it until you figure everything out?

You just want a book that will quickly show you how to get things done ¿ things that aren¿t already covered in the docs that came with your digital camera or software, and things you can¿t just figure out on your own.

Digital Video in a Snap is designed specifically for today¿s computer user:

  • Somebody who is new to digital video editing and authoring, but not new to computers.
  • Somebody who doesn¿t have time for long-winded, mind-numbing explanations ¿ and certainly no time or patience for bad jokes.

Organized into a series of well-organized, bite-sized, quickly accomplished tasks, this book lets the reader zero right in on the one particular task he or she wants to accomplish, quickly figure out what to do, do it, and then get back to work.
