Editing with Final Cut Pro 4: An Intermediate Guide to Setup and Editing Workflow
Whether you've mastered the basics of Final Cut Pro and want to take your skills to the next level, or if you're a video editor new to Final Cut Pro and looking to put your own system together, this book is for you. Written by "chawla," a Final Cut Pro guru and veteran moderator on 2-Pop/Creative Cow, this book covers the interface basics and workflow but goes beyond to address intermediate techniques and timesaving tips for professional results. Roberts does not assume you have an IT staff on hand and therefore goes into crucial issues of set up, configuration, consumer advice on hardware purchasing, and troubleshooting. Equally valuable is coverage of working with formats such as standard definition, uncompressed, and FireWire DV.
* An intermediate-level book designed to meet the needs of editors coming from other editing systems
as well as newer Final Cut Pro editors ready to take the next step in editing technique and in hardware upgrade
