I've been editing with Premiere Pro on and off for a few years. I am, however, very much an amateur in the sense that I don't spend a lot of time editing. I use it just every once and a while for little projects, and the occasional (amateur) short documentary subject. That means I do forget things, and am not as efficient as I might be. I know what kinds of things can be done, but often need to look up exactly how online.

So I was excited to work through this book, in the hopes that it would help me build new skills. After reading it through, I can say I learned a few things, but most of it I already knew as a result of working through some introductory tutorials when I first got started and then reading tips on forums. Another thing worth knowing - that isn't entirely clear from the product page - is that this is really aimed at CS5.5 and CS6, as there is not even a mention here about Creative Cloud or any of the new features that come with its latest upgrades. That's okay with me, since I'm sticking with CS6 for now anyways, and most of the information will be the same, but those really wanting to get up to speed might do better to look online (or elsewhere) for tutorials and guides. I do that, too, but I like having a reference I can put my hands on, and this one's not bad. An better book, in my opinion, is Richard Harrington's An Editor's Guide to Adobe Premiere Pro.

I'm a junior in college. I've taken classes, watched tutorials and read more than a few books on premiere. This book is incredible. I couldn't put it down, every page holds invaluable information. If you are serious about editing do yourself a favor and buy this book. Every page is packed with tips that have already saved me hours of frustration by making my workflow significantly more efficient. Buy this book. You won't regret it, I promise.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
If you are looking for an in depth, how to get started book, stop reading this review, go back to the Amazon search panel and do another search. This is NOT the book for beginners. Well, not beginning beginers.

This book is designed with the assumption that you know how to get around Premiere Pro already. Sure, it gives tips on how to build your workflow and name files/folders, but it does NOT give you in depth analysis on how to use certain functions or features. It does teach you what some of the things in menus and preferences means, but this doesn't help the beginner do anything more than set the software up to work optimally within their unknown workflow.

In terms of the way this book is written, I am accustomed to books about Adobe products saying "press this for the Mac, this for PC." This book almost universally assumes everyone is using the Mac. If you need to know the commands or equivalent functions on a Windows based PC, then this may not be the book for you. If you are comfortable with being provided an afterthought on OS equivalent functions, say you already know all about your Windows computer, then it's probably not a big deal. This is the case for me, and I don't judge or drop stars because the book doesn't put me in the limelight. MOST professionals ARE using Macs, so this makes sense to be written this way.

The tips themselves range from simple setup recommendations (how to name a project, what format to edit in based on the final target format, etc) to time code utilization to ADR tool usage. Everything is designed to help make you more efficient or adjust your workflow to become more efficient.

The book is written in a semi-linear fashion, but no chapter REALLY demands you read any of the previous chapters.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm one of the photograhers that got bitten by the video bug in September 2008 when Canon announced the 5D Mark II and I saw the Reverie short that showed the amazing video. Within a month I bought the CS4 Production Premium Suite and have upgraded to each version ever since. Point is, I've learned the basics of creating a movie in Premiere (plus using the other apps such as Media Encoder, Audition, etc). All of this time I have wanted to take some form of classes that showed how the pros do their workflow in a production using these software tools. This book is a huge step in that direction, Larry Jordan covers the workflow soup-to-nuts while showing along the way the techniques I've been wanting to know. It's not really just a "Tips & Tricks" book. He covers:

-Naming files, Scratch Disk setup, RAID arrays and disk access
-Video Formats, where they came from, why we have them. He even explains field dominance in such a clear way.
-He gets into storyboarding and using Adobe Story & Prelude
-Great chapter on preferences and setting up your project
-BIG chapter on Timeline editing technique (I didn't know about Auto KeyFrames!), and audio editing in Audition as well. In fact, that's a huge chapter on its own and SO important
-And he covers titling and transitions, not just "here's how you toss it on your clip in the timeline", but extensive instruction on making them work in timing, etc.
-He finished up with Adobe Media Encoder, and even after using THAT for 5 years, I saw him do some techniques I hadn't thought of.

Absolute desert island book if you produce video or even just audio for video.
