Sony Movie Studio is an extremely powerful program. This makes the learning curve pretty steep. Although I was managing to make useful DVD's and Blu-ray disks this book really made a huge difference. There is so much that is obscure and confusing that I was spending lots of time sorting through help files with mixed results. Reading this book has saved me lots of time and I now use the program with confidence. Grisetti's book is well written, well organized, loaded with heavily annotated graphics, and is full of explanations that make using this program much more productive. In my opinion this book is essential for anyone who is trying to use Sony Movie Studio. It is well worth the money. The same is true for the companion book by Grisetti on DVD Architect Studio. You really need them both. Grisetti's web site, Muvipix.com, is also loaded with lots of useful information, training videos, etc.

Just like Steve's other book, the Muvipix.com Guide to DVD Architect Studio 5.0, it is so clearly written and illustrated, that it forms a complete reference to the software. Even as an experienced user of the Sony software for several years, I found a lot to keep me interested. Well worth the purchase.

You really need this book to learn the function of the software, because the Sony software functions differently than most editors. The book needs substantially more detail and tips for the last two chapters, however, and suggest that you make notes in your copy of the book as to what works and what does not work well, when it comes time to render to a movie.

This is an excellent book. It describes all the elements of SVMS 12 Platinum in detail. It is better than the PDF manual that comes with the program.

Sony Movie Studio is a complex program with LOTS of little features that are very useful and very, very easy to miss. So the author really zooms in to show you how get all these complexities under your belt and feel comfortable with the program. And the program really zings when you know what you are doing. This is what this book accomplishes very, very well - to get you up and running easily with editing your footage. But the program has lots of very advanced features which are loaded with tons of sliders and settings and it would take maybe a 700 page book to give you a "Kelby" style explanation of each setting and how to use it. and this is only 266 (without the index). So if you want to nail all the nearly professional features it's back to Youtube and Googling. OK, I'll settle for that, because it changed Movie Studio from being too intimidating to being a good buddy.

Best reference manual for Sony Movie Studio. Since the Sony provided manual is weak at best, Steve Grisetti's book is the defacto manual for this product. excellent illustrations take you through all of the functionality. The software can be intimidating to the novice (like myself) but Steve's book gives me the confidence to get going with the software. Steve focuses on the beginner to intermediate functionality which is really helpful to someone starting out (like myself). There are some advanced concepts in the book too. If you want to get serious with this software this is a must have book.

This is easier to read than the help screen on the program, but you should use both, if you get the program. Book is cheaply bound, and cheaply printed. The pictures could look clearer. Text is fine though, and well laid out. Movie Studio Platinum 12 is a fine program, that saves money over some other video editors. There are or were no other choices, at the time of my purchase, for books on this program. I prefer, of course, purchasing a soft bound book, like this, over an expensive hardbound edition. To really understand video, and the technology, you need other books.
