Format: Paperback
For someone who comes from a background in television commercials, Gary's book has proven to be nothing short of an elemental guide to performing many of the tasks we'd commission a film editor to do, all digitally, and all within the program we've used for print ads! "Retouching Motion Pictures" demonstrated to me the how-tos I needed to learn to get both analog and digital footage into my computer, how to trim out-takes, to smooth out the pacing and timing of cuts, and even how to perform compositing work. It's a highly technical book that manages to stay focused on what makes motion pictures so captivating--it's all about editing to better tell a story.

Gary's tone is one of confidence in his craft with a generous open spirit, sitting right beside you, talking to you like an adult, and his analogies truly helped me understand and tie together all the disparate issues surrounding digital video. I originally bought his book to learn how to archive and restore home movies, but after the first 100 pages, this guy had me hooked on more ambitious things such as green-screening and special effects you evidently can create using Photoshop on a personal computer. The experience (yes, it's a total immersion head trip following the tutorials) has left me with the conviction that Madison Avenue and Hollywood are just locations; you can produce slick, professional, finished work right in your den!

If you're more of a content creator than a spectator, get this book, get out a lot of sticky notes, and completely rock with this key to unlocking the video potential in Photoshop.

Je trouve ce très regrettable d'avoir acheter ce livre!
Je ne comprends pas assez l'anglais mais je me débrouille bien
En techniques photo... mais sur le site amazon.com il n'explique pas en détalle
Donc le livre mais d'aucune utilité.
Les livres qu'il vende. Mais le service est bon.
