Adobe Premiere 5.0: Classroom in a Book
Use the Amazon App to scan ISBNs and compare prices.
If you've set out to master Premiere 5 and don't know where to begin, get this thorough, well-illustrated book. It guides you through everything from basic interfaces to the process of assembling complex movies, and features step-by-step instruction and project files on an included CD-ROM. Each chapter also includes review questions and answers as well as an "exploring on your own" section.
First you get a tour of the Premiere interface. You start a project, add clips and audio, and edit and export the video. You also explore concepts central to digital video editing, such as frame size, resolution, video data compression, video capture, transparency, superimposing, audio, and output. Next, you learn basic editing techniques such as importing clips, working with the Timeline and the Source view, previewing and fine-tuning your work, and applying transitions. You go on to use audio clips, learn about three-point and four-point editing, work with clip linking, and use the Extract, Lift, Paste Custom, Slip, and Trim functions. Later lessons teach you how to create titles, superimpose clips, add motion, apply audio and video filters, and create subclips and virtual clips. --Kathleen Caster
From Library Journal
Both of these Adobe books are excellent self-paced training guides; they would also make excellent in-class texts for anyone teaching these tools. Less well-known than Photoshop, Premier allows the manipulation and editing of multimedia, including video, animation, and static graphics. The CD-ROMs include all examples and lesson files, but you will need your own copies of the programs actually to use the lessons. The Photoshop book includes coverage of Adobe's new product for web graphics, ImageReady, and given Photoshop's broad popularity, it belongs in most collections. Premier is for larger collections.
