By S. San Filipo on December 30, 2008
Format: Paperback
I found this book to be a bit pricey but regardless of that it is a cool read. The book will help you understand plates and (garbage) mattes. It has tutorials and reviews on several keying programs and NLEs. It also includes a disc with various sample blue and green screen files. I think this book is great for novices. Have fun.

Steve.
