And now I own a copy of Steve Grisetti's Guide to Photoshop Elements & Premiere Elements 7. I bought Steve's book (and I call him Steve because I've communicated with him online and speaking as a former brick and mortar bookstore operator who has met many authors, Steve is hands down one of the friendliest and most down to earth authors I've met) primarily because of difficulties I kept running into using Premiere 7 to edit video shot on high definition camcorders, problems that were not addressed in Adobe's "Official Training Workbook."
What I want and need when it comes to help with video editing, is a lot of hand holding and plain English. I'm not a computer geek. I'm a late middle aged man who could never figure out how to program a VCR or even set the clock on one back when VCR's were in vogue, and I sure as heck can't figure out without a lot of easy-to-comprehend help how to use any but the most elementary features of Premiere.
When I recently purchased a green screen (from an online source recommended by Steve at the Muvipix site), I figured it would take me several days of trial and error experimentation to figure out how to edit green screen video in Premiere. But with Steve's book in hand, it literally took me under 5 minutes.Read more ›
At my in-experienced level I had hoped for something along the lines of a step by step guide to use the organizer suggesting how to import the photographs and categorize them, then moving forward to editing in the same simplistic way. I needed to be lead toward the goal, perhaps I needed a "Dummies" guide. This book is more of a reference guide.
The other problem is with the illustrations, they are small, in black and white and almost impossible to see. A manual dealing predominantly in color needs illustrations to match. I am aware that it would be cost prohibitive to print a full color manual, but having them posted on a web site would have been a good idea, and it that way reading the manual and seeing the diagram, albeit in a different place would have added considerably to the experience.
Another alternative would be an included CD.
