I think this was probably the first book on the market covering Adobe's new 6.5 version of Premiere and it's quite obvious.Unfortunately even in the hands on "Quickstart" at the very beginning of the book there are several type-O's and incorrect wording. It's not spelling mistakes but incorrect words. As an example they tell you that you can preview the transition effect by "double-clicking the Transition icon in the Transition palette" when in fact you should double-click the Transition icon in the Timeline, NOT the Transition palette.Additionally their numbers don't correspond when they tell you how long to make the example clips and where they should fall on the timeline.There are several other examples just in the first few pages and for a newbie it makes following the example rather frustrating and confusing.Since I'm only just this little bit into the book I can't say for certain if it gets better or worse or stays the same but it's very evident this book was rushed to market.Funny enough too that even though the book is for Premiere 6.5 the CD includes a tryout version of Premiere 6.0!There's no excuse for this kind of shoddy penmanship (typemanship??) and I highly recommend you wait for other books that are forthcoming - read: more thoroughly edited!
This book was very helpful in getting me started. I didn;t have a background in video but needed to do some work related projects. I found chapter 6 (editing audio) for seperating audio tracks helpful and chapter 7 (transitions) a big help for adding great effects to my videos!It taught me what I needed to know about editting video with this powerful Adobe tool! Love the Bible series.
This was a long time ago but it was a great book.
