Let me start this review by stating that Carl Plumer's prior book Hollywood Special Effects with Adobe Premiere Elements 3 (HSE PE3) is my favorite software application "How-to" book, ever. If there was a 6 star rating I would give it to the HSE PE3. When I first heard about "Creating Hollywood Style Movies with Adobe Premiere Elements 7" (CHSM PE7) by the same author, I bought it without any review, because I thought, if it was anything like HSE PE3 with new effects it would be worthwhile. Because the book had a slightly different name and due to the fact that the cover photo was not like any effect in the previous book, I was hopeful that this would be more like a Vol. 2, rather than a rewrite for PE7. If you haven't guessed, that's the disappointment, it's a rewrite. Now, don't get me wrong, there are new effects in CHSM PE7; just so few, that for owners of HSE PE3, you may want to save the $30 (especially in this economy:-)).However, I'm happy to say though that the new version is as richly illustrated as that previous version (obviously for Premier Elements 7). The literal 1, 2, 3 stepped version points out for virtually every step, and doesn't assume you know or remember a technique that you learned in a prior chapter. So, if you don't have HSE PE3, and are looking for a great step-by-step guide to PE 7 this book will fit the bill.If you can make the PE3 to PE7 transition (by the way, there is no such thing as Adobe Premier Elements version 5 or 6, so it is not such a dramatic change as it sounds from the last book) it is pretty much the same book for the user.
