Cut a scene from the USA Network television series Monk, create a promo for Seaworld’s Belief documentary,  and master filters and effects as you edit a segment of  BBC Motion Gallery's Living Colour documentary. Completely revised for Final Cut Pro 6 and featuring all-new footage, this best-selling, Apple-certified guide provides a strong foundation in all aspects of video editing. Renowned author Diana Weynand starts with basic video editing techniques and takes you all the way through Final Cut Pro’s powerful advanced features. Each chapter presents a complete lesson in an aspect of video editing and finishing, using actual broadcast footage. After marking and editing clips to create a rough cut, you’ll learn how to trim and refine the cut before moving on to complex tasks such as mixing sound, adding titles, creating transitions and motion effects, applying filters, real-time color correcting, and working with multi-format and multi-camera footage.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware of the DVD Sept. 14 2007
By S. L. Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
While the book does a pretty good job of explaining how to do things in FCP, I found some of the explanations to be a little bit lengthy and tedious... too much text and not enough visual examples in some cases, although to be fair, the introductory chapters, particularly with the full-page diagrams of the user interface parts are fantastic. The BIG BIG BIG problem with this book is that sometimes the DVD does not always work and you will have a problem loading files. Not sure what the problem is with this. I have over 20 students using the book and about 2/3 of them have had some problem with it. I myself could not open one of the video clips on my MacBook Pro.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you are forced to learn Final Cut Pro with a book: this is it! Aug. 16 2007
By M. Ramon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I was frustrated with the FCP tutorials who seemed written by non-English speaking nerds and badly translated, and with the irritating habit of refer you to a different page every two lines...this book is writen by somebody who can actually teach, in plain English. I found out that by following every easy step you can actually start to edit your project pretty soon, thanks to the excellent footage and good tutorials. Totally recomended for anybody who want to learn how to edit electronically and cannot attend one of these expensive courses. First rate!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just interface overview Oct. 21 2007
By Vladimir Nagorniy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book actually teaches you efficient work flows. All lessons designed in a really smart way, so your progress is well guided. Makes you learn keyboard shortcuts. The footage was fun to work with (not the usual snowboarders and surfers). Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book and a Great Learning Experience Aug. 5 2008
By foust - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After struggling for a few weeks trying to learn Final Cut Pro from the 4 volume set of books that came with the software, I was almost ready to call it quits and dump $900(USD) into one of the 3 day Final Cut Pro certification courses. After learning that this is the book that is used with those courses, and having heard Great things about Peach Pit Press, and after reading the reviews here, I decided to get this book and give it a go.

First let me say that I am not a typical 'learn from the books' kind of learner. I usually (especially with software) just hack around and figure things out. Final Cut is pretty complicated, and I need to know how to operate it pretty quickly (changing computers and software for editing, Win->Mac). I have learned most of what I need to get going on some projects after just going through the first 4 lessons! I am not going to stop there, I plan to finish this book, and probably look into additional volumes from this series for things like Soundtrack Pro and Motion.

Sure the Sea World footage and especially the music is cheesy, but you are encouraged to do additional work at the end of each lesson, to reinforce what you were just taught. This is where it gets fun! I found myself taking some music from my collection and replacing the awful Sea World song, and cutting footage to that instead.

I did not experience any problem with any of the projects opening (I took a peek).

If you are wanting to get to know this software, this is a great book to start with!

There is no better book for beginning editors. I recommend it to all those trying to learn the basics (and some moderately advanced workflow things) of Final Cut Pro 6.
