Avoid costly missteps in postproduction and get it right the first time with this book. Written by an in-the-trenches professional who works with HD every day, High Definition Postproduction is an overview of this exciting opportunity for film and video production and postproduction professionals. High Definition production and editing is here and definitely a reality. High-def network shows are aired on a weekly basis. Several HD-only channels are well into their production schedules. HD is even used for major film productions and post production processes. However, unlike the existing 4x3, NTSC format, the HD world has many variables. This ability to choose various frame rates, frame sizes, bit rates, and color space options makes this an exciting, yet somewhat daunting challenge. The future may hold even more options as electronics continue to evolve and manufactures continue to exploit this format. Naturally, all of these options can lead to confusion and errors.

This book begins with an overview of the HD format and then covers commonly-asked questions. A chapter on shooting details how to smooth the path for post. Postproduction workflows, including the digital intermediate, are covered in great detail, and are enhanced by real-world examples.

From HDV to the high-end cameras used in Star Wars and Sin City, this book is your complete guide to HD.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing and thin Aug. 25 2007
By RedRocker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Looked forward to the book, but found its organization rambling, and its content offering little more than a cataloging of the hd formats. It's endorsement of HDV is troublesome, given the problems of using that codec in post. No mention of 2k or 4k, and scant mention of the nonlinear systems that handle HD. Sadly, it already feels out of date.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, Great Resource Sept. 4 2007
By Allon Furstenberg - Published on Amazon.com
Working in the Television world,and with more and more shoots being done in the mysterious HD format, it can often be confusing, understanding which frame rates to use and knowing what can be cheated in post, etc. I Bought this book and i found it to be one of the best HD books on the market. It has cleared up much of the confusion, misconceptions and has taken the myustery out of HD shooting/editing. I have already recommended it to many of my collegues and it is a huge resource, which can be refered back to again and again. MANY THANKS

5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to HD technology June 1 2007

Bought this book as a starting reference for HD technologies. It gave me a great start and will be put in a handy location for future references. Already lending it out to another HD newbie.
5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommend!!!! March 30 2008
By Todd Smaretsky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Very informative but not excruciatingly exhaustive. Many of the random questions I had were answered clearly. I found the book also to be very inspiring; being a low budget filmmaker, it make me realize the dream is within reach, and that HD is not too far from my grasp. I was especially encouraged by the information he provided about HDV - being that I use a Canon XH A1.
Sincerely, Awesome book!! To the point, but extremely informative - it provides what you need without all the froth.
2.0 out of 5 stars Badly organized, rambling and repetitive. Oct. 12 2007
By Peter W. Fraser - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book hoping to get a solid outline of HD post techniques. Unfortunately the book is rambling and poorly organized. The introductory material is simple, repetitive and sometimes just plain wrong. The more advanced material is very cursory, and quite jumbled in its presentation. The author may well be a great video editor, but his command of the technical aspects of video formats and compression seems tenuous.
