In this comprehensive guide, award winning experts from post-production house DigitalFilm Tree deliver hard-to-find training in real-world color correction and effects techniques using Final Cut Pro 5 . With the help of these experts, you'll learn invaluable advanced effects techniques, including motion and filter effects, keying and compositing, creating animated titles and how to apply effects to nested sequences. In the extensive color correction section of the book, hands-on tutorials will guide you through scene-to-scene color matching, and correcting for broadcast specifications. Finally, you'll learn to harness LiveType's capabilities (and media library) to create professional and compelling opening titles. Each chapter in this self-paced, Apple-authorized guide represents a self-contained lesson, with a project to complete, a review section, and bonus exercises to reinforce what you've learned. The accompanying DVD includes lesson files and all the materials you'll need to complete the book's projects.
