Announced by Apple at NAB in April 2005 to near universal acclaim, Final Cut Studio is the ultimate Digital video/audio production suite featuring Final Cut Pro 5, a major upgrade to the Emmy award-winning editing software. Final Cut Studio also includes Soundtrack Pro, for audio editing and sound design, Motion 2, for real-time motion graphics and DVD Studio Pro 4, for authoring high definition DVDs to the latest HD DVD specification. Written by Apple experts Mary Plummer, Damian Allen, Klark Perez and Matthew Geller - the lessons in this book-DVD combo are the official Apple Pro Training Final Cut Studio tutorials, and are available in printed form for the first time! The Interactive DVD Tutorial takes you through the applications interfaces and primary features, including a narrated tour of important new features. This hands-on teaching tool includes lesson files and media on the DVD, so you can work through real-world projects as you learn. The Final Cut Studio Tutorials are step-by-step, project-based lessons - the equivalent of about 8 hours of training. You’ll edit two video projects, create motion graphics for a 10-second promo and a ‘coming up next’ TV bumper, edit and mix audio files, and author two complete DVD menus. Accompanying project and media files are located on the book’s second DVD. (Please note: these tutorials are also available in PDF format on two DVDs that are included in the box with the Final Cut Studio software).
