This task-based guide has been revised to cover the latest version of Apple's consumer-level video editing, effects, and compositing software! Built around the same interface as its Emmy Award-winning big brother, Final Cut Pro, and updated with a slew of powerful new features, Apple's Final Cut Express 2 ($299; upgrade, $99) is the digital video editing application for the rest of us: everyone who wants to make sophisticated, compelling videos using the tools and workflow of the pros but without investing heavily in training or equipment. This concise yet complete task-based reference by digital video expert Lisa Brenneis uses loads of illustrations and valuable professional advice to show Final Cut Express users how to edit video; apply special effects and transitions; master the program's compositing, titling, and audio tools; and output their finished work. Readers will also learn to use Final Cut Express 2's new features: real-time effects and transition preview, enhanced audio editing capabilities, real-time color correction tools, dynamic and asymmetrical trimming, and much more.
