Set manual aside and start here for your video projects,
This review is from: Pinnacle Studio 10 for Windows (Paperback)I first bought the precursor book, Pinnacle Studio 9, but after upgrading to Studio 10, I knew I had to upgrade to Jan Ozer's new book. It is my Studio bible, and I rarely go through a project without referencing it several times, or scanning through to my dog-eared pages to remind me to do something. I only do amateur home-video creations, but with Pinnacle Studio and this book, I've made many a family member smile and laugh. From the use of shortcuts, to computer maintenance, to shooting good video, to excellent examples, Mr. Ozer has created a guide that anyone even semi-computer literate could follow. He does it in a way that if you need more assistance, you can read it more slowly, but for the more expert user, the book is laid out to get your information quickly. Chapters are broken up nicely, so you can find what you're looking for faster, e.g. he has both an analog and a digital chapter, so if you don't have analog equipment, you can skip that section, and vice versa...

An Essential book for Studio 10 users,
This review is from: Pinnacle Studio 10 for Windows (Paperback)Once again Jan Ozer has produced a most valuable book for Studio users. My suggestion would be to retire the Studio 10 Manual to the back of the bookcase, Jans book has all the answers in clear and easy to follow instructions, with plenty of illustrations. It's the only book you will need to get the most out of Studio 10.
