PC Magazine's Jan Ozer takes on the most popular Windows-based DV editing software in classic Visual QuickStart style. If you want to explore both video-editing and DVD authoring, there's now an affordable tool--Pinnacle Studio 9 ($99, available Feb, 2004)-- and an affordable book that gives you the background in DV and DVD production technologies to do so effectively. In Pinnacle Studio 9 for Windows: Visual QuickStart Guide, veteran journalist and teacher Jan Ozer tackles Pinnacle Studio 9 in typical QuickStart style--that is, with step-by-step instructions, plenty of illustrations, and straightforward language. The guide initiates readers in the art and craft of digital video editing for streaming-media and DVD. Chapters on project planning and a primer on how to shoot good video for DVD and the Web precede Ozer's task-based instructions explaining every aspect of the program--from capturing and importing video to creating transitions and titles, and outputting the final product.
