Updates & Corrections

The text on the Editor's Guide to Adobe Premiere Pro "Updates" tab should read as follows:

The file,, included with the assets for The Editor's Guide to Adobe Premiere Pro, used a video codec many users many not have installed. When attempting to relink the media files, many users will receive a warning message explaining that a necessary codec is missing. A replacement file has been created (available via the link below), using a common codec. To use the new file, browse to the book's folder you copied to your hard drive, and then to the Lessons and Media/Media/Footage folder, where you will find the original jacket_1.mxf.xmp file. Copy the new file into that folder, and choose to replace the original file with the newer one in the dialog box that will appear.
