9780764540530: Final Cut Pro4 Bible

As digital video becomes increasingly popular? particularly with the much-heralded release of Final Cut Express? more and more people will be looking for a comprehensive guide to Final Cut Express and Final Cut Pro. Final Cut Pro democratised the film industry, allowing video producers with $US999 software and a Mac to obtain results on par with major studios. Now the release of Final Cut Express, priced at just $US299, brings high-level video editing capabilities to the average consumer. The previous edition of the Final Cut Pro Bible has a well-deserved reputation for being exceptionally thorough. Readers will be looking for this kind of authoritative coverage of the new Final Cut Express and the updated version of Final Cut Pro? both completely reengineered for Mac OS X.

J.J. Marshall lives in New York City, where he makes his living as a digital video editor, designer, teacher, and consultant. Most recently, he wrote the After Effects 5 Bible (published by Wiley) right after assisting with the development of a nationwide broadband news-on-demand network called The FeedRoom. Prior to that, J.J. helped introduce Oxygen Media to the joys of Final Cut Pro and After Effects while editing a weekly two-hour show. In addition to teaching Motion Graphics at the School of Visual Arts, his recent freelance efforts have included projects for the New York New Media Association (NYNMA), Avon, and the Center for Neurobiology and Behavior at Columbia University, as well as numerous documentary productions.

Jeffrey Chong is a freelance film and television editor who has worked in commercial production for the past 20 years. His passion for Macintosh computers and the do-it-yourself attitude of an auteur made him, almost by definition, a prime candidate for working with Apple’s Final Cut Pro since its first release. He currently lives, works, and teaches in New York City.
