9781879211001: The Amiga Desktop Video Workbook

Welcome to the world of video. Please bring your alphabet. TBC, ENG, EFP, DVE, EDL, VTR, SEG... This is but a small taste of the  alphabet soup that bombards you as you peer, puzzled, through the opening door of opportunity into desktop video.

The video business embraces a number of disciplines, and with its vast complexity it's a world which has remained out of reach of mere humanoids. That is, until the current invasion of its hallowed halls by a band of dedicated computerists now called "desktop" videographers. The emergence of the concept of desktop video forms a turning point for the video industry, which has only reluctantly adjusted itself to a new breed of videographer, to a new level of expectations in the art and technique of the medium, and to a new marriage of small computer technology with the traditionally analog world of video production, editing, and manipulation.

From the Author:

The video business embraces a number of disciplines, and with its vast complexity it's a world which has remained out of reach of mere humanoids. That is, until the current invasion of its hallowed halls by a band of dedicated computerists now called "desktop" videographers. The emergence of the concept of desktop video forms a turning point for the video industry, which has only reluctantly adjusted itself to a new breed of videographer, to a new level of expectations in the art and technique of the medium, and to a new marriage of small computer technology with the traditionally analog world of video production, editing, and manipulation.

This book, one of the first on the subject of "desktop" video, showed what the video world was like, and had been like prior to the invention - by none other than Amiga - of desktop video. In this book, I tried to cut through and cut out the video industry's excruciatingly abecedarian jargon. This is a book about the Amiga as a video studio in a box, about how to put it to work for you to make your way in the world of video, and about how to deal with the mechanics of opening your own video business, if you want to. I decrypted the buzzwords and endeavored to bring it all down to the desktop - or should I say "Workbench" - where you can
get at it...

Note: As published by MicroSearch in 1990, the book came with an Amiga-formatted floppy disk containing freely distributable programs, utilities, and video test graphics.
