Bestselling author Jeff Carlson is back with a fully updated revision of the iMovie Visual QuickStart Guide. Completely overhauled for iMovie HD and iDVD 5, this book uses step-by-step instructions and loads of illustrations to get readers up to speed quickly in the process of making movies with iMovie and creating Hollywood-quality DVDs on which to share them (as well as photos, music, and more). First-time movie and DVD makers will find all the basics covered here--from shooting and capturing footage, viewing clips, and working in the iMovie timeline to dragging and dropping iMovies into new iDVD projects and adding GarageBand-created songs to their newly created DVDs. Readers will find coverage of both of the programs' niftiest new features, including iMovie's new HD compatibility, dozens of new video effects, sound effects, and transitions, more powerful editing features, and the new "Magic iMovie" feature, which automatically creates a simple iMovie for you with the existing footage in your camcorder. iDVD 5 offers 15 new Apple-designed themes and OneStep DVD, which exports a movie into a finished DVD automatically.

This book is an acclaimed industry 'bible'. It is used as a standard professional reference work and written by the leading expert in the field, John Watkinson. The information is presented in his usual clear style with the minimum of equations. As the worlds of film, digital imaging and computing converge, constant re-skilling within these industries is vital and the "Art of Digital Video" addresses this need. This third edition takes into account the very latest technology in a converged media age. This book contains new material which includes: more on the computing aspects of digital video; chapters on digital video broadcasting and video principles; more on basic colorimetry and picture principles; and, progressive versus interface scanning. John Watkinson is an international consultant in audio, video and data recording. The author is a Fellow of the AES, a member of the British Computer Society and a chartered information systems practitioner. He presents lectures, seminars, conference papers and training courses worldwide. He is the author of many other Focal Press books, including: the Kraszna-Krausz award winning "MPEG-2"; "The Art of Digital Audio"; "An Introduction to Digital Video"; "The Art of Sound Reproduction"; and, "TV Fundamentals and Audio for Television". He is also co-author, with Francis Rumsey, of "The Digital Interface Handbook", and contributor to the "Loudspeaker and Headphone Handbook, 3rd Edition".

New video technology makes it possible to produce Hollywood-quality features, documentaries, training films, and a variety of other productions at a fraction of the cost of traditional film production. To master these digital tools or production, producers need to understand how to integrate these technologies with the traditional filmmakers' resources. If you are interested in, or are currently producing digital features, documentaries, or training material, everything you need to know about digital hardware, software, scripting, production, postproduction, and editing is included in this comprehensive resource. The book guides novice filmmakers through the entire production process, (covering both Windows and Macintosh platform issues), while helping experienced filmmakers discover how DV differs from what they already know. It's not just about video on your desktop, it's about using your desktop to create productions that can be distributed on the web, home video, broadcast television, projection or video including NTSC, PAL or DTV. The text: includes an in-depth analysis and comparison of the various digital video formats and cameras; details the various delivery formats including the Web, home video, TV, projection, and video (NTSC, PAL or DTV); and provides a detailed explanation of how to transfer digital video to film (including sample QuickTime movies of transferred footage). The CD-ROM includes sample productions to use in the learning process, demos of leading products, and other supporting files for the information covered in the book.
