Tight deadlines and tighter budgets define digital video production today--a fact Adobe has acknowledged and responded to with its completely revamped Windows XP-only Premiere Pro video editing software. By focusing on a single (non-Mac) version of Premiere, Adobe has been able to deliver a product that raises the bar for desktop digital video editing; this approachable, complete volume gets readers beyond the basics. Offering in-depth explanations guaranteed to make the knowledge stick (and in an easygoing style that makes the book fun to read), filmmaker and Premiere whiz Jacob Rosenberg focuses on the concepts, features, and techniques that are key to mastering Adobe Premiere Pro. If you're a novice user, you'll get the grounding you need to begin capturing, editing, and outputting digital video. And if you're a Premiere veteran, you can go straight to the comprehensive coverage of all that's new: three-point color correction, multiple timelines, a new audio mixer, enhanced media management, and more. The accompanying DVD includes project files, sample footage, Third Party Plug-ins and an hour of video tutorials that help articulate concepts and features that are better suited for video explanations than on a page.
"Jacob's skills and enthusiasm as an editor have been an invaluable resource to the product team throughout the development lifecycle of Premiere Pro. It is no understatement to say that he has been instrumental in charting the course of this application. His knowledge is seemingly without limit, as can be attested to by anyone who has watched him present his master classes at various tradeshows across the globe. I can think of no one better as a guide through the intricacies and depths of Premiere Pro 1.5--the best version of Premiere to date." --Richard Townhill, Group Product Manager, Adobe Video Products

GREAT, GREAT, GREAT, learning tool,
This review is from: Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5 Studio Techniques (Paperback)Jacob Rosenberg has created a tool that is a must have. I have been editing on my computer using Premiere Pro for about six month. It has been a slow process since, I'm learning as I go. Well, slow learning process is a thing of the past. I have had this book less then a week. It is amazing how it has simplify my learning process. No longer will I struggle learning new techniques because it explains everything in simple to understand terms.
If you are looking for a book to learn Premiere Pro for personal or proffesional use. This is the one, you can't go wrong, I know I haven't.

Play it again...Jacob !!!,
This review is from: Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5 Studio Techniques (Paperback)Jacob Rosenberg is the best teacher I know to explain you even more complicate stuff with practical examples taken from the real world.In the first two hundred pages he explains you in a "human" language ALL the interface,the nuts and bolds from Premiere Pro 1.5 so that even a beginner can learn the techniques from this awesome program.The last 300 pages are a real bonus for every videoshooter and NLE editor because he reveals greater possibilities about several techniques like chroma & luma keying,effects titling,voice over,color correcting and much more.The layout,the color examples(a request since years!!!)and the outstanding well written text are certainly worth the price.An excellent compagnion CD gives you some free bonus lessons with clear explanations regarding techniques developped in the book.
Believe me you don't need another book to learn Premiere Pro!

THE definitive book on Premiere Pro,
This review is from: Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5 Studio Techniques (Paperback)I can only imagine the amount of time and effort devoted to this book. Over 500 pages of content!
Every aspect of this book was done properly with great attention to detail. The layout is inviting, the color in the book is beautiful, the topics are laid out well and covered very clearly...very intuitive.
The most impressive aspect of this book is the practical application of the software demonstrated with Jacob's own real world projects and experience. It's great to learn what the features are, but understanding, why, when and how to use them turns an informative book into a productive one.
Nobody is more qualified than Jacob to detail the intricacies of this elaborate application. He is the preeminent expert on Adobe Premiere and has been for quite some time. I've known Jacob for years now and it's obvious that he does quality work in every respect. This book is no exception.
