Sams Teach Yourself Adobe Premiere in 24 Hours offers practical advice from an author with a strong writing background, solid teaching experience, and extensive television production credentials.
Rather than simply presenting a collection of disconnected lessons, Sams Teach Yourself Adobe Premiere in 24 Hours always reminds its readers of the big picture and what they're trying to accomplish. The book includes not only instruction on the basics of using Premiere, but also tips on shooting high quality video, creating professional voice-overs, and effective methods.
Adobe Premiere brings high-end video editing to the PC (90% of Premiere users use Windows). Anyone with a Windows PC who wants to venture into anything more than very simple video editing will eventually turn to Premiere.
The planned new version of Premiere (slated for release in late summer 2002) will garner significant attention in part because it will add DVD authoring to its extensive feature set. The opportunity to create DVDs-from home movies to Hollywood productions-on PCs is a dramatic development, and Premiere will be at the forefront of the emerging technology. The author has been working closely with Adobe, advising them on DVD software issues.
