Nonlinear editing is the key topic in digital film and video today, and this guide is the professional "bible" of the new era in post production. The book details the procedural, creative, and technical fundamentals of editing moving images within a computer-based, interactive environment. Readers will understand not only what nonlinear editing is and how it works, but also how such systems can be used to achieve greater creative flexibility as well as cost and time savings. By far the most comprehensive book on the subject, Digital Nonlinear Editing details the growing role of compressed and digitized video in all types of communication. ©1998, 384 pages.
