How to Use This Book

"Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted."

This book is different. I have approached it like an edit session. I have gathered the best source materials. I have "logged the tapes," so to speak, by pulling only the essential information that a video editor, motion graphic artist, or DVD designer would need. I've organized things into bins for you (except here they're called chapters). I've also loaded the system with tons of new effects and powerful tools to help you out. Think of me as the perfect assistant. I've prepared everything for you—now go to town.

This book and accompanying disc can be enjoyed in a nonlinear fashion. Work in whatever order you want (or need). I've included a detailed index and glossary to help you through any gaps caused by skipping around. If you're a little rusty, there are expert articles and tips on the DVD to help you through.

I want Photoshop to be fast and easy for you. I also want you to understand it, not just memorize things. While the chapters will often contain step-by-step instructions for certain skills, there is always a clear explanation of both how and why to do things. I want you to get immediate results every time you read a chapter.

I face the same problems you do. I have designed this book so it can live next to your NLE or motion graphics suite. Since space is valuable I have tried to give you the best book out there on making graphics for video. All of the techniques in this book are real-world solutions. You have problems. . .I've got answers.
