Digital Video Editing continues where Digital Camcorder left off. Intended for the serious hobbyist and no-budget video maker, this book guides readers through the fundamental tasks of movie editing, from planning and librarianship through narrative cutting to the seductive world of visual effects. Throughout, however, the author's focus is trained on the job of storytelling and communication, putting the needs of the movie and its audience above any love of technological novelty for its own sake.
