About the Book:

An essential operational manual for professional trainees and students in the post-production industry. Also a useful reference tool for producers and directors.

Nonlinear is a buzzword for every broadcaster and facility house worldwide. Systems range from the humble to the exotic, and despite the growing acceptance of the technology, many users, both new and experienced, find the complexity of the operation and the time spent loading the material and rendering effects difficult to manage at first. Non-linear editing also comes with its own specialist language, requiring each editor to be conversant with a new range of skills from day one. As desktop systems improve the role of the traditional editor is constantly evolving and expanding.

Written in a concise and clear manner, the book Nonlinear Editing serves as a practical guide to the efficient management and operation of non-linear editing systems. It describes the technology involved, the essential techniques to be mastered including on-line and off-line editing, project management, rendering effects, working with graphics and audio, and adding third party applications. Designed for quick and easy reference, this is a practical user guide to non-linear editing that comes complete with an extensive jargon buster that will get you fully conversant with the technology in a short space of time.

Key Features of Nonlinear Editing include:
• A quick reference guide containing all essential information
• Provides useful on-the-job information
• Basic concepts are explained in a clear manner for ease of understanding
