Book by Rubin, Michael
This handbook about the popular world of digital nonlinear editing is addressed to both professionals and students, as well as interested bystanders. It covers virtually everything anyone would want to know about the new world of electronic post production, in non-technical language and without the geeky mumbo jumbo that characterizes most professional texts. Profusely illustrated.
While the book is useful for anyone investigating or wishing to purchase a digital editing system, it is not meant to be a buyer’s guide. It is designed not to go out of date every time a new product is introduced or software release comes out. It is about essentials. Fundamentals. Concepts. And language.
With over 15,000 copies in print, Nonlinear is the best selling textbook on nonlinear editing in the world today. It is widely used in colleges, universities, and professional organizations.
Nonlinear editing is the key topic in digital film and video today, and Digital Nonlinear Editing 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.
The completely revised second edition chronicles a decade of digital nonlinear editing from home consumer editing applications to professional film and video editing systems. It provides in-depth explanations of digital video compression, storage, and networking; advances in digital video, computer processing power, the blurring of offline and online, digital storage advances, and desktop painting and compositing applications.
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. From the basics of traditional editing to the cutting edge of digital media, this is the book for every current and prospective communications professional.
