Digital Video Editing with Final Cut Express Reviews


"combines black-and-white illustrations and screenshots with easy-to-follow narration to better instruct and draw out the skill and creativity of amateur and professional digital filmmakers alike."- Bookwatch

"There are few writers that combine both wit and expertise when tackling a complex subject such as Non Linear Editing. Charles Roberts makes learning Final Cut Express flat out fun...and yes, easy."
Michael Horton, Los Angeles Final Cut Pro User Group (LAFCPUG)

"Charles Roberts has been a valuable resource to Final Cut users since the very beginning. He knows the software inside out but more importantly, he's a credentialed teacher and this gives him the kind of
experience that allows him to open his subject matter in clear and simple terms."
Ron & Kathlyn Lindeboom, creativecow.net
