I would like to say thank you to the team of the author of this book. They have a done a great task to made this book for many people (include) me to learn premiere pro cs4. I never have any experience with premiere pro or video editing software before reading this book. But after I have completed it within 2 months, I really feel confident to do any video editing. The book has the following pro:

- The author who wrote this book using a simple word to explain. Very easy to understand.
- They use the color screen shot, which easy to capture the concept.
- They have prepare a great practice file which is easy to learn after complete each lesson.
- They have divide the complex topic into a small chapter in the book which is very easy to learn and to follow.

If you are the beginner, this book is for you.

For the cons of this book are:
- The font are two small to read. I have a difficulty with my eyes to read the book in small font.
- Each chapter in the book they have theory and practice. But in my opinion, the theory should be divide in one section and the second section is practice. So it is easy for people spend the time to read all the concept then start doing the practice just one time. Instead of read the concept, practice and read the concept again.
- Some of the point in the book they said that it is beyond the scope of this book. If there is another book, this book should be tell read which book that they should read after they completed this book. But this book didn't tell any other book for further reading.

In summary, this book is target to the people who is hurry to learn the video editing in adobe premiere pro because its writing style was target to the beginner level whose want to learn its fast.

Even I have found some cons on this book, but I didn't down grade it to 4 starts. I still give it 5 star because I found this book teach you a lot to get master on the complex software...

Good luck,
Kanel

Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 CIB

I have used Premiere infrequently over the years since version 5 and it was time for a refresher and to become acquainted with the new features. The last Premiere CIB book I purchased was 5.0 (1998).

The book touches on a wide range of key features in a concise manner. If greater depth is needed, the book refers the reader to additional resources. I felt that the range of topics covered and the depth of treatment was good. This book is targeted at beginning and intermediate Premiere users and is not intended to make anyone an expert.

I completed almost all of the exercises and felt that the book fulfilled its mission and was well worth the cost and the time/effort.

I recommend that when copying the DVD to your hard drive, you place it in the recommended location. I have a separate Books & Training folder on my D: drive and copied the DVD there. Every time I opened a project for the first time the "Where is file" dialog opened. Also, this non-standard location caused some Dynamic Link exercises to produce unsatisfactory results and display the red Media Offline image.

Re the complaints by some of the early reviewers regarding the files on the DVD, I recall only one switch setting (p. 262, noted below) which was incorrect. I received my copy March 9, 2010.

While some may quibble whether all of the items below are errata, my frustration was sufficient to knock off one star for the book. When the Adobe software is brought into the mix, my frustration would cause me to knock off two stars.

I have submitted my errata list to Adobe Press.
=================
Errata

The AdobePress & Peachpit errata list contains only one item (this was already corrected in my printing [ISBN-13: 978-0-321-57385-8, 9 8 7 6 5 4 3]):

Page 252: Step 2 should read "Open the Lesson 13-2 Working sequence."

My errata list:

p. 34, Retakes: "Add Shot Placeholder" -> "Add Take Placeholder"

p. 104, step 2 (at top of page): The image should show the gap after writers2.avi, which was created by p. 102, step 8. Either that or Ripple Delete needs to be applied to the gap.

p. 191, Order counts: "works from bottom to top" -> "are applied top to bottom"

....Explanation: Either the statement is incorrect as written or I am misinterpreting what "works from" is supposed to mean.

p. 242, step 12: (See errata for p.263)

p. 262, step 5: In the Practice sequence of Lesson 14-2.prproj the Toggle Track Output of the Audio 1 track has been set (unintentionally) to not output the track (i.e., the Toggle is blank rather than displaying a speaker icon). It is necessary to click Toggle Track Output to hear the track.

p. 262, step 6: To duplicate the image shown below Step 6: Note that to keep the audio panned to the right after the second keyframe you will have to change it to a Hold keyframe. The alternative is to create a third keyframe at the end of the clip. Otherwise, the pan will return to center by the end of the clip.

p. 263: Note (in margin): An alternative cause of not hearing all 6 channels is that Edit > Preferences > Audio Hardware > Default Device needs to be set to something other than Premiere Pro WDM Sound.

....Explanation: For my Creative Audigy 2 I had to set the Default Device to Creative ASIO. Win7 64-bit.

p. 265, step 2: "...by clicking Channel Volume." -> "...by clicking Volume:Level."
p. 265, step 3: "Select Left." -> "Select Left from the Channel Volume entry."

p. 338, steps 4-6: Player controls may be missing from Adobe Reader on Vista x64 or Win7 x64. Apparently there is a bug related to Adobe Reader/Quicktime/Windows_x64.

....Details as of March 25, 2010: I found references to this problem starting in November 2008, but I gave up researching/testing fixes because I do not intend to use Clip Notes anyway. My config: Win7 x64, Adobe Reader 9.3.1 (the latest), and Quicktime 7.6.5 (the latest).

p. 342, step 5: If you didn't copy the CIB DVD files in the recommended folder, you will encounter the red "Media offline" image. Click the Project panel, press ~ to make it full screen, and you will see that the media is offline (also indicated by the file icon). Right-click on the file icon for each of the three offline files and select "Link media.." as was discussed in a previous lesson. Press ~ again to return to normal view.

p. 357, step 5: "...select the lower third/ae_practice composition..." -> "...select the lower third composition..."

....Explanation: The "/ae_practice" suffix appears in the Project panel after import, but not in the Import Composition dialog box.

p. 360, step 4, second paragraph: "You may need to render the sequence in Adobe Premiere Pro to set it play back smoothly." -> "You will probably need to render..."

....Explanation: As originally written this seems a little disingenuous. Maybe if you perform the playback on a supercomputer you will not have to render it to see it play smoothly. It took 4 minutes 22 seconds to render the 29 seconds of the DV-quality sequence. My config: Asus P6X58D motherboard, stock i7-920 2.67GHz (4 actual processors; 8 virtual processors), 12GB 1600 memory, no RAID 0. I am considering the purchase a 1920x1080 camcorder but render times like this for DV make me question the wisdom of doing so.

p. 365, step 3: "Adobe Premiere Pro offers nine export options..." -> "Adobe Premiere Pro offers at least five export options..."

p. 369, step 6: "The export will be added to Adobe Media Encoder." -> "An Export Frame dialog box will open with the frame number appended to the file name. Click OK."
p. 369, step 7: Delete this step.

p. 372, step 1: "To begin, open the Format menu..." -> "Export the same sequence as in the previous exercise. To begin, open the Format menu..."

p. 374, step 5: "...is selected and click OK." -> "...is selected."
p. 374, step 6: "Name the file and click Save." -> "Name the file and click OK."

p. 374, steps 7-10: (bugs in Adobe Media Encoder or Device Central?) The video was frozen at the first frame while the audio played correctly. The player controls did not work. Note that selecting Fullscreen Mode in step 8 will rotate the video but not the phone so you need to click the CCW rotation icon near the bottom of the window.

p. 382, step 3: "Name this chapter marker Dixie." -> "Double-click on the marker icon or, if the Current Time Indicator is still over the marker icon, press * on the numeric keypad to open the Marker dialog box. Name this chapter marker Dixie and press OK."

....Explanation: While creating numbered markers was presented earlier in the book, I don't recall any training on opening and using the Marker dialog.

p. 389, step 5: If you didn't copy the CIB DVD files in the recommended folder, you will encounter the red "Media offline" image. Unlike Premiere, Encore does not have a feature to locate assets missing from a Premiere project.

p. 391, step 3. Encore hung while switching to Blu-Ray. Switched to Premiere to shut it down and it hung. Windows Task Manager would not start so I could not shut down Encore and Premiere down. Had to perform a hardware reset. My system has been very reliable so I suspect that Dynamic Link is fragile and that going back and forth between Premiere/AfterEffects/Encore in the preceding lessons had pushed it too far. Rather than re-doing the entire Encore chapter from scratch I gave up with one page of the book to go.

With the frequent errors toward the end of the book I got the impression that either a different writer worked on those chapters or the testers were getting weary or sections were extracted from a previous version of CIB.

==================
Premiere Pro CS4 bugs/inconveniences which you may encounter (version PP4.2.1 on Win7 x64):

o Checkbox "Display only exact filename matches" in the "Where is the file" dialog box has no effect. Works correctly on XP x32.

o The Effects Control panel does not honor the standard keyboard shortcut of entering time from the numeric keypad. If you want to go to a specific time in the Timeline, Program Monitor, Source Monitor, or Reference Monitor you can simply enter the time (no punctuation (e.g., ; or .) needed). But this does not work when the Effects Control panel has focus. (Note that if one or more clips are selected when using this technique, the clips are moved so that the in point of the first clip aligns with the entered time.)

o Activating the Effects panel does not place the cursor in the search field. This is probably a minor issue if you select the Effects panel with the mouse, but it is more of an inconvenience if you got there via Shift+7.

o The image on External Devices (Program Monitor > Playback Settings) is not updated real time while manipulating an effect in Effect Controls while the Program Monitor > Display Mode is set to one or more of the Vectorscope/waveform monitors. The work around is to leave the Program Monitor set to Composite Video and set the Reference Monitor (Window > Reference Monitor) to display the Vectorscope/waveform monitors.

o Applying the Reverb effect to a 5.1 submix only outputs to the Front Left and Front Right channels, that is, only the two leftmost VU columns in the mixer display for the Master bus display activity. (I tried a variation on Lesson 14-5: add a 5.1 submix, direct Audio 6 and Audio 7 to that new submix, and add the Reverb effect. With Reverb bypassed everything is fine; with Reverb enabled, there is no output. Maybe Premiere is using the stereo version of Reverb rather than the 5.1 version.).
