UNDERSTAND, not just LEARN
That is the motto of the book series "Graphically Enhanced Manuals" (GEM). They're a new type of manual with a visual approach that helps you UNDERSTAND a program, not just LEARN it. No need to read through 500 pages of dry text explanations. Rich graphics and diagrams help you to get that "aha" effect and make it easy to comprehend difficult concepts. The Graphically Enhanced Manuals help you master a program much faster with a much deeper understanding of concepts, features and workflows in a very intuitive way that is easy to understand
Customer ReviewsSee All
I've been using FCP since the day it came out. I've also been a software developer for almost 40 years. THIS is how documentation should be written! True, I personally knew most of the stuff in this book, but it is equally true that I found things that were new to me, and/or which became much clearer. If you're new to FCP, this is the one book to have.
GEMs are the best
I have other books from this book series and they are just the best.
I started to learn Final Cut Pro in addition to my audio production work and, of course, there was no doubt on which book to get to learn the app.
Excellent choice as always.
The way to learn an app
I have other books of this series and even my professor at my audio production class recommended them (the Pro Tools book).
I wanted to learn FInal Cut by myself to dive a little bit into video editing, and as I thouhg, this book is the right choice. it explaines everything in details so I understand how Final Cut Pro x works.
