This is the media version to get!
I first got the PDF version. Great, super-clear writing style, but it looked a bit "flat," and clunky to read on an iPad.
Bought the printed version, pricey but nice.
For this update, I decided to try the iBooks version after hearing it was "special" somehow.
Holy smoke, it was!
This impressed me enough that I want to create a few "books" like these myself (in a completely different field).
For visual people who want to learn FCP X and Motion, I don't think there's a better way than this series of iBooks. Just put your iPad next to your Mac and refer back and forth between them. It doesn't get clearer than this!
The new iBook format looks fantastic, I had no idea.
When was the last time Apple hid their light under a bushel?
Best kept secret...
I used iMovie for my home movies and wanted to try Final Cut Pro X to use all those great features. I had the GarageBand manuals form the same author and saw the he also wrote a manual for Final Cut Pro X.
Although I was afraid that the app might be a little bit too much for me, with this book it turned out very easy. Everything is explained in a way that clear understood. I will definitely by the second part too.
Thanks for such a great manual
Fantastic Way to Learn the Apple Pro Apps
I already owned 4 of Edgar's graphically enhanced manuals as PDF's, but wow, his reformatting of the guides in the iBooks format is a surprising improvement on an already terrific way to learn the Apple pro apps. I'm hooked and ready for the FCP X 10.1 iBook.
