The Avid Media Composer 6.x Cookbook is a fantastic source of information for users of all different experience levels. A beginner can pick this book up and have a solid understanding of the program by the end. Being a more advanced user myself, I picked up many helpful and time-saving tips after reading through it.

It walks the reader through things step-by-step, with screenshots of some of the more difficult and in-depth tasks. The typical instructional section will start with "Getting Ready," then to "How To Do It..." and finally, "There's More..." giving a really thorough look at the task at hand. Items covered run from the simple (Exporting a Still Image) to the complex (MultiCamera Mode Editing).

There is also ample additional information about various terminology within the program that is written in plain English as well as 3 appendixes with even more information. The Avid Media Composer 6.x Cookbook is less a "cookbook" than an encyclopedia! This will make a very useful reference book for anyone who utilizes Avid Media Composer 6 - your editing bay would be incomplete without it. Highly recommended.

This is one instance where you can judge a book by its cover. The Media Composer 6.x Cookbook is exactly what it says it is. Want to transcode an AMA file? There's a recipe for that. Don't quite understand how to do a split edit in Media Composer? Look at the recipe.
Benjamin Hershleder's book guides the reader to a better understanding of what the software can do and how it relates to using it in the real world. The information is presented in the format of a recipe. First the reader is presented with a task to accomplish, anything from importing media to using Audio Suite plug-ins to understanding multi-cam editing. Then the recipe moves through getting ready and how to do the task. Often there are additional tips or cautions at the end of each task as well.

The book is written in a concise, informative manner with each of the topics covered in a page or two. The illustrations are well labeled and help in understanding the instructions. This is not a "How To Edit" book, it is a book to help accomplish specific tasks in editing on Avid software. It would help to have a basic understanding of Media Composer to get full use of the information but beginners could follow the instructions and still accomplish the "recipe."

I have worked 25 years as an editor and it has shown me that often times the job determines what skill set we use. This is a great book to pick up a new technique or rediscover ones that have been put aside.

As Apple steps away from the professional market and increasingly more into the prosumer market with FCP X, there is more of a need than than at any time in the last decade for professional video editors and filmmakers to learn (or relearn) Avid. Avid, not wanting to go gentle into that good night, has raged and created Media Composer 6 in hopes of gathering up the video professionals that Apple sent to the curb. This book comes at a perfect time -- a time when people who learned on old versions of Media Composer are perplexed by how different the interface and tools are as well as the people who learned the craft using Final Cut.

The book delivers in content as well. There are 9 chapters that cover a wide range of topics in depth. Appropriately enough, the first chapters covers media acquisition, which is important as Avid puts more emphasis on setting up a project right before beginning than the other more plug-and-play video editors. After acquiring media, the book explains pretty linearly how to set-up your workspace, make cuts, maintain sync, mix audio and use multiple cameras. Each chapter and topics starts with an overview, following by a "how to do it" section followed by an example followed by a "there's more" section. Mr. Hershleder clearly has been in the business for a long time as he approaches each idea from a real-world perspective--not simply a software instructor point of view. Particularly useful is the appendix sections, which has many tips.

The only thing lacking in this book is a good overall tool menu and explanation of each mode and tool as well as a list of keyboard shortcuts. However, this problem is minimized by the numerous options that exist on the Internet. Also, people who do not have MC6 will be hard-pressed to understand what might be different in their version of the software, but Avid, as a company, is really good about keeping things consistent between versions with the exception of major updates, like the smart tool that was introduced a few versions back.

Overall, this book is a fantastic value for anyone who needs to learn Media Composer 6. Don't be intimidated and wait for Final Cut to become obsolete. Take the Avid plunge and buy this book.

This book can be considered as a reference manual, avid clear and concise, as the software works, where is every thing and what is it, when you have any doubt you'll find it here, the author has lost much time in detail one by one, each of the commands, especially on the video editing, I do not have any of the menus left without telling us that it serves.

For video editors in other softwares like Premiere or Final Cut that wants to move to Avid, this may be your manual, where you can change seamless software, that lets you find every one of those commands that had their previous program.

Congratulations to the author and thanks for taking the time to learn others.
