Title: After Effects in Production: A Companion for Creating Motion Graphics
Publisher: CMP Books
Authors: Trish Meyer, Chris Meyer
Rating: 3/5
Customer opinion - 3 stars out of 5
just a little bit!


Nice book. Not for dummies but intermediate users.But unfortunately you cant find any words about "advanced" keying, matting, rotoscoping, color correcting, and motion tracking-camera matching... These are the most important elements of compositing. After Effects can really do that all but the book doesnt tell in advance. Only basic samples.Some professional case studies in book dont have enough details to deconstruct the final projects, only briefs in secret. Well the book is perfect for midlevel users but not for advanced.Well the writers are preparing a couple of book for the series. We hope they will be more specific and advanced.

The ONLY Streaming Media Production Book You Need


It's rare that any technical book covers a subject really well from beginning to end, in an easy to read manner with real-world examples, but this is exactly what the Streaming Media Bible does.
This no-nonsense approach allows the Streaming Media Bible to make even the most complex digital media technologies easy to understand, and more importantly simple to implement.
Not only does the Streaming Media Bible teach you how to implement technology, but more importantly it gives you some in-sight as to various options you have and what you should think about to find a solution that works best for your needs.
... I highly recommend the Streaming Media Bible for the digital media technical person looking to learn real-world techniques.

An excellent reference for the programming language C


This book is nearly useless to anyone trying to learn C. All 16 students in my C class were unanimous in our dislike of this book. It may be OK if you already are trained in programming C, but it was confusing and caused the sales of other books to go up as we searched for a good manual on C.

Great Book!


This book is easy to read and packs a lot of great information. If you know nothing about embedded systems programming, this is a great place to start. I also recommend reading "An Embedded Software Primer" by David E Simon along with it, as that book will cover the basics of Real Time Operating Systems. I learned a lot from both.
