Chris Grover's book, on the other hand, jumps right into things with a quick tour of premiere Elements and familiarizes you with the program, leading you to the completion of an "InstantMovie". This is more satisfying than the approach taken in the Dummies book.
Grover then takes the reader on a more detailed excursion through Premiere Elements, beginning with importing video, sound, still pictures and animation. He then moves into using Premiere Elements to organize your media assets. I disagree with the placement of this chapter for my preference would actually be to have it as an appendix. But logically it does flow properly even though I suspect most people will not make significant use of these features.
Thirty or so pages on editing come next. There are plenty of illustrations, which is very helpful.
The balance of the chapters in this section cover adding transitions, effects and themes and animated effects and titles, closing with a section on editing your sound track.
Grover's writing style is clear and generally concise. He includes a lot of very useful information and often, but helpfully, refers to other programs and resources that may be useful.
In the final part, Grover covers getting your finished projects to the web, CD, DVD and devices like the iPod.
There are also two handy appendixes covering the menus in detail for both Premiere Elements and its companion Elements Organizer program.
Finally, there is a site for downloading video material to use in the lessons provided, as well as other materials.
In sum, this is a complete instructional manual on how ot use every aspect of Adobe Premiere Elements 8. You can read it in bits and pieces, use it straight through as a course or just dip into it as a reference. It works on all levels.
Well worth the price.
The "For Dummies" book is closer in its approach to the "Missing Manual" in that it is more general. Its strength is that it explains more about using HD cameras that are not tape based.
Bottom line is that all three books have different strengths and I find them all useful for my projects.
It is easy to read and understand, lots of helpful suggestions. Just doesn't 'cover it all' for me. Guess that's not unusual for this type of manual.
