Creating Windows Digital Video Titling and Graphics

Michael Yeager and Phebe Enfield (1996, KnowledgePath Video, 1630 N. Main Street, Suite 132, Walnut Creek, CA 94596; 3 1/2 hours, $70)

The latest in KnowledgePath's extensive series of instructional videotapes covers the tools and techniques you'll need to create high-quality titles and graphics for video production on your Windows PC. Focusing on a handful of specific graphics production programs (including Adobe Photoshop and Premiere, CorelDraw, Fractal Design Painter, Ray Dream Designer, CrystalGraphics Flying Fonts, Strata MediaPaint and others), narrator Michael Yeager clearly shows how professionals use these applications to achieve eye-catching effects.
Covered topics include graphic and video file formats, selecting and managing color, titling and character generation, image manipulation, drawing, 3D modeling and animation, rotoscoping and others.
KnowledgePath Industries has a long track record of well-produced instructional titles on the topic of video production, and this title is no exception. Any apprentice computer graphics wizard would do well to study it thoroughly. 5
