It’s a wrap: Build better video with Premiere Elements 8 for Windows

In Premiere Elements 8 for Windows Essential Training, instructor and videographer Jeff Sengstack shows how this application can be the only one needed to view and edit video files and share them with family and friends. Jeff shows how to start a new project, set up the workspace, and arrange clips on the Timeline for an initial video take. He teaches how to apply specialized video effects, like Motion Tracker and the Effects Mask tool, to build more than just an average family video. He also covers how to add narration, music, transitions, and titles to a final movie.

Meet three fantastic authors, straight from the recording booths at lynda.com

authorsthsweek

Clockwise starting at top: Jeff Sengstack, Simon Allardice, Curt Frye.

Straight from the recording booths this week, we have three FANTASTIC authors who may be familiar faces…

Jeff Sengstack, author of Premiere Elements 7 Essential Training, is back in the booth to bring us a few new and interesting courses that we will share with you soon!

Simon Allardice, all the way from Scottsdale (by way of Scotland), is in recording the highly anticipated iPhone SDK Essential Training. Simon is one of our original instructors from the Ojai classroom days, and recorded the UltraDev 4 course for us way back in 2002. We are thrilled he is finally able to make time in his busy schedule to get back in our booth!

Finally, Curt Frye, who released his first lynda.com course (Excel 2007: Financial Analysis) with us just this week (congrats Curt!), is in town recording two more greatly needed Excel courses: Excel 2007: Pivot Tables for Data Analysis and Excel 2008 for Mac: Pivot Tables for Data Analysis.

Thanks for coming back for more, guys! We look forward to seeing you in the booth again next time!
