About High Definition Survival Guide
Created by Apple Certified Pro instructor Noah Kadner, the DVD provides training for digital video professionals working with a wide variety of high definition cameras.

"We wanted to demystify the huge array of high definition formats being used today in production," says Kadner. "Final Cut Pro editors are often faced with projects coming into their editing room from different producers, cinematographers and camera formats like DVCPROHD, HDV and XDCAM. Our disc helps editors sort through the clutter and learn the best settings for the camera operator and for post-production in Final Cut Pro. The goal is to spend more time being creative and less time figuring out the workflows."

Topics include Panasonic P2 Workflow, Sony XDCAM HD, HDV in 1080i and 720p, JVC ProHD 24p, Panasonic AVC-Intra, DVCPROHD, HD to SD DVD Downconversion, Export to Apple Color, Export for Web and Export for 35mm Film.
