I searched from the Web and saw this book.

Seems the Head First series cover lots of areas.

Kathy knows a wide range of computer technologies, not just Java, but also multimedia techs...

Will "Head First Moviemaking" contains anything about audio editing? but as far as I see, there is no TOC available yet...

I'm more interested in Audio stuff rather than Video, since I got my own Home Studio and music composing is my only one hobby...

The book covers more audio than probably any other book on digital video--after all, you're not making silent movies! And it's the audio (especially the music and other ambient sounds) that tell you how to *feel* about what you're actually seeing.

But we don't assume that you're a musician, so we cover tools that are accessible to anyone wanting to put together soundtracks/music for their digital videos regardless of their musical ability . We cover Soundtrack, Garageband, SonicFire Pro (an *amazing* tool for creating soundtracks that fit exactly to your video, and can transition based on the *mood* that you've defined for the music).

Wow -- I didn't expect any questions on javaranch related to *that* book, but there you go

I'm not sure where we'll be discussing the book when it's released.
It's fun to work on though, when I need a break from Java code!

cheers,
Kathy

I am currently using Adobe Audition(Fomerly Syntrillium's Cool Edit) for my home studio... I've never tried SonicFire Pro or GarageBand... Are they nice? I'd better try them, when the book is released...

Whenever I need a break from Java code, I used to make own album...
U guys might want to taste my music at King Church Site... You will see samole songs there and my name is "Tha Gay" (My Native Name)... Hope you'll enjoy...
