Having recently joined this excellent forum I have learned alot, and value the wealth of resources that is availed to me in the event I need questions answered re editing video. I noted with interest that I see that fellow forum viewers will post a question as to how to create this and that effect and usually include a video as an example. My question is since I have grasped the abilities to shoot, capture and edit and then burn my videos, is there a text that someone can recommend that show how to create such video effects. I am using APPro 1.5 and also APE 4.0. I am not looking for and easy out as to how to create effects as I will do trial and error , but i need at least how to get to the trial aspect of adding the multitude of effects. Any feedback to this matter and your replies are greatly appreciated.
