Publisher's Note

This book was previously published under the title Apple Pro Training Series: Final Cut Pro 4. If you previously purchased that book, there is no need to purchase this revision: All the project files and exercises in the previous edition can be used with Final Cut Pro HD. For this edition, we have made minor revisions for the HD interface, but it is otherwise the same book.
