Acknowledgments

Thanks to the Peachpit Press people: executive editors Marjorie Baer and Nancy Davis; production editor (and personal favorite) Connie Jeung-Mills (and her personal favorite, compositor Owen Wolfson); copy editor Haig MacGregor; Jill Marts-Lodwig, Lisa Theobald, and Kelly Ryer, the editors of the previous editions, who built a fine foundation for this edition; and an extra helping of thanks to Tonya Engst, the tenacious but tender editor of this edition. Organized and witty—you can't beat that.

Thanks to Ghretta Hynd and Jim Churchill for appearing in the book illustrations. Jim really isn't that stiff, but Ghretta really is a great yoga teacher.

Thanks to my dad, Jon Brenneis, for generously allowing the use of images that appear in this book.

Thanks to the whole Final Cut Pro team at Apple Computer, particularly Brian Meaney, Erin Skitt, John Malm, Susan Marshall, and Paul Saccone—genuinely kind, helpful people who work very hard.

Thanks to my collaborator and friend Brett Spivey, who concocted the compositing and special effects chapters with me.

Thanks to Lauren Ward (sharp eyes, sharp mind, sharp pencil) for all the great help.

Thanks to all the men and women of the Final Cut Pro discussion forums: 2-pop.com, LAFCPUG.org, and Creative Cow. You lead the FCP community by example, and I am indebted to you. Keep posting.

Finally, thanks to a group of very important people who defy classification: Michael Wohl, Andrew Baum, Charles McConathy, Cawan Starks, Ross Jones, Philip Hodgetts, Josh and Michelle Mellicker, Larry Jordan, Elina Shatkin, Tom Wolsky, Bill Davis, Kevin Monahan, Michael Horton, Ken Stone, Ned Soltz, Lowell Kay, Michael Rubin, Steve Martin, Ramy Katrib, Ben Gardiner, Nick Meyers, and Fred Huff.

Did I mention Marjorie Baer? I did? Well, let's do her again. Thanks, MEB.
