"Hardly anyone realizes that Blender even is a video compositing and non-linear editing tool (in addition to its modeling, rendering, and animation capabilities). There are few, if any, books available on how to use it for that purpose, so Roger Wickes' book is much needed. It contains an enormous amount of very useful information.

"It's important for me to say that, because while the book contains lots of useful, well-explained information, it also contains a lot of dross which has to be tolerated or ignored. So this review may come off as a bit of a nit-picking session. In my opinion, the author spent too little time organizing and trimming the fat from his own prose, and the editors were basically asleep at the switch."
