No more Super-8 or 16mm film, no more VHS tapes (which are nearly impossible for the amateur to edit) - now it's all about digital video. All you need is a digital video camera and a decent computer with video-editing software, and any amateur home moviemaker can create great movies with ease.

Well, almost with ease. Making good movies - even home movies - still requires some basic knowledge of how the equipment works, how to set up good shots, how to use the editing software, and so on. And all that can be daunting to the beginner. That's where Digital Video For Dummies, 2nd Edition, comes in. Recently revised to cover the latest advances in digital video technology, this easy-to-understand guide can get you up and running quickly on your first digital video project.
