11 November 2002, 04:33 PM
Hi you all, I like this forum. Some of you seem to have nice job or you are into filming or some editing your own.
If you know a good book for special effects like to Matrix or some like that kind of effects, I would be glad to know.
ISPN would be nice to have if you have or a site where to find and se what the book is all about.

I do my self a short film, it is on dv, I'm using Canon XL-1 and mixing it with 35mm slide film to add nice color picture.
I do as well 3D landscape to it so it looks realistic.

Pdf is ok too. I'm looking for more stuff to learn; I have not going any school but learning by tutorials and all you out there. :)

Thanks for all your help and hope to get one nice book as well.

I suggest you go to and look for a book called "The Art and Science of Digital Compositing". Its a great place to start.
