Hi! I am a newcomer to this forum and to the world of video in general with some modest work under my belt. My issue seems to be a lack of imagination on things like interesting editing techniques or easy to apply special effects. I am working completely in the Adobe CS5 suite, if that matters.

I am on the lookout for some books or websites or plug in packages that can help me with this. Is there a site with any collections of interesting examples of these things with or without tutorials?

Thanks and looking forward to learning more and more about cinematography!

Have a look at http://videocopilot.net/

Plenty of tutorials to get stuck into there. JJ Abrams was so impressed with the site he gave Andrew Kramer the job of doing the Star Trek titles. Re-spect! :D

That is indeed a great site, thank you for the link. A lot of good software and demonstrations!

Any thing else like that from others? Some of those seem pretty advanced to me still.

Comes with a DVD with AE project files. Well worth it!

What are you planning to use these techniques for? Narratives? Documentaries? Experimental films?

I ask for a reason...
