Learning to Legalize

I just picked up the book Encyclopedia of Color Correction: Field Techniques Using Final Cut Pro. It's part of the excellent Apple Pro Training Series. I'll do a full review when I'm done but I had to note the excellent entry on Broadcast Legality and the following entry on Broadcast Safe Filter.

These two topics confuse hobbyists and professionals alike. This book does a better job explaining these topics than anything I've read anywhere else, ever. The author, Alexis Van Hurkman, also correctly points out the deficiencies of relying on the Broadcast Safe filter too heavily.

These two entries alone are worth the price of the book, especially if you find this topic perpetually confusing.
