Everyone at Peachpit Press, whose expertise and professionalism allowed this book to become as good as it is. Special thanks to Marjorie Baer for bringing together the great team I worked with: editor Karyn Johnson; production editor Gloria Marquez; copy editor Rebecca Rider; proofreader Liz Welch; compositor Owen Wolfson; indexer Julie Bess; and technical editor Jeff Sauer.
Everyone working with the Liquid Edition development team including: James; Ali; Matthias; Markus; Jens (the DVD man); Anne; Claudia; Ziggy; HaPe; Kurt; Klaus; Manfred; Alex; Dan; Mike; and a special thanks to Marcel Stiller for being on call for those 1000 and 1 technical questions I had for him. Also, I'd like to personally thank the external Toledo Webboard testers for helping to squash those bugs and for doing such a good job of finding them.
A special thanks also to Semir Nouri of JVC Europe for providing me with an HDV camera.
I'd also like to thank my family and friends for letting me share their images that appear throughout this book; and I'd like to thank everyone who contributed to my general well-being and happiness during the production of this book.
And last but not least I'd like to thank my wife for having the presence of mind to encourage me back to writing.
