Ian’s How to Index

In this 3-DVD set, Casablanca expert Chet Davis walks you through the entire Casablanca Operating System, pointing out not only the new features in Smart Edit 8/Bogart 2, but also tips for both the new user and veteran alike. View this DVD near your editor to maximize all the options in the new Operating System. Chet’s familiarity with the software coupled with his expert teaching style make this tutorial a valuable resource for the full time video professional and the video hobbyist alike.

You'll learn all about the new feature rich and potentially confusing menu in the Media Manager with the Casablanca Expert. Even long-time Casablanca users find this powerful new tool confusing as there are new menu structures and lots of options.

You have two options on the DVD: First, Chet walks you through the menus in a sequential fashion covering the options as they appear.

Secondly, Chet takes you through some specific operations to help you learn the process you need to know - when you need to know it.

The DVD menu allows you to access the content as you see fit.
