It’s out. Get it.
The description on Amazon is stupid (as of this writing anyway — here’s a better one). There’s nothing in this book about animating type, and it’s not for people trying to learn After Effects. It’s a hardcore film compositing book in the tradition of Brinkman’s and Wright’s, but unlike those it focusses specifically on real world how-tos, with numerous examples and color plates. For film professionals (or those aspiring/pretending to be), the chapter on light and color by eLin co-creator Brendan Bolles is worth the price on its own. And there's even a fun little chapter at the end by me, which you can bleach clean and use as a handy note-taking area.
