Cindy Shebly has been on the Flip bandwagon from the beginning, and along with Dany Byrne she has produced Flip Tips, a video lesson on how to use for and care for your Flip, as well as how to edit movies in Windows Movie Maker.
A full one hour class is included on this Flash encoded video CD ROM. A simple to use, indexed menu makes navigation easy. You can start, stop, skip ahead, or re-run a section without losing your place.
Potential purchasers should know that this CD will only run on a Windows-based computer, and the software editing portion of the instruction only covers Windows Movie Maker. Therefore, if you own a Mac, I can't recommend this CD. You can run the CD on your Mac vis Parallels or other emulator, but the information about Movie Maker won't be of any help to the Mac user. Ideally, I'd love to see this CD in a Mac version, using iMovie as the editing tool that is demonstrated.
That said, if you own a Windows-based computer and a Flip video camera, I'd recommend this CD. The use and care instructions are good, and the editing instruction will help the beginner get their movies whipped into shape in no time The explanations are clear and easy to understand. And if you want to use your Flip to make movies to upload to You Tube, the settings information for You Tube included is invaluable.
You can purchase this CD from the authors at Ghost Leg Media. Price is $19.95.
