I see that Creative cow is having a special on the Serious Effects and Compositing DVD by Andrew Kramer. The webpage about it doesn't list the table of contents. Can anyone tell me what the titles of the videos on the DVD are? I just want to know if it covers stuff I already know or not.
Thanks in advance.
