Sony Vegas Pro 10

Video Description

Sony's 'Vegas Pro 10' is the latest update to the extremely popular professional digital video editing software. In this course, students are shown important user interface features and their positions on the main Vegas screen. Then, using the included work files, author Mark Struthers goes on to demonstrate how to produce a complete DVD from the timeline. Along the way, audio is scrutinized as is the use of the integrated mixer. Editing functions are inspected and tips and tricks such as track management feature throughout. As the student gains more knowledge, the course illustrates how to use some of the more esoteric functions such as video rotation and using titles as opening and closing credits.
