Getting Media from the Camera to the Hard Drive
Capturing media from a camera is the first step in the video editing process. Vegas has a unique application that functions from within Vegas but can also function outside of Vegas as a separately accessible tool. A separate capture icon can be placed on the desktop if so desired. Browse for the
VideoCap50.exe application or find it directly at
C:\Program Files\Sony\Vegas 6\ for most installations. (You might need to search for the
Vegas40.exe file if Vegas was not installed to the
C:\ drive.) It is highly recommended that you launch the capture tool from within Vegas. If launched from Vegas, media captured in Video Capture is added automatically to the Media Pool in Vegas.
