Movie making software - Vegas style

  alfo 21:08 02 Jan 2006

Has anyone any experience of Sony Vegas Moviestudio or Video 6? I'm looking for something better than Pinnacle but Vegas seems almost unheard of this side of the Atlantic and there are few dealers. Is it worth the change?

Vegas is probably the best dv editing suite there is. I've tried them all, including Pinnacle. It's got the least errors and is the most versatile and powerful. The support formum is extremely informative and friendly too.

Michelle - Three questions on your reply?

1. If Vegas is best how much is it?

2. In your experience which is second best. I use Studio Version 943 and apart from the odd crash/freeze its not bad for video conversion to DVD?

3. Can you give us a link to the Vegas formum?

Thanks David

It was good reports on the Pinnacle forums @ (from disgruntled Studio 10 users!) which made me curious but I have not found much evidence of Vegas in the UK. Obviously I don't want to waste money on upgrading a duff Studio 9 if there is something better out there. Vegas Movie Studio+DVD6 costs £55 - around £80 depending where you look with more expensive options available. Vegas 6 is nearer £300 I think but classed as a "professional" bit of kit.

have used moviestudio since it was released as videofactory by sonic foundry. now owned by sony, moviestudio comes with dvd architect. best ordered as a web download. can download fully working trial, except no saving/burning.

the support forums are on par with pc advisor, and that's saying something!

all edits/fx etc rendered in real time, and the whole operation is done in a traditional linear tape editing fashion. it is, for me, the quickest, most efficient, and most reliable video editor possible.

peerless, and unsurpassed. i like it. lots.
