I'm not sure exactly what you mean, but every aspect of these shorts was accomplished in Vegas:

It's pretty powerful, way more versatile than it might first appear.

Hi Jayson,

There are a few examples of some effects in use in a short teaser clip on my business home page vIT using bump maps to add lighting effects, colouration, various transitions, light rays, pan & crop, etc. . There are a couple of other clips dotted around the site as well, all created in Vegas.

Here's a short piece I have just finished for a client in which I have used some effects (glow, blur, cookie cutter, some 3d, various transistions), again all done in Vegas (but I did use MB Looks as well, which is a Vegas plugin but not part of the Vegas suite) http://www.videoit.uk.com/client_vid..._v502avnet.wmv

And for extreme effects use you could look at YouTube - 'Spaceship' by Craydle

Should give you an idea of some of the things you can do. I have no doubt that there are far better clips that others can show you!

Ian . . .

btw, I love Josh's Blisterine!

Here's my two cents - a heavily effected short clip as a band promo.

Bmmchk Live Performance on Vimeo

In addition to the plugins that are included with Vegas Pro 8 I also use Boris FX and Magic Bullet Looks. However roughly 75% of what was done in this clip is all straight from Vegas. Most of the effects are keyframed.

Sounds like you liked the possibilities.

Believe me, it's the tip of the iceberg compared to some work I have seen using Vegas. With time and patience you can achieve even far more advanced effects.

All the best.

To clarify, which version did you download and/or buy? There are four different versions of Vegas. I have only ever used the professional versions, most currently Vegas Pro 8. As well I will mention that I have added plugins that do not come with Vegas Pro 8 as already mentioned (Boris FX, Magic Bullet Looks 1.1).

To clarify further, what features are not active?

I downloaded Pro-8, this is the same that I also purchased.

It just seems that many icons are not lit when I open the software, I would say maybe 25% are lit, the rest are greyed out.

Well, you would have to clarify some more. Some may appear "greyed out" because they're currently turned off. Others may be "greyed out" because they're not currently usable given what you have selected/on the timeline. For example "delete track" would not be a valid option if there were not tracks so it would be "grayed out".

If you have Vegas Pro 8, rest assured that you have ALL the features.
