No need to gamble. Download the extensive description of the new features. Or, even better, download a demo version and try it out yourself.

Re-Render

>>>>Troxel One thing you may want to try is to render to a single DV-AVI file first, load that new file on the timeline of a new project, and then render that to whatever format you are wanting. >>>>

Wouldn't this create a noticeable loss of resolution?

The scoop on Vegas5 books by DSE

I can't find much info on Instant Vegas 5. Is there enough of a difference to warrant another workbook? (from vegas 4 workbook to vegas 5 workbook)

"Record Time" in status bar?

What's the "record time" numbering in very bottom right of the screen in the status bar. Sometimes I have another # to the bottom left too. I'm sure it's something simple I just can't figure out what it stands for?!

The "record time" in the lower right-hand corner is the amount of audio you could record on the specified hard drive.

You sure it's not "Completed: xxx of xxx"?

I see that when there are some tasks being performed (such as when pre-rendering or doing a PTT or adding new files to the timeline and the "audio" image must be built). In that case, it's just an indicator of how many tasks there are to do and how many have been done.

text roll does look very good

Hi Folks,

Sorry to be a bother, but I wonder if this is something that other folks are dealing with. I have been creating a title roll for the end of a project, and frankly it looks terrible. Is there a type face that is much better than others. I've used the default font (ariel 20 pt) and it doesn't look very good. I've tried Times Roman, which I've used alot with a nice drop shadow in other programs. It looks worse. Help!!

thanks a bunch!

Milt, what don't you like about it? Is it terrible cause there are artifacts, or just aesthetically that font isn't pleasing to look at?

I guess it's not actually as bad as I thought. It's still not wonderful, but when rendered a short test with a couple of different fonts, it looked much better than my preview of it looked.

It still seems fairly simple, and I would love to be able to put the titles for folks in a box, and have them slide in front the side etc.

Mostly I'm looking for title effects that you see on PBS - I'm not really an MTV kinda guy.

Basically when I say terrible, what I should have said was that they just weren't very punchy. Not bold enough - kindy thin and wimpy. I suspect that I just need to practice with a bunch of different fonts, sizes, drop shadows, outlines - all that stuff, and I'll come up with something that sings to me.

Another question though - are there CG plugins or other programs that generate text and effects that can be combined with Vegas?

thanks a bunch,
Milt Lee
