I purchased the 2 DVD Vegas 4.0 Tutorial by Gary Kliener and am really impressed. Talk about getting you up to speed. I think I learned more in 2 nights than in 3 weeks scewing around with it.

Sounds as if you do have experience, and that alone should be a huge benifit to you. I am a novice and have a pretty good grasp of Vegas already. I'm sure there is alot more to learn, but what I know now is second nature already.

Gary's DVD set is definitely good and highly recommended http://www.vegastrainingandtools.com

DSE also has a DVD set and book

You can also look at my newsletters http://www.jetdv.com/tts

First recommendation: forget what you know about FCP. You'll do it in a different way in Vegas. However, Vegas IS very logical in how it does things.

Neo, get ready to step out of the Matrix. lol

...at least that's what it felt like for me learning Vegas. I had to drop almost everything that I learned in the past 2 years working with Premiere. You'll be glad you did- the things that make absolutly no sense at first will begin to make sense...you'll start to see, as Edward mentioned, how logical it really is.

Visual training will definitly speed up the process, but be prepared for the most difficult NLE transition you could ever possibly take. In the end you'll see the beauty of it- and who knows...maybe you'll stay. Good luck- keep us informed on your thoughts/opinions as you learn it.

Thanks,

All newer versions of Vegas (4.0b-and up) handle HD footage. The Vegas+DVD simply adds DVD Architect (a DVD authoring program), and invaluable AC-3 encoding.

John,

You made my day. Glad you got a lot out of the DVDs.

Is the AC-3 encoding, the surround codec, or is it just a stereo version?

The AC-3 encoder included with Vegas+DVD is an AC-3 5.1 encoder. It can also encode AC-3 stereo.

Thanks

Thanks to all those that helped me with my questions, I've ordered the Vegas 4 Acedemic Version, and hopefully it will be here in a week or so. Thanks to Peter Seiben for the link for Overseas buyers.

So now I wait, then start the learning curve.

Thanks again All,

Andy

Weird DVDA problem

I burned a movie using DVDA 1.0b and like so many other times, the menu came up without a hitch.

I select to play a movie and the DVD player stops! I reload the DVD and the other menu selections work fine, just this one movie.

Any ideas?

Crashing When Scrubbing

My computer continues to crash when scrubbing in Vegas (d build), and I cannot get it to stop. The error messages state that I am either out of memory or that it can't read from some specified memory location. The machine has 1 Gb of Cosair ECC RAM that has never given me problems. This problem persists no matter how large or small the file I edit. The existence or non-existence of a page file on an independent SATA drive has had no effect. I have tested the drives, and they can sustain read/write speeds of about 40 Mb/s (all Maxtor SATA hdds). In addition, I increased the latency of the RAM timings to try to increase stability, and still no solution has been reached.

If you have any idea on why I am having this problem, please help me.

Thanks,
Brad

There's a few things you can try such as trying a different player, burning another copy and see if it works, burn on a different media, try burning from a different program, try re-rendering that one file, try rebuilding the project in case of a bad build. Unfortunately, these things can be tough to trace down.

I've been trying to trace it down but as you said, it's a difficult thing to do. I've downloaded the latest DVDA from Sony and in the process of preparing and burning a new instance.

I've tried different media, it works on 2 other players but doesn't on the newest one (highest compatibility as well).
