Dear Charley,

The thumbnails on the timeline will disappear if you minimize the timeline (in other words compress it vertically.)

Just expand the timeline (event) vertically and the thumbnails will reappear.

Your best bet is to call them. E-mails seem to be taking over TWO WEEKS at the moment.

Windows XP Media Center compatability

Does anyone know if Vegas 4.0 and above are compatable with Windows XP Media Center? I'm thinking of getting an HP laptop, and don't know if I should go XP or with the additional features of Media Center.
Thanks

Well, that was certainly all I needed. Just can't figure how it got turned off. I wasn't in there touching things.

Thanks so much, Ed.

Charley- that with the other stories you've been telling me...I'm convinced. Your computer is posessed! Time for an upgrade. Hmmm Dual Core?!

Hawaii Vegas Users Group

Hey guys, I don't know if I am allowed to post this but I'll give it a try anyway. We have recently started up a website for the Hawaii Vegas Users Group; on the site we have a small portion for a forum that we are trying to get started. Our group comprises of a 50/50 mix of amateur and pro editors so I am sure that we will be able to help with any camera or vegas editing questions you may have.

Also if there are any people who are on or plan to be on the island of Oahu who would be interested in coming to our meeting please feel free contact us either on our site or email me.

Thanks

Greg

Assuming that you're familiar with Video Event FX in general, the one you want is Sony Borders. Very straightforward to use.

Flipping video...

Hello all,

No I'm not angry at my camera. hehe.

With all of the talk of homemade 35mm adapters for videocameras (ie: micro35) the guerilla versions need to have their video flipped right side up.

So. How would I do that in Vegas without compromising video quality? ie: no rerendering, etc?

Thanks for the help.

sincerely,

ian

any change u make to video WILL require rendering.. irrespective of the NLE u use.. whether it be realtime thru an RTx or rendered through vegas.. it WILL be reprocessed...

as for flipping, its quite simple.. just go to either track motion, or event pan crop and u can literally click and drag from the bottom line up to where the top line begine, jsut make sure maintain aspect is selected...

I do alot of low to ground shoots with a tiny minidv camera mounted to a 501 head with a long neck (for weight = stability) as the footage is upside down, i use this method to flip back to the normal

Im curious as to what elements you would find useful in media centre pertaining to video editing? Im just wondering

as for your question, from what i understand it doesnt

Post your Vegas work

I'm a user of Premiere Pro, but when i look at Vegas it's seems interesting to me. I want to see some works edited in vegas. To make a decision if I stay in Premiere or changed to Vegas.
Vegas look an easy editor but the part that interest me it's the power of the software. Because I don't want to invest time learning Vegas and at the end don't use it.

Thanks
