Graphic Cards and Vegas

How do graphic cards effect editing with Vegas Video? That is, is there any advantage to buying a high end graphics card for Vegas Video? Thanks.

There is NO advantage to buying a high-end video card. Most people DO like one that will handle multiple monitors, though.

User Groups in Denver???

Hey I'm headed to Denver - end of October and would love to connect with some Vegas 6 users - or one that has used it a bunch to talk about how the program works, and do some hands on with the program.

Anybody out there from Denver? Maybe I should search the profiles.

Thanks,
Milt Lee

VASST Toronto tour - thanks, Spot and the rest of VASST

Hi folks.

DSE and Co. came to Toronto, Canada to present the HDV VASST tour/Sony Vegas 6 training seminar - it was very well attended and a blast.

This was the first time I met Spot and wow, what an impression the VASST guys make! It was an amazing presentation through and through and I know any time these guys hit town, I gotta be there!

DSE was surprised at the high proportion of Toronto attendees who were "long-time" Vegas users and it's looking like a Toronto Vegas users group might be set up...

As if VASST needs the endorsement... well, I'll say it anyways...
Cheers to you all - if you're interested in keeping up with the latest and the greatest in the industry, VASST's seminars are a must. I'm grateful to Sony Canada to have helped make this event possible - Sebastian and Brian, thanks for helping to make it happen! Canadians deserve more VASST!!!

Cheers!

Mark, it was great to meet you and the other Vegas users both new and experienced, in Toronto. What a great group of folks. The only thing that could have been better is if we'd have had a larger room so folks weren't quite so cramped. We just didn't expect that sort of attendance.
Looking forward to coming up again soon for some other presentations.

Adding in H.264 codec

Ok im tired of the Main Concept MPEG2 codec. I want to install the H.264 MPEG2 codec. Is there a way to do this and have Vegas export using this codec? Thanks

I believe that Sony will have to add that in a future version. As of now, you could frameserve from to a standalone encoder (such as MainConcept).

debugmode frameserver is free and like Ed said, the best way to go.

http://www.debugmode.com/frameserver/
I use this to encode with Canopus Procoder rather than main concept.

UltimateS resource

As a frequent user of the 'lower thirds' option within UltimateS I decided to build myself a set of clips that showed each 'third' in action. It occured to me that other UltimateS users might be interested in them, so I've thrown them up on a quick webpage.

Of course you need to have your own copy of UltimateS to implement the thirds in your clips, they simply illustrate the final outcome.

Be warned, they are big files - I did try zipping them but it didn't seem to shrink them all that much.

You can download them here:

Dolby 5.1 to 2.0

I did a search first but no luck.
My question is: If I do a 5.1 mix but want to change
it to 2.0 later on, am I required to totally remix it
at 2.0, or is there some other way that Vegas will
automatically convert it to 2.0, such as by just
changing project properties?

H.264 is not an MPEG-2 codec, it is an MPEG-4 codec. If you were hoping to use the H.264 codec to encode video for DVD-Video, then I'm afraid you will be disappointed. Only MPEG-2 encoded files can be put on DVD-Video disks.

Vegas 6.0c is out!!

http://www.sonymediasoftware.com/dow...p2.asp?DID=579

You can now import video from a DVD Camcorder disc. From the File menu, choose Import, and then choose DVD Camcorder Disc. Standard and VR-mode discs are supported.

You can now export AVC (also called H.264 or MPEG-4 AVC) video to a USB-connected PSP(PlayStation®Portable). From the Tools menu, choose Export to PSP(PlayStation®Portable).

Lots of bug fixes too.
