Floris, I'm not sure which post you're replying to, but the recommendations for Premiere and Vegas (and any NLE) is the same. Render/scratch to a disc other than a system drive.

Ok, then I already have the correct settings. Another question I have is regarding audio. Is it possible to mute the audio track for a selection of that track? Like I have a 60 minute video with audio. On the second video track, I place a 2 minute clip. During this clip, I want to mute the audio of the master video track. I cannot find instructions on how to do this.

Insert a volume envelope. Add points and adjust the volume as needed using that envelope.

Thanks Edward! Sorry for all the questions but Vegas is a little bit harder to find information on then most other programs. I have all 7 VASST Absolute Vegas Training DVDs as well as Douglas Spotted Eagle's book on Vegas 6 (haven't completed them yet). I am currently doing a project and this is something I really needed to know. I normally like to learn a program the normal way and then start with a project but I was forced to this time because my other program (Premiere) kept crashing continously.

What I want to do is the following: I am shooting a theater play right now. I only have one camera and it is very low-budget so I am shooting multiple nights so I have some different camera angles. But that creates a problem with the sound as actors do not talk in exactly the same pace neither to they speak the same words each night. Then there is a small orchestra that also starts and stops at slightly different times. So yes, this is a nightmare.

I have one show that I have shot from one place and which is basically a master-scene. In this master scene, I want to place close-up shots from two different angles. What I have done now is insert regions into these clips (the master scene is two files, the other two nights are like 6 files -- from 2 to 8GB in length). I insert these regions on a secondary videotrack.

Basically I am trying to find out if I am working in the smartest way or that you would recommend a different approach. I do not ask for a detailed explanation I only need to know where and for which terms to look in the manual/DSE book/or on the training DVDs. So basically:

1st Night
- Two tapes, each file measures 8GB
2nd Night
- Different perspective, 8 files with different sizes
3rd Night
- Different perspective, 6 files with different sizes
(this is the way Vegas captures them with scene-detection disabled)

Is it recommend to work with regions or subclips? And what is the best way to handle the audio? If i use the audio of night 1 then I have dubbing problems as there are slight, but very noticable variances in dialoque.

On a side-note: I really like the program and I have been working with it for about two-weeks now and it really works like a tank. My system was not responding once and when I was about to ctrl + alt + del the program it started working again (I found out it was building peaks at the moment when I hit save or another similair button somewhere).

Thanks everyone for helping me out learning this program.
