Well basically it is not out yet. It has only been released to beta
testers and partners of Microsoft. So testing hasn't really begun
for the consumers yet. You've survived this long on SP1 so I would
not upgrade to SP2 for a couple of weeks at least.

A lot has changed in the service pack. I so no reason for Vegas
not to work, but I would not advice against testing if you do not
have a very good knowledge of Windows and problem solving.

SP2 is a bit overhyped and I'm pretty sure a lot will still work.
The major thing for consumers is that the Firewall is now enabled
on all connections per default. This can cause some problems if
you already are running a third party firewall or don't have one.

The other biggest change has to do with network security but
a single user system will not see anything of this. This network
security will only hit you when you are doing DCOM which a lot
of people ARE NOT doing anyway.

Why am I then saying you should wait? Because you can never
be sure. Microsoft can't test everything in the world and errors
or problems can always crop up. Again, you have survived this
long on SP1 so just wait a bit longer.

I'm gonna do some tests myself this week and I might test Vegas
as well, although I'm not to keen on installing it on my main
machine just yet. I need the ability to do some work!

According to Sony, they have been testing it for quite a while and have not discovered any problems. If you DO install it and discover a problem, they want to know about it immediately.

Great work!

I really love the end scene with the bell and the overcast sky ( did you film like 2 minutes and then sped it up ? )
Exactly- then I applied a small zoom using pan crop.

The in-zoomed-eye to white flash -> forrest is also very nice!
Thank you- yeah I love that "flash" transition.

One thing that I noticed:

First scene when you super impose the brick wall on the church - I think it is a bit "quick" I'd like the bricks to come in a bit smoother.
Thanks for the input- I'll take a look at the timing of that transition again. Sometimes you get too close to these projects and miss things.

He's not talking about "bleeds".

I get that, too, Stewart...
The sound gets from left, to right, and then to the lfet again, even though you panned it to the right. I have no idee why this happends :(

Welcome.
Our kickoff meeting is scheduled Sunday, 4 PM, Aug 22 at the Food Court at Union Station, because it's accessable for just about everyone by Metro and/or car. I believe the Red Line gets you there if you prefer not to drive.
Email me and I'll pass your name on to Mickey. We want a relaxed atmosphere so everyone can discuss what sort of group we want to be. Everyone can get something to eat and contribute their ideas. We will also be open to suggestions as to where to meet on a regular basis. Something accessable, cheap or free and has good electrical hookups.

The groups isn't just for those who live close to DC, but for those that work in and around DC. All are invited. We will have members that live in Fredericksburg and Chantilly.

In general, unless you really need a feature or fix in new software, don't upgrade. Everyone assumes software development will produce improvements. Just about the
only thing you can count on is an increase in the size
of the software. New software is a combination of
previous bugs and features and new bugs and features.

(Personal rant)
A prime example is Pinnacle Studio9. It has the same
critical bugs of Studio8 (Audio/Video out of sync, lack
of project time estimation, rerenders existing MPEG2
files, butt-slow editing performance with
more than 15 chapters, etc.), but comes in a shiny new
box, with new graphics and "bonus" content, and
lots of little things to click on that ask you for your
credit card.

I like the camera movement on the close-up of the flowers while leaving the statue and background stationary. Must have taken some time to perfect.

Nice audio, where is it from, and is it royalty free, or dare I ask? I am interested in licensing some decent tracks, but can't seem to find anything worth while at any reasonable price.

Just well done, I really enjoyed it.

DSE - Vegas for Multitrack Audio Recording

I have used Vegas for mulitple multitrack audio projects, however the source files were always recorded on a pro audio multitrack recorder and converted to .wav files before being brought into Vegas. What I am looking into is whether Vegas will allow you to map dedicated audio inputs to specific audio tracks on the timeline for recording real-time from an audio interface such as the Edirol FA-101 8-track firewire interface (http://www.edirol.com/products/info/fa101.html). basically, I want to record 8 discreet audio tracks from external audio sources at the same time. Will Vegas do this with the appropriate interface hardware?

Your input is appreciated!

I am not DSE, but can tell you that I have recently done excalty what you are describing: 8 tracks live to the timeline...for three hours.

No problem. I used a MOTU 896HD.
