I really like Sony Vegas Pro better.
Just seems to be a bit more stable.
There’s a HUGE group of Vegas users here and elsewhere who are totally comfortable with that video editing program. Enough users that if you ever needed some information regarding a certain situation during your editing, you’d be able to get some knowledgeable answers fairly fast.
Luis is correct regarding the comparison. As with most any editing program, and based on budget limitations and overall editing needs, the right tool for you isn’t always the top of the line or most expensive. And especially if you’re already familiar with a program like Sony’s Vegas, then you should factor that into your production. While there are folks who jump platforms and/or programs, and are happy they did, others are smart as well to continue to grow with what they already know.
Thanks for the confirmation everyone. Based on an email I received and these posts, I now questions this person’s knowledge. If he can’t even compare apples to apples, who is he to be telling me I am using the wrong software. I think I’m going to stick with my gut and just use Vegas Movie studio.
XTR, A minister friend of mine uses Vegas Pro as well. He operates a Media ministry and uses video as his tool of choice. In fact I received my copy of Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 9 from him when he upgraded to Vegas Pro. Helikes it much better as well, but I’m not there yet. I’m a photographer by trade just learning video. Once I get comfortable with the Vegas I have I will spend the extra money and to upgrade.
Thanks for the information. This site is great for that.
Many folks get confused when comparing Vegas to other programs. Vegas combines many features that other non-linear editors leave out (requiring other programs) such audio editing for example.
We Vegas users tend to be feral about our NLE of choice but truth be told, find any NLE (and whatever group of support programs like After Effects, Audition, Encore, Sound Forge, whatever….) you feel comfortable using and perfect your skills with those.
