Google is your friend. There are plenty of tutorials on basic and advanced feautures of any video editing program you can think of. I learned by trying it out, I didn't learn from posting in here.

Sony vegas [Any version, shoot for 6+]



Tried one by Adobe at school (Not sure on version) and just hated how it was set out/how you did stuff. Perhaps that's because I'm used to Vegas.

Paino, I merged your thread to this thread. You may find some answers within. There are some free video editing programs (most of those I can think of are for linux), but I don't think any of them match the quality of the pay programs.

If you have a mac, it comes with iMovie, which is quite decent. If you get more serious about it, you'll appreciate something more complex. All the big video editing packages also have a home version which is fairly inexpensive, especially if you are a student. They have most of the power of their bigger siblings at a fraction of the cost.

Remember, almost all of what makes a good video has more to do with tasteful decisions and good filming than fancy editing. Even windows movie maker can get you there, albeit with a few extra headaches along the way.

If you are at school they can do deals with Adobe and microsoft and the likes and you can get huge discounts. I can Photoshop CS3 for £200 not £1200! Its really good, peolpe like RM do it and stuff.

Rendering videos in Vegas
« Reply #53 on: October 13, 2008, 09:46:32 pm »
*BUMP!*

So, I started using Sony Vegas (7.0) but I have a problem with rendering video's. I import my clips the way they are when I upload them to my pc from my Sony camcorder (MPEG-2, right??). After a little bit of editing etc. I decide to render and see what it will look like full screen... but whatever ''output-filetype'' I choose (.mpg/.mp4/.mov/.avi/.wmv/. *and so on*) it just doesn't work. The video renders in less than 1second and it results in a 0seconds unviewable file. I also tried all kinds of different ''templates'' etc. when choosing an output-fileype, but I just can't get it done.

*heeelp, I need somebody, heeeelp, not just anybody, heeeelp* :-*

Have you tried unchecking the box "render loop region only" in the render as menu? You might have selected only a very small loop region by accident. Try unchecking that box and tell me what happens if you render.

That probably was the problem :)

Is 8 minutes rendering for a 45s vid usual?

That depends on the output and the specs of your computer. Uncompressed avi doesn't take that long and that's what you want anyways :)

Ok I tried another .avi-template and it renders way faster now.

One last technical question though (the editing wise stuff I can figure out myself :) ): When I render as .avi I get a problem with ''lines''. I think this has something to do with deinterlacing (or something like that ::)). Has this something to do with the template I chose when I rendered (I think I picked PAL DV for the fast render, default and NTSC were veeeery slow). I can't really find the reason for this ''lines'' by using google >____>.

Yup, that means your video is interlaced and that's perfectly healthy. You will need to deinterlace and compress your video before you put it on the internet. Deinterlacing with the bob+weave method described at www.100fps.com - which is all you need to know about (de)interlacing - gives the best results. You want to compress with H.264.
