Thread: Is Vegas 7 that much better than 6?

  1. Default Is Vegas 7 that much better than 6?

    I'm new to this and have kind of established that Sony Vegas is for me. Obviously you can pick up Vegas 6 at a resonable cost now, my question is will 6 suit for what I want to do? :-

    1) Edit both the footage from the Sony HDD camcorder & the Archos / bullet cam
    2) Be able to smudge out numberplates etc
    3) Have the ability through the software or an add on, to overlay a timer / stopwatch for lap timing
    4) Possibly be able to do picture in picture for front & rear facing views
    5) Add titles, text overlays audio tracks etc

    6 will be fine. 7 has much better hdv support and some nice touches that make editing smoother but 6 is still a dam fine editor.

    You will need additional software or to create the stopwatch overlay yourself (which you can do in Vegas - it's just a bit tedious). You might manage to use timecode and masking/pan&crop but you'll be limited in terms of formatting.
