I got to the point where I need to ask someone more experienced questions about SONY Vegas Movie Studio Platinum Pro. I do a bit of video editing just for my own pleasure and needs and so far, after trying few other editing applications, found Video Studio 11.5 from Corel just the right software for me. It does the job intuitively and doesnít have any extras you would as a amateur never used.
But then I heard of SONY Vegas Movie Studio Platinum Pro and had a go with it and discovered its beauty in many parts of editing process. But there are two things that really put me off and havenít found any answers to them yet.
1/ Before I start editing I tend to capture my videos as a single mpg2 file without chapter detection and automatic scene split. It means I have one big (3-4GB) file and that is my source for further editing. Now using Vegas I didnít find any option at all to split long movie into small sections that you could have somewhere within the application organized, give them names, have them sorted in separate folders, and just drag and drop them whenever you find place for them in your editing process. Thatís in my opinion, a basic stuff and Video Studio has got it.
I did found option to use Regions and Marks but that is not the same thing, because this make sense for short movies where you donít do too much of a scene splitting and you sort of keep overview of what scenes you have available.
2/ Other thing I would found really beneficial to find an answer to is whether you can merge scenes together once you split the up. That would be so useful and would make things much easier.
If anyone knows answer those issues please let me know. Thanks Ondrej
