    None. Learn to use the tools built within Vegas first. Then decide what you need to be able to do that you cannot do.
    The script packages from VASST and Edward Troxel can be very useful though (assuming you have Vegas Pro)

    What things should i start to make?
    Whatever you decided to make films for. Why did you start to make movies? If you feel what you want to make is too ambitious, tell us what you want to make and we might be able to suggest some ideas to get you working towards your goal.

    Failing that, make a film about anything and everything. But you'll do best with a plan. Try to avoid just shooting random clips and thinking you'll paste them together "somehow".

    I would also appreciate some tips that is good for a newbie
    Find things you like in other people's films, try to work out why you like it and then try to do the same in your own film (even if it's just a tiny film to try out that idea).

    If you need help (how do I achieve this effect?) just ask. But please don';t take offence if it;s suggested that the techniques are too advanced for you. Practice some other stuff and re-visit the idea a few months later. There is an awful lot of learning to do. It can't all be done with simple "how to?"

    Probably our most advanced Vegas member has been using Vegas daily for ten years and even he still discovers new ways of doing stuff.
