I was recently looking at new Sony Computers and saw the Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 10.0 installed on one of them. It looked like a decent package and since I did not have software to make video slide shows from both stills and videos from our digital cameras I thought I would download the trial (which is 11.0) and see how it works. On my system it looks very nice, but I cannot seem to get it to do simple things.
I own a Canon 7D and my wife owns a Sony Cybershot T-990. While Vegas loads both jpgs and .MOV files produced by my Canon and the jpgs from my wife's T-990, it will not load the .mp4 video files created by my wife's camera. This seems odd to me since the camera is a Sony and the software is Sony, so I assume I am doing something wrong. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
While I can make videos from the stills from both cameras and the video from my camera and have figured out how to add a menu, I cannot find a way to edit the menu or create bullets on the menu to link to specific groups of photos. And the help file does not seem to be of much actual help. Normally for a vacation I group photos from both of our cameras by day and I would want to create a menu button so jump to each day in the video, but cannot find a way to do this.
Can anyone help me? Thank you in advance.
