I am presently using WMM 2.1 service pack and can use it well (not hard I know!)
However as my P.C is getting very old now (20th century) when I eventually have to upgrade I think it would be wise to start getting to grips with learning how to use Sony Vegas now whilst I am still using and can get things done with WMM. That way I can make a nice future transition to Vegas and leave WMM behind, as I know WMM can be limiting.
Now I know with all software that there are good version and not so good versions just like with windows as apparently Vista was not as good/stable as XP or Windows 7.
I am a long way from shooting in HD (lol!!!) and to be honest may never need to.
I have a Panasonic NVGS 400 and am more than happy with it.
My goal is to be able to edit picture/sound and usual editing stuff like transitions and add 2 levels of audio and video effects basically WMM can do what I need more or less without sound editing.
I am really interested in quality for uploading to You Tube as that is what my project/s are all about (ie) upload to you tube and then embed into wordpress sites.
As I am moving from WMM which of the below Vegas versions that I can get off Amazon U.k do you recommend for a newbee like me that would make a nice introduction to Vegas ??
I imagine getting HD versions is not necessary from what I have said and may overwhelm me with features I donít need to know ??
Anyway you guys have forgotten more than I know about Sony Vegas so I am in your capable hands.
So please help me get started with Vegas without getting information overload!!
Like I said main goal is export quality for you tube.
Vegas here I come!!! (Optimist)
