Get the Sony Vegas. The help files and manual are pitiful and a disgrace. Luckily, you are in the right place to learn what you need to know. I've gotten far more useful information from this forum than was even in the manual or help files. This includes how to do stuff that isn't even mentioned in the Sony files.
I hope someday to learn enough about something to be able to repay the help this place has given me. Anyone want o know something about sailing or martial arts? LOL
