    Yes, that is exactly where I am right now, just trying to get my bearings with video editing. So for the short term, Studio seems to be a good way to get my feet wet. Does Vegas have specific advantages for the DVX that accounts for its popularity among DVX users?

      If budget is there you almost must have the ability to edit 24p. You have a kick ass camera, be a shame to not use the 24p

      Prem Pro, Vegas, FCP and Avid (with mojo, but big $$) can do th 24. Just boils down to what you want to buy and like.

      Like Barry noted - Download the trials and see what jumps out at you. The prices vary so that might help the choice. Vegas is the least expensive but still a great NLE

        Price point, for one. It's much less expensive than pretty much any other NLE and has all of the functionality.

        Also, Vegas was able to handle 24p earlier than most NLEs, with the exception of Blade, which no one seemed to like very much. People adopted early, got hooked, and there they stayed.

          Good idea. I will try downloading a trial version of Vegas and see how it goes. My only reluctance is that I am very new to video editing, and my impression was that the pro editing software like Vegas was very much more complex than consumer stuff and much more difficut to learn and use.

            I just went to download a trial version of Vegas 5 and it says that I will have access to all of the features except that requiring a license (MPEG, AC-3). Does this mean that I will be able to use all features of the software (my interest is to produce a 24P video), but will not be able to burn a dvd to see the results?

              Most likely not. DVDs are MPEG-2 format. Do you have DVD authoring/encoding software?

              Coming from Studio, you're actually in a fairly decent position to go into Vegas. I think you'll find the interfaces similar.

                Will I be able to create a dvd using the trial version (since they state on download page of Vegas that cannot use mpeg and ac-3 in trial version)?

                  Re: good all round editing software?

                  That's why I asked if you have any other DVD authoring software (besides Studio). If not, then no.

                    Oops, I missed your comment. The only dvd authoring software I have is what came with the Studio, so I guess I am out of luck. At least I can try out the Vegas and see how it works. I just downloaded this morning, and from the looks of the user manual, it will be much more complex than Studio. Do you have any idea whether I could expect to see any better video of audio quality producing dvd's from Vegas compared with Studio (assuming that everything else is the same)?

                      I'm guessing here because the last time I used Vegas was Ver. 4 and I havn't used Pinnacle but I see no reason why you can't export your finished clip from Vegas as an avi and then encode it with Pinnacle to DVD.

                              Actually David, Pinnacle 6 does edit in 24p now, but does not capture in 24P.
                              The reason I did not move up. However, it depends on what you are editing and doing. I use LE 5.62, because I do Weddings. It is more convenient because I can author my DVDs right from the timeline, plus the layout of the program is more organized than the some of the other prgrams. Also, most of our clients have NTSC tvs and have no clue about 24P. I sometimes shoot in 24P and have some other things I do in LE to get a film like look for highlight clips and stuff.

                              Studio 9 I use for basic transfers that need little to no editing. It is quick and convenient. It saves me time and makes me extra $$.

                              As a friend and I are planning on doing different things like music videos and hopefully filmmaking (documentaries, shorts) I am building another system for the Premiere Suite(PP1.5, Encore, Audition, & AE). That will make four computers.....I need to clone myself now to run them all.

                                As I've explained before, there's a 24p timeline in Edition 6, but it will not remove pulldown. You have to do that in another program. It makes Edition 6 functionally worthless for editing in 24p.

                                Other than that, I think it's a fine editing app.
