5.0 out of 5 stars Great "hands on" book! 28 Nov 2012
By C. Bryant - Published on
FULL DISCLOSURE: I was a Technical Reviewer on this book. That being said, I would not put my name on something that I did not fully stand behind, and this book is one of those things. For anyone looking to learn Sony Vegas, this really is an excellent source to do that. Although the book is geared towards Vegas Pro 11, if you have version 10 or even a more consumer-grade version (such as Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD), you will still be utilizing the vast majority of content in the book.

One great thing about it is that it's very interactive - there are project files you download and are able to work with in real-time as you make your way through the book and the lessons. Tons of screen shots, tip sections and sidebars with additional information walk you through how to use the program quickly.

Even if you have had Sony Vegas for a while and think you know everything, I am certain you will pick up a few tricks and short cuts by the end of this book to streamline your process. By the time you turn the last page, you would have edited a music video with multiple camera angles, created some pretty slick text and even learned a bit about music copyright. I highly recommend the book and am proud to be associated with Packt Publishing's Sony Vegas Pro 11 Beginner's Guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a nice surprise 28 Oct 2012
By Einar Ritsmer - Published on
By teaching-by-doing the book shows you how you use Sony Vegas Pro (and the Sony Vegas Studio too, btw.) to import your recorded media, how you cut it, how you fix problems, how you add music, how you add text and much more - and how you render the result out to a finished video ready for watching.
The book includes downloadable media for all its cases - but you can also use your own videoclips.
A must for everybody wanting to learn video editing the enjoyable way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Everything is in PAL format 12 April 2013
By AE, Alpena AR - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It seems quite good and easy to follow,but the video lessons and samples are in PAL not NTSC so, although they will work it is not the best for USA users. I still recommend it just realize it was written for the PAL markets. Contacted their customer service and got a good, but very untimely reply. Couple of weeks for a final answer.
