Insert I-frames at Markers
The MainConcept MPEG-2 encoder supports I-Frame insertion at timeline markers. (I-Frames are a representation of a complete frame that following frames are derived; more I-frames means a larger file) By providing I-Frames at timeline markers, a rendered file has precise chapter and navigation point placement for DVD Architect Studio software.
Envelope Brush Paint Tool
Track envelopes such as audio volume and pan, and video composite levels are customized via points over time. The envelope brush tool provides user with the ability to paint an envelope curve over time by holding down the shift key. This provides a quick way to outline the general shape of the envelope without placing and modifying many distinct points. The auto-thinning feature provides a mathematical approximation of the drawn curve with as few points as possible. The resulting points can be further optimized independently.
Single-Monitor Full-Screen Preview:
Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 10 enhances the preview experience by providing functionality to view the timeline on both the Preview window and an external device (or secondary display) simultaneously. Additional Preview window enhancements included new scaling options and "auto-fit" to maximize the preview experience with available window space. Simultaneous preview provides editors with the ability to setup a large scale viewing environment while preserving the editor's on-screen editing environment. In particular, laptop systems can easily switch between editing and full-screen preview modes.
View Media Marker Names in Events:
Media used in the timeline may contain markers. This product can enable the display of these media markers directly on the timeline event. Individual media will have individual markers. By displaying the individual media markers on the explicit media event and editor can quickly focus on key points of interest without cluttering the entire timeline workspace.
Multithreaded Audio Engine
The multithreaded audio engine is an optimized system that takes advantage of new multicore and hyperthreading computer systems to fully utilize available hardware resources. By leveraging the full capabilities of the hardware and reducing direct CPU load, users will benefit from a greater number of tracks and audio/video effects for real-time preview, improved performance at lower latencies, and faster audio render times.
The Gracenote MusicID media recognition service can be used when ripping content from CDs. Users can automatically view information about a CD track including, title, artist, and song name, and can also submit data.

I never used to really rate Sony Vegas as a serious editing application. I just couldn't get to like the interface.
The one big thing in its favour however was its stability. Whatever video file system you would throw at it, it managed somehow to play it. After having had some trouble editing HD material with Premiere Pro as well as Premiere Elements (mostly due to my PC's specs -albeit a Quad Core), I recently downloaded a trial of Movie Studio version 9b. The results were amazing compared to the Adobe experience. I liked it so much, I bought the programme!
A few days ago, I received a notification of an update to version 10 which I then downloaded.
What a transformation. The interface is now looking like a standard NLE, with a "proper" source monitor pane instead of the horrible Trimmer window. The desktop colour has been darked and is reminiscent of Final Cut Pro. There are more rendering choices with more customisable option... I could go on.
Suffice to say that instead of having to spend a lot of money on a PC upgrade to an i7 in order to run Premiere, I am more than happy to stick with this new version of Sony Vegas and actually get on and enjoy my editing - without waiting for the machine to crash or lock up.
Studio 9 had been repeatedly crashing whenever I tried to render a 25 minute video to hard drive in full HD. Immediately after installing Studio 10 I tried again, and it worked. It is also rendering much faster than version 9. This version now gives you more control over rendering, letting you choose how many rendering threads you want the processors to be given, and how much memory to allocate to rendering. It also supports hardware rendering on graphics cards that are CUDA-enabled. Although let's be honest, if you can afford a really good CUDA-capable graphics card you will probably be investing quite a lot more in your editing and production software...
I use the CUDA-enabled Nvidia GeForce GTX285 card, which I was very fortunate to find as Dell surplus. This is a baby card in terms of the entire CUDA range, but even so rendering an HD test clip with multiple video layers took 177 seconds on the GPU as opposed to 212 seconds using only the CPU (which has six 3.2GHz cores, so it's not like it drags its heels). This is a 17% reduction in rendering time which is definitely at the more satisfactory end of the 5-20% improvement that Sony say you can expect with hardware rendering.Read more ›
I come from a time when 3 machine linear editing was done with 2 inch quadruplex machines (Ampex VR 2000) and later 1 inch and smaller formats, the video editor hardware was just a machine controller which placed the machines at a parking point, started them in an order such that the edit points all lined up and the job was done... with some skill from the human person who added the artistry.
If you smile at the term "Carding out", you are from the 2 inch era. Hi Guys.
If not, ask and I will explain.
The SONY Vegas Movie Studio HD platinum package is clearly derived from the time of SONY Broadcast Editors and BVW800 video machines.
I left Broadcasting before the digital revolution.
The package under review is more than you will ever want.
I managed to create a more than satisfactory package using simple cut edits without even looking at a manual.
A sign that software is intuitive is that IF the first thing you need to do is read the manual, forget it !
The tutorial Video supplied on the disk is interesting to watch though a bit frantic.
Once you have mastered cut edits, which the software makes very easy, you wonder, as I did, how to run a continuous audio track from a piece of footage, say of background birds or something, but ignore the associated video which may or may not be of use later.Read more ›
