    Just wondered as for an optical 70x the quality has dropped a lot...then
    again I have not tried a camera with a 70x zoom.

    I have noticed that the optical zoom for video cameras is increasing. Some
    have 30x optical zoom or more (off he top of my head). The cheaper video
    cameras seem to have greater optical zoom and as most non professional
    people tend to hand hold the camera I can't see them getting a steady
    picture using something like 30x zoom even with a built in video
    stabilizer.

    anyone using a video camera for anything other than home use should be
    required by LAW to use a tripod, or at least give out barf bags before
    screenings ;-)

    You're still beating your head against a brick wall trying to use Pro
    11.
    Nuff said :)

    interestingly enough, i'm looking very closely at cs6. i have 5.5 but
    find the interface messy and too intrusive.

    heaven knows how i'll make the transition after so many years, but as
    you point out, i can't keep banging my head against a brick wall forever.

    it's a real pity though - i've made a good living using vegas, it WAS
    reliable, stable, and very simple to to use in even the most complex
    edits, but scs seems to have lost the plot. not only did they start
    bringing in unnecessary gimmicks to a 'supposedly' pro tool, they have
    ignored outstanding bugs and seem more interested in gaining new users
    at the expense of old ones.

    if, by some miracle, the next point release clears up a lot of the
    existing problems, then i'll probably continue with it, after all, i
    have a great deal of experience using it, and also a great deal of money
    tied up in plugins. however, i'm not holding my breath.

    how do you find cs5 vs 11 (or are you still 10? 9? 8?)

    I'm happily editing with 10 and, based on what I've read, have no
    desire to make the move to 11 (even though I have it) except to play
    with it.
    This reminds me of the mess that was Pro 9. I never used it as it
    took until version d before it was somewhat stable.
    I've been bitten by the black frame and replaced media bugs but
    thankfully both of those have been extremely rare.
    Our new office computers came with CS5.5 which I briefly tried and
    gave up on as it was not intuitive the way that Vegas is.
    Like you, I love using Vegas but feel that, for whatever reason, SCS
    has lost focus.
    Like you, I would much rather see them wait a year (or longer) and get
    ALL the bugs worked out before introducing another new version with
    more features most of us will never use.

    i went to 11 basically for the nb titler (what a fiasco) and a couple of
    other things, both of which have slipped my mind since 11 proved to be
    such a mess that it's made me forget a lot of things. i have 10 as well,
    but i thought after the 2nd point release of 11 scs might have sorted
    things out. apparently not.

    i truly am loathed to jump ship - not because of any misguided loyalty,
    i am after all a professional and a professional uses the best tool for
    the job whoever makes it. rather i have such experience using vegas it's
    almost second nature to me, and to start being distracted from the job
    at hand by the technicalities of learning yet another piece of software
    is something i can do without.

    that said, i'm holding out for the next vegas point release, and to see
    what cs6 edu upgrade will cost. either way one of them is going to win
    out.....

    it's a pretty sad the state scs has got itself into with both the
    software and its users. from praising it to all and sundry i am now much
    more guarded about recommending it, and scs seeming obsession with
    (value) adding new gimmicks when they don't even fix the old ones
    beggars belief. i mean there can only be handful of users actually using
    3d, (judging from the various posts) and i'm pretty sure scs could have
    thrown 3d in movie studio and satisfied their requirements rather than
    wasting time and energy into incorporating it in vegas pro when there's
    a plethora of things that either need fixing, or adding, such as the
    simple matter of spitting out a usable edl....

    For some of us that are trying to figure out the shorthand used in this
    e-mail
    What is cs6?
    What is scs?

    I should leave this for someone else, but...

    Firstly, it's not an e-mail message; it's a Usenet newsgroup post.

    CS6 = Adobe Creative Suite (version) 6

    SCS = Sony Creative Software

    LOL.

    I see that the humor machine is in full force today, Mr. Ruether. :)

    Too much caffeine this morning, perhaps?

    Thanks to those that gave me the answers.

    When I first tried Adobe Premiere CS4 I found it complicated. But after
    learning Sony Vegas Pro and looking at Adobe premiere CS4 again I don't
    find it so complex as many of the things that Sony Vegas has such as
    subclips are also found in Adobe Premiere CS4. I could not try version 5.5
    as I have a 32 bit operating system. The are some differences to get use to
    such as how crossfades are done. When you want to cut a video clip you pick
    up an icon called a razor, this must be for those that are use to using a
    razor when cutting film
    In the past. In many education schools Adobe Premiere is taught as it seems
    to be the industry standard.
    At this stage I have no plans on switching from Sony Vegas to Adobe
    Premiere Pro or any other video editor.

    Thank you for asking. :)
    Right, and many years ago there was a video editor called Speed Razor.
    It was put out by a (now defunct) company called in:sync.
    The higher-end products from Avid are really the "industry standard",
    at least in some circles. That's followed, or was followed, by Apple's
    Final Cut Pro (FCP). Of course, Apple then came out with a
    dumbed-down, consumer-centric product called Final Cut X which caused
    some FCP users to switch, usually to Adobe Premiere Pro, often on an
    HP Z-series workstation running a 64-bit version of Windows 7
    Professional.
    Can't say that I blame you. If you ever wish to try a very
    "business-like" editor, take a look at Grass Valley Edius.
