    hey Gary,
    nice, but I was wondering on your web site under the 7 programs for
    beginners why no mention of Sony Vegas movie studio? or any vegas products
    for that matter?
    Just curious?

  3. Hi Anthony,

    Yes Sony Vegas movie studio is great too. But I didn't include it at
    the time of the review :p

    I'm confused by your reply. Doesn't your web site show ***free*** programs
    whereas Anthony is asking about Vegas Movie Studio and Vegas 6, neither one
    of which is free?

    Hi Smarty,
    I'll help clarify, the link Gary posted shows free programs indeed, but I
    was asking about why he hadn't included any Sony software in other sections
    of his site.
    He mentions adobe Premiere elements and Premiere Pro for more professional
    tasks but no mention of Sony Movie Studio or Vegas 6, as if they didn't
    I was just curious why? And his answer didn't seem to explain any reason
    except admit it.
    Perhaps then Gary, you should amend your web site, so state that it is
    incomplete until you have a chance to review all popular programs?

    Maybe Gary, like a lot of us, doesn't trust Sony now because of
    rootpack. I have a Sony camera but wont buy Sony now.

    Maybe not but after a stunt like that who knows what they would consider an
    ok technical improvement.
    Say they decide to add some type of Digital signature to the DV stream in
    camera so Sony post products can identify and "optimise" performance with
    only Sony DV streams but this is then found to screw other non Sony
    Unbelievable? Would have said so once... Now....

  10. Rootkits are an annoyance, as they are hard to remove. Your example is
    pretty far fetched, but I am sure a 15 year old kid with a bit of
    spare-time, can write a patch for that, which would probably spread like

    Thanks for the clarification.

  12. That's true. However, for normal videography you wouldn't need to install
    anything, just for importing stills from memory-sticks. But again, this is
    now, and you never know what might be developed in the future.

    Maybe, but that doesn't change the fact that Sony are assholes for
    putting the rootkit out there in the first place, and as such, don't
    deserve to get any of my money as their punishment.

    Thats just silly. The music people are on a different
    continent from the video people and share only the name
    on the letterhead. They are hardly the same company
    except at the very top of the org chart.

    Isn't that a good lesson on the dangers of creating a strong brand?-)
    People might actually believe that your brand _means_ something!

    So I'm making a statemet to them that they need to kick some ass
    amongst their underlings.

  17. Correcting the top-posting it becomes clear that 'doc' was reacting to
    the quote in my .sig but missed the reference to Ram Dass being an
    optimist. (Still off-topic tho' :)

    wrong, the United States is a decaying country whose justice will soon be
    forthcoming as she continues to run away from the God that protected her and
    built her!

    Ahhh, yes I didn't see the sig.
    As far as "correcting the top posting" this is one of the rare NG's where we
    could care less about top posting since the majority of the responses are
