SONY Vegas Pro 11.0 Build 700 32-bit / 13.0 Build 328 64-bit
Combines real-time SD, DV and HDV video editing with unrivaled audio tools to provide the ultimate all-in-one environment for experts and novices alike
In order to be able to use the unregistered version of SONY Vegas Pro, users have to register online and supply some personal information. Needless to say, Internet connection is a must to ensure successful activation.
The main window of SONY Vegas Pro might seem a little overwhelming at first sight, as it displays a wide screen which is divided into smaller sections. The best way to get accustomed to all its functions is to take them one by one, and understand the role of each of them.
The right side of the main window is the place where videos can be previewed, allowing users to play then analyze each frame of the clip with the push of a button. Also, a video can be recorded on the spot, and easily integrated in the current project.
The timeline is another feature that takes up a large part of the screen, and it can be used to choose the audio background of a project, add transition effects, insert new video clips and arrange all the objects to obtain a smooth 3D presentation.
The beginners might also be interested in the video effects they can add to their clips, while the experts are bound to appreciate the adjustments they can bring to both audio and video tracks to fit their necessities precisely.
Once the video has been created, it can be shared online or uploaded to YouTube after the proper credentials have been specified.
Anyone who is interested in the multimedia field is welcome to try out SONY Vegas Pro. Although it was initially designed for professionals (e.g. web developers, 3D artists), the app also comes with a suite of interactive help provided by a vast and friendly community. All in all, SONY Vegas Pro is a pretty good tool for creating 3D home videos in high definition yet those who want to use it after the trial period ends need to purchase a license.
