Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD
Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD is a software program that allows people to make their homemade videos look better.
The UI is customizable, as you can choose to hide or show a large number of panels and toolbars such as ‘Explorer’, ‘Video Preview’, ‘Event Buttons’ and ‘Video FX’ and so on.
The interface of the application might look a bit unfriendly to novice users due to the numerous panels, when in fact it is quite easy to work with. If you still consider the program overwhelming, there are always tons of Help materials that can be accessed, from step-by-step interactive tutorials to a ‘What’s This’ option that gives users the chance to find out more about a certain feature by simply clicking on it.
Besides editing video files, the Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD program also allows you to create slideshows and animations with a lot of ease. This means that you have complete control over the number of frames per second you are going to use, the way certain pictures overlap (or not) and the types of transitions that may or may not exist between images.
The program features a lot of video editing tools that you can use, from ones that help increase the quality of the pictures or videos (Sharpen, Brightness and Contrast, Color Corrector, etc.), to ones that enable you to change the whole aspect of the image (Deform, Mirror, Sepia, Swirl, Black and White, etc.). In addition to that, you can use drag and drop commands to add text animations, title rolls, and scrolling credits. You can play the video in reverse, fast or slow motion, and add transitions.
The program also gives you the possibility to easily record yourself, import your own music (from your PC or directly from CDs) or choose from several soundtracks provided by the program. No matter what type of audio file you choose, the app allows you to edit it in a number of ways.
To sum up, Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD is a powerful piece of software that can be helpful if you are interested in creating movies, animations or presentations.
