I GOT MYSELF SONY VEGAS PRO 8 TODAY
I went to the Sony Vegas Pro 8 showcase event this afternoon intending to buy the US$300 upgrade version of new Sony Vegas.
Instead I left happily with a US$500 full version of the Sony Vegas Pro 8.
It's the lucky draw first prize and I WON it. :D
VIDEOGRAPHY GURU SPOTTED EAGLE
Adding to the experience, the prize was presented to me by none other than Douglas Spotted Eagle himself, whom specially flew in to Singapore for the showcase event.
So, why did I want to get the new version in the first place?
You can place like 3 or more video tracks on the screen and choose the shots to be edited just by watching in real time. It makes editing so quick and easy for seminar videos and concert videos.
The text generator is now more exciting. No need to use another software to create titles anymore. Make animated text effects with splined paths, per-character animation, and advanced curves.
MAKE MUSIC ROYALTY-FREE
Use ACID loops to make your own music score. ACID loops, or any audio event that has had ACID metadata assigned to it, will auto-stretch to the existing project tempo. The beat syncs itself beautifully.
HDV and AVCHD EDITING
Lastly, Sony Vegas is one of the few video editing software that support AVCHD, the format that will replace DV in the near future.
