Sony Vegas Pro

This series will get you editing with Sony Vegas Pro which is an excellent pro-level NLE although for some reason not given the attention that some other NLEs receive. Having used Vegas Pro and worked with it for this series, I saw what a well thought out app it is and how powerful it is when offering not just first rate editing tools but some very handy compositing and motion graphic tools all in a well-priced produced and with great integration with other products both by Sony and others.
