With the improvements that we made to the closed captioning workflow in Vegas Pro 10 software, you can now create and export closed caption files for use with the videos you encode to WMV format whether for inclusion on a disc or for streaming over the web. That part's easy and we explain the exact techniques for doing so in our extensive training video that you'll find on the Seminar Series training package for Vegas Pro 10 software. In this article, I'll talk about how you can make those WMV closed captions viewable in the Windows Media Player.   [FULL STORY]
For the most part, you use the exact same techniques to work with files from your HDSLR as you do any other footage that you add to your Vegas Pro timeline. There are no specific "HDSLR-only" editing techniques that you need to learn, so if you already edit other types of footage with Vegas Pro software, use the same techniques for your HDSLR footage.   [FULL STORY]
One set of compositing controls remain largely unexplored and underutilized by perhaps most Vegas Pro editors.

I've been an editor for a long time, and Media Composer has been one of my tools right from the start, and over the years, I've come across some good tricks to help enhance my workflow. Some might be obvious once you see them, but others can be a little bit more "hidden". Here are five of my top five "tricks" for Media Composer. [FULL STORY]

We AVid users have had a BIG problem, and that was working with footage that was not OMF or (now) MXF. Any footage that wasn't captured via the digitize tool needed to be imported and converted to either OMF or MXF, and in many cases, the process was excruciatingly long if files weren't rendered with the Avid Codec. Thankfully, with Media Composer 5, that is no longer the case. [FULL STORY]

With Media Composer version 5, Avid is moving in not only a forward direction, but in a bit of a sideways direction as well. Premiere Pro CS5 and Final Cut Pro are drag-and-drop editing applications. This means that you can not only drag clips from the preview window and drop it into your timeline, but you now have an extensive amount of flexibility when dragging clips around in your timeline as well.

In this clip, host Abba Shapiro looks at how to create a freeze frame and a still image in Final Cut Pro. He iterates that you can park the playhead to any part of the video and grab a still image.

He then shows how to create a still image and how to choose the file format that Final Cut enables you to save to. [FULL STORY]
