I have used various editors including Vegas Movie Studio (VMS), Pinnacle Studio (7,8 and 9), and Cyberlink Power Director 3. Let me tell you how refreshing it is to use such a powerful and STABLE editor like VMS. I have spent many frustrated nights using Pinnacles Studio and now that Sony has replaced MyDVD with their own DVD Architect, I have finally uninstalled Power Director and removed the Pinnacle infestation from my computer. VMS has features like chromakey, and PiP that the others dont have or charge extra in a "plus" version. All render high quality video but VMS rendering engine is the fastest.

9.0b still doesn't burn working BD5 or BD9 disks that play in a player. Back to doing it with Nero...

$50 well spent, especially if you use a Sony camcorder. I also have a older (v 6.5) version of Premiere, and Vegas Movie compares very favorably with it as a professional-style editor that isn't so dumbed down that it becomes limiting. (Of course, Vegas works much faster and accepts more formats than does my old Premiere that was made before WinXP.)

I was delighted to find that Vegas Movie can do many things that one would expect only a much more expensive, "professional" editor to do. For example, it can do transparent overlays, like if you want to place a watermark on your video.

One problem that I experienced with Vegas Movie is that sometimes, when I click the main timeline preview Play button, it will cause my computer to freeze while it runs through the entire movie, and the computer remains frozen until I reboot it. However, I learned from experience that this can be prevented by minimizing all of the tracks, making the movie preview window small and "draft option" in appearance, and turning off all unneeded programs that may be running in the background. My computer system is an older one that has been through many upgrades, so that may have something to do with this issue. I mention the solution here in case anyone else encounters that problem.

Other programs I have used in addition to Premiere include several versions of MainActor, VideoEdit, Windows Movie Maker, VideoWave, and some I can't remember. So far, Vegas Movie is the best of them all.

I should mention that I use the excellent free QuickMediaConverter to convert VOB files for use with Vegas Movie.

I have edited programs with Adobe Premiere 6.1 and Premiere Elements 3. Beginning last week, I started using Sony Vegas Studio to edit my current project. I found one huge defect that results in a program failure due to memory leakage. It took me two days to learn how to avoid this crash...

Do not show AVCHD program media in thumbnail view. Use list view instead.

But this caveat notwithstanding, the program is very stable. The large number of effects and filters are excellent. My congratulations to the designers and programmers. My only disappointment is that the maximum source count is four. At least one more video and audio timeline source should be made available.

Of course there is a "scene view" box. Top left menu bar select View, in drop down menu click Video Preview.Scene view box will appear bottom right of screen.
Vegas Movie Studio might not have everything but it works and your computer does not crash.
