I can't imagine anyone to know everything from that short period. My son spent years in school on this area.
2. No. I think the Pro is always learning. There is always something old and new to learn.
The best advice is to dive in and start doing the work.
I have some questions about the DVD tutorial that comes in the Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum Production Suite 11 package.
I'm a new student who just started trying to learn the craft of Web video editing by practicing with Sony's free trial download. Sony sells 4 different Vegas software packages. The Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum Production Suite 11 is the only one that comes packaged with a DVD tutorial (the DVD tutorial is not included with Sony Pro).
1) Does anyone know the run time of the DVD?
2) Does the DVD tutorial teach new students more techniques than the Show Me How interactive tutorial that comes with all 4 versions of Vegas? Or in other words, does it go beyond basics by teaching the student how to edit videos a little like a pro?
I know it can be hard, and sometimes impossible, for some students to learn a software program that has approximately 1200 features and is known for having a distinct lack of training material like this program has. And that would be the type of training material takes the student, in using 20 or 30 of Vegas' features, from ground zero to expert level. The people who publish the Missing Manual series of books should publish one for Sony Vegas. I'm sure I speak for other students when I say thanks in advance.
