Thanks for your kind welcome. I have never used a "forum" or posted on a forum so I do not know if this is where or how it is done. I have been associated with and grew up with photography and film since the earliest time in my life, through my parents, which I recollect would be like since I was born. I cannot remember not ever knowing photography. I have used many types of cameras from Minox through 16mm movie cameras and my largest is 17x23 inch copy camera. I have standard 8 and Hi8 and vhs and beta cameras. Currently I am using Lumix GF2, Lumix FZ70 and a Nikon D-7000. I have used windows movie maker, pro show gold and pro show producer for combimed slide and video production. The next project I am doing will require capturing at least 3 hours of video and edit down to one hour. The project is to video a series of speakers whose narration will in the final cut be at least one hour in length.I already had Vegas movie studio 10 on my computer and happened to find your site on U-tube tutorials and it looks about my speed so here I am. I will begin by doing some small projects for familiarization and hope in a month begin on the larger one. Happy Day, Daveo

Hi Daveo and welcome to the Movie Studio Zen Forum.

I always had a camera in my hand when I was growing up. My parents owned a 16mm movie camera which we used quite a lot.
The best thing I ever did was learn how to develop and print my own photographs. I think younger photographers who have never had this experience, would learn quite a lot from doing it the "old fashioned way". I actually really miss the whole process of hiding away in a dark room for an entire weekend and then coming out with a few gems.

If you ever need any help, you have found the right place. You have posted your first message in the right section.
I have every version of Movie Studio Platinum going back to Version 9, so I can still open up Version 10 and know what you are talking about.
Most of my tutorials will work in any version on Movie Studio Platinum or Vegas Pro.

Cheers :)
Derek.

Hi Derek
What an excellent resource this website is for a newbie like me.
I have been dabbling with windows movie maker and prism conversion software for a few years before being recommended Sony Vegas by a friend. I ended up buying Sony movie maker platinum 12 HD and so far so good.
Cars and car culture is what got me into film making, however I have a problem.
When I film at events I need to pixilate faces and number plates which is not to difficult if the object is large.
Some of the best shots are cars coming towards camera from distance and I find the size on the preview screen about the same size as my thumbnail but on a 55 inch TV the number plate is becoming visible. So how can I zoom the edit.
Best Regards
carmax..

Hi Carmax

Thank you for your message.
I will have to get back to you later about answering your question, because it will require me to create screen shots and write instructions to answer you properly.

Regards
Derek :)

Hi Derek
Thanks for your reply
This is the first forum I have ever joined so please forgive my lack of etiquette.
I posted my Introduction here and maybe should have asked my question in another section?
Any how its good to know that my version of Sony is capable of doing what I need it to do.
I look forward to you getting back to me, hope you are well, keep up the good work.
Best Regards
Carmax .

Hi carmax

Sorry for further delay.
My website has been under attack by spammers and I have just spent the last two weeks repairing the damage done.
I have recorded a rough video tutorial for you, because it is much easier that way.
I have uploaded it to Dropbox and have sent you a private email with link in it.

Regards
Derek.

Hi Folks. We are new to this forum. We have a live internet TV music show called "NASHVILLE SIDE STREETS" (www.nashvillesidestreets.com/) that we broadcast with Wirecast and then edit with Vegas before uploading. We are starting to create videos to back soundtracks with Pro 12.
We are novices and have learned a bunch using Vegas, and we sometimes need help! Looking forward to connecting with other creators.

Hi Derek and all,
On a very steep learning curve with all the joys and wonderment of why things work and why they don't re: Video recording and editing.
Have a wide scape of things to work with here in Atlantic Canada! - winter and summer. Working on videos of my German Shepherd dog whilst she is tracking - helps enormously reading her body language and my line handling
Derek - many thanks for your tutorials - they are so well presented with nothing presumed skill wise about the viewer - a good approach.
I am using a Panasonic HC -X920 and very pleased with the results.
My Comp is limited - but will do what I need at present.
One question which will indicate my level of knowledge:
1920*1080*32
What does the figure 32 relate to?

Keeping it shot as its an intro!
Regards,
Peter

Welcome to the Forum Peter.

1920*1080*32
What does the figure 32 relate to?

32 relates to the Bit Depth for Colour. The higher this number is, the more colour information is encoded for the video.
32 Bit Depth = 8 Bits for Red, 8 Bits for Green, 8 Bits for Blue and 8 Bits for Alpha Channel.

You can read more about this in these two articles.
