In today's Sony Vegas Zen Tips #8, I show how I save progressive versions of all my Sony Vegas Pro and Movie Studio Platinum project files.

This is important to do, because each different version you save, acts like a kind of mini-backup of how the project looks at each stage. If something catastrophic happens to one of the versions, you can then open a slightly older version of your project and rescue your work. Please watch video tutorial for more details.

Compatibility

The information in this tutorial applies to all versions of Sony Vegas Pro and Sony Movie Studio Platinum.

    This is a great tip. I also use progressive 'save as'. I often carry it a bit further. I include major steps along with the incremental save versions, such as.....

    Matrix-01.veg
    Matrix-02-SoundEffect-01.veg
    Matrix-03-SlowMotion-01.veg
    Matrix-03-SlowMotion-02.veg
    Matrix-04-Titles-01.veg
    Matrix-05-Music-01.veg
    Matrix-06-Intro-03veg-01.veg

    ......and, so on. It's not uncommon for me to have 30-40 progressive saves on a short project. The last example is pulling a project into a project, where I have a separate project with the Introduction named Intro-03.veg and embed that into the Matrix project. I spend a few seconds in the project name describing the major changes, in the event I have several projects going on at the same time, it helps my feeble brain recall steps, after I have been away from a project for a period of time.

    Best Regards.....George
