      Used to Edit 3D. There are not very many 3D editing programs that I can find, This one is easy to use once you figure it out.

        Comments about Sony Vegas Pro 12 (Slip Sleeve Package):

        I don't think it would be fair to give 5 stars since I haven't installed Vegas. I'm sure it's good, but I have other software for editing. What I wanted was DVD Architech 5, which is one of the easiest DVD/Blu-Ray creators out there, plus you can make multiple video tracks (multi-angle), multiple sound tracks (various languages), multiple subtitle tracks (Closed Captions), and a lot of other professional features. It works really well with a slim number of exceptions.

        This version of Vegas comes with version 5 of DVD Architect, but you can download ver 6 for free. (Not sure for how long, visit their site for those details).

        My dislikes are that they don't cover the full range of possible frame rates. Maybe there's a reason. Sometimes the video doesn't come out as sharp as expected, but that's due to the setting of the Bit Rate. Which is sometimes surprising that it reads video as being much larger than the file size, thereby having to compress according to the programs estimate and getting a much lower bit rate.

        The Pros, this is great software no matter what if you compare it to some of the others. Easy to use, you'll be making DVD menus in no time, depending on how much time you really want to spend making it look "Hollywood-ish". There are lots of features to give the user a great experience. It's pretty intuitive, although sometimes it can get a little confusing depending on how you structure your DVD.

          Comments about Sony Vegas Pro 12 (Slip Sleeve Package):

          Vegas Pro is the fastest editing system out there. Period.

          I've worked with Avid, Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, Edius, and nothing compares to Vegas for pure editing speed. I can drop clips directly on the timeline and be cutting with the most intuitive interface available from any of the major editing systems.

          Now that Vegas 12 offers exporting of project files to various formats including XML and Premiere Pro projects, I can reliably move my edits to After Effects or Da Vinci Resolve. Opening up a whole new realm of creative possibilities and taking Vegas out of it's previously closed ecosystem.

          For straight editing and sound mixing, Vegas can't be beat. And now that I can take my edits from Vegas to After Effects and Da Vinci, it's the best way to begin any complex project.

            No wonder this editing software is getting so much attention. Compares to FCP and Premier Pro in features, ease of use and plug-ins.

                User interface is not good.
