SquallxRinoa(one of my favorite pairings), just how long have you been working on this video? I've been coming to this thread for a while and I've noticed that your help screens consist of Kingdom Hearts series footage. Have you been working on one for video for the last several months, or what?

you can set up vegas to automatically open project media in the trimmer when you double click :3
I'm not at home so I can't tell you how to do it (I'd have to go through Vegas again to find it) or else I'd say how...

I've commented somewhere in here before i think ... and know that Divx/Xvid Formats are bad to edit with so I just wanna know ..

What formats are good for editing with Sony Vegas and what converter do I use to convert videos to said formats ?

Encoding the videos into HuffyUV or Lagarith are what you should use. Personally, I use Lagarith for the clips and encode my master as a HuffyUV. Anyway, you can do that in Virtual Dub Mod. Just have your settings at Fast Recompress instead of Full Processing Mode.

Well, it's the uncompressed version of the product. Usually it's separated into one video and one audio file. That's the one straight from the editing program, not the one for distribution.

That's why you don't convert whole episodes at a time unless you have a huge Hard drive. Just select out the clips you want to use to convert.

Reference to what you're saying, I have Roxio Digital Media Program that allows me to take clips from non-protected DVDs like imported anime. Often, before I take any footage or convert them I check my current memory space status. If room needs to be made, I remove some major files I don't need and ensure which clips I need to convert ahead of time. It's a good idea to know what you need and are about to do ahead of time before making a move.

Besides what I just said, the Sony Vegas guide is a major helper. Not only does it give information about Sony Vegas' features, but shows what it looks like. I'm thinking about checking out this video program sometime in the future. Great job making this tutorial.

are you making clips for source? or are you trying to save your video file?
