Ok i have Premiere Pro 1.5. I have seen lots of people going on about Sony Vegas so i wasn wondering if it was worth getting it or as i have premiere would it be a waste of money ? The audio feature do look very good. Ideally want to hear from people who have used both and made an informed descision on which to use but all replies are welcome.

I'm talking about vegas 6 of course

I have used both and a while back I was forced to choose one. I went with Premiere Pro 1.5 simply because I was very familiar with the interface of 6.5 and knew my way around very well. I do love Vegas however, it ran better on my computer and was a little bit easier to get started in. The AE and PSD integration really interested me as well as I have AE and access to PS.

Also, thhese two companies are constantly trying to match and exceed what the other is doing. The result is two similar products. Forcing the buyer in most cases to go by personal preference or random selection.

This is simply what I have observed, I know for a fact there are more knowledgeble sources around here and they will certainly be able to help you some more.

yeah some forums i've checked say it's actually worth having them both simply becuase of vegas having the superior sound functionality because of it's ancestry as a sound only system. I too have AE 6 and Photoshop CS so thats interesting but of course available with both products.

I recently bought Vegas because it was the first program I tried. Then I saw the price is slightly lower than Pro 1.5 and I got a DVD making program to go with it. I got used to Vegas (still learning though) and I like it.

If you have Premiere Pro 1.5, I would say to stick with that because it is as good as a program as Vegas. I don't see the point to buying 2 expensive programs that probably have the same features. Vegas has a better audio mixer? So what. I don't think the mixer is worth paying $400 more for.

After I bought Vegas, just to make sure that I did not make a bad decision, I downloaded the Premiere Pro 1.5 trial and I looked at it for awhile. I hated it because I was more used to the Vegas setup. I am guessing that trying out Vegas after using Pro 1.5 might make you feel the same.

Pro 1.5 is a great program. Keep it and ignore Vegas. It would be a waste of money.

Well, I went to Vegas from Premiere 6 and it was night and day for me.
I've upgraded Vegas twice now and I have version 6.

The biggest downside to Vegas IMO is that Photoshop and AE integrate perfectly with premiere, and that doesn't happen with Vegas. You cannot just drop a photoshop document into Vegas and have it split up into layers, but that is such a minor issue since there is a quite simple work around.

On the positive side:
Vegas kicks the crap out of Premiere's audio functions, in fact you can just use vegas as a multitrack audio program if you want to.

The way Vegas handles stills is (well was at Premiere 6) light years better- the tracking and motion were smooth and with supersampling and other things you can keep these things looking good no mater how you manipulate them.

Grouping events, compositing, and just about everything else was superior IMO to premiere as well. Vegas is very intuitive- just about everything you can think of is keyframable and has envelopes- you can easily paste together an entire sequence on one track and then use that one track as an "elemet' to manipulate over other stuff.

The "real time" preview was 1 million times faster and better in Vegas and responds well to increased RAM in your computer.

Scroll down the page to the "Title fade" post in this forum and you will see what I mean. To do this in Premiere you have to actually "insert a transition" which is a pain in the ass.

In Vegas all you do is click at the begining of ANYTHING (audio, video, etccc) and drag. A little envelope section appears. In audio its VOLUME in VIDEO it's OPACITY. Just drag it as long as you want it. Instant fade in (or out)

Overall, I just found Vegas to be far superior than Premiere at that time, but I've never used Premiere Pro, once I went Vegas I never looked back.

Try posting at creativecow and asking in either the premiere forum or the Vegas forum about people that use both or have switched.

Just so you know, in Premiere, you DON'T HAVE TO insert a transition. You can do the EXACT thing that you just said you can do in Vegas. You just did it the hard way smile

Hey DPU, I'm afraid you're wrong about the sound features not being worht the extra money. Sound is a VERY important and often neglected part of good film making. Good sound processing kit including dolby 5.1 mixing could easily cost the 400 the vegas costs.

Bryan, I've found premiere a bit cumbersome myself and you wouldn't be the first I've found that switched. I read a review by a guy that used to be a adobe advocate and hated the very idea of Vegas. Then he tried it and has never looked back......wasn't you wasn it lol I'm a bit like that guy really, a PC user and subbornly avoid Apple (although I did look at them seriously before going for a dual core Pentium) But i've seen so much good press about it's ease of use, performance and the like that I dont think i can ignore it any longer. And as I'm just getting into doing some surround sound stuff which is built in to Vegas but a paid extra for premiere.

I remember when I started the whole video editing thing. After growing bored of the family software (Videowave3) I tried Vegas 2.0d and loved how easy things were.

I tried Premiere but didn't like the feeling I got from it. And it certainly wasn't easy without looking up help to find out how to do specific things. The only thing I can really say about Vegas is that once I started using it, I understood it. I didn't need to read tutorials or look up help. It was just kind of instinctive.

And I've never looked back since. Although, Vegas 6 isn't working as well for me right now. Rendering that is... Something might be buggy on my system, I'm not sure. But Vegas 5 works fine. Or did before I got Vegas 6. So, you might want to hold off from 6 right now or get a copy of 5.

I was referring to Premiere 6.0 and it has been 4 years or so since I used it, but even the fact that stills had some odd things going on around the edges when doing simple moves always bugged me about Premiere. Premiere Pro got some decent reviews and they probably have fixed a lot of the things that were keeping it back, but in Vegas all you ever had to do was just overlap a couple clips on the same track and BAM instant crossfade, if you dont like that you can drag and drop any transition onto the overlapped bit. The same goes for audio. It was just easier, more intuitive and Vegas' built in media generators for text crawls and other things were always nice as well, as well as very good slo-motion (which is even a velocity Envelope control so you can ramp the speed up or down in the same clip) and other features.
The workflow in Vegas as well as ACID have just made doing anything so much easier and look better than I got in Premiere 6 that I had no reason to look back.

I even imported some Alam DV2 plugins into Vegas as image sequences and keyed them. Alam DV without Alam! (you could do that in Premiere too)
To each his own, but I'm glad SONY is promoting Vegas like it is and with the added HD features and ACID loop support, it's finding it's way into some serious circles and is definitely worth a look for the hobbyist / semi pro as well as the professional.
For the record I didn't hate premiere 6, but I was always disappointed when I tried to do something cool. Vegas just offered more features to make those things easier at the time.

I agree with adamlightandmagic. My family computer has both Vegas and Adobe Premiere on it and I prefer Vegas. The whole workflow is better, things are easier to access, less chaotic, IMO. I didn't have to read any tutorials, I just picked it up. With Premiere, I had to read a manual just to get started, and I STILL find it slower and more difficult to use.

I dunno, I guess it's about preference, but in my opinion, Vegas is the way to go.

I'm having trouble with rendering as well. REALLY SLOW.

I may uninstall 6 and go back to using 5 for a while.

Despite that I would still recommend Vegas. I just couldn't get to grips with Prem. Far too complicated to do even the simplest thing.

Vegas is so intuative you can pretty much pick it up straight away. Point, click, click, drag, render .... done!

Yeah, 5.1 is definitely very cool. I've been mixing music in stereo for the last 8 years. And then I heard some 5.1 DVD-A discs and wondered what it would be like. Been trying 5.1 mixing since last September and still on a learning curve. But the ideas that can be pursued are really interesting.

It's maybe easy to say (cause it's not my money)

But I think Vegas is a good choice.
A cousin of me (age: 19) bought it to. And he was more happy with it, then with Premiere....

But after all, Premiere isn't a bad program, on the contrary.
But Vegas is still better I think, if seen (and worked with) them both.

i love Vegas it is a real life saver in terms of ease of use. I had to get a ton of videos done earlier last month and Vegas was fast so I could get all of them done and I didn't have to go searching around for simple commands. Vegas has always come through for me.

okay I guess maybe I should have asked how far into filmmaking you are. I just goof around with my buddies in my films so $400 extra seems like a waste to me. The sound features are great in Vegas and if you feel that sound is very important to you, then Vegas is a great buy.

I guess if you're comfortable with Premiere and want to save cash, you can stick with it and see how it goes. Learn all the things you want, etc. But the fact that you're here asking about Vegas kinda suggests you were thinking of getting it, yes?

Personally, sound is hugely important to me and it's a key area where I see many films fall flat on their face! Seriously, films with bad sound can be annoying to me. Bad pictures, not so much. Vegas definitely encourages you to look into the area of sound further and makes the whole process painless.

Referring to an earlier comment about Vegas and integration with Photoshop (layers in PSDs more specifically), the newest version of Vegas offers support for Photoshop layers.

For some reason I thought I had upgraded to version 6 and I haven't.

I still have 5.0


What was I thinking!?

Hmm... I just dropped one of my psd files onto the timeline but can't see any new layers. It should show three layers.

I remember reading that Dvd Architect 3 had the photoshop ability but didn't know about Vegas'. Are you sure you didn't mix these up because I can't see how this is supposed to work.

hey, Vegas users. I have a question. I have the old Vegas 4, and one day *poof* all my audio plugins were gone. just the basic 4 are left like: eq, dither, and like two others. I don't THINK I deleted them. Any thoughts on how to get those back? Thanks.

Did you check all the tabs, e.g. 3rd party, Sonic Foundry(Vegas4 was not Sony), 5.1 fx, etc.

And were you changing anything with your computer, e.g. installing/uninstalling software or drivers, etc.

Even going from 4 to 5 would be worth it imo! I'm really not sure about Vegas6 at the mo. I thought I'd sorted my prob, but perhaps not. Not everything likes to render past 334MB. It may be something to do with my captures, but I have no way of knowing without getting old footage to render. I might try some out soon. I'll post back if it works.

for those who want to upgrade(like me) don't forget to use your student advantage. You can get Vegas 6 for $189. I totally plan on upgrading next pay day( or two).http://www.academicsuperstore.com/market/marketdisp.html?PartNo=735176&qk_srch=vegas

Definitely a problem with Vegas 6 for me. I tried a render of an old video I've rendered off loads of times and it didn't work. And one of the magic numbers showed up, too... 334MB.

I'll try searching the Sony forums and getting back about this. This is too important not to share!

John:

If you've dealt with any sound editing software, then Vegas is a good choice. Sony/Sonic Foundry has a program called ACID (which I own and consider a great buy). I believe that when Sony merged with the company, they wanted to develop a video editing program that was a bit more advanced than their predicessors. If you've done sound editing, than learning this shouldn't be a big issue at all.

Vegas has only one video window for program and preview, so if you prefer a dual monitor during editing, you'd have to have two physical monitors to do this. I know for sure that Vegas has the option for external monitors built into the program, however. I know for me this was a bit difficult for me to adjust to as all my other editing programs I've used use have a dual video preview option. In fact this was the reason that I decided not to get Vegas. (As a caveat, one of the jobs I'm applying for uses Vegas, so I'm definitely considering of purchasing it if I get the job)

As stated before the timeline differs slightly from typical video editors. For example, to do a transition, expand any video track and it becomes an A/B track for cross dissolves and effects. I know the most current version of premiere pro uses more single track editing (which is typical of most "production level editors). I've been told that you can also link up separate tracks as parents and children for masking and compositing, which is cool. But if you have Chromanator and/or EffectsLab they are equally as effective.

In my opinion, the best thing I've seen is how it integrates with ACID and its take on sound design. For example, if you have ACID you can go back and forth between projects pretty easily. Vegas also has 5.1 surround-mixing tools, so you can now work in multiple audio tracks. And if you don't have of the ACID loops, I highly suggest you get them. You can even get some loops free. Send me a PM if you need that 411.

I also like Premiere, but that's because I already have After Effects and Photoshop. I may upgrade to Premiere because you can go back and forth between these programs since they're all made by Adobe.

I know I'm playing both sides of the fence, but in my opinion I think you'll be happy with either choice. In short, if you're used to sound editors, and want a solid interface with sound design, go for Vegas. If you want good workflow and already have After Effects, Photoshop, etc...consider Premiere.

I honestly think you'll be happy with either program.

Note: Vegas6 now offers dual monitor editing with a secondary monitor!

This is a great feature and really allows you to edit with a little more care for the picture. It's nice to have a different perspective.

Vegas has always offered the external monitor option, but that was through a firewire option or a pro card. Not something I could use. But the secondary monitor thing is EXACTLY what I've always wanted!! So great to finally have that option fulfilled. smile

And further, if your video card also has a tv-out (composite or s-video out), you can setup a tv as a secondary/third monitor and view your video on the tv! I haven't tried that, but I don't see why it wouldn't work. Just wish I had a small tv or the space to put it to use.

So, you can now see that Vegas has spread its wings even more with the latest version.

I kinda do that now with Vegas 5.
I use the "preview on external monitor" selection and it previews through firewire onto my DV cam, I use the analog outs of the cam into an old Commodore monitor. So the cam basically just converts the signal to composite for me. Vegas has a huge user support community as well.
Go to the Vasst forums, DMN formus or creativecow and you'll see what I mean. IMO Vegas is more intuitive than premiere or some others I've tried.

ok well i already have premiere pro 1.5 anyway and premiere has supported external monitors for a while, Vegas has just arrived so i think I'll use a horses for courses approach to using each one. The vegas i have comes with Acid and DVD architect so i'm all sorted now. Looking forward to paying with 5.1 sound. I have no doubt it'll be a mess as i'm a totaly amatuer. The worst kind to, money for good kit but no talent lol

Here are my results of testing the latest Vegas6...

Ultimately, I've reverted back to Vegas 5 because of rendering problems. For some reason it doesn't render an MPEG file past 333MB. I really don't understand why, unless the mpeg driver is broken. Suffice to say, I didn't try rendering to any other formats because I had limited time. I just want to work again!! Rather than sit and do mind-numbingly boring render tests. I've done it before and unless I'm forced to, I never want to do it ever again!

But overall, even after reinstalling Vegas5 while version 6 was still on the machine, ver5 still did the same as Ver6. But when I uninstalled ver6, ver5 started to work fine! Is this perhaps some kind of registry error for the plug in question? sad

I seem to be on my own with this problem as I didn't see any posts on the Sony forums that sounded similar. And it happened on two separate machines. One was a clean install, too. Very sad as I liked the new secondary monitor feature! But at least Vegas5 is working for me.

thats something i'll have to keep an eye on. I have to admit i had a quick edit and DVD to produce for a friend last night and I used premier to edit and TMPENG to encode (the latest version) and then Ulead DVD Workshop 2 to transfer to DVD. I'm hoping Vegas will streamline this (along with DVD architect.) We shall see. But was the MPG file was 3GB i'm a bit worried about any possible size restriction like that.
