One thing I don't see much of in the tech forums is Vegas tutorial videos. Here are some great videos by "Little Rich".

(NOTE: Videos are for Pro 10, not sure what you can or can't do with Studio or Platinum, but if you can keyframe you can do a lot.)

You may look at some of these and say "Whatever, I don't think I'll ever need to add a demon face to anybody in a video. BUT, the way some of these techniques are done will teach you so much about using Vegas.

1) Basics

SOUND EDITING

As he notes, the audio volume envelope is very helpful for muting background music mixed in with dialogue.

"RIPPLE" EDITING

(I don't do this personally as I take a weird pleasure in moving clips myself.)

COLORING

2) Special Effects

MASKING - STRAIGHT LINES & CURVES

MOTION TRACKING

SPLIT SCREEN & CLONING

(This is mainly geared towards filming your own videos, but there is some awesome tips on cropping videos, panning/zooming and merging two shots/scenes together.)

^^^ THIS. I have been able to do a lot of cool things with Vegas, and I often learned them from watching tutorials that weren't really intended for the effect I was attempting.

yes, what Throwgn said.
good post, neg.
i've actually used this guy's tutorials a lot for reference. (the masking one in particular. helped a lot for my TMNT edit.)
and it helps that i really enjoy the way the guy talks.
he's funny without thinking he's funny and distracting from the information.

may the Force be with you. I've given the tech section(s) overhauls a bunch of times. With changing technology and needs its always an interesting task. keep me posted though, willing to help with an overhaul.

I thought about sticking this last night, then came to the same conclusion as Neg. But if it helps encourage him, so be it. :p

Whatever, I don't think I'll ever need to add a demon face to anybody in a video.
