Image Stabilization in Sony Vegas 10

With version 10, the team at Sony Creative Software added many new features to the already powerful feature set of Sony Vegas. One of the most requested and popular new features added is image stabilization.

In this video tutorial, Creative COW leader Michael Hurwicz explores not only the basics of image stabilization, as well as short-cuts to speed workflows, but includes a workaround for stabilizing unsupported formats like Panasonic MXF files. He also explains how to use "takes" to preview multiple stabilization alternatives.

Archiving is really important as you can be sure that at some point either a customer will come back and ask for some footage from an old project or you will find you need to get a hold of some footage and you don't know where it is! However, good archiving of old material will help make this a far less painful experience. In this Premiere Pro video tutorial Andrew Devis outlines how to use the Project Manager to create both trimmed and full archived projects ready with all your footage to put on an external hard drive and save for when that day comes.
