    Jun 13, 2010, 10:52 PM - Think I got PWND with Vegas Movie Studio... #1

    Hey guys. I just need to vent for a minute and maybe one of you can help me out.

    Just bought Sony Vegas Movie Studio 9 Platinum Pro Pack and was all excited about making some effects with a higher powered program. Program came in and guess what: Movie Studio doesn't have a FREAKING MASKING TOOL!

    Well who's the tool now? Me. It's a decent enough program than I'd want to hold on to it (and Provantage isn't going to let me return it cause it's already opened), but I'm really at a loss since the mask is vital for most post effects.

    Can anyone help me out?

    I'm no movie program expert, but when me and my filmteam editing our movies, we use a lot of programs... And to be honest, vegas sucks on the effect part! We use a lot of programs, one for 3D one for guns, explotions, one for sounds, etc etc... But for editing we use vegas... And vegas is a great editing program, and I can agree, that if you buy a program like vegas, you expect something more when it comes to effects, and I'm sorry, I can't help you with the masking problem (seens I'm no editing expert, I just know that my film team don't use vegas for editing effects...

    When I was doing editing I was using WAX to do greenscreen work with, I agree Sony Vegas sucks.

    Yeah, I was using WAX, too. Which was free (free=AWESOME). I thought I was buying Vegas Pro, not Vegas Movie Studio Platinum Pro. I got hasty. The downside of online shopping.

    Kdenlive is a great movie making program, its equal would be sony vegas pro. Except kdenlive is completely free and opensource. Only problem for most people its only available for linux. Glad i run linux cause kdenlive is awesome.

    Does anyone know of a opensource video editor that has a masking tool? I was really looking for that.
