I picked up Sony Vegas 14 at HumbleBundle a while back, and finally got around to installing it.
I want to make a vid. I want to make a vid I know damn well nobody else will make, so I guess I gotta learn vidding.
However, the vid I want to make is complicated and involves several sources from different eras, which I know is a pain. So first, I gotta make an easy-for-beginners vid to get used to the software.
Criteria for beginner vidding:
* Ideally, single video source (a movie or single episode)
* Video source you don't mind watching a zillion times because you don't know what you're doing so you're going to see a LOT of it
* Song you don't mind hearing a zillion times, for the same reason
* Not your dream vid project - this is not going to be perfect
Various other vidding tips apply: something visually interesting, song that has enough "story" or tempo changes to give you some structure, avoid songs or vid material that's been used lots of times unless you want to be The New Version of one of those.
I figured out what I want to do. ( I think I'm ready to try this )
