5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT resource for learning Sony Vegas Movie Studio, April 16, 2010
This review is from: 101 Tips & Tricks for Sony Movie Studio - updated for Movie Studio 11 (DVD)
I had been trying to find instructional materials to help me through the process of learning Vegas Movie Studio without much luck. Frustrated by the seeming lack of availability of any instructional materials for this wonderful video editing application, I decided to search on Youtube to see if I could find anything that might be useful to help me learn the program. That's where I found many helpful video tips posted by Bill Meyers; the author and producer of "101 Tips, Tricks and Techniques for Sony Vegas Movie Studio". I only wish I had found his video tips before I wasted a LOT of my time sifting through Youtube videos posted by BRAProductions and another Youtube user named Mark Apsolon. These other two youtube users are self absorbed people who are more interested in promoting themselves and increasing their comments and number of views for their youtube videos than in helping their viewers learn something. If you want to waste incredible amounts of your time to "possibly" learn a tidbit of something useful here or there, then I suggest you go to Youtube and view videos on Sony Vegas posted by Mark Apsolon. You will watch a 15 to 20 minute video of him talking about his website and his random drawing contest for people who post comments on his videos and maybe he'll actually discuss Sony Movie Studio for 3 or 4 meandering minutes out of a 20 minute video. I think you'll find like I did that watching his videos are a complete waste of your time.

If you value your time like I do and really want to learn useful tips that will quickly get you working in this wonderful video application, then check out some of Bill Meyers Youtube videos on Sony Vegas Movie Studio and then Purchase "101 Tips and Tricks". I didn't purchase my copy from Amazon; I purchased it from Bill Meyers website, along with another video, "Tools of How to Video Production". Bill Meyers is very knowledgeable about using both Sony Vegas and Movie Studio and is an excellent teacher. His no nonsense approach to sharing his knowledge of these applications is well planned and thought out before he actually films his video clips, so what you get are short and concise video clips that get right to the point. All of his clips focus on demonstrating specific steps in accomplishing a variety of different tasks to aid the viewer in putting together your own video clips to make a complete DVD video production. The DVD is well organized and includes many videos that you won't find on youtube. I was convinced that purchasing his instructional DVD would be a good educational investment after watching some of his video clips on youtube and I was right! If you want to quickly learn valuable tips and information to help you get started in editing your own videos using Vegas Movie Studio, then I highly recommend you purchase this DVD as well as checking out his youtube videos; just search for Bill Meyers, Sony Vegas.

I completely agree about his YouTube channel. I found it and learned so much from just a few clips that are only a few minutes each with no pointless fluff or advertising until the end of the video (after you learned what you wanted to learn from the video) where there's a quick plug to his site. None of that nonsense where he goes on for a minute asking you to rate, subscribe, comment, check out his facebook, check out his twitter, etc etc etc like so many other YouTubers make you sit through.

Thanks for the part of your review where you mentioned that there's lots of tips on the DVD that aren't available on the YouTube channel. Hearing that certainly makes me more interested in the DVD.
