    Sony Vegas / Premier

    Hello again, my previous thread was about some problems with Windows Vista and Sony Vegas. So turns out my problem was with Sony Vegas, because I installed the same copy of vegas on a Sony Viao laptop with windows 7, and the same exact problems popped up. Vegas started crashing everytime I have the software running, and sometimes it crashes while it is just loading the project, not even when the entire thing is loaded yet. Sometimes it crashes while playing video, while cutting footage. and of course while rendering.

    Is there a way I can export the footage / project that I have on Vegas into Adobe Premier? Without having to re-edit the entire project on Premier? I do not want to render, because no matter what format I choose, Vegas almost always ends up crashing. I tried .wmv, .avi, .m2v, and everything else that would be full HD video. Is there a way I can export what I have in Vegas into Premier?
    Thanks

    Hello,

    I've used vegas alot in the past, and before i chose to switch to mac I was having a similar issue. Unfortunately the only way that I know of to copy the project over is to render it and drag movie file into premier.

    I know thats not much help, but I dont beleive there is a way

    You could try exporting the project as an EDL (Edit Decision List) and importing the EDL into Premiere Pro. EDLs are theoretically a universal way to transfer projects between applications, although in practice I don't know how well it will work between Vegas and PPro. Worth a try.

    I am trying to go the other way due to Premier Pro 2.0 crashes.

    Must admit that video editing is getting to me. I am starting to feel stupid. I was good cutting and gluing film, Isn't it supposed to be easier with a computer? I just finished a piece that is under 8 minutes in Vegas Pro 9. How do I burn a DVD to show someone where I am at, as there is more audio and tittles to go.

    Digital editing is certainly a double-edged sword. There are many things that are much easier than traditional linear editing but the point is probably that it's "better" rather than easier. That's a terrible simplification but it's true - there are so many things you can do with a computer that were impossible with film and tape machines. The flipside is that it's become vastly more complex.

    DVD burning is a lot more frustrating than it should be. I met with a Vegas user last week who had struggled for days trying to figure out why his DVDs flickered like crazy (it was an interlacing problem) and he echoed your sentiments. Whatever happened to just hitting the record button on the master tape machine?

    Anyway, I can't remember the exact steps to exporting to DVD in Vegas but it's relatively simple. As always there is more than one way to do it, but IIRC there's fairly obvious button and/or menu item to render/export as DVD. Perhaps one of the Vegas users here could be more specific.
