Hi, I'm Steve Grisetti, and welcome to Sony Vegas Pro, Essential Training. In this course, we'll take a deep look at this program from the basics of setting up a project and adding media, to outputting your finished piece. I'll start by showing you how to open a project, and how to get your video files from your camcorder or other recording device to your computer. We'll also look at how to add video and audio effects, and we'll focus on effects like color correction and chroma key. And we'll look at how to customize these effects for your specific needs. And I'll show you how to use the Pan and Crop Motion tool to create motion pans over your photos.

I'll also show you how to add and customize transitions, titles, and how to create animated special effects to really make your videos look great. Then finally, I'll show you how to output your video and how to optimize your output for whatever device or platform you're distributing your video to. We'll be covering all of these features plus plenty of other tools and techniques. And now, let's get started with Sony Vegas Pro Essential Training.
