Novice or professional filmmakers who are searching for a middle-of-the-road video editing software will appreciate the capabilities of Sony Vegas video. This software gives videographers a way to add soundtracks to their videos, interlace separate clips and produce a final product that they can give to their friends or family.

Sony Vegas video has an intuitive interface that should help most amateurs make their way around the software. While it is simpler than higher-end video editing applications, there is a small learning curve to get past. The software does come with an excellent help section, though, and there is documentation to answer almost any question.

Sony Vegas allows the user to import raw video and incorporate special effects, subtitles, soundtracks and filters. Its interface allows for previewing imported media and any current projects that are being worked on. If the user gets stuck on completing a task, the Show Me How tutorials offer assistance by guiding a user through steps that need to be accomplished to cut or splice together separate clips, add transitions or incorporate special effects. The Show Me How guides are a great help for beginners who are visual learners and don't get much out of reading directions in a manual.

The software also has the capability of DVD and Blu-ray disc creation. Customized menus and graphics can be incorporated into a final disc that can be played for private screenings or at family get-togethers. For those individuals who just want to watch their creations online, Sony Vegas video has incorporated an online sharing function that allows a user the ability to directly upload their video to YouTube or IMDB.

Taking the time and patience to discover how the software works will arm novice editors with a powerful tool that they can use to help them create fantastic videos. Here are some pros and cons of Sony Vegas video that give a synopsis of the software's strengths and weaknesses:
