I'm a huge fan of Bill Myer's video tutorials.

I think Steve Grisetti has some useful tutorials as well.

Steve's Muvipix site has lots of goodies as well.

Hi Ive added a couple of tutorials on some areas that I wanted to explore myself: notably rendering quality and some basic slowmo and timelapse how-to’s. You may (or may not!) find them of some use at visionandtechnology

Thank you DocSatori, tim-frost for suggestions!

Keep them added tim-frost.

@Markk655 : The Andrew Devis' 40 tutorials are more suitable for Vegas Pro version even though both interface similar. So I have put them on Vegas Pro Tutorials section.

serkan, are you looking for something like what was discussed here recently? Or just the Pan/Crop plug-in to crop, zoom, rotate, or pan the selected video event?

Hello... Any tutorials on importing 3D files, editing and burning 3D blu-rays? Can anyone post a link?

Thank you

Hi, I have recently upgraded to Movie Studio Platinum and would like to know if their are any tutorials on editing 4K Video?

I understand that it auto generates a proxy file when I move a 4K video to the timeline.

Do I then load and edit the Proxy file as if it were the full 4K Video and create movie/mp4 using the Proxy file?

I understand that changing the view to default or low res will view the file in normal speed. Is this just the proxy file?

Any hints/tips on setting and export options for 4K would be most appreciated.

Hello everyone

i'm a new user of VMS. I was on Pinnacle studio 5 to 23. But the product was so unstable thta i was very tired of the product. So i foubd VMS and realy like lit. Now i'm in the exploring and trying thing.

But there is something that i don't find in VMS thta i had in Pinnacle effect. They had alot of templates to create some types of intro. Exemple: a sort of title that would containt a predefine background and windows animation taht you put some videos in it. I khow it's PIP, but i don't find that in VMS and i'm not talking about Titler pro 7 express here.

So, is there a place i'm not looking in the product to find that sort of prebuilt effect?
