Hi, I'm new to Vegas Movie Studio. I've been using a very old version of Pinnicle (9.0) for years now and following a trial of Vegas decided to purchase it. When I capture a dv tape to a *.avi video, how do I find the time / date for each clip? Can I stamp the date onto the first few seconds of each clip?
Days later... I'm not certain if:
1) I worded my question poorly and it's not understood.
2) I failed my search for a common topic - really, I tried.
Please, if anybody knows anything about detecting the capture date from a clip in Vegas Movie Studio I would appreciate hearing about it. I believe this is a common need and would be surprised if Sony has not incorporated it into their software. If it is something that can't be done or needs third party software I would be interested in knowing that too.
Jim, have you already added the clips to your Vegas project? If so, they should be visible in the "Project Media" tab in the upper-leftpane, assuming you're using the default layout. For each file there are around 20 columns of information, one of which is the date/time stamp, but it's usually way off to the right. There's a scroll bar under the list of project media you can use to scroll over to the date/time stamp column as well as many other fields. You can click on the date/time header and drag it left to a more convenient position. I usually park mine right after the Use Count column.
