Oh my goodness, that is indeed a crying shame’
Yeah, Vegas is a Pro tool but see it nowhere near doing that anytime soon.
Sometimes im wondering if the sony creative developers are following the industry! Anyway, makes no sense rambling on!
[Aaron Star]“Where is the DCP functions in Vegas or Catalyst for that matter?”
Vegas Pro and Catalyst Edit support professional formats like XDCAM, MXF, DXP and OpenEXR. I assume DCP will be added as a future format if there is enough call for it from customers. Don’t forget that Catalyst Edit is just starting out. There is lots of room for growth there.
[Aaron Star]“Has Vegas and Catalyst just become a editor for YouTube?”
I haven’t seen anyone use Catalyst for game videos on YouTube. The Catalyst forums seems to be filled with professionals trying to fit Catalyst into their XDCAM workflows.
As for Vegas Pro, it does seem to be used by lots of gamers yet it’s horrible for that task because it doesn’t support editing game capture formats well at all. I have no idea why they use it. So Sony is certainly not listening or caring about what gamers needs are, despite the fact that they use it for their YouTube videos.
[Aaron Star]“Where is the Pro in Pro?”
I wouldn’t say that Vegas is not a Pro tool simply because it doesn’t support DCP export. Final Cut Pro doesn’t support DCP export either and that isn’t stopping people from making Hollywood movies with it.
Most people export a TIFF Sequence and then make the DCP package from that with a dedicated DCP program. Vegas Pro supports TIFF sequences so it’s just as good as any other NLE in that regard. The fact that Adobe is first to include DCP support is irrelevant. Vegas Pro has had many functions before Adobe, Avid, or Apple had them. It doesn’t make any of them any more or less “Pro”.
I’m guessing the gamers use Vegas because they have found it to be the best tool for getting the job done. They have no vested interest in Vegas if there were a better tool available. That is certainly why I use Vegas. I could be using Premiere Pro, but I’ve done that and found Vegas a better tool.
That’s not exactly the same thing Mike.
Vegas is Pro in every sense of course, but would be so impressed for
its developers to start including stable cutting edge features that
turns heads in the industry, but so it goes.
But i simply customize Vegas to do even more than it’s competitors, lol
Thanks for the input all. My post was more for Vegas development to see a few more post from users on the topic. When you look at the simplicity of what Abode has produced in the video link, this is the sort of thing we would have expected to see from Vegas a generation ago at least.
I know how to create a DCP. Creating a DCP should be another “render as” option by now.
