Sony’s Vegas Movie Studio Platinum is a video authoring suite of tools for Windows. It enables the users to create DVDs with professional and high quality videos. It accepts all the common video formats, captures video and also accepts High Definition video which is a plus.

With the program users will find powerful tools for video composition, color correction, surround sound mixing, etc. More great features which users can use are the “DVD authoring Blu-ray Disc burning” and creating streamlined projects and movie wizards.

Vegas Movie Studio Platinum gets along perfectly with cameras, allowing to Capture DV, HDV, and photos directly from digital devices. Users can also import Sony AVCHD video from the hard drive. After finishing, videos can be easily uploaded to the web for instance to YouTube.

Furthermore, users are able to sort, view and organize pictures and videos with the Explorer window. Other features the program offers are slideshow creation with effects, transitions, titles, and credits; making changes on the fly to video without rendering. Additionally, users can make surround sound mixing and panning tools to create surround DVD soundtracks, encode AC-3 stereo or 5.1 mixes without leaving the program.

In this version HDV/AVCHD capture option is improved for faster reading, plus it supports MPJEG-encoded AVI files. It now opens the audio streams of MPEG-2 files that use stereo AC-3 encoding, M2TS files. Ultimately, it can be used in Windows 7.

Although it offers quite a set of video and audio editing tools it crashes when having to render large files and crashes most of the times when working on HD video.
