For projects which are more or less shot in the same order as they'll finish, then editing on the timeline is often the simplest way to go. Like Michaelangelo making David out of a block of stone, it's simply a matter of removing the bits you don't want!

But I hardly ever have projects like this. I will spend maybe weeks at various locations shooting footage, interviews, whatever, then these have to be organised into a finished program from a script. I use the Trimmer a lot, and usually create and name Regions in the Trimmer, which can then be accessed any time in Vegas Explorer. The names that I give these Regions are very important, as they can help in sorting them into an order which makes the assembly stage very quick and easy.

I use Vegas Explorer for everything, and create folders in Windows for Footage, Voice Over, Interviews, Music, Graphics etc. I hardly ever use the Project Media Tab.

All goes to show that Vegas allows you to work in many ways - choose the one that suits you, and the particular project.
