Pinnacle to Sony Vegas
on Jan 3, 2015 at 12:47:47 am

AS some of you know I have only been working in the program for a very short time. I was using Pinnacle 15 and have many projects in that File format but sort of still in the Pinnacle mode. How do I bring these projects into Sony Vegas? To many project to do over again. PLEASE be specific.
Thank You

You can't. I can't be any more specific than that. It's impossible to convert a Pinnacle Studio project to a Vegas Pro project.

You'll have to finish them with Pinnacle Studio or re-do them from scratch in Vegas Pro. BTW, that was my entry into Vegas. I too used Pinnacle Studio 7 and when I couldn't get a project to render and the Pinnacle support told me I would have to start over, I told them... well if I have to start over... I'm starting over with someone else software and I bought a copy of Video Factory and never looked back.

Wow, me too, John, but I started with Pinnacle 8 and had just finished editing a wedding for a friend. After 50 hours of editing, the project refuse to render. I tried importing it into Avid Liquid 7 with mixed success, but like you, ending up starting over. After another 50 hours of editing, my friends had a freebie DVD and my editing journey began with Vegas.

Robert, I have had success editing with Pinnacle, but I found that it was too flaky and unpredictable. Too many times have projects gone down to the wire. The closest was a 2 hour in-house video for work. We had rendered out the first hour to DVD without problem and was able to start showing it, but when I checked the 2nd hour's edit, there was missing audio, so we rendered to tape straight back into the camera, and played the 2nd hour off the camera. We were rendering as the first hour was showing. We made it with zero minutes to spare and after some quick cable hook-up magic, connected up the camera to the AV projection equipment. Talk about going down to the wire. I should have learned my lesson, but it took 2 near disasters to get me to switch to Vegas.

My system specs: Intel i7 970, 12GB RAM, ASUS P6T, Vegas Pro 12 (x64), Windows 7 x64 Ultimate, Vegas Production Assistant 1.0, VASST Ultimate S Pro 4.1, Neat Video Pro 2.6

Sorry, you simply CANT do that.
You gonna have to render them out in Pinnacle itself.

Sorry I haven't use Pinnacle Studio in quite some time. You'd be better off asking this on their forums.
