Getting Started with Vegas

Installing Vegas Installing Vegas is no different from loading any application, but certain settings, steps, and

habits can make operating Vegas more pleasant and efficient.

Before loading Vegas, make sure that any installed antivirus software has been temporarily

disabled. If a great deal of editing is to be done on this machine, it’s worth considering building

a separate user profile that keeps antivirus off at all times during the capture, editing, rendering,

and printing-to-tape processes. Antivirus applications are notorious for stealing system resources

and for popping up when least wanted.
