    Unhappy Tutorial footage

    To anyone:

    Just received my new VT 2. I also edit in Avid DV Xpress and Final Cut. Both of those apps come with "Tutorial Footage" to be able to try out your new software.

    Question: Is there any footage that loads after you install the 5 cd's???


    Thanks in advance...

    Not with my toaster... except some tutorial footage for Aura, but that is not in RTV format. You can load any avi Mpeg or still image (many formats supported) that you have on your system to play with, untill you capture something.

    In most, (but I've heard not all), Content disks, there is a folder, content/video clips. It has a dog with green screen, (for chroma keying tests), Miami nights, and two more that I know of.

    This is all I can find on my system here at home, but I'm "Almost" positive my Studio Toasters have another clip with two girls on a green screen also. I know I've used it before, I just can't find it here???

    This and the VTNT forum is a far more valuable resource than any training tape. Have a question? Want to do something obscure that isn't covered on any tape?

    Ask it here....... usually you'll get a quick answer.

    Thanks to all that answered.

    I received the same URL from NewTek support.

    But, even though I have this wonderful discussion group to ask questions of... I would have still liked to have a disk or two full of sample footage... along with a nice tutorial to "get your feet wet"!

    I also own Avid and Final Cut Pro, and both of these apps come with very nice tutorials with sample footage and graphics.

    So, would users prefer content to be on CD or on DVD?

    This is a great idea, Patrick.
    Don't stream it - TriCast it!

    Talking

    Paul,

    I would be happy with CD or DVD... but with a DVD you could probably get everything on one disk. Most people probably have a DVD player these days.

    Thanks for your reply!!!
