Installing Vegas Installing Vegas is no different from loading any application, but certain settings, steps, and habits can make operating Vegas more pleasant and effi cient.

Before loading Vegas, make sure that any anti-virus software installed 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 profi le that keeps anti-virus off at all times during the capture, editing, rendering, and printing-to-tape processes. Anti-virus applications are notorious for stealing system resources and for popping up when least wanted.
