I have been editing videos in Sony Vegas for over 5 years and because the lab was more of a tutorial for the project rather than a learning experience for an experienced video editor, I decided I wasn’t going to get much out of showing up to do the lab. This is just my personal reasoning, whether one agrees with the logic of it or not is completely fine because there is obviously counterpoints towards my decision. I don’t expect to get credit for the lab, but I believe there is question to be had towards the need for this lab due to its relation towards the class.
