Will Vegas ever be Industry Standard?

Hi there
I use Vegas, and only Vegas and it has served me for all my productions so far (institutional, not broadcast). Thinking towards the future and possible broadcast productions, is using Vegas going to be a problem? Am I going to have to learn Avid or Final cut? Will Vegas become an industry standard too?

Depends on what you mean by "Industry Standard".

If you mean used by the overwhelming majority of Broadcast Networks and Film Studios? The answer is probably not.

If you mean used in Broadacast or for independent films at all? Already is.

AVID is still 'the industry standard' in the first sense of the term. More feature films and broadcast television is cut with it than anything else. Period. Doesn't mean you can't get work knowing something else, but it does mean if EDITING is your primary interest, and your goal is to cut at that level you had better learn it, AND Final Cut Pro (Which has carved out the majority of indy suite, ad company and small pro-co market)

Simply put the more you CAN do, the more you WILL do.

I know of plenty of News guys I talk to at the shows that tell me they use vegas on the field and love it because it's so fast to cut their roughs on and then send to the studios.
