Fergus - strangely it never asked for a Vegas 7 serial number from me either during download, purchase or install. It seems the software might detect the Bullets Looks plugin from Vegas 7 to allow it to be a valid upgrade serial # that Red Giant emails you after purchase. In either case it worked fine.

If you want confirmation before you buy just email them and ask. They were quick to respond and were completely thumbs up to the $99 pricing for me.
Yep, I'd agree with that.

thanks chaps

did you install straight to Vegas 8?
I no longer have Vegas 7 installed on this machine after the last reformat.
Just feel a bit nervous about ordering it only to find it can't find some software for the installation to perform.

Cheers

Fergus - it's a whole new downloader so no worries about not having anything left over from v7 (except perhaps your serial number, but even that looks like it isn't required).

May God have mercy on my soul for suggesting this.

This may actually be another way of getting it cheap, along with another few bells and whistles to add to your arsenal.

If only I didn't have a little voice in my head screaming....it's PINNACLE, it won't work properly, and you will end up needing counseling for anger management after a week using it!!!!!!!

Is this the Magic Bullet Looks 1.1 for Vegas that is under discussion here? You get ALL these tools too? And the Tool Chain with the keyframer? Or is this an AE thing? MB Looks 1.1 it's NOT only colour presets? Correct?

Jeff? When using the DoF option, ie the blur function, does the centre of attention move WITH the subject? I think I know what the answer will be . . .

TIA

Unfortunately, unless I have missed something, the answer is NO. Bummer or what. Keyframes would make this just perfection itself. Ian Stark mentioned that you could probably do something with keyframes and masks over a duplicated track.
