I was told by an Indy filmmaker once that you'd get laughed at if you used Vegas to cut a feature film. I have no idea why. Something about "clip management" being bad. I don't really have anything to compare it to but Premier, and I'd say Vegas definitely beats that one.

FCP is top-professional. As is Avid. You basically don't get more professional than that safe cutting 35mm film. I think Vegas is probably middle tier, with Premier being bottom tier just above NLE's packaged with camcorders and capture cards.

The reason I haven't committed to DVDA just yet is that it doesn't have professional features. While a lot of the advanced DVD features such as subtitles would be nice, I'm talking about some basic ones like being able to write output to tape and being able to build a DVD9.

It's not clear to me that $200 for DVDA beats $99 for Pinnacle Studio 8, which has pretty amazing DVD authoring capabilities directly integrated into the editor. One could use Vegas for the heavy lifting and then take the MPEGs to Studio for authoring. (Not for DVD9s, of course.)

This is the one area where I think Sonic came up a bit short. I wish I knew what DVDA 1.5 or 2.0 was going to offer because it would make me much more likely to buy the current version now.
