Is there any difference between the retail and educational versions of Vegas Pro?

I can purchase the educational version through my son's school at a substantial discount, is there any issue with this, such as being able to upgrade, etc?

Other than the much cheaper price, absolutely nothing.
I work for a community college and have been buying the educational versions of a lot of Sony software.

Hey, thanks, I have purchased Adobe educational licensed software without problem, but didn't know about Sony.

Sony | Vegas Pro 8 Video Editing Software for Windows | VP8Q

I have this version, it doesnt have DVD Architect Pro with it, nor does it ship with a manual, but i downloaded it from the net.

I am totally new to editing so this works great for me. Someday soon ill be buying the DVD authoring software.

WOW! That's a first for me. I knew they were selling DVD architect pro 5.1 as a standalone but I have never seen a version of Vegas that shipped without it. I have been faithful to Vegas/DVDA since version 5.

To the OP, I think to get the education/student version you have to be affiliated with an accredited school but it is the same software as the full version just an educational discount, if you will.

I thought I had read it in a newsletter from Sony Creative, but when I went back it actually says you can now buy a standalone version of DVD Architect 4.5 Studio Edition (aka the consumer version.) Sorry about the confusion, that's the difference between skimming and reading. if anyone is interested in the studio edition, here is the link.

Sorry about the confusion, too bad I can't edit that other post...

"Now Available! DVD Architect Pro 5 software with Blu-ray Disc authoring is free to registered DVD Architect Pro 4.5 users. Download DVD Architect Pro 5"

I noticed this today on the Sony site: Sony Creative Software - Vegas Pro 8 video editing & dvd authoring software - Free Download

The pro 5 is an upgrade from the Pro 4.5 that shipped/downloaded with early versions of Vegas Pro 8. I love free upgrades!

You won't be able to upgrade it to new versions at the usual upgrade price and you can't use it for any kind of business IIRC.
