Any more news on this release? I've had 9.0 sitting here in a box next to my system (as I noticed a few others here have as well) and I'm curious if I should make the jump and go ahead and install this thing. :)

None here. I might not ever install 9. Since I'm not on HD, from what I have heard, it offers me nothing. I simply purchased it "just in case I jump" (to HD) and just in case it helped in some way.

You guys that aren't shooting HD(V) because of this problem have been missing out.

I give you one word, NeoScene. It smooths out the editing process, improves the playback from the time line.

If you are running a lot of filters and correction, it won't play back realtime. but you know what, in my experiences with Premiere, and seeing what you have to do with Final Cut, I don't think its anything that much different. On the other hand, rendering in Vegas works very fast, so you can render a sections as you edit to preview what is going on.

Incidentally, I have been using 9 for a couple of months now with out significant issues.

Jon you can install it because it won't interfere with Vegas 8. Just remember that any project saved in 9 cannot be opened in 8, so if you run into issues you're stuck with 9 till your project is done.

Just download the update, don't istall the disc as it is unnecessary.

So do we think the 9.0a update at least solved the majority of 'issues' that were plentiful with the 9.0 release?

I've seen here and in other threads some stuff not quite fixed as advertised, but I'm mostly concerned with performance oriented issues such as timeline playback, etc. I'll go ahead and install it since it will play nicely with 8. Thanks for the update Jeff..

There appears to be a GIANT bug with the generated text. I don't know if it just cropped up in the 9a update or if it was also in the 9.0 version. But many people are losing all the text in their project when they reopen the project. It all reverts back to the default SAMPLE TEXT.

My issue with it is if you copy the clips from one timeline into another instance of Vegas, and if there is text involved, you lose your text, it's really strange.

There are certainly plenty of issues still unresolved, but you'll have to read around here to find out more. I haven't used it enought at this point as some others have.

Jeff, unfortunately Terry isn't kidding.
Other Vegas forums (especially the Sony one) are full of people having all kinds of problems with generated media.
Numerous reports have been submitted but nothing from SCS so far :-(

Fwiw, I recently downloaded 9a and a project I did with 9 opened with the generated media remaining intact - it did not go back to "Sample Text". Perhaps this means it is an issue between pre-9 versions & 9a? I mention it in case it it helps solve the issue.

I completely agree. It makes a big difference. MPEG, including HDV, has no business on the timeline.
