The list of bug fixes is quite long so here's hoping :-)

Thanks EVERYBODY!

1] Load Times - 45 seconds for 1st instance and same for 2nd instance - that's like 1.5mins. The same was taking 3.5 minutes. That's a shaving off of 2 mins

2] Switch Layouts - after initial hiccup, 3 seconds!! Using Windows layout WITH my FXs more like 12 seconds to load.

3] Veg Revealed in Project Media Window! GOOD!

Grazie

Thanks Mike. I'll keep my expectation low, and hopefully will be pleasantly surprised.

Many fixes for crash issues. Also see that there is a fix for the text switching thing.

Mike, you are correct, the list of fixes is lengthy...wow. Even if it doesn't work for me it cannot be said they haven't been busy working on it.

Jeff, if all they did was fix the issue I'm having with previous version custom render templates not showing up, I'll be extremely happy!!
Having said, that, yes, the list is quite extensive.
It's killing me that I'm still at work and won't be able to test it out for another 5 hours :-(
Looking forward to reports from those that have tried it out.
Besides Grazie, that is :-)
His load time increase was another one of my minor complaints so I'm glad to see that it's been addressed.

Playback seems to be improved with 64 bit Version, much improved.

From the time I hit the icon to when I can actually edit it takes about 15 seconds with three cameras (using Ultimate S) and with one camera AVCHD footage.

I'm not ready to use it yet, but next project I'll give it a try and see what happens, guess I'm a sucker for punishment.

I am doing my first mpeg4 render now, and that seems just fine. Opening my project seemed faster.

So far I am just working in the 64-bit version. My old templates are back, so that's helpful.

Perrone, do you mean your custom render templates?

Another great added feature is the improvement of spacing in the Project media window. There used to be so much wasted space between clips. Now if we could just get that storyboard feature :)

I spoke too soon on that. It might work, but I need to install the update on my laptop first to be sure.

Perrone, I've been emailing a buddy in Toronto with the same custom render template problem and the update didn't fix it on his laptop or desktop :-(
I'll find out for myself in a couple of hours and will report back.

Confirmed. I just installed on my laptop, and my custom templates aren't there.

Oh well, I guess you can't have everything. I am THRILLED it's running on both XP64 and Win7RC. Both 32 and 64 bit.

Sadly, no performance gains in playing .mov files on the timeline though.

Rendered a 55 minute project with some AVCHD footage in 19 minutes with 9.0a.

Same project rendered with Vegas 8 32 bit and it took 13 minutes. Rendered to same hard drive, same folder, everything. Only thing I can think of to account for the difference is that the project was not created in Vegas 9.

This shows me that Vegas 8 seems to render faster on Windows 7. Windows 7 rocks.

But I'll tell you something, if Vegas 9 64 bit can render a 55 minute project with color correction and a smattering of AVCHD faster than 13 minutes I'd be surprised, albeit pleasantly.
