But it says 2003? Is that incorrect? You just got this one done right?

Here is the Walmart link http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=2623370

Amazon link http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...books&n=507846

Then there is the "INSTANT VEGAS 5" book, which is a different book.

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...books&n=507846

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=2622061

Instant is a small book. Vegas 5 Editing Workshop is a big book.
it's also a second edition, with probably 50% written content from the first edition. First edition didn't have a DVD, and of course, was on Vegas 4. Orange book cover is Vegas 5, blue book cover is Vegas 4.

Douglas, clicking "buy now" goes to Amazon and not the VASST shop, so I can't enter the DVINFO code, will that be coming later?

Unfortunately, only DVDs and live training, not books, can enjoy the DVinfo.net code. We couldn't get the publishers to go along with that since there is such a small margin in books. We pay almost the same price for the books as the Walmart cost! :-(
Sorry!

Yeah, I just got one too. It started shipping last Friday, so I'm not sure what that's all about. I've got the publisher checking into it. Sorry for the hassle. I just write it, they publish and ship it.
Frustrating every time, and this is book #9. Tech books are always slow, but boy the waiting gets hard!

Oh no problem and I know it's not your fault I just figured if it
was another three months I might look at a different product for the interim. Thanks Doug

I just received the VASST E-mail indicating Vegas 5 is now shipping, but when I click on the link, (to Walmart) it indicates the book is due to arrive December 28th!

I pre-ordered from Amazon in May (Amazon still tells me the item may arrive in June 04) so my question is:

Is it really shipping now, or only if ordered direct fom VASST?

If its now available, I need to cancel my Amazon order.

Any update?

Thanks,

Brian

Amazon should have received it in their warehouse on Monday or Tuesday. My copy just arrived today from the printer, and mine went after all the warehouse copies went. (I have to wait just like everyone else after it's gone to the copy/layout/print program)
But it's real, it's here, I've got one! VASST doesn't sell the books. Wish we could/did, but there isn't enough in the books to warrant selling them ourselves.

Douglas, just wondering if all the included electronic media are royalty free for us to use how we want?

Any update on this? I want to cancel my Wal-mart order and go somewhere else. Is anybody stocking/shipping this? Help!

Wish I knew what to tell you....it's out there. We're getting letters about the book...Maybe Walmart just hasn't changed their date? I've only got one copy here, or I'd offer to ship you mine. We get our stocking copies after everyone else has fulfilled orders.

Amazon does not indicate a delay (of course neither did Wal-mart)
I wonder if that's a better option. Regardless, thanks for the update.
