Which version of Vegas? If you installed the 64-bit version of Vegas, it won't see Magic Bullet.

I installed 64bit version to take full advantage of 64bit system and program (otherwise there would not be any sense to buy win 7); so shall I install 32 bit version on same computer and use it to edit fragments of the video where I need to use Magic Bullets? Will redgiant software be interested in Vegas at all - it looks like they loose their interest in Vegas and focus on Adobe and Apple. Is there nay other similar software/plugin on the market to work like Magic Bullets?

There is no Magic Bullet Looks for any 64bit platform. Has nothing to do with Vegas. I am using both the 32bit and 64bit versions of Vegas as needed. Essentially doing all my exposure, cutting, etc., in 64bit, and then opening the project and doing final coloring in 32bit.

This requires some care as it's VERY easy to run out of RAM in the 32 bit version. Sometimes a render in the 64bit version is required to bring a flat file into the 32bit version for coloring.

PITA workaround, but until MB gets a 64bit version, it's just where we are.

That's what I was affraid of; royal PITA;
I am concerned that red giant is loosing thier interest in Vegas, they develop many new things but not for Vegas. Do you know any other plugins on the market I could use for coloration instead of MB?

They offer just as much support for Vegas as they've always done.

If you want access to the latest filters, and effects you have three choices.

1. Avid
2. Final Cut
3. Premiere/After Effects.

This is where the market is. This is where the pros are (we are making exceptions for productions that can afford 3-4 months of professional post-color work here), and this is where you need to be if you are concerned. Buy yourself a copy of After Effects, and your problems will be solved. You can even use Vegas as your NLE, and just do your coloring and effects in AE.

Premiere does some things better than Vegas. Vegas does some thing better than Premiere. It's the same with any editor. They all have strengths and weaknesses.

If you want professional results, you have to adopt a professional workflow. And this means that you will be moving your footage among different programs to do certain work. Vegas is very unique in how much it allows you to do inside one program. That architecture has significant limitations as you can see.

In regards to my installation, I have both 32 and 64 bit versions of Vegas on my Win7 machine and 32 and 64 bit versions on my WinXP 64bit laptop. They work together just fine.
