Another upgrade offer on Sony software

I got an email from Sony the other day with special pricing and free extras on upgrades to Vegas Pro 9, Sound Forge 10 and Acid Pro 7.
It might be enough for a fence sitter to finally take the plunge :-)
Sony Creative Software for the details.

Wow, I was going to write how this wasn't a great deal--I thought you had to PAY for the extras. But no, Vegas 9 upgrade, support, and a training DVD for $150

Actually, a pretty darn good deal.

Order placed!

There's a vacant spot on the fence where I fell off. Great deal... couldn't resist, this time.

I would say the killer upgrade is going from Vegas Movie Studio to Vegas Pro for $149.95

Not sure if this will answer your question but give it a try:

Is Vegas 9 worth the upgrade from 8?

So when I received the promo email it put me back on the fence again. And just when I've become comfortable with staying with 8c. I'm even running it (non-supported) on a Windows 7 laptop without any problems, so far.

Does anyone have experience with the Sony Vegas Seminar Series?

I'll probably still stay with 8c because I just don't need the small additions and improvements in 9. However, it remains tempting. I wish there was one thing in 9 that I thought I had to have.

How well does Vegas 9 render work with a large amount of photos? I seem to always have render problems with even resized png photos. .

Is this for US only ? When I put my Vegas Pro SN for the upgrade, in I got this :

"The serial number you entered is not a valid serial number for this upgrade purchase. Please try again."

???

David, photo support was improved in 9.

Ron, my best suggestion is to contact Sony Customer Service and ask them exactly that question.

I have found Vegas 9 to be a waste of money. I find 8 to be faster, and it runs much better overall for me. 9 is buggy and I strongly dislike it, been using it for months, and I keep going back to Vegas 8. If you have extra money to toss around or need the new features, try it. If your money is tight I would recommend not spending it on Vegas 9.

And yet, for others, 9 is working fine.

This is the fine print from the email. Certainly doesn't say US only.
