Runnng Vegas on a Mac?

I have a copy of Vegas 8. I have a laptop that I run Mac Boot Camp and this version on now. Works just OK.

Re: Runnng Vegas on a Mac?

I run Vegas 10 on a MacPro (2009 ver) and it doesnt run well. DSLR footage are very jerky. Macbook Pro V10 on the 2011 17" works pretty well via bootcamp.

Not sure about parallels but i thought it might be slower esp with DSLR footage
