Re: Is it true that Vegas is DEAD?

Thanks, Steven. Appreciate the comments. Yes, I designed Excalibur to work in a way that made sense to me and certainly sought the opinion of several other editors in the process.

Re: Is it true that Vegas is DEAD?

unfortunately, judging from the reports already in from nab, yes... vegas passed away peacefully in its sleep after a year long battle with public perceptions..

Re: Is it true that Vegas is DEAD?

just presuming, as it's all we've got to go on ;-(

that said, have read there was no one from scs at nab to answer any questions, which doesn't bode well.

i'll be more than happy if it's a case of premature burial.

NAB 2016 - No Sony Creative Software Showing??? - Sony Vegas Pro - Video Forum

Ahhh... well that would explain why I've not seen any reports of a "beat down" at the Sony booth.

I'll be using SVP for years, regardless of any further updates. I've played around with some of the other offerings on the PC side and only stay as long as I have to. I occasionally go into Premiere to round-trip some footage for codec-swapping. Used to use Premiere for image stabilization, but at some point SVP got better enough at it so no longer need to round-trip for that. Anybody who thinks Catalyst is an editor, will be really impressed with Windows MovieMaker.

Re: Is it true that Vegas is DEAD?

Yes it does seem to be MIA presumed dead.

Not trying to rub salt, but I moved to Final Cut about six months ago now and must say I haven't looked back.
I loved learning and using Vegas for all these years but the stress of the last couple took a toll.
The crashing, the nervous control S twitch, the random black frames, the woeful playback performance etc

Dont bash me for saying this, but now its just easy and stress free. Final Cut is solid.

I jump back into Vegas every few days on my second machine to do little things if the Mac isnt on, but its getting fewer and far between.

Everyone will have to decide where they go next eventually, will be interesting to see where the majority of Vegas editors end up.

All the best people :)

I to have begun my transition to FCPX; DVD production keeps me in Vegas for now, that and I need to buy that 5k mac to do my video work. I just built my pc last year, so it'll give me three years or so. I also find FCPX easier to work with, stays more up to date and has more available third party resources.

I did a core components only install as suggested in this thread on Reddit and AE still works: https://www.reddit.com/r/AfterEffect...ecurity_issue/

Vegas though doesn't with Quicktime files.

Re: Is it true that Vegas is DEAD?

This Quicktime issue isn't unique to Vegas, AVID, Premiere and Lightworks users have been discussing it.

Re: Is it true that Vegas is DEAD?

The issue is using Quicktime player to play mov from the internet. . Just use VLC etc and remove file associations with Quicktime player.

I highly doubt Vegas is dead.

It would be great for SCS to reinforce your "doubts".
