Vegas is dead and Catalyst is its replacement. This was made clear to me earlier this month and I wasn't even trying to find out about it, just mentioned to me in some conversations.

Doesn't work for Vegas 10. Not sure how later versions will handle that.

Re: Is it true that Vegas is DEAD?

I think you are relatively safe if you do not let Quicktime player run. Remove all file associations in Windows and remove Quicktime player from running in any of your browsers. That way it should not run for anything. Use other players to play mov files etc. VLC or Windows Media . Which is what I had done some time ago on all my PC's. The library files used by NLE's should not be a problem as far as I understand. I am sure that in the next series of updates all the NLE's will now remove the need for Quicktime.

For most people who do not use NLE's etc then removing Quicktime is a sensible choice and use another player for mov files etc.

Online petitions aren't worth the paper they're written on.

Re: Is it true that Vegas is DEAD?

On another thread there seems to be a reply to a poster from someone at Sony Creative Software support which states that Vegas 14 is being worked on, but there has been unexpected delays.

See, I heard the same thing from Alister and this is where I got this from.

This is why I spread around that it was indeed dead.

But now I'm hearing conflicting reports...

Re: Is it true that Vegas is DEAD?

i really can't understand scs's reluctance to come out with the truth. either way the disruption their silence is causing is going to be a major factor in the stream of loyal customers looking elsewhere.

As you well know I posted some of the publicity shots for the New Vegas 14 release which got released to the dealers. Dealers also received pricing information for Vegas 14. From what I understand dealers were told to hold off just days before the release which I was informed was supposed to be April 5th from memory. In other words I still believe Vegas 14 will happen.

Re the unexpected delays. I am hearing similar stories and that the sudden holdup might have something to do with the QuickTime issue and having to go back into coding to enable support of .MOV files without having to rely on Apple's 32-bit QuickTime support. If that's the case I am more than happy to wait. Time will tell I guess!

Re: Is it true that Vegas is DEAD?

Native 64bit ProRes I/O and DNxHD (container independent) I/O would maybe skyrocket them past any other Windows NLE at this point.

It's asking a lot for ProRes but not too much for DNxHD and DNxHR.

Oh I can Leslie: Division or corporate lethargy, coupled with diminishing individual career opportunities is the only reason I can see or think for the prolonged silence.

There's a telephone ringing somewhere in Wisconsin but nobody's at home. About time somebody recognised we're here. At best, this is corporate fear. At worst, it's just plain rude.
