Ha? Have you seen this?

How about most VST plugins working just fine in Edius?

Re: Is it true that Vegas is DEAD?

Ervin, I am not seeing any mention of VASST plugins, if that is what you mean by VST. If I'm mistaken let me know.

Also see nothing about Plural Eyes, which I cannot even imagine living without.

Re: Is it true that Vegas is DEAD?

The multicam in EDIUS is the best. I edit mainly in EDIUS because of the multicam feature do all my audio in Vegas/Sound Forge though.
No Plural eyes in EDIUS 8 but is for EDIUS 7 I think . Don't use it though as all my multicam is cameras started and stopped at the same time for the complete show. So sync is easy.

Sorry to say, but you should have come here more frequently. If you had done that during the last few weeks, you would have noticed, that the future of Veas cs is quite bright in the lap of Magix.

Like others, I am seeing a potentially exciting new lease of life for Vegas. Even in this article I could find nothing that spoke of the demise of Vegas. What aspect of the report suggests we can kiss it goodbye?

Re: Is it true that Vegas is DEAD?

I just hope that magix also keeps updating codec support. It would be nice to have support for additional codecs like the codec from the canon c300mkii and not cutting down on some.

Re: Is it true that Vegas is DEAD?

Magix had (or I presume still has, it's been a while since I used their products) their own capable editing programs(I had compatibility problems with the disks created, keep in mind this was a LONG time ago, but that was why I looked for another option.... Vegas).

There are several options for the "new" company - integrate their products with Vegas offerings, continue to offer side by side extensions of existing products, and eventually merge them, or perhaps release some amazing new product that will blow away users of both product lines and give an upgrade path...

I've seen software company buyouts many times before, they don't usually turn out that well (like a company buys a competing product to "kill" it off in favor of it's own product, and any "different" products in other niches die off quickly in the process). Sometimes the companies buy the product for a few key features and technology, and again, the product phases out... And sometimes a company continues development and new releases under the new flag....

We shall just have to see, but a free download of Resolve is looking better and better right now.... I do recall Magix offerings were quite reasonably priced or free after rebate... so I'll stay tuned...

I likened it to an old car any major repairs are not worth it. You just make small fixes until you can no longer drive it. A small company like Magix doesn't have the resources to either over haul or rebuild it from the ground up. I'm sure it's a tricky to modify old code someone else wrote without breaking it.

I'm can't understand why is everyone is making such a big fuss? If you like Vegas and it does what you need you'll be ok until it doesn't. No point hand wringing about the future.

Re: Is it true that Vegas is DEAD?

When Editshare acquired Lightworks in 2009 it was one of the products produced by Gee Broadcasting, I suspect to them it was something which didn't quite fit in with their media management and storage products. However, they started a process of developing a product which was one of the first two NLEs. It had become a niche editor used mostly by feature film or long form documentary film editors, but now has 3 million users registered (Although, I'd quailify that by saying you need to register in order to try it).

How that breaks down Free v Pro v longer term useage I don't know, but during that period it has increased its presence in the NLE market from something that you had to be really in the know, to have heard about to a product that my local computer repair shop knows about.

They did a rewriting of the code, so it can now run on three operating systems and have promoted it into the education markets. So, I guess each software ownership change will have it's own reasons and needs to be taken on a case by case basis

Re: Is it true that Vegas is DEAD?

I'm curious to see where they make changes. I'd like to see improvement in the areas of render times, titles and better HDV/HD/UHD down scaling when rendering for DVD.

If they want to try to increase sales right off the bat, then hopefully they'll just spend some money on marketing instead of giving the UI a make-over. It may look dated, but for me it's fine. I care more about what's under the hood.

Time will tell. At least they brought the Sony software developers on-board, so that's a good sign.
