Re: Vegas Upgrade Offer

Don't wait for the offer in the mail, just follow this link (previously posted on this forum) and buy it in US$, that's what I did, no problems.

Exclusive welcome offer

The exclusive offer is for 60% off their web design software and I have three days to purchase it. Not as compelling an introduction to Magix as I would have hoped.
Well that is not a bad offer. For Vegas its the same as an upgrade from VEGAS12 and you get VEGAS14 free. If you don't have VEGAS its an even better offer.

Re: Vegas Upgrade Offer

Yes, but the offer I have been given is not a 'buy 13 now upgrade to 14 for free later' offer as I already own Vegas 13. I have been offered discount on web design software which I have no use for as I make videos for a living! :-)

Re: Vegas Upgrade Offer

The offer is only good until the end of this month.

If you don't live in the USA you can still order, however you're restricted to the download version.

Maybe they will offer you a good upgrade when VEGAS 14 is released. I am on VEGAS 12 which came with one of my Sony camcorders I think and that allowed me to upgrade from Vegas 11 which was the last upgrade I had paid for I think.

Re: Vegas Upgrade Offer

A message from Magix in the vegas forum said.....

Thank you for your interest in our bundle offer for VEGAS Pro 13 + 14. As you know, VEGAS Pro 14 will be released in September 2016. And we don't think users who are planning an upgrade to VEGAS Pro 13 so close to the new release date should miss out on the exciting new version. So any customers who upgrade to VEGAS Pro 13 between now and July 31st will also get VEGAS 14 for free! Those of you who already use VEGAS Pro 13 will receive a separate upgrade offer in September. Hang tight!

Re: Vegas Upgrade Offer

Plugin effects and transitions - such as those from NewBlue - will work fine in Vegas Pro 14. They do not rely on the "Sony" namespace.

It's only the scripts/custom commands that will need to be modified. However, it's a very minor modification (changing a part of a line of code from "Sony" to "Magix" more than likely). If you have any text scripts you use and love, you can modify them yourself and they will then continue to work. If you have a compiled script, such as my Excalibur or Montage Magic, they I will have to recompile to work with the new namespace. That is a very minor change and I will certainly make that change immediately to release a Vegas Pro 14 version.

The same thing happened when Sony purchased Vegas from Sonic Foundry. Every script had to be changed changing "SonicFoundry" to "Sony". So it's not exactly a new, earth-shattering, change we're talking about. The only issue will be for any compiled scripts whose author is no longer around. There are very few of those that I'm aware of.

One would expect, or hope, that Magix doesn't change much under the hood but I would be careful making statements like this if you don't have a copy of vegas 14 and actually tested and verified your claims.

Noa, having worked with Edward in a small way, as a BETA tester, developing his Excalibur, Edward would NOT make these claims lightly. Put it another way: Who do you think MAGIX would be sending a copy of VP14 to to ascertain IF their scripts, and so on, worked? I'm sure Edward is purely speaking about his own products.

Edward, thanks for your reassurances. Looking forward to using XCAL in MAGIXVP14.

Grazie

Re: Vegas Upgrade Offer

That was not made clear that Edward already received a copy of Vegas 14 to test and you cannot expect that anyone that doesn't know him, like me, to know this. That's why I questioned it.

And yet, Noa, you hadn't asked him directly if he had already received a copy. You didn't ask: "Edward, have you received a copy to test your products?" But you didn't. Why not? My response was an attempt to reassure you. To me, it was very clear that you didn't "know" him, hence my response and consequently I had no expectation that you did, so you are incorrect in your assumption, "you cannot expect that anyone that doesn't know him, like me, to know this."

Best regards,

Graham

And yet, Graham, Edward said "Plugin effects and transitions - such as those from NewBlue - will work fine in Vegas Pro 14", he could have said "I have received a copy from vegas 14 from Magix to test and Plugin effects and transitions - such as those from NewBlue - will work fine", but he didn't, why not?

Why not ask him directly?
