Vegas Upgrade Offer

I am currently editing on Adobe PP 6.0 and it is getting a little stale. I don't do enough video to justify the $50.00 monthly fee the upgrade to the Creative Cloud suite costs and don't want to upgrade to bits and pieces of it either.
The offer is $200.00 for Vegas 13 with a free offer to 14. I know Vegas used to have a passionate group of supporters, and with this offer wonder if it is worth switching over.
Thoughts?

Re: Vegas Upgrade Offer

Thanks, Ron. At that price it's almost a no-lose offer.

Re: Vegas Upgrade Offer

But be aware that Pro 14 will not support any of your existing scripts or plug ins which will all need to be re-written if tyhey are to be usable in Pro 12. See, for, example:-

Re: Vegas Upgrade Offer

Likely doesn't matter if you are coming from another NLE or do not use scripts or plugins. I have only ever used the features that come with the software and assume there will be an updated set to replace the standard Sony effects. Main editor is EDIUS and that too has always required an updated set with each program update for the last few updates.

Re: Vegas Upgrade Offer

I just wish we had some Specs on Vegas 14. Has anyone seen any? As I posted in the other thread, I really need to know if they are continuing OpenCL support.

Re: Vegas Upgrade Offer

BTW, does anyone know if the Vegas 13 from the offer is the 64bit version?

Re: Vegas Upgrade Offer

IIRC, Vegas 13 is 64-bit only?

Ah, yes, here it is:
Microsoft® Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, or Windows 10 (64-bit)

That's right. Ron, but so many of us do use plug-ins and scripts such as those from NewBlue, FbMN, Prodad, Vasst and, a free one, Timeline Tools These offer so much more than the built in FX, including far superior stabilisation. for example.

Also wanted to make the OP aware that Sony has let go of Vegas Pro. It is now owned by Magix.

Leslie? Hadn't you read Gary Rebholz, from MAGIX-Madison input on this? No? Well, read this: RE: V14 support scripts? - Sony Vegas Pro - Video Forum

Re: Vegas Upgrade Offer

Finally got an offer email from Magix, so it's good to see I'm on their radar :-)

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.
