Re: Vegas Edit vs Pro

So if I buy the $154.95 v13 Vegas Edit upgrade from B&H Video, I qualify for the free upgrade from v13 to the new version from Magix?

Re: Vegas Edit vs Pro

Looks like B&H Photo only has the boxed version of v13 now for $179. I wonder how easy it is to get the free upgrade from Magix?

What B&H Photo is offering is the Sony Vegas Pro 13, not the Magix Vegas Pro 13. There was a deal offered back in July/August to buy v13 for $199 and get free v14 when released. It appears the purchase had to be through Magix. That deal has expired. I haven't heard of any other free upgrade offer from v13 to v14.

Thanks, I downloaded the trial from Magix and registered to get the full 30 days. I'll if it fixes the problems I had with v11 and decide before the upgrade offer expires. If it works, I may go ahead and upgrade since I'm 3 versions behind.

Re: Vegas Edit vs Pro

I have earlier versions of DVD Architect and never use it anyway. I don't burn many discs anymore, and when I do I use Total Media Extreme, which is discontinued but still gets the job done. So it sounds like Edit is sufficient if I decide to upgrade. I really appreciate the replies.

Re: Vegas Edit vs Pro

I followed George's suggestion and ran the trial version, which seems to have corrected the issues I was having with v11. Since the website still shows the upgrade offer expiring November 18 (yesterday), I went ahead and bought it. I went with the Edit version for $199, since I don't need DVD Architect. I also installed the new build that came out yesterday. Since I didn't buy the last two versions, I guess I really shouldn't complain about the price.

VEGAS Pro 14 Edit

They have extended this offer through November 18th, but I just checked and it is still up, so maybe you can get it there.....

Magix Vegas Pro 14 Edit $199.00 USD, Magix Vegas Pro 14 $249.00 USD, and Magix Vegas Pro 14 Suite $349.00 USD.

Re: Vegas Edit vs Pro

I tested the link above with my v11 serial number and it still shows the $199 upgrade for Edit, so it should work.

Re: Vegas Edit vs Pro

Thanks, everyone. I downloaded the trial today, then decided to get the full upgrade, which is currently $299.

One thing annoyed me, namely that, unlike Sony, they donít offer a boxed version, but only a download version. So, I had to go to OfficeMax, buy some recordable DVDs, just to realize I grabbed a box of recordable CDs after I came home. I burned everything on to that CD (it only required 5% of its capacity anyway), and will keep that CD in my box for Sony Vegas 12 (the last Sony Version I had).

Re: Vegas Edit vs Pro

And now I wish I had gone for the $199 version. The version I got comes mostly with some Boris plugins (BCC), but I have no idea how to use them, as they are completely non-intuitive and came with no manual. :(

Hi Adam,

I don't have Vegas Pro 14, nor do I use BorisFX in Vegas Pro 13, but there are quite a few tutorials on YouTube how to use BCC in Vegas Pro by John Rofrano. These tutorials may help you get some use from the plugins.
