I think it's now become even more important to merge them back into one now that we know DSE doesn't come to the old one as much. I vote you force him back in there by merging them back and removing his choice! Sure, Edward is very helpful, but perhaps he will give his answer and then DSE will come in and add one little extra detail that makes things even more clear! It just doesn't seem right to have a Vegas forum without his omnipresence.
I'll likely never visit the Vegas forum much unless specifically invited to view a post there. There is a user frequently in that forum that has been significantly dishonest with the community and deliberately harmed my name and stole from my business. Since that occurence, I've stayed fairly away from that particular fora and others that this person frequents, and likely will continue to do so.
AFAIK, Edward doesn't shoot HD, and HD is growing in leaps and bounds whether it's Panasonic, Canon, JVC, Sanyo, or as traffic in the forum indicates, it's a good idea to have both anyway.

I too would like to see the forums stay separate. I agree with Spot, Edward does a great job of supporting the Vegas SD forum and it is rare that I see a question that he hasnít already answered first. I like having a separate HDV forum for Vegas because I know the questions will be about what Iím doing, which is working in HD.

I would probably miss the HD questions in the sea of SD questions if the forums were joined. The more narrow the scope the less noise you have to contend with. Please keep the Vegas HDV forum separate.

About the thread I started about the problems I had with DVD Architect, did I put it in the correct or incorrect forum? My concern was getting the answer I needed. I looked at both forums and from what I could see, I figured I would be more likely to get an answer here than from the other forum.

One thing to consider is that as HDV progresses the need to discuss SD will soon diminish to a such a level that an SD forum will no longer be needed.

There are plenty of users of SD for now but I think that will change rapidly during the next year.

I am in favor of having only one forum. It is a problem having to decide where to post and having to search both to find the answer(s) one needs for whatever advice needed or to get help solving problems.

By the way, I have been up all night finishing up my DVD (thanks DSE) and have successfuly done so. However I am typing this in my sleep and so if this is a mess, sorry...

regardless of politics (*gasp* a bad word!), i think 1 combined forum for ALL HDV/DV for each application (one FC, one Premiere, etc.) is much better than having a split. why? for every 1 specific HDV or 1 specific DV question there are 3 nonspecific HDV/DV feature that has to do with vegas. and out of those 3 maybe 2 might turn out to involve either HDV or DV specifically.

that's just my 2 cents. =).

for example. i do HDV but had to find image stabilizer in DV forum... but will it still work for HDV? better/worse? adjustments, etc. ya know.
bow wow wow

How about prefixing HD related questions with the letters HD?!? That would stop HD topics being "lost in a sea of SD" topics.

Personally, I'm rarely visiting the HD Vegas forum to simply graze - am I therefore losing out on a wealth of general Vegas knowledge?

For example, the following threads:

Sony Releases Update to Vegas 6.0d
Does Vegas have web content output ability
Vegas users favourite titlers
Sony Vegas + ATI's AVIVO

That's 5 of the most recent 8 threads (all posted today) that don't appear to contain any HD specific content.

Either some thread moving by the forum moderators is required, or a programme of education for posters or (my preference) a single forum.
