Vegas 7 this month?

I seem to recall reading that Sony would be unveiling the latest version of Vegas sometime this month and I'm wondering if that's accurate or just someone guessing? I'm sure we've got an insider or two around here who can spill the beans as it were. :)

NDA's prevent anyone who knows anything from revealing any information. Anyone who knows, can't say. Anyone who says, doesn't know.

Here's what I wrote in Sony's own Vegas forums back on July 26th:

**************************************************
I just got the latest Sony Media Software News by e-mail which included this section about the upcoming WEVA convention (check out the last line):

"WEVA fevah
Professional videographers from around the world will converge in Las Vegas on August 21-24 to see and hear what's new in the world of wedding and event videography. If you plan to attend, be sure to stop by the Sony Media Software booth to see live demonstrations of Cinescore software and get a sneak peek at another upcoming release that will have video editors everywhere jumping for joy."

**************************************************

It doesn't specifically say Vegas 7, but I can't imagine what else it would be. We'll know soon enough I guess.

To see Vegas 7, just travel to Amsterdam's RAI in September and visit the IBC tradeshow:

(I can't verify the link right now, since the IBC site seems to be down. The link worked last month though...)

Sony's announcements re AVCHD camcorders references VEGAS 7 as supporting AVCHD and since the new camcorders are due out in Sept, my guess is that you will see something pretty soon

The link worked fine for me, Jon. Here's the excerpt you were talking about...

New Vegas 7 for HD video editing and production
See the newest version of Vegas® software! Vegas 7 includes key enhancements that provide better editing solutions for HD, increased playback performance for both audio and video, a robust XDCAM workflow and advanced editing functionality for increased productivity. Also on show is DVD Architect™ 4, which is included in the Vegas+DVD Production Suite. Vegas 7 is available in late September, with French, German, and Japanese versions available in the following weeks.

Late September. I was going to pull the trigger on Vegas 6 now (currently editing on Premiere Pro and hating it) but I think I'll just sit tight for another 45 days. I don't want to sink the cash into Vegas and have the newer one come out outside the widow for me getting the free upgrade since that's usually 30 days and I'm a tight wad that way. :)

we hope to have a bunch of Vegas 7 news for you next week. We've been told by our Sony reps that anyone purchaseing Vegas 6 from us at this point (Aug 10th) will qualify for the free upgrade to Vegas 7.

I don't know if this is for all purchases, but I do know that our customers will be covered. I'm pretty sure that once the new Vegas 7 info goes live next week, all sales going forward will be covered for everyone regardless of reseller.

You say free upgrade? Is that only for certain people?

Josh: what is unclear? If you buy Vegas 6 starting from August 10th you are
eligable for a free update to 7 (in other words, you bought 7).

Oh, I thought maybe (hopefully) he meant anyone who had Vegas 6 was eligilble for a free upgrade. Wishful thinking. Didn't read that post carefully. Saw "free" and got stars in my eyes.

Is Sony likely to offer Upgrades?

Question: In the past has Sony generally offered an upgrade for the current owners of Vegas? (Vegas 6 + DVD was my 1st version, purchased last winter.)
