    This is simply a “Feels Weird to Me” question, but why would Magix take over Sony Vegas Pro and not make their launch screen at least LOOK like it’s a product that still has some life left in it?

    I swear to god, every time I launch VegasPro I feel like my old tried-and-true workhorse has been “sent out to pasture” with the looks of the launch screen; just “Vegas Pro” and some really generic, relates-to-nothing wave pattern that looks like a 1970s motel art. Not even a mention of Magix, let alone some reassuring subtitle.

    When I have an in-person client session, I always make sure Vegas is already launched, because I don’t want them to see the launch screen image and ask me “What the hell is THIS?” or ask me if I’m using pirated software.

    It just gives me a sad feeling, after all these years of seeing the “look of viability”.

    You are not wrong,.. I also do the same, make sure Vegas is launched before allowing Clients to see it.. I think Magix calsl it diversity, but does not look professional.

    I can tell you that the engineering team for VEGAS feels the same way. I believe you will soon see some major adjustments to this product is marketed, including a more “professional” type of splash screen in future versions.
