    Well, if I become independently wealthy, I’ll try to start my own video editing software that is as powerful and easy to use as Vegas but with even more features and better supported. I’m sure if someone did that they could easily get out ahead of Adobe, Apple, Avid, and Sony.

    I had a play. It couldn’t recognise footage from one of my two cameras. Identical models. Go figure. It then recognised some footage, and then later, couldn’t see it. I can’t see myself using Resolve. Stuff that is so easy to do is clunky in Resolve.

    Vegas 13 with Ultimate S Pro for my multicam editing is working fine for me. I have no compelling reason to use Resolve, even if it is free.

    My system specs: Intel i7 970, GTX570, 12GB RAM, ASUS P6T, Vegas Pro 12 (x64), Windows 7 x64 Ultimate, Vegas Production Assistant 1.0, VASST Ultimate S Pro 4.1, Neat Video Pro 2.6

    Well, Resolve does not natively handle Canon .MTS files (no sound is imported) so the suggestion was to transcode to DHxND in a .MOV wrapper. Which I needed SVP to do correctly.

    I hope someone who appreciates the power of Vegas buys it from Sony. Soon.

    It was files from Sony cameras. I like it that Vegas just about imports anything. No messing about or anything.

    [TJ McCormick] “I wouldn’t waste one more second on Sony Creative. Start learning Adobe and move along with the crowd.”

    On the other hand, every month you stick with Vegas is money you haven’t wasted on Adobe’s subscription. For me Vegas will die the slowest death possible, because I own it outright so I won’t be switching to anything until there’s a compelling reason to lose money on a feature I don’t already have and now need.

    I imagine I can stick with Vegas long enough that Catalyst will either get good or it may even crash and burn and Sony could restart Vegas development in just a few years’ time. The future is uncertain. I remember a time when Premiere was so bad I’d have never guessed it would eventually become so huge.

    +1 to that. I know people fought to keep using Lotus 123 vs switching to Excel too however.

    Rob, don’t go running all over the place seeking alternatives.
    You already seen the short comings, stress and costs of other NLE’S,
    lol….. No harm sticking with Vegas for a long time!

    I saw the death of vegas last year when the vegas develop team was cut down.
    I made over 100 videos last year with vegas and will be editing legacy projects with vegas for a couple more.
    However…since i am in the business and have already have adobe cc, i have started editing with premiere.
    First i have to say subscription is going to be the future as much as we dont like it – just as sony is now going to do.
    Second – i have real time, full preview playback!!!! something i wanted with vegas for YEARS.
    Sure there are a couple things that i like better in vegas, but its refreshing to edit without crashing, and full preview playback, and a lot of my plugins with vegas can work with premiere!

    I hate to see this day come for vegas, but we kind of knew it was coming.

    Geez you’re right. After all these years I’ve successfully turned into my father, who to this day still maintains a database using Informix in DOS. Of course it’s my responsibility to make sure he can still emulate DOS in a 64 bit Windows 7 environment.

    I guess it’s time for me to have kids so one day they can make sure I can still run Vegas Pro 13 in Chrome OS 27.

    “Yep, confirmed at NAB, no new versions.” – Under Sony’s control.

    Sony sells most of its media editing tools

    “Magix’s exact plans aren’t clear, but it already expects to make new versions of Vegas Pro and Movie Studio.”
