Version 13 adds some features vs. v.12, but it's much slower encoding on this rig [almost 2x in some cases] -- to me that's a deal breaker since regardless what you do editing, you still have to get your work out of Vegas as a video file. Prem Pro might be an alternative but I'm not fond of their subscription pricing model, & I'm set up for Sony with AMD/ATI graphics, while Adobe favors Nvidia. Sony may fix this in a later build -- 12 was buggy for quite a while... seemed like they moved it from beta too soon, or maybe have too small a pool of beta testers. May be the same with 13? At any rate, skipped 13 for now -- I may look at it later in its development or may just wait & see what 14's like. I've skipped Vegas version upgrades in the past for this sort of thing, and they've always come around eventually.

Sony Vegas USED to be a strong editor, but the more recent versions, it started to lose ground where it used to stand out - crashing; Sony Vegas crashes like crazy, at least as far as I have been noticing in the space of say, two years. Its interface and ease of use are still nice, attractive but it feels like, the more they change it, adding new features etc etc, the less stable it becomes. I am now gradually switching to Davinci Resolve lite and am toying with the idea of getting Premiere Pro. Today alone I wasted plenty time because Vegas crashed (on minor things, such as, applying non real time effects to WAV files), while I am to meet a deadline in finishing a wedding project. I have been using Vegas since 2004 (since the Sonic Foundry era) but I am saying good bye to it. Many still prefer it due to its ease of use, but if you want to do serious work, Vegas is not the way anymore.

This version, Vegas Pro 12 build 710, has a bug which prevents it from importing image sequences, build 714 was released today (9/10/2013) which addresses this issue.

Running Vegas since what became the Pro version was in beta, I think it's a pretty cool, pretty complete & capable NLE, with great multi-track audio features to boot. Most of the good stuff you can read in their ad copy &/or adverts... here's a little bit on what they don't tell you.

The big news is that this pro-level, cheaper [& 32 bit compatible] alternative to Adobe's Premiere Pro adds GPU acceleration with version 11. On the Plus side, that hardware assist works with ATI hardware [not just Nvidia like Prem. Pro] -- heading up the Minus column, with ATI graphics at least, that hardware assist may or may not work all that well, regardless whether you've got it turned on or off... with Build 594 [595 for the 64 bit version] Sony Creative Software seems to have gotten a lot [most?] of the bugs worked out, but as the release notes point out, they had to temporarily disable some of the ATI GPU assist features to do that. Depending on the video format I've had display issues on both the timeline & in the 2 video windows, along with some problems encoding -- while nowhere near as bad as the 1st build, with an ATI 6870 [the card Sony lists as their ATI reference] I still get occasional green frames displayed, & obviously if you can't see the video you can't edit it. Turning GPU assist on or off may help, or it may make the problem worse -- it's not something where turning off the feature puts things back to normal.

That said, HD video playback is much improved, & a lot of the FX [built-in &/or add-on] can use GPU acceleration to speed things up. The Mainconcept mpg2 encoder works much better than in version 10 [which I skipped because of that encoder], but not quite as well as in Vegas v. 9. The Sony AVC encoder is much improved, but still has weaknesses, I *think* because Sony needs it to work with the bundled DVDA authoring app. Encoding to Blu-Ray AVC is much faster -- it's fastest in the 64 bit version of Vegas, & slightly faster in win8 on top of that -- producing High level 4.0 video when you set the encoder to just under 22 Mbps or lower, where the encoded video will have a max bit rate of 22 Mbps. As you increase the bit rate setting between 22 & 25 Mbps, the level jumps 1st to 4.1, then 4.2, while the max pops up to 26 Mbps -- this also means DVDA will insist on re-encoding. With build 594/595 Sony has changed their Sony AVC encoder setup window -- you now have to select AVCHD if you want to set a 22+ Mbps bit rate.

DVD Architect [DVDA] is mostly unchanged from the version that shipped with Vegas 9, & in fact the only major change to DVDA since v. 4 [2/16/2007] has been the addition of Blu-Ray. As far as Blu-Ray goes DVDA works, but it won't do Java or pop-ups, it will only output to BD disc or ISO, will not accept DTS, & will not pass every Blu-Ray compliant video file without re-encoding -- as above it seems to be limited re: just what AVC video it will pass through without re-encoding. DVDA and Vegas are also a bit different when it comes to importing video, e.g. H264/AVC should be muxed to .m2ts [I use tsMuxeR] & mpg2 to .mpg [I use TMPGEnc mpeg tools] without the audio stream -- importing AVC or .m2v [mpeg2] into DVDA is possible, but it can take quite a while for DVDA to index the file, & then I've had problems later on in the project.

I skipped the 9 -> 10 upgrade last year because while Vegas 10 added some nice features, the bundled DVDA didn't, & the Vegas encoders were both broken & broke encoding in Vegas 9. Got an e-mail that everything was fixed, + there were new features, & the upgrade was on sale for 1 week, so after a backup gave it another try -- just restored the backup... No Thanks. AVC encoding is still slow, you can use common HD bit rates now, but quality doesn't seem any better than alternatives, many of which are faster. Mpeg2 smart rendering works like Womble in 9 [vbr etc.], while with 10d installed it looks like it re-renders every couple I frames or something. The 2 deal breakers are 1) down-sizing/re-sampling to DVD now adds shimmering &/or moire patterns, & 2) long delays when you put mpg2 on the timeline as Vegas 10d scans for embedded CC. Resampling was always a bit slow in Vegas, but it did a good job & let you use pulldown, so IMHO it was often worth it -- not with 10d. Putting audio on the timeline, Vegas has always had a delay as it built the waveforms that are displayed -- that delay is now 3 or 4x worse as 10d scans mppg2 for CC, & the only way I see to turn it off is to click cancel, which cancels building waveforms too. There may be other problems but that's as far as I went, since I don't see the value in paying $170 [even if it is on sale] to step backwards.

FWIW late last year after trying maybe a dozen alternatives, I spent a portion of the money I would have spent on the Vegas 10 upgrade, upgrading both Nero & Roxio suites... Vegas is the better editor, but Nero's getting closer, has better/faster [Blu-Ray compliant] AVC encoding, & multi-channel audio handling/encoding is surprisingly nice in the bundled audio app. Roxio 2011's encoders work for me now, & both resampling/re-sizing & encoding are extremely fast. Negatives are: when ATI GPU accel is on down-sizing is prone to the same shimmering & moire patterns as Vegas 10d, audio handling isn't great, DVD mpg2 isn't vbr, & creating new BD AVC profiles doesn't work for me. Neither Nero or Roxio will create DVD mpg2 with pull-down -- both output regular 29.976 fps -- but they will import/use more non-camera video formats than Vegas... I use both along with Vegas to make up for it's shortcomings.

Just want to say to the previous two posters that it does offer smart rendering for mpeg2 but In order to perform rendering without recompression, the width, height, frame rate, field order, profile, level, and bit rate of the source media, project settings, and rendering template must match.

I did this last night and found out you need a mpg with cbr bitrate as a input file and output with the same bitrate because it doesn't accept vbr which is why most people think it doesn't work.

If you want VBR and CBR smart rendering use Videoredo.

I've been using Vegas ever since it existed. Especially became interested in it since nothing beats the User Interface and operability/reliable production quality of Sound Forge in audio, and at the time I was looking for a decent mixer for multiple audio-tracks, which Vegas offered. Since it derives from the same creators who seem to know exactly what a user wants with his/her mouse and work environment (namely those behind SoundForge), I was everything but disappointed when I used Vegas the first time. It surpassed all my expectations.

Then Vegas grew into a major video-editing suite, and I had to say goodbye to all of Adobe's competing software. Premiere is now in the shades of Vegas Pro 8. It's ugly, instable, slow and unintuitive (on a x64 Windows workstation), compared to Sony's Vegas.
At studios I had to work with Final Cut Pro (4, 5 and 6, which is almost the same as Adobe's Premiere, in my opinion) and EDIUS Pro v3 and 4 (as well as with Edius Neo), but none of them display the rock-stable performance and intuitive work-flow of Vegas. They just pale in comparison to any experienced Windows user. And I think that's just it: Sony Vegas understands Windows to a tee, its mouse-options, its hidden gems. Vegas is especially making use of what Windows is better at (I would say) than Apple Mac or Linux, and this is why it is so great to work with on a Windows XP x64 system. In fact, MicroSoft should embrace and thank Sony for this. Sony Vegas and SoundForge are what keep me happy to know and use Windows. The combination is just golden!

If I had to be critical about one detail, it would be that its Help texts are a bit superficial at times, they tend to miss in-depth explanations a user sometimes wants to know. (Premiere definitely beats Vegas in that area..) But then, I can understand Vegas' philosophy too; They stick to explaining just the Vegas options and details. If you want in-depth knowledge about something video-related, you can find it elsewhere (online).

The only real downside to this software is its price-range. I know FREE open source packages out there that are getting real close to Vegas in what they can accomplish, but they don't work well in the Windows environment, thus miss the speed and ease of use Vegas offers. Lowering their price to 3/4 of what it is now would make Vegas the absolute king in the field in no time.

I would like to echo many of the comments below...definitely the best NLE out there and by far the most stable, bug-free application that I ever had the pleasure to work with.

While some may decry that it's not worth the upgrade, Vegas 8 was a NEW purchase for me. As a new purcahse, it is DEFINITELY worth it. The power that Vegas gives you at your fingertips opens a world of possibilities.

The work flow in Vegas 8 is also fantastic and the flexibility of being able to import and export formats without the need for 3rd party software is a definite plus for me.

Vegas is the best tool out there in my opinion. As far a ease of use... you can't expect to get powerful software who does tones of great stuff (according to individual's creativity levels) to also be very easy to use. Movie Studio would be closer to that, since it is the 'entry level' version of the editor.
I tried the latest version (8) but decided, like other already stated here, that it wasn't worth paying for the upgrade. I was looking forward to new titling features but again, after testing the pro titler... not much to jump up about... Also, it does not smart-render my mpeg files, HD files neither...
Still, at this point in time I wouldn't trade my Vegas Video+DVD package for no other nle! But I am really hoping for a 'proper' pro titler!

I use Vegas 6 Pro, (the current ver. is Pro 8). I bought because the DVDs can be copy protected when burned, to some degree. But I found Vegas to be difficult to learn. I had to buy a book and a video learning DVD. I knew what I wanted to do I just didn't know where/how it was to start it. Like editing text titles in DVD Architect, I'm use to double click the text box and an insert text marker opens for text but not in Vegas, you go to a drop down box and select 'text edit'. So that is what the learn curve is about. If I knew someone to show me it would be faster and easier to learn. One of the easiest parts of Vegas is cutting (split) and deleting clips. It's right there in front, easy to find in help,etc. But Vegas is a very powerful video editing software. The audio and video tracks are on separate time line so you can edit or delete one or the other, or both. There are a lot of individual choices to choose for editing & burning in Vegas, what makes it powerful and complex. I will use it from now on.

The easiest Video editing software I found to use and learn, which I do not hear much about, is PowerDirector 'Suite' by Cyberlink. It is very easy to use to makes a complete DVD movie. There are many 'transitions' templates to pick from, for using between clips. And many action/motion 'title' templates to use also. I'd say if you never made a DVD movie before, if you get Power Director Suite (ver5 or 6), you would have a short DVD movie made the same day. (You may have to try several time). What i found best, is to burn/render the DVD file to your 'hard drive' first, rather than burn/render your complete MPEG-2 clips directly to DVD disk. Then you can use the same software or other (like Nero) to 'Burn DVD-Video File'.
---HOW TO:
Make/EDIT MPEG-2 clips .... Render/Produce (1hr.mpg=5hr rendered-in sony) to final completed MPEG-2 movie (.mpg) .... Burn/make-DVD to a (DVD) folder on computer hard drive .... (then) Burn your DVD folders from HD to DVD disks ..... = Movie in DVD formatted disk...

If you have version 7 and it works for you, check forum at sonycreativesoftware.com to help decide if new features are worth the $ & effort...

32 bit processing only works with some filters, alters some video color.

New Bezier curve mask tools not the best.

3D compositing is good but nowhere near AE or Boris. Same with new titling.

Still a great app -- don't get me wrong -- but probably not the jump forward 7 was.

Combined with Cinescore and DVD Architect it is by far the easiest and best editing/authoring package available. Tried Adobe, Pinnacle, Edius Pro and dumped them all - not nearly as stable as the Sony package.
As someone mentioned earlier other packages are just toys for beginners. The only other soft that can actually outperform Vegas is Edius Pro, but very resource hungry and pricey - need at least a 10GHz CPU and about 1000Gb RAM! :)

I just upgraded my Vegas 3 to the latest, 7+DVD. I'm gonna say the same thing - best NLE out there!! I find it hard to work with Borris (limitted edition - A LOT of limitations!!)), which comes bundled with Vegas. But that's Borris, so I'm tnot too bothered. vegas does for me almost all I want and am sure the next updates will do all I want. But really, if you want to experience it's potential, you have got to give it a try. I started using vegas in 2001, in the mean time i tried other high rated products and decided non of the others offered the stabiity vegas did.

A friend of mine turned me on to Sony Vegas

within 2 or 3 hours I was on my way to video editing ... all the things I wanted to do came easily .. other things I had to ask my friend but he gave me help over msn and thats all I needed

by contrast another friend of mine asked me to cut a bad portion off a short film, but all he had installed was Adobe Premier ... Knowing only how to edit with vegas and not being any kind of video expert - I gave premier a try (vegas was easy to learn, how hard could this be?) - After 45 minutes of playing around I still had no idea how to simply cut the vid ..

The only other program he had was MS movie maker (another program I had never used) - after 45 minutes I gave up on Premier - after 55 minutes he asked me if I figured it out yet - I said yea Its almost done rendering (in MovieMaker) ... it took me about 30 seconds to figure out and the rest was just rendering

If you want an excellent program that doesnt' require a bible or taking a 'course' to learn to use - go with Vegas.

Best NLE out there. You have to try it to believe it though, also, if you are a newbee though, you will need a bit of time to get used to it. After that, the only 'barrier' is your own imagination. Vegas gives you the wings, all you need is to learn how to fly.
None of the other advanced editors I tried gave me the stability Vegas did. I sm using an older version, I can't aford the latest for now, but have tried the latest and it's very, very good stuff.
Sony offered very good support in short time.
Look forward to future developments.

After trying so many tools (Studio/Adobe Premier Elements/Pinnacle Liquid/MediaStudio Pro), I finally gave Vegas 6.0 a try. I was initially put off by its storyboard style video editing. However, I later decided to give it one more shot and never turned back again. It has been the most stable NLE so far and has never crashed on me. Paired with DVD Architect, its a complete package.

Two Major Cons:
Vegas: A infrequent problem. After editing, the preview in Vegas shows perfect Audio/Video sync, but when the whole project is rendered, the audio is way off. I still haven't figured out the reason.

DVD Architect: Different clips cannot be put in the same timeline as a single title. It treats every video clip as a seperate title. You can set one clip to jump to the other, but it can introduce a slight delay. Requires a good mpeg cutter/joiner (I use VideoRedo Plus which is the only output DVD Architect accepts) if you wish to make spot changes to a pre-rendered video.

Great video editor. I've tried Ulead MS 8, Adobe Premiere, Pinnacle Studio 9, but Vegas is the best.

What I like most is that that it does not freezes during editing (not a second). For examle when you press play button it starts playing immediatly ( other editors like Ulead or Pinnacle freezes for a second). I can also scroll in timeline while playing the video (which is not possible in Ulead).

What I dislike is that it does not save DV AVI Datecode in Rendered AVI, but at least I found way to extract chapter points for using in 3d-party tools like DVDLab Pro: Vegas allows you to save EDL Text file. So i wrote a small app which extracts Chapter points based on EDL Text file.

I highly recommend this editor.

I've been using this program for over a year now. I tried to use Premere Pro before this, but found it dull and cold and hard to learn.

Vegas is a faster start, and more user friendly. I am sure the Adobe program produces results just as good as Vegas 5. But I wanted to get going quickly, and Vegas is the answer.

It is amazing what Vegas 5 (or 6) can do for any price. I have yet to learn all the functions of this sw, but for what I have done so far, the finished DVDs look stunning. DVD-A which is the authoring software included is also highly regarded.

If you are on the fence and not sure what to get, this is a great investment, don't worry, get it, you will not regret it.

I started out using Pinnacle Studio 8. A cute toy for beginners, but Vegas is for big boys and girls. Love it!

This software has to be the ultimate in low cost, professional video editing. You can create video that is easily comparable with any professionally made video....I recently created a 50 minute video of a corporate event I filmed and was blown away by the standing ovation I received. All thanks to Sony Vegas. You would need to spend thousands on professional video editing software that would be comparable.

Any advanced video editing software is relatively complicated....there is no magic wand software that will create amazing video. Having said that, Sony Vegas is logical. Once you understand the basics, getting to understand and use the full functionality of Vegas just takes a bit of experimentation. But the results can be outstanding. It's the best software for audio editing too. At 500.00 odd, this is a steal!!!

Sony Vegas is the best consumer market video software out there and one of the best things I ever did was invest in this. Fantastic.

It's user interface and workflow are unsurpassed in my opinion, assembling a movie is way easier than in other programs. Thus, it's very stable and "just works".
The real-time preview is a great addition and makes editing actually fun. Unfortunatly there aren't many 3rd party plugins available, but I hope this'll change in the future.
Another plus is the audio engine, you can't find that elsewhere.
Two negative points: I think rendering is a bit slow, and it doesn't open avisynth streams.
Overall, it's professional and fun, a rare combination!

Some months ago I was still having problems choosing between Vegas and Adobe. I decided to go with Vegas and am very very happy with it (it DOES NOT CRASH!!!!), however I was still thinking Adobe might be better. So I tested it as well, and I am ever so happy I didnt spend my money on it... Vegas does the job!!!. Obviously the effects and transisions are (more or less) the same no matter what NLE u use, but crashing seems to be a general problem with most of NLE's. Vegas will not do that (if you're using a decent machine). Just try it!! I've been using the trial version, am actually using Movie Studio for now, but as soon as I can aford Vegas, I'll get it.

Sony Pictures Digital applications installs the MainConcept MPEG-2 Directshow decoder to allow preview and playback of MPEG-2 video in video playback applications. If you encounter problems playing back MPEG video in Powerpoint after installing the MainConcept, do the following:
Do a search (Start-->Search-->For Files or Folders) for "mcdsmpeg.ax" and "mcspmpeg.ax".
Rename those files to "mcdsmpeg.ax.hide" and "mcspmpeg.ax.hide"
(Rename them back to the original name if you run into other trouble)
That should fix the problems...
