Review by Paulus on Oct 25, 2018 Version: vegas 16 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 1/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value for money: 1/10 Overall: 1/10

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.

Review by mikiem on Jun 3, 2014 Version: 13 Build 310 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value for money: 6/10 Overall: 8/10

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.

Review by videodan on Jun 3, 2014 Version: 8.1 OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 7/10 Value for money: 7/10 Overall: 8/10

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.
