the vegas price full or update is a joke in 2021 !
compare some software full and update price ( without bug )
-video : Da vinci code or editstudio compare to vegas pro studio
-gis : manifold compare ESRI
-image : serif affinity compare to adobe
-audio : reaper and FLStudio compare to Pro tool and cubase ( 100$ update nice but USB key )
Please use the "Find" function in the forum if you need more detailed information on your request.
We have these discussions here on a regular basis with various - mostly new - users. (Or maybe it's always the same people who register under different names - who knows ????)
Please note, however, that this is a user forum where users help each other in their free time with various problems, with tips and tricks that come up while working with Vegas Pro. We therefore have no influence whatsoever on the business performance of the software.
Edit PS: I am also not entirely sure whether you are not comparing "apples with pears" in your product comparisons.
