Are you satisfied with the new VEGAS PRO 14?

glovercover wrote on 9/20/2016, 7:17 AM

To be honest, I am completely disappointed. I love Vegas, but this update would be good for Vegas 13 two years ago, but for the new version is too weak.  Believe me, I'm a big fan of Vegas. But what is happening does not please me.Unfortunately Vegas 14 can be of interest only to devoted fans. New, young people are unlikely to appreciate the good old Vegas. I am sure it will affect sales. Magix if still plan to save Vegas, you need to change everything.

I suspect Vegas has been a bit of a victim of the handover from Sony to MAGIX, which is why it's rather light on new features, and we have the issues with plugins and scripts. I prefer to give them a chance and have faith that development will be positive going forward. They've already shown they listen to us by fixing lots of the bugs and including small but begged-for improvements like the 1000% velocity envelope and the resample setting.

Ha, ha:  Using Vegas every day and   really liking the built-in Vegas "spirit" -  I was one among many fearing what would happen to Vegas if Sony just gave it up.

Some may call this V14 version a 13.5 - I don't - and I have gladly paid the upgrade price to get this version with its innumerable bug fixes to be able to use and enjoy this great piece of a NLE for the years to come.

Reading the reactions of this release day (still missing the western US) Gary and his team has succeded in making a good base for coming Vegas V14 b, c and d updates and also for future new versions too....

No, i don't call it 13.5
It would also be great if I could continue all my 13er projects there, without to reboot constantly Vegas or the PC.

It is way too soon to say if I am satisfied with Vegas 14! Magix acquired a mess from Sony and it is going to take a while to clean it all up. Yes, there are bugs that need to be worked out but at least Magix seems to be more than willing to work on them. Unlike Sony, who couldn't care less about us!

When Vegas Pro 12 released first time, it was also worse... so much issue, I still remember - Color Curve bug! - but after one release build of 12th version, forgot which build - it is extremely stable. The same to 13th version.

I still can work in 13.453 which the most stable I've felt so far - but keep hoping someday I will also move to 14th later.

i'd have to say no.

the last email i received from magix was sept. 9, about movie edit pro. nothing about vegas and no way to upgrade on their site today.

in addition, i see many bug reports. obviously folks have gotten their upgrade offers already. anybody care to share the $$ for upgrade from v13?

so for me, the new project i was planning for v14 is on hold. i'll wait and see what happens, but i', terribly underwhelmed,

I think someone may be a bit cranky that they didn't get their vegas upgrade with a hello kitty reskin.

If you're talking about me, why mention the UI you will always remember HelloKitty. Look  Dribbble, there are many examples of good, functional design. Its 2k16 remember?

Not satisfied at all. Everyone was screaming for years now about updating the supported GPU's for better cuda rendering. GTX TITAN-X is still an unsupported graphics card. Every graphics card after GTX580 is useless in vegas. This is totaly unacceptable. And now you evend disabled {from internal's menu} GPU acceleration. (with gpu disabled it takes about 4 times longer to render in AVC) why woud you do that??. A huge amout of user were waiting for impoved gpu support and what do we get?.... We got a new vegas 13 with MINOR improvements.

Once the initial VP14 bugs have been fixed, I bet (hope) improved GPU acceleration goes to the top of the devs' backlog.

Well, vegas users kinda lost there hope on this... still think Magix made a very big mistake with this.

RealityStudio wrote on 9/20/2016, 12:54 PM

I'm not expecting much because from the time of aquisition to now simply isn't enough time to add new features. I'm expecting just bug fixes on Vegas 14, I figure I'll have to wait for Vegas 15 for gpu support. I'll try Resolve as well just in case to see how it compares though, although scripting is what's basically kept me locked to Vegas Pro for many years now.

La verdad pienso que Vegas necesita tener una interfaz oscura similar a Photoshop o Fusion de BlackMagic, que sea atractiva a la vista, el otro problema es que pienso que tienen es ustedes aun quieren poner botones grandes llega a ser molesto, porque usuarios como yo, que trabajamos en un portatil, agradeceriamos mucho tener una interfaz mas minimalista, que cada espacio de la interfaz este al minimo, por ejemplo ahora mismo parece Internet explorer y lo que pedimos es que se parezca mas a Chrome.

fhu wrote on 9/20/2016, 3:12 PM

It's only been 3 months since Magix purchased VEGAS. This update was more of a stability / under the hood alignment. I never expected a completely new UI or loads more features. Those things take time. It's only been 3 months. I view this release as a measure of good faith on both parties; the users saying we're onboard and the developer saying we're actively working. They're offering a stable platform that will suffice while they make the major / substantial changes. Again, it's only been 3 months.

Like IE and Chrome? Really?  That is like comparing apples to electron microscopes. A minimalist UI only leads to wasting time with more button clicks as you expand menus and search for the next menu or dropdown to find the next setting etc. That is like saying, lets streamline your hand, you have too many fingers!

As to using a laptop, while I know some use a laptop in a pinch, how are small buttons beneficial to pro users creating content on 4K displays? You think they want small buttons? You think they want displays optimized to a laptop screen?

Exactly.  I already noticed two helpful improvements for me:   gh4 4K 24P footage imports correctly, and playback of a 4k timeline is much better.    I am sure there is much more to discover.

I haven't received the download and serial email yet from the $199 upgrade, but regardless of how many extra features have been added and how dated it may still look, the workflow for me still beats anything else out there.

A little bit of feedback from Magix on this would be good!  Hope only goes so far, it's not like they don't know about the issue, yet it's still on the back burner.

glovercover - I would pay more attention to your posts if you said something!     You've indicated a general dissatisfaction with the new version, but you have not described a single feature you are missing - please do us the courtesy of being specific.
