Haven't been able to install V10 as yet myself however based on what I've read it is not what has been asked for. Basically you can Save a recording with BWF metadata and that's it. We still cannot render an audio segment to BWF.

- Recordings initiated anywhere on timeline in V10.0a receive correct BWF chunk.
- "Render As" WAV sections anywhere on timeline do not receive any BWF chunk.
- "Real-Time Render' WAVs do not receive any BWF chunk.

BTW, Real-Time Render always starts at beginning of timeline, and appears to record for 2 seconds after last Audio, therefore have to be careful if there are long reverb plugin tails at end....there are no user settings.

Too bad.
Almost was buying it but no BWF=no $pending...
It's been asked for years now... (sight)

There seems to be a fundamental problem with Vegas and all things timecode. No matter what anything coming out of Vegas will always have start TC as 0:00:00;00.
For me after 10 years more at the juncture of spending the dollars elsewhere.

Unfortunately I'm also at the end of the upgrade road due to the BWF support. Say goodbye to another 10 year customer who will be frozen forever at VP9

I still think Vegas is great software. I'm not uninstalling it.

I did however just buy Premiere and so far I'm impressed.

It's unfortunate that Sony Madison can find the time and energy to add 3-D and other large features to Vegas, but somehow refuses to implement proper timecode, BWF, or native P2 support.

interestingly enough there's echos of recent threads here.....

as tim just pointed out, it seems scs is more concerned with marketing new technologies rather than incorporating well established professional ones, an example being this thread.

however, nowhere has it been said or established by scs that they're after the 'professional' market in particular (let's not get carried away with the name either, especially when we now have 'professional' soap powders and the like!).

from my pov it would appear scs is after the indie producer, whether they be event, music video, doco, etc., to draw an apple analogy - a closed garden, where everything can be done in house without resorting to collaboration with other professionals (of course this doesn't exclude using other software to produce the desire outcome, eg. after effects.).

adding 3d added kudos, but little of any real 'professional' benefit, though ofx is certainly a major step towards attracting 3rd party plugins, it too is very in house when compared to working with other professionals.

as bob's pointed out in many threads, there's a sad lack of tc and edl support (precursors to any aspirations of 'professional' operability), which only reinforces my thought that vegas is always going to be an amazing nle WITH severe professional limitations.

thankfully, i no longer need to work collaboratively, so vegas more than fulfils my needs...

(Ok, after two-three big breaths...)

Been there since VV3 and stuck to V7 exactly because of this lack of function (and because I stopped for a while doing video - HD too expensive to my needs).
Like farss, I'll probably look somewhere else since in ''real life'' I'm a sound recordist for TV, doco, etc...and I'd like to be able to lean towards the whole process of recording (during shooting) and then mixing on small projects (at first, then hopefully at larger ones).
Without this option of being able to exchange with post prod houses in the (real) pro market, I can no longer count on Vegas.
I'll keep an eye from time to time just to in case the guys at Sony remove their blinders.
Gee, might as well go ''Apple only'' while we're at it...
BWF full support's been asked for years now, just do a search.

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.
