I'm looking for input regarding the pro's and cons of each file format for editing in Vegas Pro 13 (and future editions). As much as I'm comfortable in PPro CS6, it's getting long in the tooth and at some point it's probably going to stop working due to future versions of Windows 10 updates and I'm still on the fence about switching to Vegas Pro still.
I haven't really found a viable NLE alternative hence why I've stuck with my aged copy of PPro CS6.
I've been told XAVC works really well in Vegas Pro 13 but if I need to go into PPro CS6 for any reason - especially due to stability issues, PPro won't read the XAVC file format as it wasn't a feature at that time from Adobe.
I love the ease of editing Cineform and now that it's open source, that appeals to me but I also need to be pragmatic about how to integrate it into my post production workflow and with the Humble deal on Vegas Pro 14, I'm debating about the switch as I am in between projects and don't want to lock myself into the middle of a project in Vegas only to discover it chokes and have to rebuild from scratch either in PPro CS6 or Resolve (the latter I'm both investigating and resisting at the same time due to it's hardware specs which I can't use on my older laptop)
Yes - I've batted this topic around for a long time but I'm not happy with the direction Adobe has gone and I'm not impressed with their "new" features in addition to renting software only option.
I look forward to others input on this topic
