So, I have been considering upgrading to VEGAS Pro 17 from my current version of 15 (I believe I have the latest build for 15 but you can check in my signature for that info). The main reason for upgrading is for the HDR addition because I have a Sony FDR-AX700 that can shoot in HDR but I have never filmed in HDR because VEGAS Pro 15, obviously, doesn’t support it.
I don’t have a HDR PC monitor but the main family TV is HDR capable. So it would be nice to be able to film in HDR and edit it in VEGAS Pro. But, with what I have read about VEGAS Pro 17, there appears to various bugs with it and it has various problems which has had me hold off from buying it and thinking about waiting until VEGAS Pro 18 is released this year.
Nevertheless, I’d be interested to know what the general consensus is for VEGAS Pro 17 for anyone who is using it. I know it’s supposed to have a 30+ new additions over previous version of VEGAS Pro, but just exactly what are the improvements because if it’s nothing too major I think waiting until VEGAS Pro 18 is released is probably best.
Just for added info, if it helps, here are my current PC specifications:
