I have been using Vegas 5d with no issues and great results using my DVX100a. Since I'm not on the HD band wagon, are the other non HD parts of Vegas 6 that super over 5.0d? Another way of pitting it is if you take out the HD is Vegas 6 still worth the $199?
Only if faster render times, better media management, audio sync are important to you would you want to shake out the $200.00.
If you can save 10 minutes a day, 5 days a week, 4 weeks pays for Vegas 6 upgrade. That's outside of some of the other new tools. The Track Motion presets being back are worth a lot to some users, secondary Windows display is a pretty big deal, and so is nested timelines and VST, IMO.
It's not all HD, just a couple parts.
Yes I'm all registered with all the versions from 4 on to through 5d and I have seem the upgrade offers. I was hoping for 199 minus 50 burt didn;t get that when I tested the download of 6. It still stayed at 199. I hope the e-mail will have the Key Code in it that will do that. That is what I did for the Vegas 5 back then, but hey, things may be different for Version 6. I'll definately plunge before May 31st.
You are right, Vegas+DVD upgrade is $249 full price; $199 with the discount.
Maybe the confusion is with Vegas 6 upgrade (without DVDA). This one is $199 full price. I don't know if there is a $50 off deal on this. I don't get offered one (i.e for me, both Vegas6+DVD and Vegas6 alone show as $199).
