Pulled the Trigger on Vegas 11 Today...

Despite the nightmare stories I've read about Vegas 11, I upgraded today from the old reliable 8c. I needed ACVHD editing and Premier is just awful. I've never had any of the problems others have had and I've been with Vegas since 4 but so far I've noticed the preview bogs down and/or freezes up momentarily. This is the first I've used Vegas on a laptop so I'm not sure if this is a Vegas issue or system issue. I'm using only the onboard SSD right now and I confirmed that GPU acceleration is off.

I'll tinker some more. Right now I'm just glad to be rid of converting everything from AVCHD.

If you find that everything works, stop tinkering :-)

When you said "pulled the trigger" , I though you meant something like this :

"[i]... and Premier is just awful."

Umm, that's odd. Just this past Friday I finished a rush job editing eleven (11) 45-minutes videos for a client without one single problem, not even so much as a hic-cup, using Premiere Pro CS5.5 on an old system with Q6600 processor. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for Vegas.

If SCS can ever get Vegas back to where it used to be performance-wise, then "I'll be back."

I am also interested in that why the poster said that. Seems to go against everything else we read about it.
A personal experience?

I should have been more specific about Premier. There is nothing awful about the performance that I've discovered. It's merely personal preference. It is so contrary to everything that I love about Vegas. The four camera limitation for multicamera editing is a bummer as well.

Didn't mean to stir anything up. I'm just excited to see that familiar (albeit darker gray) GUI on my screen again.

In the for-what-it's-worth department, PluralEyes also works in Premiere Pro.

Agreed, it does feel very different to Vegas, bit of a learning curve at first. But once you start using it, PP sings. Still playing with PP5.0, even thats good. Never had a single crash or issue with it yet. Currently i am using both while learning more about it.

You can easily turn off the darker style if you don't like it (I don't).

Also in the for-what-it's-worth department:
- How many Camera Angles do you normally edit?
- What type of Vids are you Editing/Producing?
- Got a link to some past work?

Your specs list a JVC GY-HD-110U:
- What AVCHD are you editing?
