I have spent 2 weeks evaluating VMS 12 versus VMS 14. In the past, I have done many slide shows to DVD and hard drives. I have just started to transfer all of my old Sony DV tapes to hard drives, and I have bounced back from VMS 12 to VMS 14. I am not using 4K video. I'm not a advanced user like most of the people on this forum.
It greatly upsets me that Newblue addons have crashed my computer so many times before I decided to remove them completely. It is appalling that Magix could not get NB stuff to work. But, I had a chance to evaluate NB titles and transitions in-between crashes. Guess what, I really didn't like any of the new NB titles and transitions anyway. I didn't think they would actually improve my home videos and slideshows. The music pro 6 program wants to sell me very expensive music. Aside from a few changes to the GUI interface I don't see any reason to upgrade to VMS 14. Functionality between VMS 12 and VMS 14 seems to be virtually identical, except for 4K.
A few months ago, I desperately wanted to upgrade to VMS 14 as soon as it was released. What am I missing? Please tell me why I should upgrade to VMS 14.
