I am getting the impression that when a new version is released, the user has to realize they may have invested too soon in the current version they purchased only a few months ago.

I’ve been told to learn another NLE just in case I can’t tolerate the bugs that seem to come out of nowhere whenever it gets close to the time for another “Magical” release that will solve “Known” issues you have with the last version and sprinkled with a couple of “New” features.

I have so much time invested in Vegas Pro.. And I always try to understand that development of this software is very specialized.. But I have never really been able to finish even the simplest project edits without having to stop my workflow and solve a tech issue with the software.

I’m standing by Vegas until I can’t afford to anymore.

Vegas Pro 15 Suite (latest update).

hi, got free upgrade from 15 to 16, and latest bug fix.

Using the new video stabilisation 1 major problem

The zoom level reverts to 0 every time the programme is restarted (possibly finger trouble but I cannot find the answer)

less important

The new stabilisation does not seem to correct for "rotational wobble" The earlier simple one does. is it therefore a great improvement?

Also many crashes but I assume the crash reports sent will eventually be seen!

The zoom level reset to 0 is known issue and will be fixed on the next 2nd update.

Anyone able to try out the proDAD Vitascene Pro V3 as a trial for Vegas 16 Suite? I downloaded the suite and can't get the proDAD to open as it's asking for a serial number. I see the price difference between the 3 versions of an upgrade are basically based on the extra 3rd party goodies one gets. Based on the little video ads they show, I don't really see anything that exciting in proDad Vitascene Pro3 or that Boris "lights" thing. I think one can already do these things fairly well with what comes with Vegas. I rarely use these types of things as they look gimmicky and I already have several similar add-ons from NewBlue. Anyone think these add-ons are worthy of the extra cost?

 

 

...a day later... Support got back to me and said there is no way to try it other than as a stand-alone via proDAD. Nice marketing, NOT....

I purchased the Vegas 15 / 16 combo offer so when 16 became available I would then get that as well. (and is the primary reason I purchased 15) I still have not received upgrade info from Magix.

Is there a thread for this given issue?

Have you tried checking the spam box, just in case?

Greg-Kintz wrote on 9/24/2018, 12:53 AM

That was the first thing I did. Checked spam filters, junk mail etc.. nothing. And all other previous emails from Magix have always come through without issue.

btw: Thank you for the link, and have sent a request to Magix.

Greg-Kintz wrote on 9/26/2018, 3:37 PM

How long typically does it take a Magix representative to reply?

I don't mean that as rude, but just curious.

Vegas 16 work very slowly, even on small projects. Even the elementary movement of several files on timelines terribly hangs. At the Vegas Pro 15 everything works perfectly. And all this for the tracker, storyboard and new stabilizer For example: https://dropmefiles.com/974960

Known issue - had the same trouble too here...

Disclaimer: I admit that I sing the praises of all things Vegas to everyone who listens to me, and I don't doubt that some users are having problems with 16 -- some pretty major -- but in all fairness, I feel like I should weigh in with my experience so far.

I don't have anything special at all when it comes to hardware and I've had zero problems with 16. Not one. Even the demo project that's let many people down plays flawlessly for me. I've not really pushed Vegas to its limits, and I've not yet tried all the toys, but I'm getting there. I do know there are some known issues that are being worked on, but I haven't done any editing yet that exposes those problems to me.

I write the above as just a plain ol' regular user. I'm receiving no compensation whatsoever from anyone regarding what I wrote above. I've never worked for Sonic Foundry, Sony or Magix nor have I ever had any contact -- directly or indirectly -- with anyone who does. I guess this is a classic case of YMMV. For me, my mileage is pretty gosh-darn awesome and I say Vegas Pro 16 (Build 261) is an amazing product that gets the job done for me every day. I think it's important for everyone to know about problems to watch for, and I personally thank everyone who's written about their issues, but I also think it's important for everyone to know that the problems don't happen to everyone.

Note to self (everyone else please look away -- the note that follows is a reminder for mine eyes only): Figure out a clever, kick-booty signature that suggests I'm completely aware of how to properly and exhaustively party on and that I, in fact, engage in said act on a frequent and spontaneous basis.

I was just building a wedding into and Vegas 16 crashed. I lost all my work. This product is not stable.Very frustrating

I understand you're frustrated, but it would help a great deal if you could provide some specifics about what you were doing when the crash happened along with some of the project conditions prior to the crash.

Here's a real-life example of what I'm talking about:

One thing that's caused previous versions of Vegas Pro to immediately shut down on me with no warning is when I add a clip that's somehow corrupted to a timeline -- even when the clip appears perfectly normal in every way prior to dragging it onto the timeline. It's rather rare, but it does happen, and it's happened to me often enough on important enough projects to teach me to save my projects often while I edit. It's become second-nature and I don't even think about it anymore. When that problem happens I simply run the offending clip through a converter, replace the offending clip with the newly converted clip in the project, pick up editing right where I left off, and Bob's your Uncle. Not to say the same problem won't ever happen in V16, I've not seen it happen yet.

Thanks Nick. Plus the new auto-save/backup feature is meant to help protect you against exactly the kind of weird, unpredictable behavior Nick is talking about. I'm not saying we don't want to get to the bottom of the problem, but as Nick also mentions, details are needed before we can even begin to consider what might have happened.

Hello Gary! Just to be clear, are you calling me "Nick"?

Not on purpose. I was confused about who's comment I was responding to. Sorry about that.

I don't take myself seriously, so I wear my "Turd" moniker proudly!
