after purchasing Sony Movie studio 13 platinum near Christmas time. i felt like it was time to upgrade and go for Vegas. Once it had installed and i had gone through it. ashamed would be an understatement. i felt like i had been scammed as it was extremely similar and i felt like i had just spent £350 just to get some more effects and having to pay an extra £200 just to get a beat reactor. that was the main thing i wanted in this, and when finding out i had to pay more money. i felt like i had wasted my money for no reason. Movie Studio was amazing. all i did was buy extra effects and the cursor moves slower is not as precise on the timeline and makes awful noises it when trying to get a point right. i would like to know if i could get rid of this feature and reset the timeline cursor to the one in movie studio. also i don't know if i can get a refund after registering the software. i think i might just go get adobe premiere and after effects because at least i don't have to pay tonnes of money just to get some effects. so all in all i am ashamed and disappointed at sony vegas 13. i advise people to go for movie studio instead. because thy are the same minus a few effects.
