Do you have experience with both Sony Vegas Pro and MAGIX Movie Edit Pro Premium? If so, I am interested in your take on the benefits of each. I have been using SVP since version 8 and while I love just about everything about it, I don't like all of the crashes. Most of these crashes seem to be related to NewBlue products such as the Titler. I am interested in the SVP 14 upgrade but not willing to pay another $349 for the Suite. If they offered it for $199 I would be getting out my debit card RIGHT NOW!
I know at least one of you will say, "It depends on what you're using it for." We started a video business in 2001 and did hundreds of video projects. Now the world has changed and people don't want to pay anything for a professional videographer. Last month I offered to do a wedding video for about 1/3 of what it's worth and half of what I normally would charge and she seemed surprised. She said she thinks she has a nephew that can do it. They don't seem to care about professional covers and labels and multi-cam videos. Many are happy with someone taking a shaky video with their cell phone. Therefore, I am mostly using it for Home videos which is why I can't justify spending more than $200. Thanks.
My preliminary assessment of MAGIX Movie Edit Pro Premium looks promising. I'm sure I'm not the only one considering other products. Thoughts?
BTW - I own copies of Pinnacle Studio 19 (and about 8 others) as well as the last version of Avid Liquid and even an older version of the MAGIX video product (don't remember the name).
