Can I buy your 11 for $25?

Maybe you should try version 12 or 9 which is quite stable here.

The last release of 12 is VERY stable & we push our systems very hard. (We routinely render (2) VEGs in the background while editing (1) in the foreground all while burning (2) Blu-rays from ISOs!)

Our Experience:
V9 32 was fine, but renders were slower...
V10e 64 occasionally had black frames - even if we did not background render...
V11 64 was totally unstable & early versions produced black frames...
Latest V12 release = no problems & faster renders with GTX 570 GPU

FCP & PPro have their issues too. IMO I can always work-around my Vegas problems much faster than FCP & PPro. Vegas is more sensitive if there is an error in the source video code so I sometimes convert offending clips to a less compressed format before reloading them into Vegas... This solves 99% of crashes in all Vegas versions... Can't do this so easily with other NLEs...

Also agree latest build of V12 working quite well.
AND v11 was difficult at times.

Vegas Video;

Even if you don't want our help perhaps your system specs and a listing of your problems could help someone else with their own search for solutions.

You've been a member for a long time, and you haven't posted your system specs ... ???

I shouldn't curse myself, but I'm running the final version of 11 with no problems.

Even so, I'll stop and save several versions of each project so I never lose more than a few minutes of editing.

Are you including the current version of Vegas in your 'search for a new NLE" ?

Download the free demo here:

Can you be sure you won't have similar problems with other NLEs, and/or there may be something else broken in your system ? I guess the other NLEs you may consider have demo versions too.

been there, done that - back home with vegas ;-)

it really doesn't matter what nle you work with - they all have their bugs, idiosyncrasies, anomalies, and last but not least, seemingly indifferent support when they go belly up on your most important project.

my fall back position would be edius, but 12 is doing rather well at the moment - let's hope it stays that way ;-)

I'm agree with everyone here.

Before VegasPro 12 release, I only use VegasPro 11 for rendering, but still had to keep all editing in 10th version.
But in VegasPro 12, especially after the built #486 is available, everything is so stable.

I know you are frustrated with all crash and crash and crashes, and I know how that feels, and sometimes I also worried if I had to be stranded in 10th, just like a few FCP users who can't go to X, and keep doing in 7...
Try VP12 first...

If you are using Vegas Pro 11.0 you owe it to yourself to download the 30-day free trial of Vegas Pro 12.0. I found Vegas Pro 11.0 to be unstable and I did most of my production work in 10 until Vegas Pro 12.0 came out. So if Vegas Pro 11.0 is your only experience, you really gotta take a look at 12. It's much more stable.

Many of us here have had that "I give up moment" with their NLE, but no matter where you go from Sony Vegas Pro, you are going to have to start a new relationship with your new software.
All the blood, sweat and tears that I went through with VP12 makes this software my b@#ch now.. I can make her do anything I want now.
