For audio-only sessions (mixing, sweetening/sound design, VO recording to picture), I'm still using Vegas 11 32bit b/c it works okay with WAVES audio plugins. Anything past that (64bit) doesn't play nicely with WAVES. This has been a known issue since Vegas 12. I also use ProTools when I have to. I currently use Vegas 17 for video sessions, and for when I need to import ProRes files into an audio session. Here's my questions:
1. If I upgrade from 17 to 19/20, it claims "Increased performance & stability". So, what does that mean? Have they worked on the audio plugins stability issue at all? Does the thing crash less? today it crashed three times when instantiating a VU meter plugin on the master bus for no apparent reasons.
2. When writing audio automation does the upgrade actually change the audio level in real time rather than currently (it doesn't change audio levels until playback for some odd reason even tho it's writing fader movements with my Faderport).
2. I missed the 149.00 upgrade price, but it's currently 199 for vegas pro 17 --> 19/20 so that's not bad. Not a question, but ya'know.
3. After my three crashes today, I decided to "SEND" the crash info to their server. Then I got a link "for more information click this link" It started downloading the installation .EXE file for Vegas 17.00.xx.452, but I'm already on build 455, so what's that all about?
Cheers and thx if you have any thoughts on these issues.
