Sorry for the noob-type questions. Eugenia, when you say "Platinum 11 is 3x faster in h.264 decoding", are you talking about render speed? I shoot AVCHD using a Canon HFS100 (not doing any 3D), and currently am having no issues editing with VMS10. My system specs: Windows 7 64-Pro, Intel i7-930, 12GB ram, SATA3 drives. Should I upgrade to VMS11? Will my renders speed up as compared to 10? Will 11 open projects made in 10? Thank you - this is a great forum !!!
Where can I find a copy of your Advanced Uninstaller? I currently have the full VMS HD Platinum 10 Production Suite installed and may purchase the upgrade to VMS11. Since I already have DVDAS5 installed, I see no reason to upgrade the entire suite. I think I may also uninstall VMS10 first but don't want the registry leftovers.
I uninstalled 10 before installing 11 because I only want one version on my system. (My boot drive is a 64GB SSD so I try to keep as much free space on it as possible.) I assumed there would be some registry keys in common between10 and 11, and also some keys unique to both. So if I installed 11 and then later de-installed 10 I figured some of 11's keys might get messed up.
Eugenia, Birk, Editguy43 - thanks for the additional information. Since I don't have the HDD capacity issue that you have Birk (64GB SSD, sweeet!), I may just install VMS11 without first uninstalling VMS10. Also good to know that DVDAS5 included in the new Suite is build 128 as before (i.e. no need for me to upgrade the entire Suite). ;)
How can i pay the upgrade?
I'm from Europe.
Can i use Paypal? Hope so.
Simple bank transfer will be expensive.
And do i become some bill? Or just by email, that i can print?
What if i order the boxed version? How much will be the shipping cost to Europe?
You'll feel better once you see the new NewBlue titler FX and transitions...Some are new, some are old ones with a new style. Those work much faster than the old ones did (I think due to using the video card processor).
No, Vegas will never support PF24. Sony has said so in the past. Canon didn't add attributes in the stream, making the detection of the progressive frames very difficult. It would require a lot more engineering time, trying to create algorithms to "guess" these frames. So they decided to not deal with it at all. You'd still need Cineform to remove pulldown.
