I'm pleasantly stunned at how stable Vegas Pro 18 has been so far. I honestly think this is the best version I've ever used (and I go all the way back to version 4)
The new tools I've been using that I wished had been there for ages have made my editing experience so far almost painless and have been trouble free.
The color match feature is truly astounding IMO. It's allowing me to match footage from my second interview camera to my primary even though their exposure settings were the same (still haven't figured out why they look different - but that's another story)
The 8 bit full levels feature has saved me so much time in rendering - I don't have to remember to change my settings before which I use to do all the time, and thus would lose valuable time having to render again.
Integration with Sound Forge Pro 14 is an added bonus in doing noise reduction from ambient traffic noise in some of my outdoor interview material.
No crashes, no lock ups... I'm beside myself in finally being able to use Vegas Pro to get work done quickly without fighting instability.
Kudos to Magix for getting this version right
