thank you garry - your post certainly helps keep the fire alive even if it is down to the embers by now ;-)

I had to recommend to a client that they use Adobe Premiere CC 2017 (ugh!) because I was unsure about the future of Vegas. Nothing I've heard since then has made me confident to change my recommendation.

Why recommend Adobe Premier CC 2017, while DavinciResolve is free? If you want extra OFX plugins then pay $299 for the Davinci Resolve Studio version which is still much cheaper than Adobe Premier.

a 159 upgrade offer?? great, I just bought one for the old price the other week...

Having said that, Edius ( sems at the top of the game right now. Watching a colleague use it and having had a go at the test version, all i can say it's closest to Vegas I've ever seen in terms of its pragmatic design , and fast as lightning in preview and general handling.

The only really cool thing they ALL miss and that Vegas always had is the ability to drag clips into each other and make an instant crossfade. It's such a no brainer that I don't get why nobody else ever implemented that.

re: Radeon heat : I think it depends on the GPU, the cooler, and who makes it. I usually run ASUS or Saphire AMD cards and they seem to be ok. What sort of temps are you seeing ?

@TheDingo - Sitting idle - Radeon temps at around 50-55C... MY GTX-660ti sits idle at 35-40C and is alot quieter - probably due to the fact that the fan isn't running as mush due to lower GPU temps - I was running the Catalyst 15.7 drivers per Nick Hope recommendation

Gary, perhaps you guys could do a beta program to let us test the software and get feedback about bugs to you prior to release? I know testing software can eat up a lot of time (and therefore budget), so maybe that could help speed things along a bit by letting you all focus on new features while we focus on breaking the ones that are there... We're pretty good at breaking Vegas, I have about 15 years of crashing it under my belt! :P I'd love to help however I can.

Thanks for MathiasH for sending me to Gary's profile, where he says his role is the Product Owner at Magix. I know from a previous post that Magix uses Agile/Scrum as their development methodology. Congrats, Gary, on the hardest job! (From one CSPO to another.) Please keep listening to your customers; most companies don't.

Gary wrote that they are aware of many bugs. But are you guys aware of support not working very well? Soon, it will be 2 weeks that I'm not getting any solution... Even "we won't help you" message would be nice (but it doesn't mean that I will be happy with it). I only received one question from Magix 8 days ago, concerning not the biggest problem that I have with VEGAS...

Vegas Pro should have all the features of Acid Pro integrated inside of it.
