So a few months ago magic had "buy pro 13 for 200 and get pro 14 for free". Now current pro 13 owners still pay $199?

If i had bought it back in august, i'd now have 2 pro 13 licenses and a free upgrade to 14. Instead now i will  have a 13 license and a 14 license.

how about giving a break to current pro 13 owners

No. $249 for Pro ($50 more than the July offer) and $199 for Edit.

That is strange.  Magix is creating a lot of unneccesary bad will among loyal Vegas customers.

To folks who have used version 14, how are GPU aided video rendering speeds compared to Vegas Pro 13?  I had been satisfied  with how fast version 12 rendered HD video files but ran into a wall when I upgraded to a substantially better video card than I had been using.  I upgraded to 13 and GPU aided rendering speeds actually got worse.  Not horrible, but noticably slower.  I guess that was one of the first signs that Sony had abandoned Vegas Pro.  I want to upgrade to 14, but once burned...

You can download the trial and see for yourself but nothing has changed. GPU render options are disabled by default now and need to be enabled on the internal tab to make it work.

A couple of weeks ago when I opened Vegas 13, there was an upgrade offer that was good for three days! I complained to Magix via their Facebook page and they said there would be another opportunity to upgrade at the special pricing. I opened Vegas 13 again last week and the upgrade pop-up came up again saying the upgrade price would be extended to October 16. Today is October 16 and I went to upgrade my software and there is no option anywhere on the Magix site to upgrade at the special price. I also NEVER received an email from Magix with upgrade information. I had gotten emails from Sony alerting me to the change in ownership, but Magix never once contacted me about an upgrade. This whole change in ownership has been a complete flustercluck. I've used this software since it was Sonic Foundry and have never had an issue with upgrading it. This may be the first time I've considered using something else if they don't make good on the upgrade offer.

You should be able to upgrade at the following at any time. You will need a previous serial number.

Thanks for the link. The price is still a bit steep for an upgrade. I thought initially the Vegas Pro 14 was $199 and the Suite was $249. I never paid more than $200 to upgrade my software from Sony. Magix is really gouging the customers.
