That new looks not very good compared to this one, and must people are likely still here. Really hate the new one.

Sony did not abandon Vegas, they passed it on and it continues to live. That said, I'm not a fan of the GUI on the Magix Forum. Hopefully, Magix will just take this forum software and its thousands of posts and just change the branding from Sony to Magix. Piece of cake.

+ >1 for John_Cline.
I like to read the posts from (e.g.) him, PeterDuke, Nick Hope, Marco and Grazie on one forum, not go around the globe searching for their posts.

This Vegas section in forum is not yet an official one.

It is me who create that thread section in order to find out how the Magix forum is and play around. According to our new friend, browj2 over there, it's quite possible that we may have separate forum for us, SF/SCS products users, just like Magix do to Xara, Samplitude.

This is still the most comprehensive and informative forum for Vegas users so why change?

PeterWright wrote on 6/9/2016, 6:17 AM
Yes, I am still hopeful that this Forum will be ported "as is" to MAGIX, so why abandon the best forum there is?

My user name keeps getting rejected at the Magix forum. It tells to keep it between 4 and 46 characters and not to use any special characters. 'Lkingston" fits that description but it keeps triggering the rejection. Hopefully whoever is doing the coding for the Web page is not working on the coding for Vegas.

MAGIX forum, GUI Layout are horrible compared to others and this one.

I've stomped around over there a little. I don't know why but it reminds me of the old Pinnacle forums.

intel i-4790k / Asus Z97 Pro / 32GB Crucial RAM / Nvidia GTX 560Ti / 500GB Samsung SSD / 256 GB Samsung SSD / 2-WDC 4TB Black HDD's / 2-WDC 1TB HDD's / 2-HP 23" Monitors / Various MIDI gear, controllers and audio interfaces

Why? Because this forum style, navigation, search access and data set is the BEST !

The problem with the current Magix format seems to be rooted in the past - not even as good as the original Pinnacle Systems forum which is of about the same vintage style.

One of the things that HAS promoted this forum over Creative Cow, DVInfo, and other pretenders like the VideoMaker magazine format over many years has been the style and no-nonsense delivery of this forum! That in itself counts big time as intellectual property for SCS.

Yes, this forum has been invaluable to me over the years. It is a big part of why I like this software so much.

I like this forum but it's no way the best. Composition is so awkward with the custom tags and lack of access to the thread and there is no quick search function. I prefer the forums at Oberon or Eileen's Lounge. Having said this the helpful supportive nature of this forum is truly great. It's the community that make or break a forum. I hope the community survives the transition to MagiX. Cheers.

I would very much enjoy having a blank white sheet of paper for a forum. This one comes close. The linking, embedding and text manipulation tools get a little tedious.
I'm holding up under the strain so far.

What's great about this forum is there are no advertising scripts. This is important to me as my speed is only 3 megs. Other forums will sometimes delay things for almost a minute while waiting for "useless" scripts over a slow connection. If you cancel the script the forum will not open.

That's my favorite part too. There's basically nothing on these forum pages except the forum. I also like the compactness of it: very little blank space between posts. No frills, no thrills, just the information and conversation we want.
FixitMad0 wrote on 6/10/2016, 3:59 PM
@Kelly +1 for the no Frills!

This forum is one of the better ones. Clean, precise and no extra "garbage".

I like this forum. The interface is much better than the one for Magix Pro. It is much easier to view.
John_Cline wrote on 6/11/2016, 6:31 PM
Design-wise, this is by far my favorite Internet forum software, it's missing a few convenience features, but for just text-based exchange of information, it is incredibly uncluttered and efficient.
Terje wrote on 6/29/2016, 7:38 AM

This is not a Magix forum. It's an enthusiast forum.
Terje wrote on 6/29/2016, 7:38 AM
>> Magix Vegas forum already working.

Nope, this is not Magix, only magix enthusiasts.
