Good and bad. 12/24/2013
This review is from: SONY Vegas Pro Premium
I've have used Vegas since before it was a Sony product. For what it is, it does a good job. It has it's share of idiosyncrasies like any involved software, but for the most part, there are workarounds. I also own Premiere and maybe a half-dozen other editors and use each as needed for what I am trying to accomplish. Sony has it "place in the sun" for much of it.
Crashes. All editors crash, everyone. Vegas is not different, except a number of the crashes are or could be prevented with a bit tighter coding. Things like rendering, pre-rendering and even playback cause crashes. Not to hard to find out why, should be not to hard to fix them. But, Sony is an awfully large company and Vegas is an awfully small part of it. So, it sets on the back burning most of the time. When it was introduce, I don't know, maybe 15 years ago, it was a rocket ship compared to everything else out there. Now, it waddles along, chirping here, chirping there, and you make do. If Sony wanted it, it could be the #1 semi-pro editor. But, somehow I don't think that is in Sony's plans. Too bad to.
Pretty much said everything I want to.
