    Oh really? Now, you may not WANT these pro features, but to say you can't see the difference . .

    Try my "Top 10" differences:

    1 - Unlimited Video and Audio tracks - Studio only 4

    2 - The FRESH DVD Platter To-Go Please? Includes the latest DVDA 4.5 - "DVD Architect 4.5 software is only available with the purchase of the Vegas Pro 8 collection."

    3 - 5.1 Audio Surround Sound mixing - NOT in Studio!!!

    4 -Multi Cam editing - Oh yes!

    5 - Colour Correction/Grading Toolset: Advanced color correction tools PLUS scopes! This places your video creations amongst the professional league - if you want to do that - well, I do!

    6 - Making your Audio work Creatively for YOU! Use the new Mixing Console to blend and the Cinescore support pulls the audio experience together - nicely!

    7 - It's a SNAP! The MASSIVELY useful Cross-Track vertical Snapping cursor bar!!

    8 - Paint in your Audio Envelopes! Video AND Audio Envelope "Painting" tool!!!

    9 - SCRIPTING!!!! - 'nuff said, just WOW!

    10 - You want TOTAL Control? Master, auxiliary, and effects bus tracks

    Oh yeah . . . nearly forgot . . . (new) ProType Titler . .

    Oh yeah . . . nearly forgot . . . (new) Scripting extensions . .

    Love it!!!

    Grazie

    .. oh here is the comparison chart too! http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/products/product.asp?PID=457&PageID=110

    As I have stated at least twice in the thread where you asked - you can make animated buttons (ie buttons that include video clips) in both versions. The method is exactly the same in Studio or Pro.
    As for Grazie's list, you don't get all the things he said except 5.1 which you DO get in a limited form with Platinum.
    But, of course you know this already as you've checked out the product comparison page
    Sony Creative Software - Vegas Pro 8 - Vegas Family Comparison

    To be honest Braden, I'd get going with Movie Studio Platinum 8. If you don't get on with it you haven't wasted too much. If you DO get on with it and feel the need to expand into areas only available in Pro, then upgrading to Pro won't cost you much more than if you bought Pro in the first place. Might even cost less.

    I started off with Movie Studio Platinum 6, then upgraded when "Pro" 7 came out, taking advantage of the discounted price promotion at launch. Cost me less than if I'd bought 7 outright.

    If I hadn't got on with it, my next port of call would have been Premiere Elements (with a view to going to Pro if I liked that).

    I think we are actually spoiled in this "high-end consumer" market in having watered down versions we can play with for not a massive outlay (a 30 day trial isn't really long enough to get a real feel for a product this complex unless you're a full time videographer)

    Tim, I was going with Braden's original comment - "ok i have vegas movie studio 6 and i want to upgrade to vegas pro 8." - He didn't mention Plat then? Only Movie Studio 6? He mentioned Plat AFTER I took time to list the movie studio 6 list - I which case, I WAS correct!

    Love it!!

    Grazie, that was understood. Which is why I said you DO get 5.1 in Platinum. My comment was never intended as a correction, only an amplification. Maybe I should have emphasised the Platinum.

    LOL!! Yeah . .no harm done.

    Speaking of "goal-posts" - I do have a bit of a hangover. . !

    The last 10 minutes of the rugger yesterday took 10 years off my life . .. Good to see the "Catt" getting "Man of the Match" though. Well deserved.

    Apologies for making a non-Vegas reply . . But, maybe . . . .
