I am very disapointed with Sony Vegas 8. It has more bugs than are in my basement. I'm a freelance videographer/editor. Time is of the essence when dealing with clients. Compression problems, Mpeg 2 encoding, I do not have several days to try and push a project out. Sorry Sony, I went back to Vegas 5 and DVD Architect 2. They have not failed me in five years. If I wanted Vegas 8 Problems I would purchase Adobe Premire Pro. Why after Vegas 7 would they release such an unstable software?
