Thread: Vegas why o why

    Default Vegas why o why

    I see there is a big following of Vagas here, and Im sure this question has been posted before so Im sorry if Im covering old ground here.

    Could someone with some knowledge give a quick overview of why Vegas is a good option over and above Premier or Final cut ?

    I currently run a G5 with Final Cut Pro, but am currently looking to upgrade to the new pro mac and my current thoughts are to stick with Final Cut, however I am always looking at options and now is the best time, can anyone convince me to go for Vegas ???

    Download a trial and see for yourself? I would. . .Oh yeah I did!! That was back with Vegas Video 3.0 - I'm now on VegasPro8

    My opinion/advice is to download trial and think on. Pros and Cons for this sort of stuff is going to be very mixed.

    OK, why WOULD you want to switch NLEs + OS + Platform? Maybe it is time for you to consider running both?

    But there again, I have never had nor owned a MAC - so what do I know?

    Grazie

    Oh, another thought. Isn't it possible to run Vegas under "Bootcamp"? I have no personal knowledge or experience with this though.

    Grazie

    I have never used fcp or a mac so more piches of salt advised.

    One of the main arguments for fcp was that it did it's maths at a much higher colour depth than many editiors, however V 8 pro is now 32 bit so the choice gets even harder.

    Vegas is praised ofr it's logical way of working, similar to a music editor and for it's flexible efects bus structure. It is also tolerant of differnet types of media on the t line in one project, and very stable.
