Vegas Pro 11 is packed full of great features, and is quite simple to use. Some great live and archived training webinars - however the software continually crashes when making changes to a project.
In order to have chance of completing even a simple project, you have to save the project after each and every edit/change - because you know it will crash - and it will be sooner rather than later.
I specifically brought Sony Vegas Pro 11 for the filtering and masking effects and the automated motion tracking.
Look at the Sony forums - the latest build 520/521 is horrible. Unfortunately this was my first build so I don't have a previous stable build to roll back to.
Be warned - complete rubbish - especially for the amount of money is costs.
Customer support at Sony is rubbish - they expect you to buy a support contract to get help - I expect for the money I paid, it should work without a support contract.
You can except most applications are not bug free and will crash during some strange conditions or when resources are running low - running an Win7 64bit, i7, 16G of RAM, with no other applications running, then resources are not an issue. But yet it still can't even manage a simple project.
I was expecting to be able to give this application 5 star - and maybe if Sony ever fixes the issue, then I will rewrite this review - but until then beware, it's rubbish.
