Wanted to get everyone's take on this...
Oh god. I have not used Sony products, but I have used Adobe, since CS3 infact. I don't like subcription models, Netflix is fine though.
This really stands out
"The software may be installed on two computers, but only one license can be accessed at a time."
I think that's a mistake on their part.
Depends on how they handle the lapse of subscription. If lapse leaves functional software, but one loses updates and tech support, ok, fine, I can deal with that.
If a lapse means the software stops working, then I pass. I don't feel like DRM-ing myself. I still occasionally have to go back into projects from years ago.
If they go subscription, Sony loses me again as a customer. I'm sure it's no skin off their nose though. I swore off Sony in every other category i.e. PlayStations that don't play older games and their so-called professional audio recording line is cheap carp so I won't miss what I'll never have.
Was that too harsh? I'm still reeling from Simon's news. ;^)
I have pretty much given up on a Sony Vegas Pro 14. I really do not want to go Adobe and Hitfilm just can't be my primary editor as much as I'd like it to.
Tried Resolve but my camera is not supported
ccliffy, do you transcode your media?
I fortunately have an Edius license, so I'm covered in most regards, since I use Scratch for color grading, and it has very good A/V syncing tools.
@cliffy, what camera is it, and what format does it record in?
I don't transcode but would if I end up using Resolve. I have a Panasonic ZS100 and a Sony RX100 IV (also panasonic V750 camcorder) ie consumer not pro grade models
Neither the resultant AVCHD or MP4 files can be opened in Resolve
I have a RX100 IV and Resolve opens the files just fine. I'm shooting XAVC S not AVCHD. I don't get sound when I load AVCHD from my Panasonic camcorder that has AC3 audio.
the no audio is a real bummer but lots of people have this problem it seems /Resolve
@Sarasota Sony Catalyst has gone subscription. Sony Vegas/Sound Forge and ACID have all been sold to Magix.
