    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. :D

    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?

  • edited May 2016

    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.
