    Someone recently posted the text from the Sony press release concerning
    their upcoming release of Vegas 5.0, which I understand was inadvertently
    posted to their website (and then quickly removed).

    If you still have this press release, would you be so kind as to repost it
    here? I can't find it.

    Thanks,

    Randy

    Thanks, Bob, but no, not this press release. I thought there was a presser
    which actually revealed some of the features in the new version. Pretty
    sure I saw it. This was a press release that was mistakenly posted about a
    month (maybe two months) ago to the Sony website, and quickly removed when
    someone realized the mistake someone had made by jumping the gun.

    The presser you've posted here was just sent out in the last couple days,
    and was not "mistakenly" sent out; it merely discusses where you can learn
    more about the release at the NAB. The presser I'm referring to actually
    reveals some of the features of the new release.

    Anybody have the one I'm thinking of? It got posted to this or one of the
    other newsgroups recently.
