  2. Thanks. An introductory "pre-release" price "special" is offered, which
    includes the choice of one of three additional items plus $50 off, but then
    the price of the update is still a hefty $250, not very tempting for me,
    given that the upgrades/new-features included are mostly not all that
    useful (for me). I also looked everywhere in the listed features, specs,
    etc. and I could find no reference about whether it would (or continue to
    not) fully support 24 Mbps AVCHD at export, with or without "Smart
    Rendering". Then there is that "small" matter of the Vegas early-release
    set of bugs that seem to take a long time to (mostly) get fixed. I do like
    Vegas, but I will be staying with Pro 8c for now...;-)

    David, the $50 discount is applied after you start the order process so
    the final price is $200 or less.
    BTW, this offer is good until June 30 so you'll have time to download
    the trial and play with it.
    Other than the review I linked to and what's been discussed on the
    various Vegas forums, we'll have to wait until it ships before we know
    what's really "under the hood".

  4. This was not clear from discussions on the forums, and I got the
    impression from posters that $250 included the discount - but this
    could easily be incorrect at this early date. Have you tried ordering
    Good point, and I may do this (although knowing whether or not it will
    handle 24 Mbps AVCHD well is just out of curiousity for me at this point).
    True - but the multiple Sony descriptions were quite thorough on most
    points, while leaving others mysteriously not well defined...;-( Even so,
    even if $200, the extras offered and the stated upgraded features are not
    very interesting to me at this time for the price (but it may be for others,
    of course...;-).

    Obviously it's "each to their own".
    After reading Edward Troxel's write-up, I was sold on it as I saw
    several new features that interested me.

    You can't get a key for software that you don't have installed on your
    The best thing to do is to call Sony's customer service, explain the
    situation and see what they can do for you.
    In the past, users who bought the previous version less than a month
    before the new one came out got the upgrade either for free or for a
    very good price.
    Customer Service contact info is at
    BTW, as a long-time user, I'm glad to hear that you like Vegas :)

    apparently you can buy 8 now and get an automatic upgrade to 9 on the
    11th may when it comes out.....
