Question Movie Studio 18 has nothing to do with Vegas Movie Studio

Render templates are shared in the Windows Users "Roaming" folder, so they can bee accessed by different versions of the same program and different users.
To keep things separate if needed, you could prefix custom render templates with something like VMSP16 or VMSP17, etc...
You should find them here:
C:\Users\*USERNAME*\AppData\Roaming\VEGAS\Render Templates

Custom Presets for OFX are stored here on your computer - once again, this is s shared folder that can be read by all versions of Vegas.
D:\Users\*USERNAME*\Documents\OFX Presets
:idea: Remember to turn everything off at least once a week, including your brain, then sit somewhere quiet and just chill out.

Peace :)

Thanks. In the "other forum" I was advised that the OFX Presets were shared, but I just advised them that you added the Roaming folder data to the llst.

Will Vegas Pro 18 Edit run MD Platinum-made VF files? Including the picture-in-picture effect? I don't know if I wish to start making new videos with it, but want to be sure I can work on my old vf files down the line

The old SCS KB article stated that (generally) "Vegas Movie Studio project files (*.vf) will open in Vegas Pro if the (*.vf) file was created in a numerical version that is less than or equal to the numerical version of Vegas Pro." This should still be valid for the current VEGAS product lines.The exception was that if the Pro version was released earlier than the same numerical version of VMS, the .vf project(s) did not (and do not) open in Pro.

You might want to check this by testing with the free trial of the current VEGAS Pro (v19).

I can't comment on Movie Studio 18 versions (which are totally different products from MAGIX).

MS 18 projects cannot be opened in VEGAS Pro.

Well - I wish I'd read this before

I only loaded up Vegas Studio 16 to do a quick edit on a 4k video I was testing out and the upgrade window popped up. As I was in a bit of a hurry, like many others, I just went for it.

So I wasted 30 minutes of my life downloading and installing it and immediately noticed it was a completely different product. I quite liked the fact it had the same storyboard layout option as Pinnacle Studio actually - that was always really useful when I used to use that, but the rest of it... no thanks.

I've sent them a cancellation request using their process which was actually detailed on the separate hevc codec order confirmation - - which by the way runs abysmally slowly on my PC unlike the nvidia one I was happily using in Vegas 16.

A bit vexed I didn't buy 17 when it was available. Will also have to consider Pro now I guess.

I get messages from people everyday the same as yours.
Most people who love using Vegas Movie Studio and don't want to re-learn a different system, are upgrading to Vegas Edit 19.
Vegas Edit 19 is the fully functioning version of Vegas Pro, just by itself.
Vegas Movie Studio owners can upgrade for just $119, which is a very good deal.
The upgrade also comes with Boris FX Continuum 2020 Title Studio ($199 value) until the end of this month.
Title Studio is a professional Titling app, that will give you the ability to create beautiful Hollywood level titles.

Use this link to access $119 upgrade deal!

Thanks, that looks perfect.

At least Magix were as good as their word on the returns policy. I had my money back in a couple of days.
