In view of the announcement by Magix of the impending retirement of Vegas Movie Studio,; will Magix continue to support the software or are we going to be left out in the open?  I refer to the debacle of the Windows 10 update  that crippled Movie Studio 17.

The Windows 10 update problem, was a rare event that hopefully will never happen again.

There would have to be some type of legal requirement for Magix to continue support for at least 12 months, for anyone that bought a program right now.
However, I don't think you will ever see anymore free build updates released for Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 17 - once a product is retired, that's it.
Version 17 was already 18 months old.

One thing that I have always noticed over the last 10 years, is that Vegas Creative Software tries as best as it can, to support Vegas Pro. Because Vegas Pro is being used by people to make money in a professional environment, it has always been well supported and updated regularly, even when it was getting a bit long in the tooth. Both Vegas Pro 17 and Vegas Pro 18 received updates to fix the Windows 10 bug - not just VP18.

You would have to ask Magix for any further clarifications, but I doubt you'd get a proper answer out of them right now.
Their in a real mess right now and in full panic mode, I would guess.
On a Linux based computer, it would be called Kernel Panic!!!
:idea: Remember to turn everything off at least once a week, including your brain, then sit somewhere quiet and just chill out.

Thanks Derek.  Perhaps Magix should sell the software back to Sony!!!!!

I am a non professional so see no purpose in going to Vegas Pro.  In any event  it probably wouldn't be compatible with DVD Architect.
