Sony Creative Software is always releasing new build versions of all their software, so it is important to make sure your version is up to date.

Vegas Pro 11 and Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 11 in particular are continually being updated to fix bugs and performance issues and also to add new features. So if you actually own a registered copy of Vegas, DVD Architect Studio, Sound Forge Audio Studio, etc.....then you are entitled to download for free any new build versions of the program that may be released during the lifetime of the particular version you own.

Automatic Updates

There is an automatic update feature within all versions of Sony Creative Software, which checks for new build versions everytime you boot up a program. If a new free build has been released a pop up window will give you a direct link to the download area at SCS.

Manually Updating

Sometimes the automatic update procedure will fail on a computer. This is normally caused by an over zealous virus protector program or web browser which blocks the pop up window from activating. This is why it is a good idea from time to time to manually check for updates. Please watch my video tutorial and I will show you exactly what to do.

Updating Third Party Plug-ins

Most people using Vegas Pro or Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 11 will have some third party plug-ins installed like NewBlueFx or BorixFx. All these pieces of software should also be checked for updates as well.

Just like with Sony Vegas there should be some automatic tools which check this for you, however New Blue especially can experience some big problems especially with older versions of their software. As an example I discovered the the NewBlue "Check for Updates" link in their software was producing a false reading. Basically saying that no updates are available when there actually was. I show how to get around this problem in the video tutorial as well.

So remember to check for updates !
