i'd been happily making videos with sony vegas 8. But some problems with computer...freezing...whatever. I was working on a laptop and would have just upgraded to a pc but the constant badgering made me go Mac. EVERYONE said YOU MUST GO MAC. IT'S SOOOOO MUCH BETTTTEEER. It's so much more intuitive. It's so much easier. They told me just he basic program it comes with is MAGIC! So on the 4th of July, i get a fancy mac. Yes it's shiny and big and beautiful ... but the basic editing program ...turns out doesn't have any special effects. What up wit dat? Then I'm told the old version of the basic program is what i need. So i get that. And frankly, not that impressed. Freezes up constantly. I've grown to loathe the spinny beach ball. So I think... maybe i need to upgrade to Final Cut Express. I'm now reading reviews and sounds like it's just more of the same. I'm kicking myself fo buying into the hype and not just upgrading my pc and staying with sony. I'm hoping for some comforting words here. Especially if there's anyone who has worked in Sony Vegas 8 and is now clam happy with FCP express. Tell me to go with FC express and my love for sony vegas 8 will fade. please.
