If you are into making professional quality audio/video productions consider Sony Vegas Pro 8 as a mainstay for your personal multimedia productions studio. This is a mid-range to high-end video editing and DVD authoring solution that doesn’t require huge amounts of PC horses to run and is reasonably priced. To see a detailed review of Sony Vegas 7 DVD Production Suite check out our previous article.
Vegas Pro 8 includes Vegas Pro 8 video capturing/editing software, DVD Architect Pro (version 4.5) DVD authoring software, and Dolby Digital AC-3 Encoding software. Similar to Vegas 7 I was very impressed with the overall stability of the Vegas Pro 8 tool suite when working on highly complex video projects involving a dozen or so audio and video tracks. I also tested Sony Cinescore 1.0 soundtrack creation software with 2 newly released theme packs. Sony is offering a Vegas Pro 8 bundle that includes Cinescore and 2 theme packs through Oct 31.
