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.
