I used sony vegas the small version for years. Now I have vegas pro. Much more stable, but regular vegas was fine, just save before you stretch video as it usually crashed doing that...
I got in on the beta for vegas pro, $288 for the full version... But, had to deal with bugs as they worked them out. Was worth it though as it works amazingly well now. I edited for years on a laptop, now I have a high end editing machine with SSD drives. So fast it is crazy.
But, I'm burnt out on editing. Lol.
I did make a video the other day, first in months.
