This may be old news for some, but Gary James has announced that he will not be porting his "Timeline Tools" Utility to MAGIX Vegas:
"Because of the large amount of work that would be required in maintaining, developing, and testing two versions of Timeline Tools (one for Sony Vegas Pro v13 and earlier, and one for Magix Vegas Pro v14 and later) I've decided that for a free utility program, I simply can't invest the time required to properly support both. To that end Timeline Tools will NOT be available for Magix Vegas Pro."
I was also aware of Gary's decision, but that was not the reason I decided not to purchase anything from Magix. I have Timeline Tools, and have used it as exploring it's capabilities. I do not depend on it, but understand why many do and recognize the effort Gary made to develope it and the polish it adds to Vegas pro. If I were Gary, I would have made the same decision. I think Timelne Tools still has life in it, because there are many who have made a similar decision to stay with previous versions of Vegas Pro and avoid the v14 for now. My hat is off to Gary and wish him well.
