Thanks for the replies. I am still in doubt whether or not to upgrade to N8. I will make use of the current 40% discount that is offered right now, but if the new video engine is not reliable at this moment, I will continue to use N7 for now.
I don’t have any specific reasons to upgrade right now. The new features in N8 are nice but I don’t really need them for my daily work (Audio Postproduction). What I would really like to see in future updates is better MXF support and AAF import functionality. When I import an AAF which has files with multiple sample rates, the audiofiles are messed up, and there is now reliable way to correct this other than using ProTools to import correctly and re-export the AAF. I would also like to see track edit link, like in ProTools.
If N8 features these significant additions for postproduction, I would really like to use it. Meanwhile, I can still “testdrive” the current N8 version, while still being able to run N7. That’s why I started this topic in the first place.
