VideoGuys were quick to notice when Sony posted features and specs from the new version of their NLE, Vegas 7. Sony posted the info, then pulled it a day later, so this is something of a inadvertent leak. Vegas users will be happy to see several of the new features. Here are a few of note (visit the VideoGuys post for a full list of features or to pre-order the software):

Vegas 7
*XDCAM SD/HD support
*Improved HDV playback performance
*Enhanced hardware support for Blackmagic Design DeckLinkâ„¢ and AJA
*Cinescore software plug-in support
*Enhanced HDV, SD/HD-SDI support (wonder what that actually means?)
*Direct export to Sony PSP and render to iPod®-compatible formats (new export presets, I guess)

DVD Architect 4
*Scripting support (nice!)
*Random playlist playback
*Keyframeable transformations, crop, and effects
*Buttons on video
*4:3 and 16:9 preview settings (it did not have this feature previously?)

Sony Vegas 7 and DVD Architect 4 will be officially announced at IBC in a few weeks.
