Hi, I ask here because sony vegas forums are kinda dead. 

So today talking to someone who helped me to get rid of PUPs she advised me to keep my programs updated. So I bought Sony Movie Studio license (1 time payment) , it's version is 13.0 (build 190) - 64 bits. This program hasn't updated in 2 months, does anyone know if I receive free updates? is it safe to keep using this program without updating it?

Hi again puravida :)

I doubt that Sony Vegas is targeted by exploits to deliver payloads on a system, however, you should be able to update it if you paid for it (assuming there's updates for the current version you have, and not version 14 which I think will ask you for a new licence).

In the top menus you have in the program, under "Help", "About" or "?" you should have an "Update" option I think. I don't use the program so I can't tell exactly.

It doesnt say anything about update, I found this in their site 

http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/download/updates/moviestudio

 

that's what I have, but according to them that update was released in 2014, and I downloaded the software in 2015, so, am I good so far?

If there's no "new" update for the program, then you are good.

Sony don't tend to release many updates for Vegas aside from occasional bug fixes until they release major versions which aren't free upgrades although as mentioned above since it's simply video editing software it doesn't need regular updates for security.

Updates were common for audio/video editing software...when Win 7 debuted, Win XP came forth, and so on...but there is no reason to expect updates for any of those programs.  Win 10 may provoke one or two...but it's more feasible that the software developers will use that to sell a new version of their products, given the opportunity :).

 

I still use Cool Edit 2K and it's been 15 years without one :).  I haven't updated Pinnacle or Corel video-editors in years...and they exhibit no problems nor need for updates.
