Make sure you've got EU Euro selected as the currency/location at the top of the store. If you've got US or UK selected you won't be able to find the Netherlands option. smile

Some absolutely great deals! =) I can attest to the huge leap forward the PhotoKey 3 family is - a major increase in usability and a great upgrade deal too - will be doing some more shooting on greenscreens the next weekend and it will absolutely be a big part smile

The kits including Vegas are too of very good value - christmas starts early on FXhome for sure! wink

'Nuff said. I can remember last year when the Christmas deals were going on...
Why did you change the Cinema section to User Movies, though?

Glad you guys are liking the look of our Christmas offerings! We're including Sony Vegas in our FXhome video bundles because we think its a great match for the Lab products. Vegas has to be the most recommended editing software on the FXhome forums so it was the natural choice.

As you would hope, we have been given permission to include Vegas in our kits but you won't be seeing the bundles outside FXhome and our normal resellers (the excellent TubeTape for instance).

While they don't stock our products the http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/ website is a great place to learn more about their fantastic software for both audio and video editing.

Why is there no introductory discount or upgrade pricing for the plug-in version?

The plug-in doesn't have discounts because it's a completely new product, rather than a new version of an established one, plus it's coming in at a cheaper price anyway.
