Version history / Release notes / Changelog


VEGAS Pro 16 comes loaded with powerful new video editing features to help you work faster, smarter, and more creatively. The new version delivers on every level, with more flexibility, more power, and more professional features.
Sophisticated and flexible masking technology coupled with rock-solid motion tracking give you the ability to isolate moving objects in your scene. You can easily track their motion and apply color grading and other creative effects that follow them wherever they go. Integrated motion tracking developed by the VEGAS team specifically for VEGAS Pro provides lock-tight tracking results.
Turn shaky footage into smooth, pro-quality video in no time. The video stabilization engine has been completely rebuilt from the ground up to be far more powerful and easy to use. Get smooth results every time even on source material that was unusable before.

Dynamic storyboard and timeline interaction
Dynamic storyboard and timeline interaction
The dynamic storyboard workflow might just change the way you edit from now on. Quickly assemble rough cuts and alternate versions in an uncomplicated storyboard environment. Changes made to the main storyboard are reflected instantaneously in the timeline and vice versa. Additional storyboards can also be created and used for experimental edits, alternate sequencing, or as a new tool for organizing separate sections of your project.

Extensive file backup options
Extensive file backup options
VEGAS Pro 16 features a comprehensive list of file backup options. You can back up your work after a set time (determined in minutes and hours) and keep any number of daily backups. You can automatically save the current project and a backup file after every edit. All backups can be saved to the same folder as the project file, a temporary location, or any user-specified location, and opened anytime you want to return to them.

Drag media bin to timeline
Drag media bin to timeline
Save time! Files don't need to be added one by one anymore. You can now drag media bins (which also include the new storyboard bins) directly to the project timeline to add all of the bin's media files simultaneously.

Resizable media thumbnails
Resizable media thumbnails
Project media thumbnails can now be enlarged so you can see more detail and achieve greater hover scrub accuracy. You now see a more accurate location of specific video frames and can edit with much finer hover scrubbing and more exact in/out marking.

Project media hover scrub
Project media hover scrub
Hover scrubbing project media thumbnails gives you a quick way to identify the important points in your video files before you add them to your timeline. Simply move the mouse over a thumbnail in the Project Media window and scrub through the video to find a specific frame.

Project media in/out points
Project media in/out points
With the ability to place the hover scrub cursor at an exact frame within the Project Media thumbnail, you can now create an In or Out point at that location. When the file is added to the project, the resulting event will then automatically be trimmed down to these defined In/Out points.

Preview multiple selected project media files
Preview multiple selected project media files
It's now possible to select more than one media file in the Project Media window and preview each file, one after the other, in one continuous operation. This is great when you are working with storyboards because you will quickly be able to preview the entire storyboard in sequence.

Close gaps
Close gaps
Now you can easily and automatically close the gaps between any selected events on a track within a project. This helps you quickly clean up your projects and ensures you have no black frames between edits.

Select events from cursor
Select events from cursor
You can now select events from the current cursor position, including all events on selected tracks or within the entire project from the cursor to the end. It's a great way to quickly create space within a project to insert other events.

High DPI scaling
As more and more elements of VEGAS Pro become compatible with High DPI monitors, you can change to High DPI mode to take advantage of an even crisper, clearer user interface on your High DPI monitor.

Automatic subtitle creation from timeline regions or a file
Automatic subtitle creation from timeline regions or a file
Speech from a video that has been transcribed and entered as named regions in your project, a text file, or a spreadsheet can be used to instantly create a subtitle track. Subtitle positions can be automatically synced to project audio events and can be edited for fine tuning.

Add missing stream
Add missing stream
Sometimes your project contains either the video or audio portion of a video clip on the timeline and you decide that you want the other portion too. This feature instantly finds the missing portion, creates an event for it and syncronizes it to the existing portion.

With full support for High Dynamic Range (HDR) color now included with VEGAS Pro 16, you can work with footage from the latest cameras, preview your work on an HDR reference monitor and deliver stunning-quality HDR work.

360° editing
VEGAS Pro 16 includes 360º templates for some of the most popular cameras. Set your project up as a 360 project, stitch dual fisheye files seamlessly, preview your file with complete 360 control, apply 360 filters, and deliver as complete 360 videos. Give your viewers a completely immersive experience with 360 video.

Tiny Planet OFX plug-in
Tiny Planet OFX plug-in
In the popular Tiny Planet effect, a subject appears to be standing on a super-small planet. The VEGAS Pro Tiny Planet OFX plug-in is the most elegant solution to create this effect instantly and includes effect animation and integration with regular or 360º videos.

Bézier Masking
Bézier Masking
With the powerful, flexible Bézier masking plug-in, you can create up to five different masks, choosing from oval, rectangle or custom shapes. These can then either cut a section of the video out to reveal different video beneath, or have an effect applied within them – such as color grading or blur – making it possible to blur someone's face while leaving the rest of the video in focus. Tied in with the new motion tracker the mask can move along with an object during the course of the video.

Professional MAGIX eFX audio
Professional MAGIX eFX audio
VEGAS Pro 16 includes the high-quality Essential eFX audio plug-in suite. A flexible set of tools for shaping and mastering audio, it includes plug-ins for improving the quality of your soundtrack, reducing noise, or adding special effects like delay, reverb, chorus, and much more.

Review by Paulus on Oct 25, 2018 Version: vegas 16 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 1/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value for money: 1/10 Overall: 1/10

Version 13 adds some features vs. v.12, but it's much slower encoding on this rig [almost 2x in some cases] -- to me that's a deal breaker since regardless what you do editing, you still have to get your work out of Vegas as a video file. Prem Pro might be an alternative but I'm not fond of their subscription pricing model, & I'm set up for Sony with AMD/ATI graphics, while Adobe favors Nvidia. Sony may fix this in a later build -- 12 was buggy for quite a while... seemed like they moved it from beta too soon, or maybe have too small a pool of beta testers. May be the same with 13? At any rate, skipped 13 for now -- I may look at it later in its development or may just wait & see what 14's like. I've skipped Vegas version upgrades in the past for this sort of thing, and they've always come around eventually.

Review by mikiem on Jun 3, 2014 Version: 13 Build 310 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value for money: 6/10 Overall: 8/10

Sony Vegas USED to be a strong editor, but the more recent versions, it started to lose ground where it used to stand out - crashing; Sony Vegas crashes like crazy, at least as far as I have been noticing in the space of say, two years. Its interface and ease of use are still nice, attractive but it feels like, the more they change it, adding new features etc etc, the less stable it becomes. I am now gradually switching to Davinci Resolve lite and am toying with the idea of getting Premiere Pro. Today alone I wasted plenty time because Vegas crashed (on minor things, such as, applying non real time effects to WAV files), while I am to meet a deadline in finishing a wedding project. I have been using Vegas since 2004 (since the Sonic Foundry era) but I am saying good bye to it. Many still prefer it due to its ease of use, but if you want to do serious work, Vegas is not the way anymore.

Review by videodan on Jun 3, 2014 Version: 8.1 OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 7/10 Value for money: 7/10 Overall: 8/10

This version, Vegas Pro 12 build 710, has a bug which prevents it from importing image sequences, build 714 was released today (9/10/2013) which addresses this issue.

Review by VidProQuo on Sep 11, 2013 Version: 12 build 710 OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 9/10 Overall: 9/10

Running Vegas since what became the Pro version was in beta, I think it's a pretty cool, pretty complete & capable NLE, with great multi-track audio features to boot. Most of the good stuff you can read in their ad copy &/or adverts... here's a little bit on what they don't tell you.

The big news is that this pro-level, cheaper [& 32 bit compatible] alternative to Adobe's Premiere Pro adds GPU acceleration with version 11. On the Plus side, that hardware assist works with ATI hardware [not just Nvidia like Prem. Pro] -- heading up the Minus column, with ATI graphics at least, that hardware assist may or may not work all that well, regardless whether you've got it turned on or off... with Build 594 [595 for the 64 bit version] Sony Creative Software seems to have gotten a lot [most?] of the bugs worked out, but as the release notes point out, they had to temporarily disable some of the ATI GPU assist features to do that. Depending on the video format I've had display issues on both the timeline & in the 2 video windows, along with some problems encoding -- while nowhere near as bad as the 1st build, with an ATI 6870 [the card Sony lists as their ATI reference] I still get occasional green frames displayed, & obviously if you can't see the video you can't edit it. Turning GPU assist on or off may help, or it may make the problem worse -- it's not something where turning off the feature puts things back to normal.

That said, HD video playback is much improved, & a lot of the FX [built-in &/or add-on] can use GPU acceleration to speed things up. The Mainconcept mpg2 encoder works much better than in version 10 [which I skipped because of that encoder], but not quite as well as in Vegas v. 9. The Sony AVC encoder is much improved, but still has weaknesses, I *think* because Sony needs it to work with the bundled DVDA authoring app. Encoding to Blu-Ray AVC is much faster -- it's fastest in the 64 bit version of Vegas, & slightly faster in win8 on top of that -- producing High level 4.0 video when you set the encoder to just under 22 Mbps or lower, where the encoded video will have a max bit rate of 22 Mbps. As you increase the bit rate setting between 22 & 25 Mbps, the level jumps 1st to 4.1, then 4.2, while the max pops up to 26 Mbps -- this also means DVDA will insist on re-encoding. With build 594/595 Sony has changed their Sony AVC encoder setup window -- you now have to select AVCHD if you want to set a 22+ Mbps bit rate.

DVD Architect [DVDA] is mostly unchanged from the version that shipped with Vegas 9, & in fact the only major change to DVDA since v. 4 [2/16/2007] has been the addition of Blu-Ray. As far as Blu-Ray goes DVDA works, but it won't do Java or pop-ups, it will only output to BD disc or ISO, will not accept DTS, & will not pass every Blu-Ray compliant video file without re-encoding -- as above it seems to be limited re: just what AVC video it will pass through without re-encoding. DVDA and Vegas are also a bit different when it comes to importing video, e.g. H264/AVC should be muxed to .m2ts [I use tsMuxeR] & mpg2 to .mpg [I use TMPGEnc mpeg tools] without the audio stream -- importing AVC or .m2v [mpeg2] into DVDA is possible, but it can take quite a while for DVDA to index the file, & then I've had problems later on in the project.
