VEGAS PRO 16:

ACCELERATE YOUR CREATIVITY
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.


MOTION TRACKING
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.


VIDEO STABILIZATION
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.

STREAMLINE YOUR WORKFLOW
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.

HDR SUPPORT
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° MEDIA EDITING
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.

TOOLS TO TAKE YOU FURTHER
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.

Notable Fixes/Changes in Version 6.0b
General

* A bug has been fixed that could cause a crash after undoing a marker move if the marker had a long label.
* A bug has been fixed that caused regions to appear as markers or at the wrong time when pasted into the Edit Details window.
* The installation of some Adobe applications may result in users of some Sony Media Software applications to display the following message on app startup: "This application has failed to start because PRM.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem." If you see this message when launching any Sony Media Software application, you can simply click OK and proceed. Vegas 6.0b includes a workaround to prevent this message at startup.
* A bug has been fixed that caused the the Quantize to Frames setting to be bypassed when dragging and holding the Shift key.
* A bug has been fixed that caused uninstallation of Vegas 6.0 to remove track effect and Wave Hammer plug-ins from existing Vegas 5.0 installations.
* A bug has been fixed that could cause Vegas to crash if you deleted tracks while audio peak files for nested projects were being created.
* The following settings have been moved from Preferences > General to the View menu, and keyboard shortcuts have been added for easy access:
o Show/Hide Event Media Markers: Ctrl+Shift+K
o Show/Hide Active Take Information: Ctrl+Shift+I
o Show/Hide Waveforms and Frames: Ctrl+Shift+W

* A bug has been fixed in the Cookie Cutter and Iris transitions that prevented guides from being displayed on the sliders.
* A bug has been fixed that caused video event opacity to incorrectly affect opacity during a transition.
* A bug has been fixed that prevented dynamic RAM previewing from working if the Sync Cursor button was selected in the Event Pan/Crop dialog.
* Memory performance has been improved when using a large number of clips on the timeline that are encoded with the CineForm HD codec.

Audio

* The Resample quality control on the Audio tab of the Project Properties has been renamed Resample and stretch quality because the setting also determines the quality of processing when time stretching audio.
* A bug has been fixed that caused the Preserve pitch when stretching audio events preferences to be ignored when deselected.
* A bug has been fixed that could cause unexpectedly loud output or popping from the LFE channel in a 5.1 surround project when Good or Best was selected from the Low-pass filter quality drop-down list on the Audio tab of the Project Properties dialog.
* A bug has been fixed that could prevent the Low-pass filter quality setting from being saved and restored.
* A bug has been fixed that could cause playback glitches when changing a track between Surround Pan and LFE mode.
* A bug has been fixed that could cause file names to be truncated after recording if periods were added to the file name.
* A bug has been fixed that prevented the Simple Delay plug-in from producing tails at the end of the audio stream.
* A bug has been fixed that could cause glitches at the ends of the loop region during looped playback of 5.1 surround projects.
* A bug has been fixed that could cause problems when rendering projects that contain UAD plug-ins.
* Various fixes have been made to the Audio Plug-In window.
* The record time remaining display now shows the time remaining for all armed tracks.

Capture / Print to Tape

* A pre-capture dialog has been added to allow you to choose whether you want to capture DV using an external video capture application or SDI/HDV clips using the internal Vegas video capture application. If you always capture from the same device, you can choose to always use the selected method (you can change the method later on the Video tab of the Preferences dialog).
* ADS Pyro A/V Link support has been improved.
* A bug has been fixed that could cause a crash while capturing DV clips when the Media Manager was turned off.
* A fix has been made to prevent erroneous Copy Inhibit errors on DV cameras.
* Print-to-DV-tape operations from the timeline are now more reliable when prerendering is required.
* The Print Video to HDV Tape dialog now displays elapsed time and estimated time remaining.
* A/V sync has been improved when capturing from HDV tapes with discontinuities.
* Audio preview performance during HDV capture has been improved for slower systems.
* A bug has been fixed in the new video capture application that prevented the Length box from being updated when the Timecode in or Timecode out boxes were edited when capturing from a DeckLink device.
* Buttons have been added to the Length, Timecode in, and Timecode out boxes in the new video capture application so you can specify which value will be calculated automatically while capturing from a DeckLink device.
* Timecode accuracy has been improved when capturing from and printing video to DeckLink devices with support for Decklink.dll v4.8 and v4.9.
* A bug has been fixed in the Contour ShuttlePro .pref file for external video capture.

Media Manager

* A bug has been fixed that could prevent MSDE from shutting down while Sony applications that support the Media Manager are running.
* The Media Manager now includes .veg files when scanning for media.
* A bug has been fixed that prevented clips from being added to the Media Manager when multiple clips were batch captured.
* A bug has been fixed that prevented files from previewing when the Save media-usage relationships in active media library check box was selected.

Scripting

* Scripting changes have been posted to the Vegas scripting forum.


Notable Fixes/Changes in Version 6.0a

* You can now print to HDV tape by choosing Print Video to HDV Tape from the Tools menu. This new wizard supports all currently shipping HDV cameras and deck types.
* Double-clicking a .veg file now opens the Vegas project instead of nesting the .veg within the current project. If you want to nest a .veg, you can drag it from the Explorer window or choose File > Import > Media and browse to the .veg you want to nest.
* A bug has been fixed that prevented events that are contained completely within other events from being exported when exporting your project as an AAF file.
* Scripts that have been compiled as .DLL files can now be added to the Scripting menu.
* If you create a shortcut to a script in the Script Menu folder, you can use the shortcut to call the script and pass an argument to the script. By creating multiple shortcuts with different arguments, you can use the same script for several functions, and each shortcut will appear in the Scripting menu as a separate item.
* The Resample quality setting on the Audio tab of the Project Properties dialog determines the quality of processing when time-stretching audio events.
* When you nest Vegas projects, a warning is now displayed if media files or plug-ins from the nested project are not available on your computer.
* A new setting has been added to the General tab of the Preferences dialog. Select the AAF Export - Use frame unit for audio check box if you want to use frame units for audio tracks when you export your project as an AAF file. When the check box is cleared, audio will be exported as sample units. Selecting the check box will improve compatibility with other applications for project interchange: some applications will not import your project correctly when frame units are used for video and sample units are used for audio. Clear the check box only if your project contains audio only or if you know the application that will import your AAF file supports frame units for video and sample units for audio.
* If you installed a boxed version of the initial Vegas 6.0 release, the DV video capture tool would time out and become unusable. This has been fixed in version 6.0a.
* Numerous stability and performance enhancements have been implemented for DeckLink capture, batch capture, timecode-based capture, and print to tape.

What's New in Version 6.0

Video

* A/V synchronization detection and repair
* Full-screen preview to a secondary Windows display (including DVI monitors)
* Ability to save keyframe presets in the Track Motion and 3D Track Motion dialogs

Audio

* Option to ignore fact chunk when opening compressed WAV files
* VST effect support
* Playhead timeline scrubbing
* Broadcast Wave Format (BWF) import

Workflow

* Support for nested Vegas projects
* Ability to save a project path in a rendered file and edit a rendered file's source project
* Media Manager window
* AAF import and export
* Multithreaded rendering
* Ability to display fade lengths between selected and nonselected events
* Regions and markers that occur at the end of rendered file are now adjusted so they occur on the last audio sample of the rendered file. If you're rendering the loop region only, any region that extends beyond the loop region is adjust so the region end occurs on the last audio sample. This adjustment prevents warning messages when the rendered files are opened in Sound Forge software.

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.
