I have to be honest, I was trying to move to more professional software like Premiere Pro to improve my work output, but I simply love the workflow of the Vegas Pro and it hard to switch to anything else. I can create my videos fast and flexible.
However there are a few improvements / features I would love to see in future editions of the software that would make Vegas very competitive choice for many people, here are my suggestions:
-stability of the program - the most important thing is that Vegas should not crash
-fast performance - older versions (like 14) are significantly faster, it would be great if this is improved
(FOUNT, see posts below)-nesting and pre-rendering preview - while working on heavy 4k files I need to export file to be able to work with it. It would be great if there would be an easy built in option to pre-render files and work fast with them
(FOUNT, see posts below)-better quality render - my biggest issue is quality loss on render. I tried many settings but I still see a decrease in quality compare to other software
-advanced color grading - my other big issue is lack of professional color grading option, like Lumetri Color in premiere. I know you can more or less acjhieve simmilar result with plugins but it would be great to have one tool that can manage LUTs and all the basic corrections
(FOUNT, see posts below)-auto sync audio events - when I have autio from external mic I need to manualy sync it, other software has option to make this automatic
-import clips with variable frame rate - I am often working with high frame rate files and it would be great if there is option in import media that would automatically speed them up to real time, so for example I would write video is shot on 180fps and I want to import as 60 fps etc
-SLIP TOOL setting - its a great tool but I would like if I can change settings and the preview would show only the screen at the cursor. I often edit videos where action should match music, so I would stop cursor at the beat and then slip the right action to it
-audio file from video to specific location - it would be nice to have option to save .sfk files in one location, so they are not always messing around the folders
-support other fonts - not all fonts that are installed are available or work in basic text editor
(FOUNT, see posts below)-no disable resample - this is rather minor thing but still, it woudl be great to have "disable resample" as default option
-velocity faster than 1000% -
-audio velocity changing as video - would be great for slow motion clips.
Thank you for your consideration, if there is any feature that I mention already implemented I will be happy to hear about it!
