wow this is an AMAZINGLY GOOD LIST!

For GPU, hopefully Vulcan will have what is needed. OpenCL probably won't be moving forward. But...if cuda gets the job done better, then cool with that. That new GTX 1080 kicks major ass.

This is an excellent list so far. Please keep the suggestions and feedback coming.

Hi,

Don't forget true support for 4K monitors (ex. 3840 x 2160)!

Well - Vegas works but icons and controls scale to a minuscule size!!! This fix is very important since 4K monitors are nowadays common in workstations.

Would someone who can reply to the Creative Cow post - see thread : http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/forums/showmessage.asp?messageid=945411

- please reply to ERIC DETTMAN and tell him that they need to data mine the current SCS software forum to actually get the response he is looking for. HE needs to do this before the forum is disconnected (soon) from Sony.
He also needs to look at the gigantic "Problems with Vegas database " that SCS has maintained over the last 10 years. If they haven't already destroyed it or left it out of Magix purchase dealings.

cinefilm said, "-Get rid of the old VFW..."


I wonder if it would be possible to revise the interface of MAGIX Video Pro X so as to have the look, feel and usability of Vegas as a faster way to have Vegas without the VFW?

Would that not be better than a total re-write of Vegas itself? Is that possible?

I am sort-of thinking and wishing out loud.

When 5.1 audio channels are grouped, just 1 track to adjust volume of the 6 channels or Bus tracks keeps 5.1 audio.

Support for Red Dragon R3d files. (Vegas claims support, but hasn't actually worked for >18 months.)
Vegas is using an SDK from Red that is several versions out of date

-Per clip audio/video automation
-Keep the choice editing in external audio editor

-Surround mixer, more choices of front to back ganging of stereo pairs, angle, spread indicators

"A decent titler package with built in anti aliasing"
"Better handling of .mov files, no crashing"

I agree! A decent titler package so that we don't need to depend on plug-ins. Some decent built-in special effects would also be nice, again so that we don't have to depend on third party plug-ins (sorry VASST, I do like your products)..And please make Vegas recognize, and work as well with, mov files as well as it does with other files.

When nesting surround projects into a new project, the full surround channel assignments should be retained with the flexibility to collapse to stereo or keep it in surround if needed.

My 3 little wishes (Been using Vegas since V4) are

Increase the limit of the velocity envelope. Currently goes as high as 300%. Would like 5000%

Address the GPU issue. Whatever you decide, as long as it works with common graphic cards.

Turn on the Disable resample by default. (Lots of requests for this one and easy to do!)


Thank you very much for listening!!!

-Now proud to be a Vegas owner!

P.S. I almost cried when MAGIX_Eric D responded! Haven't seen anyone in a while in this forum (from sony). Thanks Eric just for listening!

"pause/resume rendering"

Since we got process/thread priority settings starting in WinXP, is this even an issue anymore? Under what circumstances do we need this to happen? The only one i can think of is a need to reboot the computer, but it seems like that should be exceedingly rare.
Chienworks wrote on 5/26/2016, 5:34 PM
All the new UI styles in the effects starting with Vegas 10, that were different from all the previous versions, please get rid of those and go back to the old style. They're confusing, unintuitive, and look cartoony.

Most importantly, keep it looking like a standard Microsoft Windows interface. It just plain works best. "Pretty" interfaces are all inferior as far as usability is concerned.

An option to enable the ripple edit button to blink when it is on or another little froggie up in the corner.

Don't "simplify" the GUI by hiding currently visible buttons. Microsoft loves going down that path in recent years.

Magix Eric D,
THANK YOU for your involvement with Vegas Pro and your response in these forums. Such a relief to know that Vegas Pro and its affiliated software will continue. My partners and I have used Vegas to edit 2 feature films, both of which received distribution, and I use it daily for event videography editing. I've used many other NLEs over the years but NOTHING compares to Vegas.
I echo many of the requests in this thread, but especially the ones concerning ProRes support, GPU acceleration and a darker interface - or even better the option to set it to where we want.
One other thing... and it seems silly... but this would be a perfect opportunity to rebrand Vegas. It seems no one will take it seriously in the US as long as it has a name associated with slot machines, strippers and booze. Anything but (Las) Vegas. Magix Edit Pro?

Greetings Eric.....Greetings.
Over at the Sony Vegas forum there is a long and detailed listing

Additional list:
- Full Screen mode switching (like F11 on Google Chrome) without any Window's title bar, or probably including 'minimized' Menu Bar. Even just 'little', it can add more space :)
Pinnacle Productions wrote on 5/26/2016, 11:54 PM
I'd love to have direct keyframe manipulation right in the Preview Window instead of (or in addition to) in the Event Pan/Crop window, sorta like Resolve. Vegas already does this to a limited degree with Titles & Text, let's expand this into Events, Parent tracks, 3D space editing, etc.

Also:
-Parent track FX (that affect all Child tracks)
-Video FX envelopes tied to plug-in/FX parameters (like Audio FX envelopes already do)
-better Ripple notices/warnings (how many times have we all screwed up timelines forgetting it was still engaged!)
-auto-rotoscope (ok, I know, I'm kinda dreaming on this one - but it would be awesome!)

+1 Optical Flow
+1 (Much) faster preview framerates
+1 corner pinning

My $.02. Lovin' the news! Thanks Magix / GR / JR / ED!

normally wouldnt care that much, but after recent purchase of sony fs5 and playing with its slo-mo i noticed in the first few seconds how limiting it is! so, now totally +1 to this function!

i'd say those 2 go without saying.

from me i'd like to add:
- favouriting videofx (maybe possibility of creating folders with favorite effects), so for different projects you can have different sets of effects that you most commonly use and dont have to scroll through all of them every time
- and better 'project media' window managing - ability to move folders around etc...
peakvideo wrote on 5/27/2016, 6:36 AM
Like others mentioned I would really want to see an increase the limit of the velocity envelope. Or being able to set a % increase on the whole clip that is a lot more than the present inadequate maximum of 400%. And able to dial in a percentage rather than the messy and inaccurate ctrl + drag the clip to increase/decrease velocity.
