Hello everyone,

The VEGAS team is excited to announce the release of a new update for VEGAS Pro 21, build 187. This is a major update which has focused on bug fixes and stability. We are also excited to release our first phase of encoding and decoding support for AV1 media. Please see the features and fixed listed below. Also note the two known issues associated with this update, as build 108 has a bug associated with the Auto-Update feature.

You may download this update via the auto-update mechanism within the application or directly via the links below:

Please post comments on this update in the general thread in the VEGAS forum or create a separate thread for specific issues you may encounter.

Warm regards,

Known issues: 

  • The Auto-update may stall if the update is triggered within VEGAS while the Welcome Screen is still open. If this occurs, you can cancel the installer and try the auto update again on a subsequent launch of VEGAS Pro and close the Welcome Screen before starting the update, or you may download the update via a direct link and install it manually.
