'Upgrade VMS2016 to VP21, projects , Subtitles, Upscale......

Jason-Froehlich wrote on 6/21/2024, 7:36 AM

So I got an ad for MAGIX Movie Studio Platinum 2025, and was excited about the features, untiI I realized I have VEGAS, not MAGIX. I currently have 2016 (Platinum), but would like to know if any of the later versions have features mine doesn't.  

Subtitles.  Are any versions able to output subtitle files, or have them part of the video file (not burned-in, though)?  I don't think 2016 has either option.  Also, how can I create them?  I do fan edits of movies with existing subtitles; can I import (and edit) those?  The ad (for MAGIX, so I don't know if it even applies here) says voice to text; would the text be able to generate from the audio in the project?

Would I be able to upscale video, like from SD to pseudo-HD (I know you can't get true HD from lower-quality sources)?

I probably already know the answer--but is it compatible with my old projects?

Finally, if not versions of Platinum have these features, but Pro does, can I simply upgrade to Pro, or do I have to buy it straight up?

Thanks!

MAGIX Movie Studio is a completely different product to the several years discontinued Vegas Movie Studio, its last version being 17 some years ago

As the current Movie Studio releases are not Vegas Products, you will need to post your questions on MAGIX's Movie Studio forum at https://www.magix.info/us/video-forum/movie-studio/ where you'll find users familiar with that product.

I believe that there is a trial version of MAGIX Movie Studio so that would enable you to try it out for yourself.

To clarify - this post is about upgrading from Vegas Movie Studio 2016 to Vegas Pro 21.

He wants to know about -

  • Subtitles in Vegas Pro,
  • 'voice to text' - I don't use it but presume that is the HUB - Text to Speech, Speech to Text 
  • Are his old projects compatible with the newer Vegas Pro.

@Jason-Froehlich

can I simply upgrade to Pro, or do I have to buy it straight up?

Because you have an older version of Vegas you will get the upgrade price. go through the Vegas Pro Upgrade option & you'll receive a note saying ' Congratulations ... ' , you an do that without going to the final stage of paying anything. 👍

@Gid, thank you for clarifying for the community. I guess me mentioning Magix did make it a bit confusing; I included it to compare features I was interested in, but you're right that it probably wasn't necessary.

Thanks again for your assistance!

@Jason-Froehlich No prob 👍 If you still can maybe change the title of this from 'Features on latest editions', to something like 'Upgrade VMS2016 to VP21, projects , Subtitles, Upscale, Speech to text' , you might get more replies that way 👍

@Gid

Sounds good. I can't figure out how to edit the title, so I'm going to close this one out and make a new post.

Thanks!

Gid wrote on 6/21/2024, 12:16 PM

@Jason-Froehlich Like you say sounds good, but remove the bit about Magix .... & MS otherwise it's going to get confusing like this post did,

Your version of Movie Studio is VMS (Vegas Movie Studio) & the new version is VP21 (Vegas Pro 21), only use those two acronyms 👍
