From this morning:

Hi Mark,
VEGAS Pro is entering into a brand new era!

Since the acquisition of VEGAS Pro and other tools from Sony Creative Software, our entire development team in Madison, Wisconsin is working tirelessly to take video editing with VEGAS Pro to the next level.

This means that at the end of September 2016, you can look forward to the most advanced version of VEGAS Pro yet!

Here's a sneak peek of some of the highlights and new features in the upcoming version:

» HEVC/H.265 support
» 4K Smart Upscaling
» Native ProRes support
» and much more!

Stay tuned for more updates and get ready for the all new VEGAS Pro 14.


Klaus Schmidt
CEO MAGIX Software GmbH

Thanks for sharing Mark.

Would this mean that QT is no longer needed for Vegas Pro?

Wishing the team well for their work!.

Back in mid April, when we were finding product listings for Vegas 14 on various websites (including Dell) just before Vegas went into hiding, this was included in the description (found on Google's cached pages of the Dell product listing):

[i]Vegas Pro 14 Edit delivers pure Vegas Pro core technology in a cost-effective package. New features include smart restoration and upscale features, interoperability with HitFilm 4 Pro, new plug-ins by Sony, and NewBlueFX, new hardware support for High DPI monitors, Blackmagic, AJA SDI devices and RED cameras, and application wide performance improvements. Vegas Pro 14 Edit offers more formats, supports more workflows, and provides the tools for more creative control than ever before.[/I]

Of course there's no assurance that the Vegas 14 that MAGIX releases will have those features, but it seems reasonable to speculate that they were already implemented in the "almost released" Vegas 14, and will still be there when the product is released in September. The sale of the product line to MAGIX could affect 3rd party deals, like the NewBlueFX plug-ins mentioned above. We'll have to wait and see.

Fantastic news! This is straight from the MAGIX CEO and not a bunch of rumors and speculation.

Yes...this is the ticket. Several broadcasters that I deal with would like for me to deliver in a native ProRes format.

This is the greatest news in NLE.

I will probably never use all of that capability but I will get Vegas 14 anyway just for the hell of it to see if it has that rock hard feeling of stability even if you hit the wrong button.

Very excited about the ProRes support!!

Mark, can I ask where you signed up for that e-mail newsletter?
winrockpost wrote on 6/21/2016, 8:30 PM
I have no trouble now with ProRes files,, obviously I am missing something in all the excitement, support does not automatically mean render to....or does it.
balazer wrote on 6/21/2016, 8:42 PM
The trouble with ProRes is that Quicktime for Windows is deprecated and has known security vulnerabilities. It's best to not even have it installed on your machine.

Thanks for the good news...

I have subscribed Magix's Newsletter but didn't received this message...?

I received the announcement. Even though I'm not diving professionally for the foreseeable future -- and thus no real "need" for Vegas 14 -- I am totally there!

weird... where's the mail gone...

Awesome news. Looking forward to editing the next feature film (again) in vegas pro. I love this NLE. Hopefully all other broadcast and film oriented features in the suggestions thread will be implemented. Go Magix!
DumplingandDots wrote on 6/22/2016, 6:32 AM
I'm truly anticipating the new release! I even purchased a dedicated locations audio recorder, external recorder, a boom with mic, lavs and accessories because I'm diving fingertips firsts into film making. The only thing missing are good inspirational stories :-/ Lol.

Anyway great job MAGIX! I hope all the features that are user priorities make it into 14 and also hoping the environment is stable!

I'm currently still on V12, and retiring end of this year from Pro editing....but I'm still going to buy V14 (as long as it has an 'upgrade' price) just to see how the Magix 1st offering fares. Feel like a kid again, LOL :-)

I also have no problem with ProRes, and agree... ProRes support does NOT MEAN Render To.

If you have clients that want ProRes you have to either talk them into Avid DNxHD (and send them codecs, total pain), or render off a Mac.

Here's hoping, but seems like a wish. If Premiere on Windows can't render to ProRes, why would Vegas be able to>?

" » Native ProRes support " and other statements in this general announcement do not necessarily lead us down a path to true value features for any upcoming product.

ProRes is a license issue for the Windows PC in the United States, not just merely technical one.

Fortunately there are technical solutions to getting ProRes to work on a PC and it has been done for quite sometime. For VegasPro and Premiere among others... so the value of this announcement begs the question what if anything does it purport to bring to the table?

I was just about to upgrade from 10 to 13... maybe I should wait? Advice appreciated. Thanks.

Native Prores support could eliminate the Vegas ~50 file import issue with Prores/Quicktime.

videoITguy wrote on 6/22/2016, 11:44 PM
The '-50 file import" issue with codecs inside .mov containers has to do with the memory handling going down inside the Vegas app as the code of Windows Quicktime is a 32bit handling plug-in. Not adaptive to the extensive capacity of 64bit on the Mac platform. Not strictly speaking, a codec issue.
