The release date works well with my schedule for the next couple of months. I'm looking forward to a rigorous trial in September.

Well John, lets hope the Judge goes easy on you😂

I hope the other technologies include CUDA - but frankly, this should have been part of Vegas 14 already. During the year of its existence you have lost me to Resolve because I couldn't take any advantage of my two 1080 GTX GPUs :(

release of VEGAS Pro 15 on August 28.

What can you expect from VEGAS Pro 15?

 

I hope you've fixed the old ctrl-drag envelope point issues :

I do not have a problem. Try to replace the mouse.

It's VP15 ... if worse comes to worst, parole will surely be granted for humanitarian reasons.

Seriously though, I am looking forward to 15, the GUI flexibility sounds really good. Hoping that AC3 Pro will make a welcome re-appearance.

VP15 better supports the most popular 10 bit GH5 camera. This has been asked for a long time now for an update. I will not waste my money for VP15 if 10 GH5 is not on the table.

Waiting for upgrade pricing to go from VP14 Suite to VP15. Thank you to the Vegas programmers for your continued commitment to this excellent tool we call Vegas.

Anything that speeds up renders for modern hardware is greatly welcomed. I want to thank Magix for saving the thousands of muscle memory hours I had in Vegas PRO / MS. Looking forward to the new update. I would like the ability to import/export from the audio track to Samplitude. While I was waiting for the AcidPro to be updated I bought Samplitude Music Studio and think that Samplitude with the ability to work with Acid project files and VegasPRo would be a killer combo.

Taking full advantage of GPU's including CUDA would be appreciated, the preview windows has gotten way better but I'm sure once GPU support is optimized there would be less dropped frames in preview to keep up with playback. Premiere actually takes full advantage of all GPU's.

This is probably the most important thing to address. Meanwhile, I'm loving following this thread. Very exciting, the anticipation of an updated VP. And call me silly, but the thing I'm most excited about is new UI. I've wanted a dark grey / black UI for YEARS. And one other thing - I still jump back and forth between FCPX and VP and one thing I LOVE about Vegas is that it doesn't rely on constant transcoding to do it's job. I have a FCPX project right now with about 150GB of XAVCS of original files that has a Library of transcoded files that's over 800GB in size. FCPX can be a nightmare of file and disk management.

If you wona speed up to x1000, backup each minute and more and more scrpits - Vegasaur, but in v15 from Magix I wait general options, like lumetri, more audio_bitrate in HEVC, and of course NO CRASH

Thanks Magis and we trust you 💯

Will it be a free upgrade for current Vegas 14 customers? - I certainly hope not! I want Magix to succeed as a result of their "rescue" of Vegas, and this won't happen if they don't get rewarded for the time they have put into developing the product.

Oh I've had this issue with several mice, several computers, several Vegas (and Windows) versions - even on touchpads :|

I'll try to make a repro guide :)

Does this mean you fixed the hardware acceleration crashing problem that has plagued Vegas for years and affects a large number of users? If so, sign me up! If not, then why are you touting this as a feature?

I am thankful MAGIX is developing Vegas Pro, and hopeful that VP15 will be great.
Intel QSV is not available on my 6-core i7-6850, so I do hope discrete GPUs get support in VP15.

Yes, same thing with my HP Z640 workstation, which runs Xeon processors. Support for discrete GPUs is a necessity these days, as I'm sure MAGIX knows.

QSV has not been supported by Vegas up to now. So it IS a new feature.

I really hope I am not forced to upgrade to Vegas Pro 15 just to be able to natively edit GH5 10-bit video files. I've been using Vegas since the days when Sonic Foundry owned it 15 years ago, but I am a little p*ssed that MAGIX has been dragging their feet about enabling GH5 10-bit compatibility.

So far I've been getting by with transcoding my GH5 files to another CODEC, but what happens when other cameras like the Canon C200 or the Panasonic EVA1 come out after Vegas Pro 15 is released ?

Am I going to have to wait until Vegas Pro 16 is released to open files shot with these cameras so MAGIX will have guaranteed Vegas Pro upgrade sales ?

PeterWright wrote on 7/16/2017, 8:42 PM

The Dingo - I have a friend who has just come across the GH5 10 bit into Vegas problem - what do you use to transcode, and does it take long?
By the way, I think there may be many other reasons to upgrade to VP15 ...

TheDingo wrote on 7/16/2017, 9:22 PM

I use the free Sony Catalyst Browse 2017.1 browser app to open my GH5 10-bit videos and use the built-in Transcode feature to export my videos as Sony XAVC INTRA format, which maintains the 10-bit 4:2:2 color from the original GH5 files, and these XAVC INTRA files can be opened by many different editors, including Vegas Pro 13 or Vegas Pro 14.
