The blurred illustration of the GUI is pathetic hype. It's not as if MAGIX are predating the unveiling of the long expected new Tesla model . If we have enough imagination to make films we have more than enough imagination to know what a darkened Vegas GUI would look like.

MAGIX knows what we Vegas customers want, I think. Users have been very, very, very clear about that on these forums.
- Stability, and responsiveness to correct glitches as found
- Support for all the most powerful GPUs, which come from two primary sources: NVidia and AMD

Those are things that will save users time, and therefore save users money. Those are things that will motivate paying for a new version of the software. Cosmetics shouldn't motivate many decisions to spend the money on the new version.

What about DVD Architect? We need an update to it. Multi-channel audio support (especially 7.1 24bit LPCM, so my band can finally start releasing high-res multichannel mixes of our material!) for DVD and Blu-Ray, improvements to the encoder's speed, more options for creating buttons in addition to the existing library of presets. Maybe even a system for labeling the discs after they've been burned? Also, the ability to send video direct from a Vegas project into DVDA without encoding. Let us highlight a region, then select "send to DVD Architect" and it pops up in the media list in DVDA.

I've never requested enhancements to DVDA since I've been happy that it's been a stable product. That said, I second the request for faster re-rendering that takes advantage of multiple cores/processors.

I also spend a frustrating amount of time with every project (I deliver about 30 DVDA projects annually) doing repetitive tasks to get my "scene selection" submenus formatted the way I want. I've tried creating custom templates but they never seem to work properly. Here's my flow....

  1. Right-click the main title, choose "Create scene selection menu" (with 10 items). This creates two rows of 5 items each.
  2. For each page of the scene selection submenu:
    - Change the text of "Back" to "Menu"
    - Change the color/format of the navigation menus at the bottom
    - Change the menu's end-action to "loop"
    - Change the title at the top to something meaningful
    - Highlight the 10 links and resize to fill the page, then change the text size to 12-point bold font, and make sure they are set to "animated frames"
    - Tweak each of the 10 link texts to fit without overlapping other objects
    - Tweak the media thumbnail to something pretty for each of the 10 items
    - Click on each object with the "link" tool selected, and link them so that there is a logical progression using the right and left arrows such that every object can be selected (useful for end-users who lose their remote control and only have left/right ability

If I could customize those scene selection submenus and save that as default or a template to avoid some of those repetitive steps, I'd be SO THANKFUL..

Why would Magix have an end of year sale on an upgrade to version 14 when 15 is going to be release so soon. There's no mention of what happens when someone does this upgrade and then 15 comes out. Do they get it for free? ...or is it another fee to be added? I can't find any policy on this.

fr0sty wrote on 8/3/2017, 10:19 PM

On their Facebook page they said there is an upgrade fee.

sam-walker wrote on 8/5/2017, 1:55 PM

Was getting ready to upgrade to 14 from 12 when I saw this thread. So the question is, why would I want to do that instead of waiting for 15?

I, for one, am 100% behind you guys. I love Vegas and it has been the main editing program I've used for several years. I have tried Adobe and others, and have always found Vegas to be the most stable and intuitive program to use. I am so glad Magix picked it up. Not to name names, but I tried another well-known editing program and it crashed on me the very first time I used it. After that, I have kept to Vegas and have never looked back. Right now, I'm in the process of using it to edit my first feature length film, so I hope to continue to see it improve and become even better. I also like that it seems at home with Sony's codec, as I shoot primarily with Sony cameras. You will never please all the people all the time, but I definitely love the program and I'm glad to see it still being developed in 2017. My main concerns are program stability, the ability to color correct in 32 bit, and improved rendering performance where possible.

Dear community,

Almost a full year has passed since the revival of VEGAS Pro, and what ride it's been! Your support and enthusiasm have been nothing short of amazing. You have given us fantastic feedback and ideas for the future. So now we're excited to announce that the future you helped create begins to unfold with the release of VEGAS Pro 15 on August 28.

What can you expect from VEGAS Pro 15? Well, we can't list all the new features just yet, but here are a couple that we'll know you'll be interested in because they came directly from your feedback!


A GUI for everyone

From the moment you open the new software, you'll notice major UI changes which are not only designed to look pretty, but also bring innovative usability improvements to your workflow. Now more than ever, you can choose the GUI setup that works for you. For example, from in depth community discussion, we learned that some of you like a dark background, and some want to keep a lighter background. Some want monochromatic buttons, and some value buttons with color. Now those choices are up to you! And those are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to optimizing your workspace so that it works most efficiently for your unique editing style and workflow.


Editing speed efficiencies

You supplied a number of great ideas on how VEGAS Pro could speed your editing even more. We've implemented a number of these features. For instance, you wanted a "one-click" way to create a freeze frame in an event, and so in VEGAS Pro 15, you have exactly such a tool. Now, instead of following a multi-step procedure to create a freeze-frame video, you can accomplish the task with far less clicking. And that's just one example of how we've made editing faster and more intuitive.


Hardware accelerated Encoding/Decoding

VEGAS Pro 15 leverages modern hardware for accelerated encoding and decoding, including support for Intel Quick Sync Video (QSV) and other technologies.

We don't want to spoil all the surprises, but you'll only have to wait a little longer to get to know the other features and improvements of VEGAS Pro 15. We hope you are as excited as we are!


Best regards,
Mathias

Hi I just want to know what about multiwequence edit or nest sequence ? If it is OK,that vegas Pro is a wonderful edit software !!!

I think not this time. There are no prerequisites for this

Hey VCS, give us more information. I see no reason to keep intrigue. The less we know, the greater our expectations!

You can open multiple Vegas Pros (except with Steam edition version) and each Vegas Pro open different project. And to nest sequence, just drag the VEG project to timeline.

Dropping a VEG onto the timeline is not like creating sequences as in other NLEs. It has baggage. It's also nowhere near as clean to use.

Can you explain what you mean by this ?

I often create templates that I use in many different videos by encapsulating reusable elements in a VEG file.

I would create one template, and then do save-as per project.

@NormanPCN Can you explain further with 'nowhere near as clean to use'?

Thank you .I know this solution , but I think if Vegas can edit multisequence or nest like PR/FCP, it's so great and convenient. I hope the developers will solve it for all the users . I have no many requirments but this one, haha!!

Hello, I've been using Vegas since Vegas Pro 8 at work and I love it. I'm very excited to see the new release.

Here are my VEGAS Pro suggestions:

1.       Ability to disable double click at event corner for precise edits. I mean some crazy mouse would click two times when I click once on the event’s edge to change its length. It takes time for the program to “split” the tracks and then to add them together again.

2.       Add outline fx option to creditroll texts!

3.       Add Quantize all video-audio events script by default.

4.       Add Quantize markers script by default.

5.       Split screen color grading option for multicam editing. Allow users to colorgrade – apply fx – to the different camera angles while seeing all the angles at a time. Even if at playback it would require RAM preview or would be disabled it would help a lot at matching cameras.

6.       After expanding a multicamera track the name of the tracks disappear and the events within the track get the track name instead of their own file names.

7.       Enable Groups within a group. This would allow more transparent timeline overview at large projects.

8.       Ability to hide chosen groups, tracks temporarily.

9.       Add colored markers. If every marker is orange its confusing.

10.   Add a marker list window where I can look for different markers by color/name/timecode.

11.   Make an option to hide markers – hide all markers, hide all regions, hide markers by color temporarily. – Sometimes I don’t want to delete all the markers but they are disturbing during editing. It’s great that I can hide all the composition lines with CTRL+SHIFT+E. I would like a function to hide all the markers with a shortcut key like this.

12.   Audio buses within audio buses.

13.   Ability to hide buttons and panels on tracks temporarily. – They take up space and some people never use some of those buttons.

14.   Ability to hide Add Tags part of the project media window. Takes up space.

15.   Auto sound channel finder – when I have 1200 soundtracks it would show me only the ones that makes sound at the moment.

16.   Ability to nest and de-nest events

17.   Ability to see multiple timelines – projects within one Vegas Pro opened. At nesting it would help a lot.

18.   Dual Full Screen option in multicamera mode. I’d like to see all the camera angles in full screen on a screen while the selected camera angle on another screen also in fullscreen – not just preview window.

19.   Use GPU for Proxy file rendering. It takes forever no matter how good the PC is.

20.   Enable multi GPU usage at a time.

21.   Add 1:35:2 aspect ratio to the corop/pan window.

22.   Linking lowerthirds made in AfterFX. – so only the text layer needs to be changed. – like it’s done in Premiere.

23.   Black and White preview button on preview window. – when I use “multicamera mode” it would be a great option to not get confused by the dismatched color of the different camera angles.

I truly hope that Vegas Pro 15 meets our expectations/needs. The idea of going back to Premiere Pro or Avid Media Composer First doesn't thrill me - and yes, I've tried Resolve - but it will not run on my laptop no matter what I do - and I do need the ability to edit in the field at times as I do travel and have short turn around times for post. (crossing my fingers)

Did MAGIX remove that from VPro 14?
