That is a route I could take... but it still requires that I import the video, set the project settings, render the image out, then import that into another project. I was just hoping there could be a way that I can just make a subclip instantly that knows to sample the video it came from at the rate I specify.

If you happen to have Vegasaur - you can do that in one project, without leaving it or rendering.

...You can't completely avoid tweaking some settings anyway...

I'm still downloading, but watching the tutes - good to see some neat new features already. The OFX P in P and Crop make things very easy, as does the LUTS. Selective Paste Attributes good, Freeze Frame much quicker with one click - there are more .....

Yes Peter, selective PEAing gets my vote!

As a Vegas Pro 14 owner I have to pay another $249 for 15? Are you kidding me?

I upgraded last night I have and have purchased the Suite Version as I view it as a good value based on the additional products it offered that I can use which were not in my current program collection.

I think we need a word from Magix on their future upgrade scheme regarding frequency and pricing. Do we have to expect annual upgrades and does Magix wants us to shell out 349$ per year?

Exactly... I'd like to know if I pass on the $249 upgrade now, and VP16 will at last offer the basic stuff I need - will I be able to upgrade from my VP14, or have to pay the full price for that VP 16 release...

I remember my times as a beta-tester during SCS-days.... well, we could give our comments and hints, but finally nobody was listening or reacting at anything. same here. sorry....

At IBC-fair in Amsterdam they had a hidden booth (right beside the toilet, which is of course strongly frequented...)

If VEGAS stays PRO they should also show their face in Amsterdam next month. - but.... nobody there...

VP 15....

Basicly NO CHANGES AT ALL. Thanks for having a dark interface. Whatfor?

Simply undocking windows for a 3-Monitor place forced me to check the manual... kiddish.

Funny coloured knobs (reminds me to FRUITY LOOPS...)

Finally my point of view: MAGIX will be interested in doing their own product line without paying licence fees to SCS. I understand. But then it would be better, to tell us straight into our faces and not keeping us waiting for nothing. And paying for nothing that special !!!!

Yes, I am a VEGAS-fan since V8 and I moved so many people from FCP, Premiere and AVID to this nice prog. Now I myself am thinking of rollin back to something else.

THANKS for noticing that.

I wonder why you have this impression.

Is that no change at all really:

A new MAGIX AVC/AAC codec significantly accelerates encoding on machines that utilize Intel® Quick Sync Video (QSV) technology

A new MAGIX AVC/AAC codec significantly accelerates encoding on machines equipped with modern NVIDIA graphics card GPU technology

The user can now select from the list of attributes of a copied timeline clip event to specify which attributes will be pasted into a target event

ACES 1.0 support enable users to work with the expanded color spaces and dynamic range of modern cameras.

More efficient handling of AVC files on the timeline through Intel QSV technology

Picture-in-picture OFX plug-in enables the user to perform size and position adjustments of video at any of the four effects levels (including track and event) through parameter adjustment controls and direct interaction with the Video Preview window

Crop OFX plug-in enables the user to quickly crop out portions of a video at any of the four effects levels (including track and event) through parameter adjustment controls and direct interaction with the Video Preview window

The user can specify which track header buttons and controls appear on tracks and set these (separate for audio and video tracks) as project defaults for all new tracks in the current and new projects. Controls that have been hidden can be accessed through a new "hamburger button" menu

LUT Filter OFX plug-in enables the user to apply LUTs to their project at any of the four supported FX levels (event, track, media, and video bus)

Redesigned timeline clip events now contain headers to hold important information and buttons and can be customized through the hamburger button/menu system.

The user can specify which controls appear in the transport area of both the Trimmer Window and the Video Preview window as project defaults for the current and new projects. Controls that have been hidden can be accessed through a new "hamburger button" menu

A simple "one-click" option creates a freeze frame on all selected events touched by the timeline cursor

Users can specify one of four options for the shading of the VEGAS Pro interface ranging from very bright to a dark interface

Users can define the amount (strength) of color they want shown in their buttons

Modern controls enable logical docking and undocking of windows and maximizing windows within a dock

A user-friendly and intuitive Render As dialog box makes it easy to understand and specify render options

The Share Online option now provides direct render-and-upload operations for YouTube, FaceBook, and Vimeo

Optimized default user layout to reduce visual clutter

Non-selected timeline clip events are now the same color as the corresponding track header while selected events are white. This (while directly opposite previous behavior) reduces visual "clutter" and the harsh appearance of events, particularly in large projects

New layout option enables user to switch back to the VEGAS Pro 14 default layout, including revealing all buttons in the hamburger menu system

The default Pan type has been changed to Constant Power which is the most logical and expected type

Audio notification alerts you when your render is complete for all format types

My guess is that the bundled versions are only good for the version of Vegas they came with. But that's a guess. I just got confirmation from New Blue that their products that come with Vegas 15 are good beyond the life of 15:

Hi Chris,

Thanks for your interest in our products and for getting in touch.  Typically our bundled products will only activate in the version of Vegas the are bundled with.  But in this case, you will receive full retail versions of Filters 5 and Titler Pro 5 respectively that will indeed work in later versions of Vegas as well as other editing applications.

Thanks again for your interest!

The upgrade for Mercalli 4 and CMOS Fixr that was bundled with VP14 Suite is now available on proDAD's website for $99 US. https://www.prodad.com/Video-Stabilization-for-Professionals/Mercalli-V4-Plugins-for-Vegas-29796,l-us.html

That gets you the stabilizer, CMOS Fixr and a standalone version of the stabilizer. I purchased it last night.

@bigrock That's what it's intended for. I haven't tested it myself though.

Yes, I tested it and it works. I was told by ProDad it should also work with 16 when it comes out. But, even if it did not, the standalone version you get with the upgrade will work with any platform, just not from within the platform.

Have any of the updates addressed a bug with the Dynamic Ram Preview (Shift+B)?? I was trying out Pro 15 but it won't do this preview for my projects that I am working on in Pro 14. Thats a key feature that SHOULD work; I've never had this issue upon upgrading. I won't buy till I know this is remedied. (I just tried one of the patches and its still not fixed, any ideas?)

I will say so far I like the looks of 15. (The selective paste is something I have wanted FOREVER!! THANK YOU!)

PS: Idea for Pro 16: Could you PLEASE make it to where we can create custom folders in Vid effects/Transition tabs for like our favorite, most used ones?? That way you don't have to scroll up and and down for the ones you want, or for those used for specific projects. -Thanks!

What bug? It works fine for me... just gotta make sure you have enough RAM specified in the dynamic RAM preview settings.

Standalone restricts output. Recently I stepped into a “not-so-much” experience. Went back into the Plugin and used my Vegas outputs. Worth considering James 😉.

I am really excited about the date. Thank you so much for sharing this date.

Which date might that be? VP 16 just came out.
