Dear Community,

We are happy to, once again, address some of the user feedback in our newest update for VEGAS Pro. This time, we are releasing the first update for VEGAS Pro 15, build 216.

Our developers put a lot of effort into bug fixes and are proud to present a couple of new features you might like.

You can download the build 216 now at: http://rdir.magix.net/?page=9OK0C3E94P31

Here are the patch notes for this update:

Features

  • It is now possible to "heal" or "join" two events that hold the same media back into a single event
  • From the Render As dialog box, you can now swap all of your project media video files for video files with the same names (but potentially different file extensions) enabling you (for example) to work with proxy files on your timeline and switch to the full-resolution files to render. After the render completes, the files are swapped back.
  • A new option in the Project Media window enables you to swap all of your project media video files for video files with the same names (but potentially different file extensions) at any time
  • The Picture-in-Picture and Crop plug-ins now show different mouse icons depending upon which handle you point to in the Video Preview interacts
  • Added a button to events that enables the user to hide/show the new event headers
  • You can now set a preference to reverse the color of selected events so that it matches the behavior in version 14 and earlier where none selected events are white and selected events are colored
  • 4K, 10-bit 4:2:2 AVC files from the Panasonic GH5 camera are now supported

Bug Fixes

  • Interlaced presets now function properly in the QSV encode option for files rendered with the MAGIX AVC/AAC plug-in
  • Picture-in-Picture help button now opens the proper help
  • VEGAS now automatically switches to the correct version of ACES based on the project settings when opening an existing project
  • ProRes audio and video now sync properly when added to the timeline
  • Optimized the code used for reading AVC, HEVC, and other file types so that it utilizes less system memory
  • Optimized the reading of MP4 files in the Explorer window
  • The Picture-in-Picture and Crop plug-in interacts now behave correctly at Good Full and Best Full
  • Saved projects now properly retain media markers and regions for MP4 files even if the project is closed and reopened
  • The fade-in offset in the event header is now properly available for crossfades
  • The Red Eye Reduction process now works properly
  • Fixed several broken interactive tutorials
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when entering into Expanded Edit mode
  • Picture-in-Picture and Crop plug-ins now correctly handles all pixel aspect ratios
  • The event indicators now properly show up on a collapsed group track
  • Audio bus tracks now use the correct icon
  • Rendering HEVC CBR now properly produces CBR output
  • HSL Adjust plug-in no longer causes color banding in 8bit GPU or 32bit CPU projects
  • Media markers are now much easier to see in non-selected events
  • NV Encoder render no longer fails with template rename/new template selection
  • Various display issues have been fixed in Windows 7 running in High DPI setups
  • Certain MAGIX AVC/AAC MP4 templates no longer crash upon selective prerender
  • Long HEVC files no longer cause a playback crash
  • Empty entries no longer appear in the main toolbar customize dialog
  • The hit area of timeline markers has been tightened up so that it is once again possible to drag above the markers to create a time selection
  • Can again properly read the text when you hover over files in the Explorer window
  • The ToolTip has been fixed for the Output Buss on audio track headers
  • Added the inadvertently omitted MainConcept AAC encoder back in as a render format
  • The Shift+Ctrl+C shortcut key once again properly hides just the event buttons without affecting active take information visibility
  • Reverted the default pan type back to Add Channels instead of Constant Power so that users no longer experience a 3dB volume attenuation in tracks panned to center
  • Fixed an occasional crash when building thumbnails in the Explorer window
  • Combining footage of some formats along with Panasonic P2 footage no longer causes the P2 footage to appear as green frames
  • Fixed a problem where opening the Render As dialog when the save folder is set to a network location could result in an error
  • The Titles and Text cursor is now more visible when using the dark background scheme
  • The offline media info text is now more readable
  • The Freeze Frame at Cursor operation now works properly when the cursor is at the first frame of the event
  • Fixed a bug that could prevent users from successfully creating blu-ray image files
  • Fixed a problem that could cause some MP4/AVC files to be displayed in the file explorer and properties windows with the wrong file type
  • ProRes 29.97 render templates no longer incorrectly shift the audio by 0.006 seconds
  • Audio is now more properly synchronized with the video when rendering to ProRes and HEVC formats
  • Fixed a crash when reading specific MP4 AVC/AAC files with so4 HW decoding enabled
  • Video preview for MP4 files now works properly with so4 HW decoder enabled

Hi everybody,

Two discussion threads are a little redundant and hard to keep track of. This is why I try something new and will lock this thread.

This thread is only for information purposes. I will read your feedback in Nick's discussion thread. 😉

Best regards,
Mathias
