Dear Community,

First and foremost, we want to thank you all for your continued loyalty and your patience. This time, we have a large update for you where we will fulfill a longtime wish. Drum roll please... We will support AMD GPU acceleration!

But hold your horses...  There's more! We have a long list of performance and stability improvements for you as well.

New Features

  • Added support for AMD VCE hardware acceleration for encoding 8-bit, progressive HEVC files and H264 AVC/AAC files

  • Added an option to disable hardware acceleration when creating custom presets in Intel HEVC Render plugin
  • Added a preference that enables you to bypass QSV hardware acceleration and operate without this technology
  • Added a link in the Help menu to the VEGAS Community home page where users can quickly access the VEGAS user forums, tutorial videos, and the VEGAS Magazine
