Dear Community,

The VEGAS team has worked relentless. You can see the results in our second update for VEGAS Pro 16.

You have a lot to read. This is why we just want to say: Thank you for your continuously support and feedback!

We hope you like it the new update. Let us know in our general discussion thread.

  • A dialog box warns the user that the Main Timeline storyboard cannot be altered until it is updated to be in sync with the main timeline
