- select events by holding the right mouse button (as in Cockos Reaper)

I agree with this 100%. I have been using Reaper for a few weeks and now I can't stop trying to marquee-select events in Vegas by dragging with the right mouse button. It feels clumsy now to have to click a button to change edit tools. Much faster to use a different mouse button, or a mouse modifier key.

In general I would like to see more customizability of actions in Vegas. Vegas could learn a lot from Reaper in that respect. It allowed me to change nearly every mouse and keyboard action to make it behave like Vegas, to the point that I'm happy to switch to it as my DAW from Reason (which drove me nuts in terms of timeline navigation etc.). Vegas could retain more new users if they could configure actions to behave like other programs that they are used to.

I know. This feature is very addictive.
As well as a way to make the transition between the events in Vegas.
Simply revolutionary and simple features that no other software has.

In general I would like to see more customizability of actions in Vegas. Vegas could learn a lot from Reaper in that respect. It allowed me to change nearly every mouse and keyboard action to make it behave like Vegas,

Vegas has pretty elaborate keyboard action customization but no Mouse action tables I've been able to find. And that "Customize Toolbar" screen must pop up 20 times a session when I miss clicking on the zoom-in + sign and I'd love to be able to disable that. Love to disable or reassign the Mouse-wheel too.

OK, might as well unburden my soul while I'm here.

A feature I'm addicted to in Vegas is the way you can drag-mark a loop region on the timeline and then click on an envelope within the loop area to automatically insert 2 pairs of break-point nodes. But it drives me nuts that it only works with the normal-edit tool. And doesn't work at all with the envelope-edit tool. Which is what I should be using when I'm... editing envelopes.

Speaking of editing envelopes, I'd like to have the ability with the envelope-edit tool to select nodes for edit by surrounding them with a dragged out rectangular stringy-box. Currently you can drag out a loop region to select nodes but it gets every one of them within the loop region. But what I more frequently want to do is just select the top nodes without the bottoms so I can drag them all up to a different level while the bottoms stay put. This could replace using a loop region to select nodes so that loop regions could be used to insert break-point nodes instead.

More in the nature of a fix, I'd also like to also see them straighten out the behavior of the key-frame automation screen in the FX window. I tend to put in as many keyframes as I do envelope nodes. I always set it to sync with the time-line cursor, which is does nicely, but then it loses sync with itself. Sometimes going to unexpected places when I click the next-keyframe button. Sometimes nearby but other times to the end of the video. Which is a bummer when I'm editing a multi-hour show with hundreds of keyframes and have to fish around to find my place again. And the zoom setting is totally unstable... resets itself to complete zoom-out many times a session.

Last changed by Howard-Vigorita on 5/4/2020, 1:12 AM, changed a total of 1 times.

Hello, this is my list of new features :

1. When I move an event in the timeline with ctrl+right mouse : I see the context menu where I can choose to only copy the audio or only the video.
2. Zoom in and out the preview-screen without changing the entire Vegas configuration.
3. Add a button to turn the Project Media Hover Scrub on or off.
4. Increase the marker numbering to 999.
5. Add to "Selectively Paste Event Attributes" the transition Fade-In Offset and Fade-Out Offset also at events without overlap.
6. Enlarge the Fade In and Out Snap as it becomes invisible and not to be snapped when the Velocity envelope is at 1000%.
7. Enlarge also the snap offset.
8. Update all old video DX-effects to newer OFX-plugins. These DX effects are not always compatible with some third party applications and certainly also important is that the parameters of an effect can not be animate separately!
9. Include a message "Split Option" by splitting a "Media Generator Event" and then make a new or reference event. The same message and changes as with the Paste Options.
10. Add several subfolders in the Project Media > Media By Type, I could have placed all my media in a specific folder!
11. In the Customize Timeline Toolbar, add button "New Empty Event".
12. I found some improvements to be made in ProType Titler :
    - Highlight the ProType Titler track when selecting a text in the  preview
    - Synchronize the ProType Titler cursor positions on the Vegas Pro main timeline
    - Quantize to Frames (snap cursor to frame positions)
    - Select, Copy and Paste the ProType Titler keyframes
    - The ability to mutually change the position of the ProType Titler tracks
    - Change an element anchor point by entering its positions manually separately from its offset position and have the ability to animate the abchor point
    - The ability to animate a path
    - Include presets for the path as circle, square, rectangle, triangle, star , ...
    - Improvement the path bezier handles (move handles separately to create sharp corners easier)
    - Rotate characters, words, lines and a whole text around his x-axis and his y-axis
Greetings

Hello, I have a comment to pierre-k.

I read in your text that you would like to see effects in Vegas pro 18 similar to this one in Vegasaur!
Indeed Vegasaur Tools contains many good tools and effects to use in Vegas Pro. 
This work is done, leave where it is! Buy Vegasaur and use these tools. This gives vegasaur developers support and the chance to develop Vegasaur Tools even better.😉

Greetings Alain

Dear Alain.
I gave this feature from Vegasaur as an example.
More effects for keyframe uses many other programs. For example, Blufftitler.

And much easier than Vegasaur, using only two keyframes.

I'm just gonna list out some existing features that need to be redesign

-Nested sequence can't be excess once the media is being reverse/modified

-Can't nest any generated media from VEGAS

-Nesting features need to be inside master timeline instead of creating more VEG file

that potentially can be moved/deleted.

-Add more new Composition option like divide blend mode etc.

-Can't send generated media, sub clip, nested sequence to VEGAS Effects.

-VEGAS Effects will add contrast & somehow convert the colorspace of the media.

-Dynamic Link between VEGAS Pro & VEGAS Effects.

-Adding presets chain without replacing the previous presets.

-Right click to create automation for audio FX without manually enable it in timelime. (Something like FL Studio)

(If this function possible I swear to god it will smash Premiere Pro even more audio editing)

-Improved the Audio Sync features

-VEGAS Pro warp stabilizer need one more tweak (It tend to go crazy if giant poll go across the frame)

-VEGAS need to update the color scopes. Very2 outdated

-VEGAS Need to have new HSL coloring OFX. Using AAV Color plugin is sluggish

-Secondary Color OFX need to be updated where it can denoise the selection

-The WB tools is no near perfect at all. It just slap on tint onto the video.

-VEGAS should automatically organize the media like Premiere so that the chance of missing file is reduced

(Sub folder is created base on how we organize media inside VP)

-Beziere Masking tool is awesome. But super sluggish as I need to create mask base on that small preview windows. It need it owns dedicated window like Pan/Crop.

-Update on the graph editor. The graph editor is functionless.

 

Something That VEGAS Pro must have/Should Have

-Stability

-Stability

-Yes, Stability

-Make some fund just to rebuild VEGAS Pro from ground Zero.

-Create 3D Media without using the layer

-Adjustment Layer

-Ability to read RAW (VEGAS aren't meant for RAW, pls make it possible)

-Luma Key plugin (We need to use Boris just to do simple Luminance Key)

-VEGAS Pro need to add more transitions & make it customizable.

-When color grading, VEGAS should replace the "Split edit roll" function to compared

clip A & B for color grading work (Premiere Have this function)

-Graphical Title.

-Idk how to explain, but for Adobe products, Pr & Lr have this highlight slider. When you pull

it down it only affect the highlight so precisely. in VEGAS you can't do that. If you try to emulate

with Curve it will just dim down the White, loosing all of the charming highlight details.

The list is getting so long that it will work for Vegas 18-25 😅

 

- stability
- open beta testing
- MagicYUV 10-bit support
- ARRIRAW .arw support
- SONY RAW / X-OCN support
- Canon Cinema RAW support

- Native denoiser
- VST3 plugins support
- Plugin organizer
- Improvements to the current Media Manager
- 5.1 project with nvenc HW support output file rendering ready to play in one step without muxing offline
- import MKV with multichannel sound (Vegas could automatically convert DTS and AC3 to multi wav)
- export to MKV
- export subtitle track to SRT and SUB (as in Vegasaur)

- Velocity -1000%
- Velocity for audio track
- Change Playback Rate in Properties at the event automatically adjusts the audio track as well
- Update Transitions (Zoom warp...)
- Adjustment clip
- Improved selection and visual indication of auto ripple modes
- Improved migration of all features between versions including project properties, windows layouts, pan/crop templates. Migration is currently a mess. New versions should inherit all those settings from previous versions.
- Memorize the custom size of the thumbnails (Explorer/Effects/ ...) and all windows


- select events by holding the right mouse button (as in Cockos Reaper)

- Pin Effects to Motion Track (as in Vegasaur)
https://vegasaur.com/pin-effects-to-motion-track

- Improved native titler or upgrade Protype Titler with 3D text option (as in BluffTiler)
- add mirroring in the PiP plugin
- Improved besier keyframe curve, this will be a innovation for all plugins.
Improved vs Vegas non-improved keyframe curve:

- the ability to save an FX package which keyframes are placed at the beginning and which keyframes are placed at the end of the event.

- add more effects for transitions and all keyframe (as in Blufftitler, Vegasaur Tweener and many others)

https://vegasaur.com/tweener

- Pan / Crop - unlimited object zoom

- add the option Studio and Computer RGB to the Preview window
- close windows with ESC button
- Redesign of all audio plugins + Noise reduction
- Fix Vegas freeze when deleting events on the fly

- graphic design from alifftudm95

- suggestions from Amivideotek

and other great suggestions below in the discussion.

 

I suggest that this list, including the discussion, be published in the Vegas Forum in the Important posts section, because it is a request from all of us for future versions of Vegas - 19 and higher.

The requirements met and the listed version of Vegas will be marked in red.

 

 

Ah I did't saw that you also put my previous graphical suggestion for VP18 haha, thanks!

I added Beziere Masking UI designs :-)

Howard-Vigorita wrote on 5/4/2020, 1:22 PM

I love the Beziere Masking but 5 holes in the screen isn't enough to make an x-rite video color-chart mask. And I cannot seem to be able to get around that by stacking more that one. Maybe some presets for color-charts like in Resolve?

Two DPX requests:

The first isn't so much a major issue, but is more of an irritant:

For the last roughly two editions of Vegas (V15-V17) whenever opening DPX files, they do not show up unless one selects "All Files" then they populate. It's any easy workaround, but it does gets tiresome if one is opening up a lot of DPX files. Before Vegas 15 this was not an issue.

The second involves 10 bit DPX scans in a 32bit project. After Vegas 13 I've been unable to get unity out with DPX files via 10 bit in and out, and 10 bit scans from outside facilities don't have proper levels in either 32bit modes, but do have correct levels in the 8 bit mode. This is have been discussed various times here before. I'll be submitting some DPX frames to Vegas tech support some they can hopefully address the issue.

I have three simple Laws for the Vegas developers

Law #1 - More stability.

Law #2 - Better use of available compute during preview unless it interferes with Law #1.

Law #3 - No new features that would violate Laws #1 or #2.

I have spoken.

1) Contour Shuttle Control or Mouse Wheel Control on ALL Timelines.

2) Resizing of Panes that’s logical.

3) Safe Areas revealed on External Monitor, as it is in DVDA.

4) Track Naming Box that’s NOT invisible.

5) User option to remove EXPANDED EDIT MODE.

6) Script to Collapse Selection and then re-invoke it.

All you have to do is cancel the double mouse click.
Nothing else.

The keyboard shortcut num 5 remains and does not change.

Something like track for effects its possible? then you can mix effects, fade, like a normal video track.

My request has to do with new audio tools like 22.2 3d audio for 360 videos and 7.1 surround sound etc and more support for drives or for new digital mixers to control the mixing console in Vp the audio plugins they has not been updated in years we need De click removal https://www.izotope.com/en/products/rx/features/de-click.html

We need an updated version of the audio plugins most of them look the same as they were in 1999.

new

And we need more bands for EQ plugins as shown in the pic and show us the graph where all the frequencies are just like in the picture where all the whites lines and spikes are under the red line

VP EQ plugin is OLD

new fabfilter and up to date. https://www.fabfilter.com/
