Vegas Pro 19 Feature Requests

In Project Media window, when a media file is selected (highlighted in the list) and then right-clicked to Replace (to change file), a dialog box opens to browse for a new file. The selected filename appears at the top of the dialig box, but the highlighted media file in the media list becomes unhighlighted. It is a minor thing, but it would be nice to have the file remain highlighted in the media list while browsing for the new file -- so I can see what I am doing, and also refer to other media properties in the media list, while browsing for the replacement file.

Just another vote for reinstating the option to lock markers to events. I used to use that all the time, but I notice it's gone after the most recent update.

When you want to rename Marker in Vegas - you can double click and rename it instantly.

This is very handy and saves a lot of time during naming\renaming markers.

When you create a region - you CAN'T rename it with a double click.

Instead, you need to right-click it and choose "rename" from the dropdown menu.

This should be fixed.

In Vegas Pro when you press "CTRL+Up" or "CTRL+Down" Timeline area maximizes or minimizes zoom level.

 

This is similar to Premiere Pro's "Zoom to timeline" Hotkey.

 

This is a VERY HANDY feature.

 

But when you go to keyboard customization - you can't find this feature or change a hotkey for it.

 

This is not good and should be fixed\added to the shortcut customization menu.

When I select an event and nudge it UP or DOWN (to a different track), only the video or audio part is moving.

To select both audio+video parts I need to switch to the Selection tool, drag selection, and nudge then.

This is a bug and should be reported because by default EVENT is grouped AUDIO+VIDEO and should behave like a group.

The ability to easily save a project as a package to share with another editor.

When you first start Vegas, a little popup window that gives the the choice of:

1. Continue editing previous project

2. Start a new project

More visible audio waveform for quiet files. At times you can't really see it at all, which makes manually syncing a challenge.
A way to discard data for peaks when normalizing audio so you can bring up audio volume without getting stymied by a single loud noise or place where the audio clips.

@RogerS

Select an audio event, then Shift "Up arrow". Affects all events. I use it all the time to sync my files together as the automated tool is useless...

@Illusion Thanks for the tip. What exactly is this doing? It appears to affect the media as well (after doing it, moving the same media to the timeline again shows higher levels). Is there a way to do this that only affects some events? The problem I have is where in-camera audio is clean, but quiet, and doesn't show the waveform, while the external recorder has a robust waveform and doesn't need to be increased.

Illusion wrote on 1/20/2021, 8:27 AM

@RogerS It amplifies the waveforms, only the graphics, not the actual sound volume. As I said, it affects all events. The way I use it is I amplify the waveform when some of the events have weak audio to help me align my multicam clips together. Once done, I reduce it back using Shift "arrow down".

Otherwise, you may want to look at normalizing your weaker events.

RogerS wrote on 1/20/2021, 8:42 AM

@Illusion Thanks for explaining- that will be helpful for when I just can't see the waveforms well enough to align and don't really want to deal with cutting out peaks and normalizing. I wish there were a shortcut to restore to default waveforms (shift-0?) so I don't have to remember how man times I hit the arrow.

Illusion wrote on 1/20/2021, 10:34 AM

I just hit shift "down arrow" until it no longer changes, you cannot go negative.

OK, here is an easy one for Magix to do:

On the pan crop add the ability to draw down and across guide rulers to aid in using the anchor creation tool to help line up points. This is common in Photoshop and other graphic software.

As per this example:

any chance to Fix or improve VEGAS Grading Panel & WB color science/emulation? The Gamma/Lift create so much spills. The WB also spills & lifted the dark area. You can see the how the gradient map look comparing VP & DR

While I can't see the images given the forum issues at the moment, I completely agree. I'd like to see the wheels affect highlight/midtones/shadows more independently (fine if they overlap/feather a bit to avoid harsh transitions), but gain shouldn't be touching the shadows. Something like the Resolve controls in log mode would be way easier to control.

add ability to export with "closed" (or "soft" or "optional" or "embedded") subtitles - those which can be turned on/off in the video player. Preferably with .MP4 files (other editors do this with .mov quicktime and some other file types)

ability to handle (import & export) .mkv files would also be useful.

Reyfox wrote on 1/28/2021, 6:34 AM

The ability to "Close Gaps" in addition to every gap (as it is in VP18), but to be able to close gaps either before or after the cursor in the timeline.

The masking in the pan and crop tool could be better

We all know Vegas and Hitfilm are friends

So maybe it is better lend then do it yourself

Updating audio waveform
I would like to see an updating waveform display for audio events that reflects changes made by the volume Fx and other tools. Currently unless you normalize the audio, the audio waveform doesn't get bigger/ easier to see. For quiet clips its effectively invisible, making manual syncing a problem. If you have 32-bit audio and reduce clipped audio with volume Fx, the waveform still looks clipped, even though it's not. "Refresh audio peaks" doesn't fix this. Shift increase only works to make small waveforms visible, but anything at normal volume will become too high/no longer visible.
