Some footage may appear brighter or darker at the lower-resolution settings due to the blurring of the video that naturally takes place at these low preview resolutions
  • Investigated a suspected bug where 4K ProRes files from a Blackmagix Designs camera has different gamma values in VEGAS Pro 14 compared to VEGAS Pro 13. This has been determined to be caused by a known flaw in the Apple QuickTime for Windows add-on software that was required to read these files in version 13. Our native reader in version 14 does not have this flaw and its output is correct
  • Custom window layouts that use tabs docked to the top of windows are now properly saved and persist through an application restart
  • The TrackGroup scripting class has been updated so that the Mute and Solo properties now return the correct values as expected
  • Fixed a problem that could cause a crash under certain circumstances when exporting a project as a VEGAS Pro archive
