VEGAS Pro 17 build 284 (first public release) 5th August 2019

New Features

  • Nested Timelines: This is a further development of the existing nested projects functionality. Where a nested project has to be opened in a second instance of VEGAS Pro for editing, with the nested timelines it is now possible to create and edit a "project-inside-a project" directly from the timeline.
  • Color Grading window: Several color-related Video Event FX (including Input LUT, Color Wheels, Color Curves,HSL, White Balance and many more) are combined in a dedicated screen area that is easily shown or hidden with a toolbar button. To save you a lot of clicks it can stay open to apply the desired color grading to the different events, instead of opening each event's FX chain and loading the color FX separately.
  • LUT Export: Save all color effects from an effect chain as a CUBE file with the Save LUT button in the Plug-in chooser window.
  • Improved Storyboard functionality: You can add the same piece of media to a single storyboard, and thumbnails reflect the in point of the media that is used in the timeline.
  • Warp Flow transition/Smart Split: The Warp Flow transition automatically fixes jump cuts by synthesizing movement. The Smart Split command cuts out parts of an event and applies the Warp Flow transition to conceal the cut.
  • Mesh Warp plug-in for creative deformation of your footage, or, when you set the grid size to 1x1 it gives you four corner points to quickly conform your video to a non-rectangular four-sided surface.
  • Lens Correction plug-in to compensate distortions from wide-angle lens systems as used in action cams.
  • HDR Color support enhancements:
    • GPU-based processing
    • Windowed HDR Preview (preview in the Video Preview window)
    • HDR Specific color grading
    • HLG support
  • Stabilization improvements: Using the Video stabilization is now also possible at event level, when used on event level it is possible to visualize the motion tracks of the stabilization.
  • Collaboration Center: Attach notes to your project if you want to hand it to someone else. The notes can be tagged as "resolved", resolved notes can be hidden.
  • Automatic Slideshow Creator: Create a Slideshow of a desired length from a folder or selection of pictures.
  • Adjustable Color temperature enhancement to White Balance plug-in.
  • Audio synchronization for multicam: Synchronize Multicam footage by analyzing and matching the audio track of the recordings.
  • 8k support : You can add 8k to your project now when using proxy files.
  • New Formats:
    • Experimental MKV support.
    • 10 bit intermediate format
    • ProRes 4444 files with embedded alpha channels
    • NVENC 10-bit HEVC rendering
    • Hardware decoding for AVC and HEVC
  • User Interface improvements:
    • You'll get a warning when you delete a track that has events on it.
    • Hi-DPI interface improvements: The High DPI mode is now defaulted to on for VEGAS Pro17
    • You can display the Event length on the header of timeline events. Find it in the hamburger menu for each event or under the View menu.
    • Temporarily ignore event grouping when moving an event: Hold both the left and right mouse buttons as you drag an event to move it independently from other group members.
    • There's a new indicator on an event to show if Media FX have been applied to the media the event holds (find it in the event hamburger menu)
    • You will be asked to confirm if you click cancel in a render process.
  • New, task specific, default layouts / Dashboard: Easy editing modes for beginners work with a simplified version of the user interface that show only the most important controls for a step-by-step walk-through from adding media to the final movie, everything put together in the Dashboard window. The Guided Video Creator from the Tool Menu takes you through these steps.
  • VEGAS Screen Capture utility: Record video streams from your browser or video game.
  • Motion tracking: Track motion in a scene and let other events or text follow the movement.
  • Super-smooth slow motion (optical flow and motion estimation) with the VEGAS Slow Motion plug-in
  • VEGAS POST integration
  • [Moderator Addition: Color Balance, Contrast and Histogram Equalization auto modes added to the Color Curves FX]
     

Bugfixes

  • Render As dialog box shows the correct disk space when switching disks.
  • PreRes files creating with the RED Epic Helium camera are now properly supported.

VEGAS Pro 18 / VEGAS POST Suite build 284 (first public release) 3rd August 2020

From C:\Program Files\VEGAS\VEGAS Pro 18.0\readme\Vegas_readme.htm

  • Motion Tracker Panel: Track motion in any video event with a dedicated Motion Tracker panel , the detected trace (including perspective size change and distortion) can be used in any other event FX that takes location data. Note that in favor of this more generalized solution, the motion tracker was removed from the Bézier Masking FX.
  • Improved Video FX, Transitions and Media Generator windows: Effects can be filtered by category and provider, you can search for an effect name and mark favorites to quickly find your favorite effect.
  • 8-Bit (full range) pixel format: This new default project pixel format supports full-range media files without conversion, while limited or undefined range files are converted to full range. The range setting for individual media is user definable in full-range projects, and the traditional 8-Bit (video level) format is still available.
  • Black Bar Fill plug-in: Fill the black bars that are created when inserting upright video or images into your movie with a blurred copy of the image.
  • Denoiser plug-in for high quality noise removal from videos.
  • Flicker Control plug-in for the reduction of flicker artifact caused by a wrongly synchronized CMOS sensor and artificial light sources or by changing lighting conditions in time-lapse sequences. You can also add artificial flicker to simulate a certain look
  • Style Transfer plug-in: Use the power of Artifical Intelligence to stylize your videos to make them look they were painted in the style of famous artists.
  • Colorization plug-in: Colorize black and white video with the VEGAS Pro AI to add more realism to that footage.
  • Integrated graphics card driver update check.
  • The Lens Correction FX has got an additional zooming factor to hide ragged black borders at the corners of the image.

  • Incremental Save: Save a new version of your project with keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Alt+S with an auto-numbered file name.
  • A more detailed render progress dialog shows information about expected render time, end time, file size and many more.
  • Swap video files. From the Project Media dialog, you can swap the media files used in a project by choosing a different folder that contains the new video files. All files with the same name (regardless of file extension) are exchanged. You can also exchange video files only during the rendering process.
  • New Video Scopes options: The RGB parade view can work in two different modes, Separate and Combined. Also an optional Skin Tone Line display was added.
  • Alternate High DPI mode. A new preference is now available in the General tab of the preferences dialog for an alternate High DPI mode, which may improve the High DPI experience for users who have multiple monitors that have different scaling levels set in Windows.
  • Logarithmic Exposure adjustment was added to the Color Grading panel.
  • Some more legacy features were hidden by default, use Preferences > Deprecated Features to make these visible again: Sony Wireless Media adapter, Print to Tape, Video capture, VEGAS Pro connect.

Additionally from the release announcement:

  • Dockable Color Grading Panel
  • More efficient Color Grading Panel UI
  • Improved auto-contrast in Color Grading panel
  • Hardware encoding for Intel HDR presets
