Hello guys at Magix.
Since several previous versions, this problem persists!
Vegas Pro successfully recognizes automatically Alpha Channels ONLY for PNG 8-bit and PSD. Just this two formats, and no other more!
Formats WITH alpha Channels, such as PNG 16-BIT, TIFF with 8 and 16 bits, QuickTime with alpha channel and OpenEXR RGBA... The alpha channel of these formats are ignoreds by Vegas Pro. Vegas Pro treat this as if they are all flat RGB with no alpha channel. Vegas Pro is blind to recognize Alpha Channel for these formats.
Thanks to this vexing bug, I need to change the properties of each object on the timeline, one by one, and that's tremendously counterproductive. Any other program recognizes alpha channels in TIFF, OpenEXR and RGBA 16-bit PNG. Except Vegas Pro!
As proof of this, I have provided a HitFilm Express 12.3 project just to see how this program automatically detects alpha channels where Vegas Pro fails.
Please compare projects 1 and 2 and see the difference. At first, I left the source files the way Vegas Pro interprets them. In the second, I manually changed the properties of each file so that Vegas could recognize the alpha channel.
I feel sad to see this happen with a program that is already in the 16th edition.
