Sorry; no significant new formats in this release. But it's definitely high on our priority list after this release. We are constantly working on performance and making steady progress. I guess checking it in the trial version when it comes out will be advisable.

Will Vegas Pro 17 support any new video file formats like Canon's Cinema RAW Light? Or will Vegas Pro 17 have improved preview playback of Prores 422? I find even with my high-end PC that Prores files really lag when played in the preview window with Vegas 16 making editing difficult.

Would you need to hire new employees to work on adding support for Canon Cinema RAW Light...

I don't want to keep going back to old, worn-out "excuses," but we're still digging out of the hole caused by the long break in development on VEGAS Pro, which of course, was not under our control in prior years. We are aggressively trying to modernize the software. Many of the complaints you see about performance/stability on this forum are directly related to what you're hoping we will do: support more modern formats. We're trying to do that while still providing useful new features, and even trying to innovate again as we can.

Sure, more developers might get us there faster, but there are business decisions to be made about the size of staff we can afford to carry given the revenues and all the rest. It's not that we don't want to give you this feature. We certainly do.

I am curious. Would you need to hire new employees to work on adding support for Canon Cinema RAW Light because all of your programmers are currently working full time on other features and updates for Vegas Pro? I noticed that when the Canon C200 first came out in October - January there was a lot of interest in FaceBook video groups in trying new NLE programs that could support Cinema RAW Light and it would have been a great opportunity for marketing Vegas Pro if it could have supported it. I have looked into to Resolve and still like Vegas Pro better for editing. I particularly like that in Vegas I can edit audio as well as video on the timeline without going into separate modules like in Resolve where I can no longer see the video track.

@terry54321, I love your passion and persistence, and we are certainly weighing our priorities on a constant basis. I can't make any promises on a timeline for that support right now, though nothing is ever ruled out.

Premiere Pro has now added support for Canon Cinema RAW LIght http://wallabysandwich.tumblr.com/post/172420051184/premiere-pro-and-canon-cinema-raw-light-format I hope Vegas Pro will add support soon for Canon Cinema RAW Light.

Here is a Canon company video which explains when you get into it aways about how the Canon provided plugin for Avid works to debayer the Cinema RAW Light file so it can be opened in Avid as a Canon Log 2 Cinema Gamma file which then can be converted to other Canon Log color spaces or converted to Rec 709 Wide DR with Canon LUTS that are available for download from Canon. I think Final Cut Pro X has a similar plugin. Also, Resolve and Edius have implemented something similar.

Thanks for the tip. I will look into it.

Gary-Rebholz, I understand Canon is helping the software companies to add Canon Cinema RAW Light support to their editors. For example, Canon provided a plug-in for Avid. Perhaps it would not be too difficult for the development team to add support for Canon Cinema RAW Light if they contacted Canon for assistance.

@terry54321, Unfortunately, we're not currently working on that format specifically. Of course, we're always working to improve our format support, and we continue to release updates to that end. That particular format has not risen above others at this time, but you letting me know that it is important to you helps. It's exactly the type of feedback we need from you users. I've confirmed that your request has been added to our database prioritization, but I can't guess about when we might get to it. I'm sorry; I know that's not the answer you want to hear, nor the one I want to give, but I want to make sure you know where we're at with that.
