Unparalleled video editing power
Hundreds of thoughtful, innovative features make Vegas Pro one of the most fluid and intuitive editing platforms on the market. When you move events on the timeline, visual alignment confirmation and user-definable snapping tools ensure that your media lands exactly where you need it with frame accuracy, and even sub-frame accuracy for audio. Automatically move or slip audio or video inside an event to synchronize media quickly and accurately. Insert audio or video envelopes to interactively control stereo or surround-sound panning and volume, video event velocity, and video track opacity. And that’s just the beginning of what you can do.
Expanded edit mode
Double-click at the edit point to see the timeline in a detailed A-B Roll view. The adjacent frames of the events at the edit point appear clearly above the tracks for reference, and unused media in the events appears in the timeline. With the edit point/event edge highlighted in red, you can trim it with the mouse or numeric keypad. Set a Loop Region around the edit point to dynamically add or remove frames from either side of the edit point while the media plays to create a highly precise, interactive editing experience.
Import and export a wide range of project files to and from Vegas Pro. Convert between the native .veg file and AAF for Avid® ProTools® 10, XML for Apple® Final Cut Pro® 7, Final Cut Pro X, DaVinci Resolve 10, and .prproj for Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC and After Effects® CC.
Vegas Pro natively supports frame sizes up to 4096 x 4096. The 4K image standard for digital cinema projection is 4096 x 2160 pixels. This level of resolution provides more detail and flexibility to pan and crop when delivering in HD. It’s ideal for compositing and video effects work as it provides a high-qualityfinal output. Vegas Pro natively supports XAVC and XAVC S files as well as RED ONE® and RED EPIC® files.
Better playback, faster renders. Take advantage of the power of the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) found in many of today’s most popular video display cards for smoother video playback and faster rendering. Vegas Pro 13 leverages the GPU for video effects, transitions, compositing, pan/crop, track motion, and encoding. An optimized hardware configuration that uses an appropriate GPU device dramatically improves timeline performance. Enjoy higher resolution previews with multiple effects in Vegas Pro 13, and crank encoding speeds up by as much as six times over previous versions to popular formats like AVC. Vegas Pro 13 uses OpenCL™-supported devices from AMD, NVIDIA, and Intel to unleash your creative vision.
Multi-format native editing
Vegas Pro takes a no transcode, no rewrap approach with Panasonic P2 AVC-Intra and DVCPRO source material. Vegas Pro eliminates the transcode and rewrap process that other applications require, so editors can save valuable production time, minimize storage requirements, and preserve the pristine quality of the original source material. Other natively supported codecs and formats include XAVC, XAVC S, XDCAM™, XDCAM EX, NXCAM, HDCAM-SR™, AVCCAM, RED® R3D, AVCHD, and AVC-based MOV files from popular DSLR cameras. For 3D content creation, Vegas Pro also supports stereoscopic 3D MVC and MPO files from Sony camcorders.
