New in VEGAS Pro 16
You asked for it, and VEGAS delivers advanced motion tracking that gives you the tracking power you need! Create sophisticated mask shapes and track any object to apply filters, special effects, and "pin" text to tracked objects with ease.
The video stabilization tool has been completely rebuilt with our own state-of-the-art technology. It now delivers excellent quality stabilization from even the shakiest footage.
With full support for High Dynamic Range (HDR) color, not only can you work with video footage shot with the latest cameras, but also preview your work on HDR reference monitors and deliver stunningly crisp HDR content.
Accelerate Your Creativity
VEGAS Pro 16 comes loaded with powerful new video editing features to help you work faster, smarter, and more creatively. The new version delivers on every level, with more flexibility, more power, and more professional features.
Sophisticated and flexible masking technology coupled with rock-solid motion tracking give you the ability to isolate moving objects in your scene. You can easily track their motion and "pin" text to them or apply color grading and other creative effects that follow them wherever they go. Integrated motion tracking developed by the VEGAS team specifically for VEGAS Pro provides lock-tight tracking results.
Turn shaky footage into smooth, pro-quality video in no time. The video stabilization engine has been completely rebuilt from the ground up to be far more powerful and easy to use. Get smooth results every time even on source material that was unusable before.
Streamline Your Workflow
Dynamic storyboard and timeline interaction
The dynamic storyboard workflow might just change the way you edit from now on. Quickly assemble rough cuts and alternate versions in an uncomplicated storyboard environment. Changes made to the main storyboard are reflected instantaneously in the timeline and vice versa. Additional storyboards can also be created and used for experimental edits, alternate sequencing, or as a new tool for organizing separate sections of your project.
Extensive file backup options
VEGAS Pro 16 features a comprehensive list of file backup options. You can back up your work after a set time (determined in minutes and hours) and keep any number of daily backups. You can automatically save the current project and a backup file after every edit. All backups can be saved to the same folder as the project file, a temporary location, or any user-specified location, and opened anytime you want to return to them.
Drag media bin to timeline
Save time! Files don't need to be added one by one anymore. You can now drag media bins (which also include the new storyboard bins) directly to the project timeline to add all of the bin's media files simultaneously.
Resizable media thumbnails
Project media thumbnails can now be enlarged so you can see more detail and achieve greater hover scrub accuracy. You now see a more accurate location of specific video frames and can edit with much finer hover scrubbing and more exact in/out marking.
Project media hover scrub
Hover scrubbing project media thumbnails gives you a quick way to identify the important points in your video files before you add them to your timeline. Simply move the mouse over a thumbnail in the Project Media window and scrub through the video to find a specific frame.
Project media in/out points
With the ability to place the hover scrub cursor at an exact frame within the Project Media thumbnail, you can now create an In or Out point at that location. When the file is added to the project, the resulting event will then automatically be trimmed down to these defined In/Out points.
Preview multiple selected project media files
It's now possible to select more than one media file in the Project Media window and preview each file, one after the other, in one continuous operation. This is great when you are working with storyboards because you will quickly be able to preview the entire storyboard in sequence.
Now you can easily and automatically close the gaps between any selected events on a track within a project. This helps you quickly clean up your projects and ensures you have no black frames between edits.
Select events from cursor
You can now select events from the current cursor position, including all events on selected tracks or within the entire project from the cursor to the end. It's a great way to quickly create space within a project to insert other events.
High DPI scaling
As more and more elements of VEGAS Pro become compatible with High DPI monitors, you can change to High DPI mode to take advantage of an even crisper, clearer user interface on your High DPI monitor.
Automatic subtitle creation from timeline regions or a file
Speech from a video that has been transcribed and entered as named regions in your project, a text file, or a spreadsheet can be used to instantly create a subtitle track. Subtitle positions can be automatically synced to project audio events and can be edited for fine tuning.
Add missing stream
Sometimes your project contains either the video or audio portion of a video clip on the timeline and you decide that you want the other portion too. This feature instantly finds the missing portion, creates an event for it and syncronizes it to the existing portion.
With full support for High Dynamic Range (HDR) color now included with VEGAS Pro 16, you can work with footage from the latest cameras, preview your work on an HDR reference monitor and deliver stunning-quality HDR work.
360 Degree Media Editing
360 Degree editing
VEGAS Pro 16 includes 360 Degree templates for some of the most popular cameras. Set your project up as a 360 project, stitch dual fisheye files seamlessly, preview your file with complete 360 control, apply 360 filters, and deliver as complete 360 videos. Give your viewers a completely immersive experience with 360 video.
Tiny Planet OFX plug-in
In the popular Tiny Planet effect, a subject appears to be standing on a super-small planet. The VEGAS Pro Tiny Planet OFX plug-in is the most elegant solution to create this effect instantly and includes effect animation and integration with regular or 360 Degree videos.
Tools to Take You Further
With the powerful, flexible Bezier masking plug-in, you can create up to five different masks, choosing from oval, rectangle or custom shapes. These can then either cut a section of the video out to reveal different video beneath, or have an effect applied within them - such as color grading or blur - making it possible to blur someone's face while leaving the rest of the video in focus. Tied in with the new motion tracker the mask can move along with an object during the course of the video.
Professional MAGIX eFX audio
VEGAS Pro 16 includes the high-quality Essential eFX audio plug-in suite. A flexible set of tools for shaping and mastering audio, it includes plug-ins for improving the quality of your soundtrack, reducing noise, or adding special effects like delay, reverb, chorus, and much more.
Give your videos that Hollywood look! With just a few clicks, you can add the atmosphere, feel, and look of famous films, movie genres, film stocks, or particular movie-making eras to your video. Take your viewers on a journey into a whole new realm.
