New Vegas Pro 9


My video editing software, Sony Vegas, is coming out with version 9.0 shortly and I just read an article on it’s improved functionality.  Here are my notes as to the top new features:

  • New default skin is made of a darker base-color. Don’t worry, you can always change it back
  • 32-bit & 64-bit are available, and the 64-bit is “tremendously” more stable than 8.1.
  • Built-in defaults to work with 2K and 4K, combined with new support for using .r3d files!
  • This used to be available under the Scripts menu, but now you can “Render as Image Sequence” directly from the render dialogue.
  • Vegas now has a built in feature which looks at the project properties and determines the best render output settings by putting an “=” sign to the left of it in the render dialogue.
  • Many new effects are included, such as Glint, Rays, Defocus, Starburst, Soft Contrast, and Fill Light.  Also a new transisition called Gradient Wipe.
  • To create audio keyframes, simply select an area and drag the envelope up or down and the four nessecary keyframes are automatically created.
  • Video events will show only the first, middle, and last frames as previews on the event on the timeline.  This is a default and can be changed to “None”, “Head”, Head,Tail”, or “All”.
  • When you hold down CTRL+ALT+Shift and click on an event, it will split the event. If you then drag right, it will trim the front of the event on the right. If you instead drag left, it will trim then end of the event to the left.
  • When slipping an event that has multiple takes, you can now slip all takes instead of only the active take. To activate this new feature, turn on OptionsSlip All Takes.
  • Audio adjustments are no longer quantized to frames by default.
  • Vegas now uses 16-bit peak files
