Features

Editing

VEGAS Pro 17 once again stands out as an innovative leader when it comes to non-linear editing. The modern user interface delivers a completely customizable experience that provides the ultimate in flexibility. Innovative approaches and editing tools speed up your workflow and make you more efficient and ultimately more creative. Focus on your creativity, not your tools.
  • Video Stabilization
    Turn shaky footage into smooth, pro quality video. The video stabilization engine has been rebuilt on our own from the ground up with state-of-the-art technology, resulting in a feature that is easy to use and one that gets you smooth results every time.
  • Planar Motion Tracking
    Not every object sits square to the camera. Your motion tracking should account for that. Now, Planar Motion Tracking does. Track and pin text or apply color grading to objects moving in perspective, turning toward you or away from you and changing dimensions as perspective changes. Objects not square to your camera? Use Planar Motion Tracking.
  • Nested Timelines
    Organize projects and speed up your workflow with nested timelines that you create from any events in your main timeline.  And you can still access your nested timelines as independent projects, so it's easy to share a portion of your project with a colleague while you maintain control over the master project.
  • Smart Split Edit
    Removing sections of clips means one thing: jump cuts. Now, VEGAS has you covered with Smart Split. Choose the section you want to remove, and Smart Split not only removes it, but transitions the remaining events together and hides the jump cut with the new Warp Flow transition. A great, easy way to hide jump cuts.
  • Dynamic Storyboard & 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. In reverse, edits on the timeline can be synchronized to the storyboard with only one click, or automatically. Additional storyboards can also be created and used for experimental edits, alternate sequencing, or to keep track of different sections within your video.
  • Bézier Masking OFX-Plug-in
    With the powerful, flexible Bézier 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.
  • Lens Correction Plug-in
    For quick and easy removal of lens distortions, the new Lens Correction plugin leverages an extensive list of known lens profiles to automatically correct common distortions like fisheye. Just choose your camera from the list for automatic correction. Or, use manual control to correct for lenses not on the list.
  • Improved Picture-in-Picture OFX Plug-in
    Adjust and stretch your Picture-in-Picture video in flexible new ways with the improved PIP plugin. You could always keep your video’s aspect ratio, but now you have more options for changing it – into any parallelogram with opposite sides always parallel, or as any four-sided shape by adjusting the corners individually.
  • Automatic Slideshow Creator
    The Automatic Slideshow Creator makes photo montages quick and easy. Just select your images, make some decisions about format, transitions, and duration, and generate and insert a slideshow right to your timeline. A powerful and convenient tool for all types of videographers.
  • Visualize Stabilization Motion Tracks
    Stabilization can be a bit of a “dark art.” But now the Motion Track visualization tool helps take the mystery out of establishing your optimal stabilization settings. Activate the visualizations to provide an analysis of the video's motion so you can decide what settings will give the best results.
  • Stabilization on Event Level
    Does your footage have a case of the shakes that makes it unusable? No problem. Now streamline your workflow even more than ever with world-class video stabilization on the timeline at the event level. No more waiting for an entire media clip to process. Quickly stabilize only what you need.
  • Screen Capture
    Now record multiple computer screens and audio sources simultaneously with the Integrated Screen Capture utility. Import captured files straight to your VEGAS timeline, where it's completely synchronized and ready to edit. Perfect for video streams, instructional videos, and more.

    Easily save your colour grading settings as a LUT in .cube format, and apply it to multiple clips in your project, or use it in an entirely different project. Make your colour grading faster and more efficient than ever. Even share your color grading settings with members of your team.
  • Improved White Balance Tool
    Adding to an arsenal of powerful colour correction tools, the new, improved White Balance tool helps you dial in the perfect white balance with high precision and flexibility. Save footage from improper white balance more powerfully than ever before, or subtly adjust balance for dramatic effects.
  • Colour Match
    Match colours between clips in the highly versatile and powerful L*a*b* colour space. Select a preset or use control elements to easily select an image for custom optimization.
  • AutoLooks OFX Plug-ins
    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

Special Effects

  • Opical-Flow Slow Motion
    VEGAS Pro leverages proprietary optical flow technology for silky-smooth native slow motion. The Slow Motion OFX plug-in analyzes one frame to the next and creates intermediary frames for stunning results that couldn't be achieved before. Analyze video clips independently for stunning slow-motion sequences.
  • Warp Flow Transition
    Create an interesting Sci-fi morphing transition between clips. The Warp Flow transition analyzes the last frame of your first clip and the first frame of the next clip, then automatically creates intermediate frames which seem to morph one clip to the next for a unique, interesting effect.
  • Mesh Wrap
    Mesh Warp gives you a grid of points to map your video on. Correct distortions, or unlock your imagination and stretch and tweak your image in all kinds of creative ways for neat, sci-fi style effects. Even map your images to distorted shapes or contours. Take advantage of limitless possibility.
  • FX Masking
    Add a video effect or filter like Pixelate, then apply a mask to limit the effect to a specific portion of the video to obscure logos, license plates or faces without affecting the rest of the video.
  • Compositing Modes
    VEGAS Pro uses a multi-layer, top-down paradigm for compositing and masking, which enables you to assign tracks as parent or child tracks. Apply compositor effects to create stylized lighting and textured looks. An impressive array of compositing modes provides comprehensive options for visual design. The 3D Source Alpha mode enables you to move and rotate tracks in 3D space and use them in a stereoscopic 3D project.
  • OpenFX Architecture
