New Vegas Pro 20

VEGAS Creative Software (www.vegascreativesoftware.com) announced today a significant leap forward for its flagship VEGAS Pro product line with the launch of VEGAS Pro 20. With this update, VEGAS Creative Software adds a number of new features to further strengthen advanced collaboration workflows. There are also a number of new features that enhance color grading workflow power and efficiencies directly on the timeline.

With the launch of VEGAS Pro 20, VEGAS Creative Software has added powerful new cloud features to its VEGAS Hub collaborative platform. The File Drop feature enables creators to upload files directly into VEGAS Hub from any connected mobile device or desktop system anywhere in the world. An editor simply invites a collaborator – another editor, cinematographer or anyone who has media to share on a project – to upload files into VEGAS Hub. From there, the editor imports them directly into a project through the VEGAS Hub Explorer window. VEGAS Pro 20 also adds Automatic Project Collections which pull all of a project’s assets together for instant organization. Content creators can quickly and easily access all media files from any of their projects, and also have the ability to instantly archive their projects.

VEGAS Pro 20 adds powerful new color correction features to the Color Grading panel that enable creators to produce stunning looks, fine-tune the color to match the emotion of their sequences, and gain full control of colors. Hue Adjustment color curves make it easy to isolate a specific color in a video and change it to a completely different color, while Temperature and Tint controls make it easy to achieve the perfect white balance. This development is the latest in a series of color workflow enhancements from the VEGAS Creative Software team, as they strive to make the color correction workflow as seamless as possible, saving editors significant time and tedium from having to constantly switch platforms in the middle of an edit.

VEGAS Pro 20: Advancing Audio Production

With deep roots and a breadth of experience in audio production technology, the VEGAS Creative Software development team is also strengthening what is already a compelling and sophisticated audio production feature set which has made VEGAS Pro the top choice of audio-centric content creators and musicians worldwide. With today’s announcement VEGAS Pro 20 adds support for the VST3 industry standard audio plug-in software interface that integrates software effects units into digital audio workstations. VST uses digital signal processing to simulate traditional recording studio hardware in software. This new feature will be in beta at launch and available to users for testing.

When he is not touring, or streaming live on Twitch, Jason is an experienced Content Creator in the music community who relies on VEGAS Pro to edit his pre-recorded mixed compilation sets. Jason had this to say about the new release of VEGAS Pro 20:
